Now I am curious what's your solution for the reflectors? Most of us agree the red reflector's need to disappear. Beside painting anyone else has any other idea's?

Mine is still a year away, but it sounds like I won't be disappointed. Congratulations!

It looks like black wheels, fire extinguisher, red seat belts, PDLS, and the free options. Anything I'm missing?
Sure.

Build sheet:-

White
Standard interior black alcantara
Sound package plus
Fire extinguisher
Luggage net passenger footwell
Mobile phone prep
Floor mats
Porsche communication management incl navigation
Wheels painted black
Seat belts guards red

I'm thinking the HLs would also look great in black. Photoshop anyone?

Going to remove and wrap them. See if it 'works'.

I agree.

the new light are quite dark but not the black ones you can option with the LED PDLS plus for $3k.

Not sure how different the black look is between led PDLS+ and bixenon PDLS ($700 option).

For me the bottom line was this is a track car with street use to drive to said racetracks. I'm not trailering it. It won't win a cars n coffee cup, it'll hold its own tho, no bling options selected. This said I'm really impressed with the standard interior in black which has silver stitching and looks really nice.

I went with black wheels because they don't show brake dust so easily.

I didn't go with the optional lights mainly because I didn't want to add anything that could go wrong (thought long and hard about the front lift for example but decided against it...less weight and no wait it would develop issues if its not there!).

FLM911, Many Thanks for the pictures you posted. GORGEOUS CAR!!! Your build very similar to mine, and standard interior looks MUCH nicer than I expected with the contrasting stitching. 3 more weeks to go for
my delivery. They will pass VERY slowly!!! LOL - How much does the wing restrict the view through the inside rear view mirror? Is your sight line above or below the wing? Is the wing angle adjustable?
What is your serial number? Did you also opt for larger 90L Fuel Tank? Have you found a good switched take-off point for the Radar Detector power lead? Thanks again for your posts.

White looks the part for the GT3. All other colors are good choices, but the clean look of white shows the shape of the car well. I have a 991 in white and gave some thought to a different color for the GT3, but I absolutely love looking at my 991. I may be out of the norm, but white actually captures my gaze longer, looking along the shape of the car, following the lines and curves. White is right .

FLM911: Gorgreous car. Do you live in the Atlanta area? Someone had written Alpharetta. Anyway, I'm in midtown Atlanta and have a March - May '14 expected build. Congrats on a gorgeous car. If you're ever in the downtown Atlanta area, please email me at [email protected] -- I want to see that awesome car in the flesh! What a great early Christmas present. Well done.

Richard, you can always make a road trip to AMP if you want a track that's open
