Default Saw first one in the wild!

I spotted it for the first time in the wild today, in white color, it looked pretty cool. Interestingly it was entering the community I live in, so I may see it around again.

In this part of the world GT2s and Gt3s are pretty rare, even while other 911s are a dime a dozen, including turbos. Even 458s are more common. So was interesting to see the latest one this early on, entering my gated community.

Somewhere next week, a boat should arrive in Jebel Ali with 8 (!) delayed GT3s on it, so you should be able to spot a couple of other ones soon. Probably white too though!

Today, my dealer got three white GT3's. One had the white tail lights which I debated getting. Now I am glad I did not.

Looks like an albino.

Your delayed Gt3 will be white but I doubt all 8 will be that color If and when I get another 911 I am thinking yellow (having done GR b4). I go back and forth between a turbo and GT3 everyday, though clearly the n/a one will have more soul. Of course my 458 has enough soul to keep me satisfied, but the main attraction with the gt3 is it can also be my daily beater. I seriously would use it that way. With the 458 attention and parking worries make me use it less, though I have still managed 7500 kms in just 5 months.

note: I should add that the 458 goes over speed bumps like my 5 series BMW, I was in RAK the other day where I encountered some bad roads and horribly over sized and badly shaped speed bumps, which were negotiated and cleared effortlessly. Ground clearance is a concern with gt3 though and i would hate to use a lifter.
