    What do you think?

    Doesn't look like I'm getting that RS. The guy who wants to cancel his order wants me to pay a premium to get his order. We are looking at 20-40K and more likely 40k plus. I can do 20 but certainly not 40k. If I can't get it, I was thinking of getting 2007 C4S cab in this new color called crystal silver. I've seen it and it's nice. Almost looks white. Much better than the artic silver which can seem washed out. Terrocata interior with carbon fiber with x51 package. In addition, I have my 2007 GT3 wheels, which I had powdered colored Anthracite (gunmetal grey). Of curse the car has to be lowered. I spec this car and it's going to cost well over 125K. I have a buyer for my C2S cab already, so I waiting to make this move. Just still waiting for RS a little longer. Disappointing, but life still good.

    Re: What do you think?

    Whatever you do, your proposed spec for the C4S cab sounds DYNAMITE.... Except for the CF, I think that stuff looks cheap. But the color combo with the wheels sounds knockout..

    There's something about paying "premiums" that rubs me very wrong. It's not the money, it's the principle... I realize that its a free market, supply and demand, yada yada... But I just couldn't stand it knowing that I'm tossed in with all the other idiots throwing their money around carelessly over just a car. There's a fair price, and that's MSRP. The dealers and the factory and everyone in-between do very well at that price. Above that price is where the suckers and the hopelessly insecure "gotta be the first on my block" people reside. Hold out, if on principle alone. There will be other GT3 RS's out there. They're rare, yes, but these cars tend to turn over like holiday fruitcakes.

    Re: What do you think?

    Instead of a "well over 125k C4S cab", maybe get a turbo cab? That's what I'd do anyway. Good luck.

    Re: What do you think?

    Have you considered a Turbo? It seems like you are all over the place as to which car you want.

    The turbo cab will be at premium price. A fully loaded turbo is probaly between 140-145 then add 10k on top of that for the cab.

    Re: What do you think?

    mvn, sorry but I really don't get that one , honestly I have thought about this in a darkened room , consulted the oracle, phoned my Mum, sister, mate & a few work colleagues & NO-ONE gets it either............. why you would ever want a 997RS if your other choice is a 997C4S Cab, chalk & cheese.
    Think, think.........
    Ah I have seen the light, you want them both together, both ends of the spectrum united?????????????????????

    Re: What do you think?

    I don't understand why you want a 4. I'm with Bossnine on the carbon fiber. (Even Porsche acknowledges that it's just plastic and purely decorative, and not lightweight like many think).

    Re: What do you think?

    My airplane is made from real carbon fiber/epoxy composite structure and I go to great lengths to make sure it doesn't show and is painted white. I would **never** have any carbon fiber trim (interior or exterior) on my cars, bikes or airplane. Just MHO

    Re: What do you think?

    The RS will cost me 200,000. 40k over sticker. RS is out of the question. I have a GT3. Don't want to get rid of it. If I can't get an RS, I would like to get a convertible, C4S cab with wide body is something I have considered. I do have a C2S cab. Sold it. So gotta get something to replace it. Turbo cab, $$$$ and I would be way down on the list including the fact the car won't be released for awhile.

    Re: What do you think?

    did you consider getting a totally different car not another 997...variety is nice IMO

    Re: What do you think?

    You'll feel like a chump when your RS depreciates $80K in four years. Get the Turbo cab. You'll be happy.

    Re: What do you think?

    Crystal Silver is NOT in the available color pallette for the 911 unless you opt for Paint to Sample...however the deadline has passed for MY07 PTS.

    Crystal Silver is only in the Cayenne color pallette.

    Who is feeding you this mis-information???

    Keep your cab and enjoy your GT3....

    Re: What do you think?

    please,show me your gt3 wheels gunmetal grey!!!!

    Re: What do you think?

    ...there will be some changes in exterior colors for 997 and 987 models from August 2007. Crystal Silver will replace Artic Silver...

    Look at this pic...

    these are pics from new available colours from august? the boxster seems white...so is new crystal silver??!!no facelift so....

    Re: What do you think?

    Today's "RS" is another marketing package for Porsche. Any resemblance to the 911RS of yesteryear is in name only. As such, there are plenty of them out there,--they are holding back production numbers a little to convey a sense of "limited production." Ha. If it was such an exclusive car you would then be forced to drive it little or rarely because you would be eroding it's value down the road.

    Get something you will enjoy daily. We should never get into the mentality that an automobile is a special investment.

    While the C4S is a beautiful car, as a cabriolet, it takes up even more trunk space than the C2S does, so you lose a lot of space in there when going on a trip.

    What do you think?

    Crystal Silver is new? My 06 Cayenne is Crystal Silver Metallic, a $495 option.
