    the side decals are awful


    Re: OFFICIAL: 991.2 GT3 RS (2018)

    Side decals for black cars are a bit weird.. in the 2d configurator they look like silver, but on the 3d they look more matt-black.  I wonder what they really are?

    In my 3D config it looks silver/greyish. (Mac OS/Safari)


    Re: OFFICIAL: 991.2 GT3 RS (2018)

    Lizard and gold looks good Eric! That or black/gold would be my choice.

    Re: OFFICIAL: 991.2 GT3 RS (2018)

    If you go with a Lizard and gold, you’ll need to have several gold chains around your neck to finish the “look”.

    I’ve spec’ed mine and it will be LG with satin black wheels plus the LG trim around the wheels. I also used the launch car interior. To me it is the best combination for this car. The only item I did not agree with was the PCCB’s.

    C'mon, Nick...lizard and gold are perfect for a car like the GT3 RS.

    LG trim around the wheels? My daughter likes that too. Smiley

    all those configs look great. guys, i am getting jealous::)))


    Re: OFFICIAL: 991.2 GT3 RS (2018)

    You would be amazed on the number of compliments I receive regarding the GR trim around the wheels on my .2GT3. They add a different dimension to the look of the car especially with black wheels.

    Re: OFFICIAL: 991.2 GT3 RS (2018)

    I made the configuration at the dealer . When safe for the moment . LG with satin black rims with the green trim . 

    I will have to see the car live in geneva next week and see if I change anything .

    The '' gold'' rims are actually not gold. they are Aurum, which is more bronze . I like the color ......

    Black with Aurum rims would be another great choice for me , just a bid  '' dommage '' that it takes away on all the details of the RS . On a GT3 it would work perfectly .

    ...all due credit to Chris Harris! Smiley


    Re: OFFICIAL: 991.2 GT3 RS (2018)

    I think Harris got brighter more metallic wheels than Aurum.  I think he got some other color through Exclusive...

    Excellent point!

    When I sold the .1GT3 because of the questionable utility of the car on public roads, I bought a 2017 Targa 4S. Beautiful car but it lacked the sound, rawness and excitement that the GT3 gave me. I decided to once again try the GT3 and bought the .2. I love the car despite the fact there are very few places for me to give it a spirited workout. I do work it out but my options are limited. However, even at lower speeds the car is a blast to drive. The RS will be a step above the GT3 and I owe it too myself to experience it. I recognize it will be less compliant on the road and more track focussed but it more than compensates for itself in appearance and performance.

    I have come to understand,that not owning a raw exciting car is like missing an important ingredient for my happiness.Smiley

    Smiley. The key difference you will notice is that the handling on the GT3RS is just razor sharp. Truly the "cornering on rails" feel.

    The Porsche plug in doesn't work on Macs period. After all these times they still haven't figure it out.

    3D-config Works great on Mac if you expand to full screen Smiley

    Still not very impressive that the configurator doesn't work in standard mode and that they still use this old plug-in. It loads the cpu like crazy and fan run full speed Smiley


    Re: OFFICIAL: 991.2 GT3 RS (2018)

    Yeah, the plugin is rubbish. I did try it full screen the other day as someone had written that it worked like that, but it just locked my machine solid. I can dual-boot it into windows anyway, so just run it via IE there.

    With full screen on my Mac I get a nice clear picture and in 3D mode. But I can't figure out how to save the picture from the full screen shot.yes

    I did manage to save the painted interior trim which looks like this. I prefer the unpainted which is the same plastic(?) pieces on the LWB. That looks better.

    I went back to the picture tried again and was able to save it. Now you can see the difference. The carbon (plastic) looks better.
