I had the PORSCHE lettering removed from my GT3. To me, it not only takes up way too much space, but is blatantly redundant. Everyone knows it's a Porsche.

As you can see in addition to being larger, it's up further and centered than the current "GT3" now that PORSCHE is gone.

You can't just take the current "PORSCHE" off and leave the "GT3" where it is.

Looks great!

Here are the pics as said. Remember these are the original 991 GT3 scripts. Tried from different distances to give scope of scale.

Isn't your logic the same with GT3 vs GT3 RS? in terms of bragging rights etc?
i agree that it looks too naked with just GT3.

I really like Macca's with the bigger 997 GT3 script sans Porsche lettering. That's how I'd do it personally. I might drop it just a hair lower because in some of those pics of his car, it looks like it might be just a tad too high and not quite centered, like maybe down a 1/4". But that also could just be camera angle. I agree with everyone, the Porsche lettering is both redundant and too busy. But that expanse of property is too big to have nothing and the 991 GT3 lettering is definitely too small to fill it properly. Though it doesn't look terrible, Easy888's looks fine, but it does look bit too small for my tastes. I think consensus agrees, 997 GT3 ala carte for the rear.

Had the dealer remove the "P O R S C H E" at delivery in January, 2014. PAG would NOT agree to doing it ... haha.

Echoing other posts, the "P O R S C H E" is makes the rear too busy and detracts attention from the "GT3" on back ... hope the "GT3RS" hangs out alone on the back ... will see tomorrow (or Tuesday) at the Geneva launch.

I guess my taste is the minority.. but I like it with the PORSCHE.. otherwise looks off and too plain.

Not just you.

I don't mind the 991 GT3 Porsche wording. I don't plan to change it.

The GT3 keeps it simple. Porsche AND 911 carrera S lettering is too much, however.

I also removed the stock rear badging and had the 997.2 "GT3" placed on the rear. Looks great and the perfect size. The stock "GT3" too small. Would not hesitate doing this. The full stock rear badging way too busy. Tried posting but for some reason all upside down - see below:

I too like the old 997 badging for that simple, understated look...

I agree with those who have removed the excessive Porsche badging from the rear of the car ,,,,it just looks like to much with it there IMO ,,,and a simple GT3 badge just looks more classy and clearly details what variant of 911 it is...........I am certain this has been mentioned before ,,but just have a look at the badging on a carrera 4 GTS ,,,it is way to much for my taste a simple 4 GTS would be more than enough .....

This is the best placement of the badge I've seen. It's perfect. You should measure the height off the top for the guys.

The 997.2 version is perfect.

Love the personalized plate.

Frame? I'd go for a clean look there too.

Fan of the "Autocross" version.

I'm with you, doesn't bother me at all. On the other hand, I think the GT3RS would look fine on it's own.
