Default Carrera T ordered

Iím super excited about the upcoming Carrera T or as I like to call it, the franken-911. It borrows parts from the C2S, GTS, GT3 and GT2RS and mashes it all together into the Base chassis. I think it will make for a lively drive and experience behind the already excellent Base engine.

So Iíve got mine ordered for delivery late April/early May. I have several weeks before I have to lock in my config, but Iím shooting for a very minimalist options list. So far, this is what Iím getting:
White
CT interior in red
Carrera Sport wheels
Manual
Rear axle steering
Sport Chrono clock (in red)
4-ways
pedals in aluminum
Bose/voice control

Things Iím struggling with:
White vs Carrera White vs GT silver
Leather CT interior or Standard CT interior

Thoughts on all the above?

Is it noticeably different from the regular white?

Also - anyone know if there is a weight difference between the Carrera S IV wheel vs. the Carrera Sport wheel, and if so, how much?

If you really want dramatic weight reduction at the wheels, I would look into PCCB more than wheels itself. Unless, you go aftermarket route.

Itís more of a curiosity to be honest. I canít imagine the experience will be much different between the two wheels. I tried searching around but couldnít find info on modern wheels.

Thanks! I did not pay an ADM but of course it depends on the stealership. 3 out of 4 that I spoke with wanted an ADM of $10k above MSRP citing very limited availability and very high demand. When asked what production numbers will look like, they can only give me a range of about 700-1500, production year only for 18. YMMV but will most likely be presented with an ADM.

Attached is a photo of W vs CW side by side. I will blind the viewer as to which is which - which does the OP like better?

I like the closer one which I believe is pure white which is the color of my 911.

Tough call! But I think I’m leaning towards the one on the right which I think is CW?

I'm gonna say car on right is W, car on left is CW . White is white, CW is cream.

White more sporty, CW more ... elegant?
