    2E86401D-DF8C-47F0-B2D8-555B86B9FC09.jpegThanks guys. I might still go for a PTS but i like the cool looking GT Silver on the 992 which in my opinion has a more modern design than the (beautiful) 991. Not 100% sure yet whether the back lights should be darkened (no red) or not. I kind of like the red accents (brakes etc) though. The configurator does not show the black accents for GT3 i ordered which should include black window frame (instead of chrome) and dark exhaust tips.

    Given the limited number of 992 GT3 sold in California, this will impact very few cars. 

    What are you talking about?  California is by far the largest GT3 market in the US, which is the largest GT3 market in the world...

    And 70% of 991.2 GT3's in the US were Manuals...

    Yes, the volume is small by Honda Civic standards but it's a very significant percentage of GT3's...

    Grant, the number of manual GT3’s sold in CA is very small to Porsche considering how many Porsche  cars are sold in CA. Also, many of the manual buyers will switch to PDK. The impact on Porsche will be minimal.Smiley

    I'm not worried about Porsche taking a big financial hit over this immediately, but it will anger/alienate many of their most die-hard enthusiasts.

    It really isn't Porsche's fault that California's government was busy doing other useless things instead of updating an ancient noise standard.

    Literally the whole world is using the new noise standard except California.

    There is no alternative for Porsche. The regular 7 speed manual probably could have passed but there is no easy way to mate that to the GT3, and even if they did, Californian enthusiasts are going to diss Porsche for putting that 7 speed in a GT3.

    Re: 992 GT3

    People are still paying some interesting numbers for a pen when everything can be digital nowadays kiss same goes for watches and the list can go on and on...Manual cars are still of big interest, this is why Porsche is still proposing it. Remember they are the master at profit and still producing these is not cheap.

    So apparently the US configuration is saying no availability of the manual touring until 2020 due to the global chip shortage. Yep, that’s right, this is affecting the manual availability. Hmm…, what am I missing please?

    Re: 992 GT3

    Still convinced that the 991.2 GT3 Touring looks far better and sounds better. No doubt I will give in when the 992.2 version comes out angry - assuming they let me have one.

    The GT3's rear is not it's forte in the 992, with that busy rear and awkward wing, and having the Touring in the same picture next to it only makes it worse, I get that with the GT3 form follows function more and its a car with a purpose, but this time around function is specially hurting the form, the Touring is so much better looking.

    Re: 992 GT3

    A GT3 is probably a bit too hard-core for my aging body and impulsive driving talent. But regarding the GT3 or the GT3 touring, the first one is the real thing, like it or not. The second one is a variant made for looks, not pure performance. So if I’m crazy enough to spring  for one of these, I’m going for the real deal. Neighborly onlookers can take it or leave it. If they don’t like it because it’s different, they can shove it up their rear wings.

    I think the light bar at the rear is an element that doesn't work on the GT3, it adds too many horizontal elements.
