Count me as another vote for silver center lock wheels.

We'll see if the good folks in Atlanta agree to it. I might have to get TorqueChap to plead my case.

Great looking spec, can't go wrong with the 991 Targa design. Love the NBM color and agree with most that NBM + silver targa bar + CXX silver CL wheels will look killer.

If going the silver route, I would consider changing the LEDs to the standard silver opposed to the black as well, and I would go with CF trim but just my 2 cents.

OR - going with the black wheels, black GTS/LED theme would change the targa bar to black.

I am scheduled to do euro delivery at the re-worked Zuffenhausen site in early April so I'll report back on a euro delivery recap thread

Default congrats!

That was my dream..To build this car and take ED. I just took delivery of one that happened to be "lying around". I was told it would be december before I got an ordered car. Needless to say, the car is incredible, and Im so happy I pulled the trigger too!

Yeah, I was actually in your shoes, and lucked into this one. Every dealer I spoke to was telling me, 'we'll know more this summer,' and then one called be back later that day and said, 'we just got an allocation in a dealer trade and it delivers in June. Want it?' Shopping around definitely paid off.

I'd love to hear what you think of yours -- This is my 2nd p-car (other is a 981 Spyder), but my first 911.

I opted to get the 5 lug nut S wheels so that I could change them out for the wheels that I liked WITHOUT the hassle of dealing with center lock wheels. Dealer swapped out the wheels upon delivery and gave me $$$ towards the wheels of my choice ( the 5 spoke FUCHS style wheels that came standard on the 50th Anniversary 911 ). Suncoast Porsche had a sale on the 50th wheels and my dealer matched their price.

Love em. I've made the ask of Porsche -- we'll see what they come back with. I'm surprised they charged you that much of an uplift for identical wheels in silver. Did you have to get them from the dealer post-delivery, or did Porsche Exclusive hook you up?
