    Ok, last one at home.  Difficult color to capture but not going to be everyone's taste.  That the price of being different. 

    What others think does not matter.

    Congrats!

    Re: OFFICIAL: New 991.2 GT3 (2017)

    Thanks for the compliments.  I am delighted with the how the car turned out.  The wheels are the standard silver high gloss. The color is an old school 70s Porsche offering and I like the "ghost" Fuchs look of the standard wheel as the spokes get lost in the black finish.  But you know as they say, chacun a son gout. By the way I've been letting my wife do a lot of the break in driving.  Very difficult to modulate the accelerator.

    DaveC , you car looks fantastic kiss Even the silver rims suit the car, probably because there is black in between on the sticker  blush The sticker looks good too and gives character to the car,  is a nice reminder of the 70's graphics

    Re: OFFICIAL: New 991.2 GT3 (2017)

    There was a lot of confusion over my CXX requests between Exclusive and my dealer and none of them made it to the car. Just as well I suppose since it's nothing I can't do locally if I decide it's that essential.  At present the car looks great.  I may get the gloss black sensor on the roof painted body color but that could not have been done CXX anyway.  My love affair with Porsche began in the early '70s as a teenager and so the 73-74 IROC RSRs, along w/ the 73 RS,  have been my Porsche inspiration for many years now.

    Hi Dave,

    what do you mean by lot of confusion for the CXX?

    Indeed, it looks really cool.

    the roof sensor is painted in gloss black? enlightened terrible...thanks regulation, none of the ROW cars has this horrible thing.

    How come they managed to legislate to have a certain type of radio in all cars? Sounds very strange heart

    Is there some other reason for it?

    Finally told I can't get 991.2 GT3 by my OPC. Seems at least two went to flippers from this dealership. Was told production stops in April resuming in August with the new PP filter.

    Really disappointed. crying

    It’s simply about money, not legislation.  The XM Satellite company pays Porsche to include Satellite radio, so more customers will buy subscriptions.  They give 3 months free then want you to pay.  They have been calling me 5 times a week...

    Thanks!  I love that the chartreuse has some olive tones in different lighting.  Guess we are lucky to get PTS since it seems that PAG has pulled the plug again.

    Sorry to hear that, bud..

    Porsche is making more GT3's after August with the filter. Cant see that happening, jmo though Smiley..

    The Letter of Intent on the RS.2 seems to be pretty much invite too Smiley, many have had the NO already..

    Did you get on the RS.2 list?..

    I find this puzzling. The antenna is hardly noticeable and is tastefully designed. Think airplane.Smiley

    If you fixate on it, it will bedevil you. When I look at my car, I don’t see it. All I see is the goal car. So much so, I cannot tell you if it is painted in the color of the car. I would have to go out and look but I really don’t care. enlightened
