Default Carbon Fiber for GT3?

I just saw a black GT3RS with carbon fiber hood, roof, mirrors and wing. I loved it.

I have a black GT3 coming in. Is it possible to purchase a Porsche made carbon fiber hood and wing to replace the current ones? Would this impact (harm, help, or neither)- the resale value?

if Porsche doesn’t sell them- what are the after market alternatives and their impact on resale too?

thx in advance!

Wow those prices are much more reasonable. Got a quote from Techart $10k for lip, airblade, rear diffuser and tailpipe kit.

Funny- I thought those prices were high. The Porsche W package seems much cheaper.

You might be right. I was going by the Front lip which is $2k less but upon looking at the rest it is pretty high. Then add the type of fiber, tax and shipping. (face palm) lol

You can buy .1 GT3RS CF hood prime or painted for about $5K (excluding shipping) from https://www.instagram.com/sgr_automotive/

There is no OEM CF wing for your .2 GT3

Twospyders.

Isn't it amazing though how much we love carbon fiber?

I want an unpainted clear coat carbon fiber GT2 hood with the scoops for my lowly .1 GT3 but I'd also like to have that half year of tuition for USC saved up for my daughter also even though she's only 14. Lol.

Thanks for the Instagram link brother. Those guys have some cool stuff!

Who wants to start a carbon fiber business with me and create all of these parts for half the prices we see out there?

I can't imagine the manufacturing costs are half of what these guys charge. It must be marked up 1000% or something. Some broke defense industry company out there must have a spare huge autoclave sitting around out back they can't get rid of.

Hell, I love carbon fiber so much I'd eat my morning cereal out a carbon fiber bowl with a carbon fiber spoon if I could. Ha ha

I actually did my entire 991.2 GT3 all in carbon fiber, basically anything that was black on car was replaced - including my spoiler & winglets. On the exterior CF was TechArt bought through Tag Motorsports and interior CF I bought through DB Carbon - see pics from my album on Rennlist. The only OEM CF item from Porsche are the exterior side mirrors (top part). Overall I spent well over $10K for the CF on the car. Expensive, but I loved the way it looked. I did these upgrades last year and todays market you have more choices / companies to buy from.

I literally just traded in my GT3 for an RS with WP. On the resale value the dealership did not care on the upgrades at all and valued the GT3 on market demand and mileage. In either private sale or trade in, you will have buyers that love those items or immediately look away. Overall I think you should just enjoy the car and the upgrades you do to it. Lets face it that this is a depreciating asset, upgrades or no upgrades it always depends on the buyer.

The links below is my album and the other is my old GT3 being sold from the dealer.

Vorsteiner has a carbon fiber hood, and Techart makes some very nice pieces!
Here's a car we did recently with a some carbon fiber.
