    Atzporsche:


    For you maybe, but the populus is going white again from silver hehe.



    Black is sweet but I clean and buff too much.



    I'm still in love with all darker blues.. especially BMWs carbon black (very dark blue) No idea why.






    I'm with you on carbon black! I ordered the E92 M3 in carbon black when it first came out before even seeing the real thing as I was so impressed with it. And now my new 7 series will be carbon black too. Wished 991 could be ordered in that!

    I agree on Carbonblack. I´d say at Porsche Atlas Grey comes the closest? Smiley

    Re: Ladies and gentlemen, the new 991...

    Now that's one of the most boring color ever. One of the million shades of greyish silver paint Porsche mixed up.

    Wish Porsche would make a color like the BMW Individual citrus black.

    Re: Ladies and gentlemen, the new 991...

    Anyone know if this is Platinum Silver or GT Silver?  Looks stunning!


    Re: Ladies and gentlemen, the new 991...

    I'm pretty sure it is platinum as that is the colour they have used for both the brochure and Franfurt launch cars.


    Re: Ladies and gentlemen, the new 991...

    Lain,

    by any chance, is there a picture (same res) with the "stock" wheels on a platinum sliver 991 ?

    looks awesomeSmiley, I am sure you cant wait, congrats !

    thank you


    Re: Ladies and gentlemen, the new 991...

    Hey, they're having the white blinkers now on the sides... is that legal now in the US, or are these EU spec cars?

    Re: Ladies and gentlemen, the new 991...

    Good eye noticing the clear blinkers Joost, I missed it.  Most dealers here in the US will gladly replace the yellow plastic over the blinkers for clear if the owner asks them to.  Is it legal?  Maybe not but I've never heard of anyone being stopped because if it.

    Re: Ladies and gentlemen, the new 991...

    Judging by the number plate holder it is the Euro spec car on display. The US spec will probably have the orange blinker glass + the smaller number plate area. Thanks god that the bumperettes seems to be history in the US though smiley

    Re: Ladies and gentlemen, the new 991...

    ISUK:
    I've had a total of 7 white cars in the last 5 years John and just decided an 8th was one too many. The other deciding factor was that white has been very popular on the 997 GTS so I had to consider that there may be a large number of white cars on the used Market when I want to sell my 991. I've switched to the Carrera Classic wheels as I don't think the black wheels work as well against a silver car.

    Iain - I understand your logic perfectly.... 7 white cars is a lot..Smiley

    As far as the GTS is concerned, there are certainly a lot of photos on the net in white, but in over 9 months of ownership and covering 8000 miles across the UK, I've yet to see another GTS in white!  In fact I've only seen two on the road in total - one in black and the other in silver...Smiley

    To my mind silver is the colour which makes Porsches appear ubiquitous (all models), in the same way that 'guards red' did in the 80's/90's.

    Re: Ladies and gentlemen, the new 991...

    You don't want to drive around the Cotswolds then John  I drove by 2 white 997 GTS coupes over there last week and then on my way home I had a white 997 GTS cab pass me in the opposite direction about 5 miles from my home. According to the guys at my local Silverstone OPC Carrera white has been, and still is, extremely popular. They had around 6 new cars in it waiting to go out a couple of weeks ago.

    I really like the colour but just need a change. Racing yellow appealed as a bit of a left field choice until I was told about a yellow 997 GTS cab that has been sat around in UK stock, unsold, for the best part of a year. Someone will get a bargain on it I'm sure at some point but it reinforced my fear that yellow just does not sell here. Of the three 997 models I had two were Basalt and one was Artic. The silver car was by far my favourite but I agree it became too popular. Over the last couple of years though it has faded away on new cars and been overtaken by black and grey.

    I blame Porsche for offering us all such a boring and very limited choice of colours smiley

    Hi ISUK

    My local dealer just informed me that those exclusive options are only available for production in May 2012.  I am not sure she is right or wrong.......

    She is getting confused between the optional production line fitted Exclusive items - coloured seatbelts, embossed Porsche crests, coloured instrument dials etc - with the special request Exclusive items such as contrast stitching, deviating leather or carpet colours, paint to sample etc.

    Hi ISUK I discussed with my dealer this morning. My dealer sent their internal ordering system screenshot to me. I found there is a time restriction for some items such as Porsche crest embossed on head restraints, Lids of storage bin with logo....and so on. However, the time restriction show 12/04/2011 (Available as of). The official release date is 3 Dec. 2011 so I guess the restriction will off from 4 Dec. 2011. My dealer will double check again the date 12/04/2011 mean 4 December or 12 April

    Re: Ladies and gentlemen, the new 991...

    We saw those restrictions as well but the system has accepted my order with all options for a December build slot. Porsche GB confirmed that all options shown on the UK configurator are available to order now so time will tell.


    Re: Ladies and gentlemen, the new 991...

    Thanks. ISUK Let's wait and see. By the way, any idea regarding the new Agate Grey? My dealer said she personally like the new Agate Grey very much and think it's quite similar to the old Atlas Grey. I doubt it looks like the Atlas Grey....
