    Red with red Stripes? I want it to blend in like a normal 911, but I also want to make sure I have every option clicked since it's a collectors car.


    Re: OFFICIAL: 911 R (2016)

    for me, stripes not wanted as they distract attention from the scalloped bonnet and roof

    For me, red or green , the stripes look cheap...

    Such a great car but white, stripes and silver wheels don't match at ll imo.

    IMO the main red or green body stripes only look good on the white car. The side stripes not at all, but there in no accounting for taste...

    You are right! 

    And actually - if I would own a 991 I would change the bumper and rear view towards this look. 

    And you can be sure that a lot of owners will go to put those stickers on top of their 991.

    Re: OFFICIAL: 911 R (2016)

    Same. September build for the SMFW. On the dealer's configuration web page there is a little black clock icon advising delayed build date with this option. Then my car gets on the boat to the Southern Hemisphere. November it is then. Will still be driving the car in 15 years time so I can wait a few months.

    It could happen to anyone!

    Smiley It takes some trained skill to talk to a person inside the car and drive fast at the same time. One reason I fully concentrate on driving when doing stuff like that, no talking, no listening to music (I noticed that the typical driving music kind of raises the level of being reckless...or too fast, no kidding), 100% focusing. 

    This is why I admire Chris Harris so much, he has a very special talent (talking and driving at the same time) and this is why we don't see many similar driving reports like his. He is pretty unique!

    According to people who know AP, he is a pretty good driver, so...Smiley

    Re: OFFICIAL: 911 R (2016)

    If you want to train on driving fast then try to move the driving to your subconcience.
    One way to do that is counting backwards from 100 to zero while driving on the track.

    My exercise is to keep a running commentary (talking out loud) of what I'm doing and why while on the track.

    I never realized the competition is having secret weapons . Now I know why you are all so fast , and it has nothing to do with the color of the car, that was just a trick to mislead me Smiley

    I will have to up my game . Does doing complicated mathematic calculations during cornering help ?

    other than no drinking alcohol, now no talking and no listening to music while driving.  I wonder what else I have been doing wrong all these years... Smiley
