    Grant, yellow is a good color. Very sporty and eye catching. If you want to dress down bland Porsche styling, just get the exterior in Silver. Silver is meh.Smiley

    Good idea!  I like flying under the radar (I wish I could literally- lots of radar tickets in the mountains here)

    I just wish they'd updated the wheels for the facelift, I don't think any generation before has shared the wheels of the older generation car. Smiley

    If you change to 5 lug hubs then you've solved that problem.  Smiley

    You still gonna change hubs after 10000km's tracking so you might as well change them to 5 lugs when you get the car. That way you also saves money on not needing to change the CL's...

    Me too. I've never been a fan of the 991 wheels. I much preferred the ones on the 997.2

    I'd love a setup like this, it's still CL but on BBS 19's. Looks better and tires are cheaper.

    Something looking too much aftermarket isn't exactly something positive... Smiley

    There are aftermarket parts which look good and "fit" the car but when they look too much aftermarket, well...

    Of course you know that but you just enjoy rattling my cage, I get it. Smiley

    Re: OFFICIAL: New 991.2 GT3

    Well yes and no, I get your point of course. But you've got 'good' aftermarket, and 'bad' aftermarket.

    BBS Motorsport wheels are quality products and serve the car an actual purpose, hence it's in the 'good' camp as far as I'm concerned. Smiley

    Re: OFFICIAL: New 991.2 GT3

    What wheels are on the 991 CUP car ? They look much better than the OEM, IMO.


    Re: OFFICIAL: New 991.2 GT3

    Agreed, they look brilliant but think they're 18", wouldn't work with the brakes. PCCB even requires 20" these days.

    Re: OFFICIAL: New 991.2 GT3

    They are 18" aluminum Motorsport wheels. 5 lug for the Clubsport and centre lock for Cup cars.

    Don't think they will clear the stock steel brakes though, much less PCCB.

    Indeed, stock steel calipers are bigger, they require minimum 19", 20" for PCCB.

    Re: OFFICIAL: New 991.2 GT3

    Correct. 18" wheels only clear the race car brakes which are more compact  PFC units.  

    Gauss, you can have BBS make you something similar in 19" or 20" if you want to spend another $10k. :(


    Re: OFFICIAL: New 991.2 GT3

    RC,

    I agree the new styling is a bit disjointed.  All the new bumper lines are very sharp and small radiused.  But Porsches all gave soft curves and the 991.1 styling matched that.  For the 982 and 991.2 refreshes, Porsche is trying to add creases and sharp edges.  Problem is that no Porsche has ever had these features. 

    I was in the process of putting together some photos to show this.  991.1 RS remains the best looking model despite the pronounced jaw front bumper. 

     


    Re: OFFICIAL: New 991.2 GT3

    Yes it is 18" and  sexy :

    Re: OFFICIAL: New 991.2 GT3

    the only Point I have is that a 911R is not available and and more a collectable and the GT3 is produced around 4 x more.... - still limited but much more "accessible"

    According to Whoopsy, it actually was pretty resilient on track (surprisingly the tires didn't melt with all that weight/speed).
