Default Striping - What do you think of this?

Saw this car for sale and I liked the striping that was done - what do you think?

I don't like it.

It should be removable if you don't like it.

I don't like it because it's trying to be a 997 GT3 4.0. Any non Porsche person will think it's odd and any Porsche person will think you are a poseur.

Just my opinion. But you did ask.

As was said above, just stickers, should be reversible if you don't like it.

I kinda like it, especially if you try to ignore the fact that it is "mimicking" another performance model. What would concern me is no SC on a PDK car and no HTD or cooled seats. No apparent PSE either, yet it has CF bits. Sort of an odd build IMO.

No likey, it induces anger, vomiting, and a terrible headache, in no particular order.

Our cars have beautiful curves and look gorgeous as is. No need for boy racer stickers, stripes and the like...

I am expressing my own opinion, of course, flame suit on and all....

I'm not a fan but that's what nice about having options.

Put the PORSCHE strip at the bottom of the doors like the R and I'm all in.

The sticker work is horrible, the PORSCHE logo on the back is not centered properly and the red seatbelts and light gray seats seem strange.

If the price is right I would buy it, even without the sport chrono.

Those stripes were standard on the 997 GT3 4.0...

I think that they look fine. Personally, I like the boy racer stickers

I'm fine with the striping and it certainly makes it stand out. That said, I don't have stripes on my car... but they are fine on other cars

There are some things about the car that seem interestingly in conflict to me though after looking at the sticker. Just some things to ask about if you move forward with it:

First, the car was bought with the Aerokit Cup package to make it look really racy, but then they didn't get Sport Chrono or PSE. Then they removed the "Cup" wing and replaced it with a ducktail (maybe the second owner?). You'd want to make sure it is an OEM ducktail, or at least a quality one. I would also think the racer function and feel of the car would work better with paddle shifters. It has some aftermarket exhaust tips, so maybe they wanted an aftermarket cat-back exhaust from the beginning and skipped the PSE for that? It would be interesting to know what exhaust is on it.

Finally, at the last moment I realize that it looks like they may have added Sport Chrono afterwards since the car has a Sport button but no "wart". This is a must for a PDK car... I'd ask to make sure it is there.

If you like it that's all it matters. i put stripes on my car and the more Porsche owners hate it the more I like it.

I like the red belts.I think that's enough contrasting color. The boy racer stripes are too much.IMHO
