Default Help Please - Need To Spec a PTS WP 3RS in 48hrs

Hi Guys,

As the title says, I need to spec a WP PTS 3RS with Carbon Hood in 48hrs. It will be one of a very small number of PTS WP cars.

Key factors for me are:
1) A colour I love... but I would normally go black
2) Not alienating future buyers/future value
3) I am mindful of the big contrast with all the carbon including the hood.
4) It would be cool but not required to go with something that has special porsche heritage. Again this ainít required

I am currently debating between:
- A lovely medium to dark grey... open to metallic or non metallic
- A blue like Voodoo

Please note I am not a fan of colours like Ruby, shades of yellow or shades of green.

Advice and supporting pics would be greatly appreciated.

Is there a reason you donít suggest any metallic colours?

Pearl white I think is nicer than onyx I think.

If you want a grey, to me on a 3RS grey Black is a 997 RS color.

There are a ton of blues. The closest to Voodoo is club blau to my eyes.

I would be very interest to see airfield blue. If it is RAF Blue, that is a great color.

Grigio Telesto
I wish I had the time to go and physically see the paint sample options. I remember there used to be a PTS directory here. Can anyone share the link?

Grigio Telesto looks good... I am finding it hard to tell the difference it and slate.

Signal yellow. The contrast with the carbon would be so good.
