Default GT3RS Combo.. Thougths? Chalk(or Black)/WP/Mag

Hi All, I know there are a ton of amazing specs out there and I am super lucky to be able to do this, we got an allocation as part of a media campaign we are running. I have not had a 911 in a really long time so this will an interesting experience. My friend wants the car after me so we are trying to agree on something and came down to these 2 options. Just hoping to pick everyone's brain, I am usually a big blue guy but Miami blue is just too light and PTS is out for now. So, its between Chalk and Black... I like both but need some help deciding. Thanks and chat soon. Joe




Black with WP and MAG

Hard to go wrong with black but the chalk looks more distinctive. The contrast is much sharper esp w/ the hood.

I think they are both cool, if I can only choose one I would probably do black, and have the hood in exterior colour and deletion of model designation on the side.

808 was indefinitely suspended back in August. The only way you can order Weissach package is 909 which has a painted hood.

Joe i would really reconfirm from the front hood is coming in CF.. Porsche has cancelled that and front hoods are coming body color now, although the configurator is showing carbon.That will be very crucial to your choice of color.
That being said, i have seen the chalk and though i love the color, the RS looks a bit flimsy in that color. I would chose the black out of the two, otherwise a more lively color!
Cheers,
Wael

Black because without the exposed CF hold the vents look odd on every other color.

To each their own but my opinion would be. If you have to do WP then Black is the only color. I don’t care for the WP on any other color as I think the black frunk hood makes the car look cheap and way too boy racer. We were doing black hoods in the 90’s to get that racer look so my brain is fried from that and can’t get a $200k car to look like a $12k car. Having said that chalk is my favorite color so I would order chalk without WP.

When I picked my car up last week my sales advisor laughed at how low the msrp was

195k

I told him it drives exactly the same as the 260k cars

I'd do black without WP

As for chalk..I don't get paying Porsche for a different color

In 2016 people were salivating over PTS black RS..for 997 and 991

Now it's free

That Chalk spec looks perfect.

UV on 991.1 RS is still amazing though!

100% black. Looks menacing, and chalk really isn't a color.

Love the feedback, thank you. I was hoping for the exposed hood in carbon on black it would look menacing but now hearing that 808 is gone versus the 909 might have to go back to the drawing board. The main reason I am getting this car is to have something to take to 2-3 track days and drive to client or office type events, I can't always take the F cars out, too much attention. I might have to also reduce the MSRP on this beast, its super high right now and I am not sure I will need it all. Back to the drawing board.. hmm.. white with no decal might be cool.
