    Awesome, Frank!  Wish I could have had PTS.  What color for you?

    Congrats kiss

    Although I thought that PTS was off the table for the GT3 ? Or is this a country-specific option ?

    I have a friend who is like this with his cars, he is just OCD about his sportscars, after a drive he has to clean them for example, and if it may rain he won't take them out Smiley 

    Once per year or twice , but power washing  under body each week during winter in order to get rid of salt . Mind you my friend with his GT4, seating on styrofoam in heated garage Smiley.

    That is brilliant Frank! Quite a worthy replacement of the RS me thinks! (Although I loved your RS mate, that thing was awesome!)

    I knew when I post my comments I would get push back. When is the last time any car manufacturer introduced a model covered with dirt? Unless caught in an unexpected rain storm, why in the world would anyone be driving a high performance sport car in the rain especially if they also own a SUV?

    As simple as when I buy a car, I dictate when and where I would use it, my driving habits will not be dictated by the weather.

    Thats why I got winter tires on the 918 too, cause if I feel like driving it when I woke up, the white stuff outside will not stop me.

    Nick, you use the car for intended purpose. Your 918 though all weather, its intended purpose is performance. What's the point of driving a 918 in the snow especially since you own several cars that are suited for that purpose?

    The same purpose of driving a GT3 around traffic or highway in La Jolla? Smiley

    Be gentle. I am sure Nick can find a short stretch of road and maybe a turn or two where he gets the chance to explore 5% of what the GT3 can do SmileySmiley

    the stretch of road needs to be scanned for puddles first:::)))

    Nothing had to be specified as build slot is only spring 2018 due to the combination of manual & PTS. The color just needs to be PTS-approved. That said, even if it was specified it would remain a surprise. Smiley

    I cannot remember when I washed my car by hand (I mean really by hand...) last time, maybe a couple of years ago (I think the 997 Turbo was the last and I only did it because I had one of my kids helping me).

    It takes too much time. I understand why people do it but I barely have time to drive my car, so my loose it by cleaning it?! Smiley

    Try to BUY a car instead of your numerous leasing deals and I'll guess you'll treat the car different, even when washing it...?Smiley

    For me, a car is an object, a toy, a thing. I don't even name my cars and I do not get emotionally attached to them (my daughter does though but my R8 is the first car she actually named...). I owned cars before (not leased them) but same thing. A car is a car. Nothing more. I would probably think differently about a 918 or a LaFerrari when I plan to collect them, don't know, never collected cars.

    It is too bad Porsche does not offer more exciting non-metallic colors, like they did in the 70s. Now every color seem to be some variation murky moss forest metallic.

    Nothing bad about black Smiley but, it looks like at least half of the used 911 cars are black in Switzerland. The rest dark gray and silver. Then white. Then 1 yellow and 1 red indecision

    There are so many beautiful Porsche colors from the 70s which suit the 911 shape very well Smiley I have decided on mine. PTS next time. Soonish maybe Smiley Enough said.

    Fits a GT3 or GT3 RS better in my opinion.

    Re: OFFICIAL: New 991.2 GT3

    Looks great but for a 911 Carrera GTS? I would be careful, especially if it is supposed to be some sorts of family car. Even worse when you get a convertible. Don't forget we live in Europe, not Florida.

    Well, to me - birch green would be an ideal foil job - not my cup of tea though and if it was me considering a new car, I would opt to go safe and take a popular color (like black !!! Ha,ha) and do a full car wrap. Smiley

    Re: OFFICIAL: New 991.2 GT3

    Nice photos. Lichtgrun (Birch green) is a great color and I have not grown tired of it on the .2 C2S.  I have requested it for the GT3 but whether that plays out remains to be seen.  The acid green stitching has also stood the test of time (usually I'm ready for a new car in 6 months. I would have no problems holding onto my current ride if the GT3 opportunity had not come along. Still waiting on PTS, Touring Package, and deviated stitching but my build is not scheduled for December.
