    Love the clear tail lights. Even better with UV.

     


    Re: 991 GT3 RS

    I don't know. The clear lights look good with white and maybe even black but not many other colors. My son almost killed me when I switched to the clear lights on my 991 Turbo S. I have to admit that the choice may not have been the best, especially since the guy who bought the car from my dealer actually asked for the OEM tail lights, he hated the clear ones.

    I really don't like clear rear lights - too Fast & Furious. Looks rice IMO.

    No, I don't like them on the 911 either.  The only car I think they look good on is the Aston Martin Vantage.

    I think they're very color sensitive, I saw a black 991 that had them and thought it looked really good, but with LO it does look a bit too tuner. The wing doesn't help that either. 


    Re: 991 GT3 RS

    Age might be part of it, but it's just not the right look for the 911 IMO. clears do have a kind of tuner ethos about them

    My son is 11 and doesn't like them, so I'm not sure age has something to do with that.

    I never understood Porsche's logic or design sense with the clear tail lights.  Automotive equivalent of bad fusion cuisine .

    Very subjective. IMO they look great depending on body color, I might be in a minority but if done right I like them.

    This doesn't look bad at all IMO Smiley

    Re: 991 GT3 RS

    With a monotone palette like those clears are a little better. But imagine those same cars on the street with all the colors of other items around. Suddenly the coherence of your greyscale car on a grey background melts away and the tuner effect is back...

    I have the VIN, and the vessel name of which my car was on. That's why I know where the ship was/is. It left port yesterday to continue it's journey to the USA. 

    My dealer's Porsche system still don't have a record of it landing in Canada, still shows it's still on the vessel mail

    But I have learn another juicy tidbits. Porsche has a quality hold on all GT4 not yet delivered right now. No details yet. 

     

     Wondering what that is all about then?

    i hear also the RS at classic sport red bull event (AP car) had over heating issues and couldn't run second race. Apart entry some 991 GT3 same.

    porsche really need to get there house in order. They are producing great volume and many variants but their development has been to quick and short tracked IMO

    Lack of motorsport testing a mistake.  Said it from day one.  Hope they get it sorted before my car is delivered.


    Re: 991 GT3 RS

    I didn't like the clear lights at first, but wound up loving them. Sort of like a few women I've known along the way too!!!

     


    Re: 991 GT3 RS

    The truth behind the clear lights: Porsche wanted darker lights but it wasn't achievable with that small tail light design. So they went for the next "best" thing, the "clear" lights. True story.

    I may be wrong but I think that the new GT3 RS has darker tail lights. I was actually thinking about getting them for my GTS but since I have a Carrera 4 GTS, this would be an issue (the middle light bar would be lighter in color but maybe I can get it darker using light grey foil).

    Re: 991 GT3 RS

    Guys, I was today in the factory to do some last modifications on my order. I have seen a lot of GT3 RS all waiting for special treatment. I think more then 20 cars. 

    Now I know what happened with all these special colors and the 5 month waiting time. For this customers Porsche offered three additional colors to shorten the time. They can just paint one car per day.

    What I have also seen, hundreds of cars in Lava Orange. Everywhere you turn your head you see a LO car. 

    UV car fits the best with silver matt rims and clear tail lights. 

    Silver, white and LO with darker tail lights.

    Black rims don´t suit the GT3 RS so well.
