I like black a lot but I have 3 other cars in black. Black is not a color it's a hobby.
I did order full leather with orange stitching and belts.

In the end I am not willing to pay 5K to 8K for black. Black was a PTS on my '11 RS and it seems like they charged 7K for it. I bought the car off the floor and didn't order it.

I think GT Silver will look great.

Special? Maybe not. But there is just something about a black 911.

I met with dealer yesterday. She showed me the two most recent communications they have from PCNA re RS. It clearly indicates that PTS will be July/August builds. However, it also shows that buckets will delay production 10 weeks...

Not sure what it means when you combine this to the PTS comment unless they are going to prioritize PTS, which would delay other cars. That is, if the 10 weeks aren't already factored in the timelines.

There was nothing about price in the communication.

I asked what she thought black PTS would run for. In her view, it's either going to be the same as LO ($3k) or the standard PTS upcharge ($5k). So you might be able to get it below your 'no go' range...

Yikes, 10 weeks delay for LWB! Might be worth trying to negotiate sofas from factory and have them ship LWB when they are ready?

Black is the new Black for the RS.

Or ....

Black is the new PTS.


I have to laugh that my favorite color, good ole basic Vader black is free on a GT3 and expensivo PTS on an RS.

I guess black won't be available except as a weirdly optioned dealer reward car in early 2016.

Henry Ford would be proud.........an extra $5500 for the the absolute first color option, A-1.

I decided to go with black for my December build RS. I have no problems too, to dedicate myself to cleaning waxing and so on. And since I will do I hope, many
track session and considering chipping problems, black will be a nicer choice for me..
Now I have just to decide which is the best Pts black ...
