Love my black RS, and my purple one was cool too. My first choice on my RS was Lizzard and I knew I would grow tired of a bright green car, and went black. Non GT car in lizzard be prepared to take a beating on resale it’s unique to the owner .....the GT will sell because of the engine basically. But buy what you like is my position. (:

Can't say how it will feel after time if it's a DD, but I think it looks AWESOME. But it would need an aggressive exterior setup (big black wheels/trim, low slung height, etc.) to really properly work. Basically "GT esque."

I would go with the Carrera Classic wheels in the picture. I think the black/silver combo of those wheels goes really well with the green exterior.

In my humble opinion with all these bright colors, I can tell you that color choice has a gigantic impact on public perception.
In my friend's agate gray car often times people don't even notice you are there, let alone driving a Porsche. But in any bright color your presence is made aware in a 5 mile radius.

EVERYONE notices you and you are on stage every where you go. My thing was to not give a dime what anyone else thinks, but from travelling around areas of different demographics, people do treat you as if you're a conceited bastard. I think it's a subconscious thing and isn't something you can part with driving not just a Porsche but such a "look at me" color. I've learned to steel my mind from all this as a result of driving them. But at a certain point it becomes...somewhat exhausting and I'd rather preserve my mental energy (as much as that's possible driving a 911 ).
very true imo. In my Guards red 991.2 people always stared, pointed etc....new car is Night blue metallic and people hardly notice me. I really don't like that Lizzard green at all.

Similar to by build in Miami Blue. Not sure about the painted side skirts which will no doubt get peppered by stones/ debris. The paint strip just above it also looks rough IRL.

It is similair! Looks very good, the painted side skirts look so good. (Even beter in the flesh) I do not worry about it, I had it on my Panamera and no real problems.
Did you order it? You have a production date? Mine will be may 19th

B3rk - love the Lizard/Black colour scheme! Life is too short to care what other people think sometimes - and choice of cars, music, art etc should reflect you.

I am sure you must have seen this video:
