What colour would you choose in a 991 GT3?

White - launch colour, looks great, likely to be common?
16 (31.4%)
Guards Red - seems to suit GT3, should a Porsche be red?
3 (5.9%)
Racing Yellow - new colour, too loud?
2 (3.9%)
Sapphire Blue Metallic - new colour, tough enough?
15 (29.4%)
Mexico Blue - out of range colour so rare (good) but 6 weeks longer to build and $10K dearer (bad)
8 (15.7%)
Agate Grey - too dull?
5 (9.8%)
Other -  name it!
0 (0%)
Who cares? They are all as boring as each other.
2 (3.9%)

Whereas racing yellow is lighter. Cayman launch colour - might be a negative.

subtle, understated, under the radar (literally....) easy resale, easy to colour match when painting.

yeah, maybe the understated thing might put some off.... so drive a McLaren or 458 instead.

I'll tell him you are twice as keen on yellow. That's not racing yellow though - more like signal yellow.

Hmmm, it looked orange on my phone. Maybe a bit more like this

mhh, has your friend driven a gt3 before? They can be hard to live with and not really a dd.

I expect the gt2 to look amazing and that'd be the car I'd go for out of the two.

Yes, the GT2 will be an absolute monster. That's why I told my friend to go easy on the options so he doesn't lose too much on the 3 when he trades up in a couple of years.

The GT3 can't be too hard to drive - it's an automatic. ;)

A lot if it comes down to geography too. I don't know Brisbane much but I'm pretty sure your main usage would be lots of long sweepers maybe?

Living in Adelaide with about 10,000kms of twisty roads within 30mins from the cbd, track focused cars suit.

GT2 is called the widow maker for a reason?

very hard sprung. Even more than a gallardo with a shorter wheelbase (I think)

Gt2 should be under 2 years release after the 3.

I think your friend has a friend that would be happy to buy the car off your friend, when the time comes, if it was white, sapphire blue, red or yellow  ;)

+1 red please.  Tell him to PM me for the "perfect spec" for when the time comes to move on...
