    I have never liked MB in person as much as in photos either.  But it is striking...

    Miami Blue will be a pricey PTS in ten years and probably the next blue collectible. Not for me but looks great...


    Re: OFFICIAL: New 991.2 GT3

    nice color for GT3

    Miami Blue will be a pricey PTS in ten years and probably the next blue collectible.

    Miami Blue is already "pricey" and the difference to PTS price is negligible when considering the overall price for the car (~1-2%). I guess the only real benefit is a faster delivery since Miami Blue is part of the current offering, but from a price point of view you might as well go for another PTS blue.

    Re: OFFICIAL: New 991.2 GT3

    Funny how the one in black is not the choice of most here. At least I would assume so.

    Very beautiful... The only reason this might make sense is for resale in 10 years when the electronics are out of date. But until then you safe a bit weight (less than 15kg, probably?), the car looks ugly und is far less usable on the street Smiley

    Well, for a pure track toy it might make sense though, right?

    No more than a car from 2007 today...


    Re: OFFICIAL: New 991.2 GT3

    That sedan's PDK stick sticks out like a sure thumb, I can't figure out why they can't have a sportier smaller version for at least the GT car instead of recycling the huge stick for all their cars

    Re: OFFICIAL: New 991.2 GT3

    The PDK stick is '' confortable '' but looks horrible and out of place in the GT cars . A thinner and smaller one would be much more appropriate . They are probably just saving a few bucks by not giving a proper one to the GT

    Re: OFFICIAL: New 991.2 GT3

    Guys,

    I'm german by heart for sure ..spending a lot of time in Germany in general anyhow :-)

    Black was always my preferred color. I didn't find a good one second hand at the time I bought the Mark I.

    Now i had the choice as I happily enjoy the nice Porsche markup.

    Will post some photos this evening.

    300km on odometer, try to not rev more than 6000 so far ... i wil waii the psycho 1000 km prior to increase to 8000 to 9000 rpm ....

    Rgds,

    Thierry

    10 years? Car electronics are outdated every 3 years and Porsche offers no upgrade for them to force you to buy a new car. Ferrari and AM offer some sort of upgrades. Tesla offers wireless upgrades...

    Of course you are right - after approx 3 years you will clearly see that there are (again) better systems on the market. I was more thinking about the point in time you can just no longer accept the functionality of an old system Smiley

    BTW, regarding Tesla: updating the navigation or other software etc. is the least concern I would have with a Tesla. The technological basis (batteries mostly but also all of the rest) will be completely outdated in 5 years or so. There is no way to update this - you can just try to het rid of it then (if possible at all)...


    Re: OFFICIAL: New 991.2 GT3

    Actually you just swap the battery, piece of cake... It has already been planned and demonstrated...

    You know about the cost of this (without subsidies from the producer as subsidies will come to an end soon)? Also, how big is the incentive to redevelop batteries for old cars? Truth is these cars will be garbage nobody will still want rather soon...

    x2 the more tech based or tech dependent the car is the worse off they are going to be with time, resale, support/maintenance, etc its just like with modern electronic gadgets... you don't upgrade smartphones, laptops, etc you have to change them for new ones, and the old ones are worth nothing by then. Resale value of these cars will be on a different league than expect. Just like comparing a smartwatch with a traditional automatic watch.
