Red looks freakin sick and the best so far then Black.

Interesting article in the new Road and Track on the GT2 RS. I found it to be a very candid assessment that was not partial by any means

Just didnt touched to vent panel color....
Honestly the red and black are superb but im sticking to my plan...gt silver with full xpel stealth satin finish

I think he means the upgrade to full red and black leather/alcantara vs leatherette

i am GT silver also and am painting the vents smooth black and wrapping in leather.

xpel stealth on gt Silver sounds great! Any images of this on other cars?

Correct. Leather dash, door uppers, etc., instead of the molded plastic.

How does xpel stealth compare to ultimate in terms of protection?

Full leather adds that nice piece of matching carbon to the door also. I’m going to do it and think I’m sticking with the red interior too. Gonna fly out to LA in a week and see Porsche exclusive and have a chat. It’s nice to see I’m not on an island with the red interior, looks like a bunch of people are eliminating it

I don't blame them. Would you choose red if black came standard and red was a free option?

when I had a chance to chat to AP at Goodwood, I mentioned I was thinking about Crayon. He looked at me and said the GT2 needs to be silver and have the signature GT2 interior. Don’t think twice.

I thought twice and even three times about black Exterior and a black interior... in the end that chat is what made th difference. I would never choose a red interior but I finally went with GT silver to exentuate the cf and went red to match the character of the car.

Your point is a valid one. If there was a Gt2 “signature black” interior and red was a free option I would have never gone red.

I had a MY2019 allocation. As noted above (this month), PAG proclaimed that all 2019 allocations shall now be replaced with 2018 allocations. I was about to spec my car when we discovered the order stop (12/23/17, I believe) for PTS + WP.

Completely unacceptable.
If this is the case then the PTS + WP will be a very rare and exclusive car. Noted the order stop but does anyone have official confirmation in writing from PCNA or PAG that this is the case?
