saw this in Marin the other day. Also saw them testing near Mt. Tam about a month ago but couldn't take pictures as I was on a bicycle.

So the 2WD Carreras are in fact not "wide body" anymore?

991 Turbo model rear flares were always wider than the "wide body" 991 Carrera models (ie. 4wd and GT models).

All 992 Carreras are like the old 991 "wide bodies" and the 992 Turbo in the picture has yet wider flares.

Yes, I know, I was trying to be funny :/
But anyway, the Turbo will be wide-wide body, apparently.

I do put my money where my mouth is. Set aside the air cooled, lotus and Land Rover addictions. A couple years ago I bought a 4 cylinder, 5 speed manual tacoma. Utility package (rear seat delete, black plastic, no rear slider). I saw the writing on the wall that it was not long for this world, sure enough, 2018, no more 4 cylinder 5 speed and they all got the some fancy pedestrian/accident avoidance cruise control abomination. Thats crazy to me because Toyota trucks were the 4 banger manual. And the 2.7 is like the last non-direct injection NA engine sold. The drivetrain is a 25 plus year old design and is pretty much indestructible. Hopefully the 4.0 in the GT3 is 1/4 as durable. And hopefully Porsche keeps the 992 GT3 as pure as it can be.
You can put a resistor in place of the airbag and trick the system.

So is the weird CHMSL a red herring? Some pics hint at it, but why would they go to such lengths over a brake light?

Of course, colours looking different in varying conditions is natural. Same for cameras picking it up differently.

These two might be a different colour, I'm not sure:

Nice list.

Regarding red this might be Carmine & Guards Red? Or just some photo filter on the first image.






And I forgot another one that was posted here recently:
