The latter is the answer to your first question. Best case - no delay in production at all! PTS 991's are popping up all over!

There is also a RLister with a beautiful PTS 'Aetna Blue' 991 that he already got. You could contact Beachwood or Roslyn and ask them how long it took for their PTS orders to be processed and/or built. Remember, they were choosing pre-approved colors - 'Riviera', 'Mexico Blue', 'Etna' - and that made the difference.

I've always been a partial to silvers and greys... With 3 out of state speeding tickets in the last 6 mo probably not the time to deviate. Agree some of the pts colors would look awesome tho.

Plan on ordering Agate with black wheels, PCCBs and yellow belts and matching stitching...

Nice. After much thought, I've also come around to Agate; at least as of now.

Are you certain you'll be able to get yellow stitching? The configurator lists red stitching specifically under the "Interior" tab and in the interior leather section of the "Options" tab, but other than that I don't see a generic listing for deviating stitching. Maybe with enough $$ you can get whatever you want.

My all time favorite color is birch green. There's a 997.2 GT3RS in this color.

Yeah I noticed the only stitching listed is red. Was hoping that yellow would be added prior to ordering in June/July, but if its stupid money the belts will do. Probably will skip the front lift also... Makes you get more creative without it.

It will look great with or w/o the stitiching.

With regard to the axle lift, like you I'd be willing to chance not having it for normal driving and I'd sure rather not spend the $3400. But I scrape the fairings in front of wheels on my Carrera S on my own driveway (I've tried every possible angle) so I know the spoiler on the GT3 would make contact. That would be too irritating....

No yellow stitching initially. Perhaps later if they allow PTS & a customized interior. At first, 'Red' and another distinctive color that appears to be a 'white/silver' are the only stitching offered on the gt3's 'black' leather, alcantara & carpet interior! The 'white/silver' is default standard stitching. The optional 'red' stitching cost extra. The 'white/silver' looks very VISIBLE! It appears 'brighter' than the standard default 'grey' stitching on the black interior of a regular 991 (last photo), which doesn't seem to stand out as much! But it might be all Tromp l’oeil and my eyes are being fooled again!

Saludos,
Eduardo

I just keep being drawn back to white. Wish there were some more interesting color choices.

I want red, but guards is such a dated looking color IMHO. Carmine is more modern, but does have a lot of pink in it. Does Porsche offer a color like BMW Imola Red? Love that color! GTS red, I suppose?

If all else fails, the 991 looks very modern and sexy in white.
