    Nice, but I can't imagine telling someone my car color was fish silver.yes

    Also, I just cannot get myself to pay 11,000 dollars for PTS.  Guess I'm old and grumpy and cheap.

    A guy I know paid over 80k EUR for his Aventador PTS...just saying. Some sort of liquid metal paint, apparently very very complicated to manufacture and unique for his car.

    People who buy Lamborghini are generally more extravagant in life, often with an exhibitionist attitude.

    Porsche people are generally more reasoning and straight-thinking in their decisions.

    Having said that, I remembered that the Liquid Metal paint on the 918 Spyder cost some €50.000 extra, but that was a very special and rare model selling for next to €1 million

    Re: 992 GT3

    You can get liquid metal colors with PTS or even the more extravagant chromaflair which is above 80k EUR. You need to ask and then they have to approve it as it is painted outside the main factory.

    sign of the inflationary times - only a sucker would buy something as ugly as this gt3, even for window, and that over will be gone money when the stock market wipes out.

    the inflation helped me trading Madame's Land Cruiser for her new RSQ8:  paid $89,000, 5,000 miles, dealer trade [wholesale] in $90,000; sold one of my Ferraris:  Purchase $390,000, 2,000 miles, sold wholesale $380.000.

    It's a great time to sell -- may be I can move the heavily Idaho pinstriped Raptor!!

    Manthey presents the new performance kit for the Porsche 911 GT3 (992)  E0F26BDD-E91B-4EF4-964B-7C4204B9E420.gif

    Manthey has taken on the challenge of increasing the performance of the new Porsche 911 GT3 (992) even further and can now give some insights into the first performance kit for the 992 model range. The aerodynamics, suspension, brakes and wheels have all been enhanced to take the car’s performance onto a new level. The development process has been similar to that of the performance packages for the 991 GT3 RS and the 991 GT2 RS and does not affect the manufacturer’s warranty. The new kits are expected to become available in the second quarter of 2022.

    “The team at Porsche in Weissach presented us with a big challenge when they produced the new GT3. Our goal of improving the performance of the Porsche GT models even further for track use, without making too many changes to the car’s essential DNA, and, at the same time, coming up with an attractive package for customers who love to drive on the track, has meant a lot of work for us with the new model. Alongside the performance, I’m also really pleased with the car’s appearance,” explains Stefan Mages, head of development.

    All the technology and expertise from the world of motor sport goes into the development of the performance kits, which are designed for track use. Extensive testing and many laps on Manthey’s home track, the Nürburgring Nordschleife, were involved in the development process to ensure that the Manthey products for road cars provide the best possible performance. As well as focusing on the performance on track, the developers also put the emphasis on ensuring that the cars remain suitable for everyday use, enabling customers to make relaxed trips to track days in their GT3s.

    “The first performance kit for a new model series is always something special and I am very proud that we’re now able to present the initial results. During fine-tuning runs, the production model lapped the Nordschleife, the traditional benchmark for all sports cars, 17 seconds faster than its predecessor. That’s really impressive and I can’t wait to see how fast the car will be with the Manthey performance kit,” says Nicolas Raeder, managing director of Manthey-Racing GmbH.

    The Manthey performance kit for the Porsche 911 GT3 (992) consists of:

    Manthey 4-way adjustable suspension kit

    Manthey OM-1 lightweight rim set

    Manthey brake upgrade kit

    • Braided brake line set
    • Brake pad set

    Manthey aerodynamic package

    • Front lip/front splitter
    • Flics
    • Rear diffusor
    • Carbon rear wing, including side plates
    • Aerodiscs for the rear axle (these only fit the Manthey OM-1 rims)

    It's awful. The 991 looks so much better. Knowing that, it would explain why Porsche put gold wheels on the car. They are meant to distract the eye from the styling of the car.Smiley

    Manthey has shown restraint and few outside of the most knowledgeable of Porsche enthusiasts would know the aerodynamic appurtenances are added to the basic GT3 design.  The aero wheels are a nice little detail that harkens back to Porsche race cars from a few decades ago.

    I have a set of original BBS fans from the RSRs that we used to use. Looks amazing and made a big difference on high speed and high braking tracks.

    Re: 992 GT3

    I like how Porsche and now MR manage to ultimately increase performance and reduce the times of the 992GT3, without touching the engine.

    This IMO makes nonsense of the need for mega-HP sportscars and proves the old adage that "power without control is nothing".

    BTW I love the style of the rear wheels. A similar pattern was used on Porsche racing cars in the 1980s and on the modern 935 based on the GT2RS. The gold colour is an acquired taste, however.

    I have. Exterior was in Amethyst. The car looked fat and compressed. I think silver or white make the car look better.

    Re: 992 GT3

    I dont think there has been a particularly pretty 911 since the 993 generation.

    The italians have been out designing Porsche and teh Germans since the beginning. And lm not just talking cars!

    The GT3 & RS are tool cars. They serve a purpose. Its function over form.

    Of course its nice to have both but if you are buying them to use in accordance with the description on the lid then I dont think you let form get in the way of function.

    Porsche make a bunch of other models for all tastes.

    None of them particularly gorgeous IMO (maybe the Spyder comes close).

    If you are someone who buys GT cars only for cool factor and kudos then Porsche will have something for you shortly. LE Sport Classic....

    Re: 992 GT3

    Silver is the best color for this pedestrian looking car.

    As my wife exclaimed, "it doesn't look special". With speed monitoring technologies rapidly advancing in the police arsenal, it may be a time for Porsche to consider more form to function.
