Its hard to decide, gt silver safe bet, crayon, if mexico blue if a PTS was available but with full wraps being 5k in my area, may just do white and play around with a wrap in the future. Plan on getting my config in next month. My dealer has not gotten allocation info yet, but should be soon

PTS all the way, but don't ask me which one. If I can't get PTS, it's Miami or Racing Yellow, if Miami doesn't meet the grade.

Fingers crossed that I'll get an allocation. Right now I'm on chalk, but could also consider gt silver or black.

The nice thing about chalk is that you can bring some exterior colour inside to break up the black, if you're into that sort of thing.

Graphite Blue Metallic for me unless I luck out with a PTS. I've always loved the Chicane Grey of the McLaren with the graphite, black and carbon fiber touches and GBM seems pretty close.

Chalk/Crayon is quite a bit darker in the flesh than what the configurator suggests. See picture below: Carrara white on the left, Chalk/Crayon on the right.

chalk looks to be the most fun.

PTS in Oxford blue would be nice.
Id even consider PTS sand beige to be differnet from all the other colors.

Does Chalk/Crayon look really beige/tan to anyone else or is it just my eyes? I'm a big fan of the dull grays and had my R8 wrapped in a color similar to Grigio Telesto. I'm just seeing a lot more beige/tan tones in the Chalk/Crayon than other colors like Fashion Gray or Nardo. Don't get me wrong, it's a cool color just having a hard time nailing it down based on photos.

No fear. You will likely be able to see it on a Panny at your store before you confirm.

Black boring and too hard to keep clean, whether regular or Ker Black Metallic.

White boring, unless dressed up with some graphics. When they're done right, can look fantastic.

If you you must have white without graphics CWM has more punch. But it's a little common of Turbos and convertible cruisers.

Rhodium silver too cold.

GT Silver very classy and easy to keep clean looking. Also works well with graphics (maybe I'm biased...) but a lot of silver cars out there. Maybe too safe?

Agate too brown in the sun, kind of boring me-too otherwise. To many Metallic grey cars on the road these days.

Racing yellow a bit too glaring. I prefer Speed Yellow or Signal Yellow, but That would be PTS.

Lava Orange also a bit polarizing and loud.

Guards red classic and looks great on the launc car. Maybe it will be too common because of that?

carmine red looked great on Cayman GTS and GT4 but somehow I'm just not feeling it on the 911.

Miami Blue just isn't as attractive as Mexico or Riviera and looks too turquoise greenish in person.

Chalk/crayon very interesting especially with black accents on door handles and mirrors. Has that dipped look. Need to see in person though.

Sapphire Blue is pretty. My GT4 was SBM and looked good. But it's pretty common on lesser 911's and Caymans and Boxsters.

I guess I wish Porsche would have made a couple colors unique to the new GT3 without PTS. Maybe a good bright and dark green like Gelbrun and Irish.

GTSilver or White, w PCCBs. Spend less time cleaning and more time driving, and both look great.

My build sheet says Carmine Red. I'm 4th on my dealer's list. So, it will be late 2018, in all likelihood.

Is it with a small dealer? Is that why you say it will be late 2018?

GT Silver looks great with graphics. Here's mine with Martini....

GT Silver Metallic with Martini livery
Sapphire Blue Metallic GT4
Good looking pair.

Saw graphite blue metallic in person for the first time the other day and could not have been more underwhelmed. I would strongly encourage anyone thinking of this color to go see it in person and make sure they like it before they place their order.
