Looking at a second-hand 991.2 GT3 to scratch my GT itch once and for all.Smile

Against the grain, the car must be PDK. I have found a guards red car with the following spec :-

12-o'clock marking in Red
Automatically dimming mirrors with integrated rain sensorCarbon interior package (with leather interior)
Chrono Package and preparation for lap trigger
Clubsport package
Digital radio
Door sill guards in carbon, illuminated
Front axle lift system
Full bucket seats
Guards Red seat belts
LED main headlights in black including Porsche Dynamic Light System (PDLS)
Leather interior with stitching in red
Preparation outer door-sill guards, illuminated
Privacy glass (rear side windows and rear window)
Reversing camera
Wheels painted in satin black with wheel outer edge painted in Guards Red

Although a good spec, can't help but feel that there are 3 or 4 things missing from this list that are nice-to-haves, but yet would make the car more complete. Are there any options that you would personally want coupled with the above ?

In terms of colour, my head says guards red, but my heart says racing yellow. Any opinions ?

Any feedback would be much appreciated.

Nice spec, as you say most if not all of the ‘must have’ options.

I personally would want the ceramic brakes and BOSE, I’m sure others would argue against that however.

I don’t think you will be disappointed if you get one.

Again, it’s only my opinion but as good as they are I wouldn’t use it through the winter for several reasons. I can’t see the current stock levels reducing much at all over the next 6 months so would look to buy either late this year or early next and bargain hard.

You are the third person to say that to me in the space of a day.

Any preference on guards red or speed yellow ?

Red looks better IMO than yellow, probably easier to sell when you want to get rid I’d guess too Thumb

I don’t really buy bright cars, but I’d probably settle on Guards if push came to shove. Yellow with some black and a Transformers sticky might do though.

Red. Yellow attracts flies, as does ceramic sealant, something I discovered yesterday!

Guards is always a winner, yellow is tasty but may possibly narrow down the buyers field when the scratch has been itched.

Only my 2p, not fact.

It looks a pretty good spec to me. The only option that I might want is BOSE but TBF you probably wouldn’t notice the improved audio over the engine/tyre noise.

Guards Red looks great on the 991 (I am biased though Wink ) and it was the launch colour for the .2 GT3 Thumb

Its a good spec, Ceramic Brakes ? but the OEM brakes are good enough and yellow calipers wont match the car.

trick is not to pay over the odds as all the cars are still within the manufactures warranty, prices have softened so there are cars at circa £160k

Thank you all for your opinions and guidance.

Went for a yellow car in the end.

The red car had been round the Nordschleife and had the patina of a car driven at sustained high speed.

The yellow car is March 2018 with 1K miles. Not a mark on it. Similar spec to the red car but marginally better in a few areas, 7 months younger and 5K less miles.

Excellent trade-in price for my C4S which is now 52 months old/20K miles, and a good deal on the GT3.

Am absolutely delighted at the new car and the service from Belfast OPC - intend to pick up this Friday. Laughing

Picked up my racing yellow 991.2 GT3 yesterday evening. Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

Had an absolutely brilliant time at Belfast OPC and was treated fantastically by Carl, Ben and the rest of the team. Stunning hospitality and extraordinary customer service. Thumb

And just when I thought things couldn't get any better, Walter Röhrl comes along to say hello and signs the deck lid. An absolute delight and privilege to talk to Walter. worship

Car is everything I had hoped for :-
- practically new with immaculate paintwork and 1K miles
- a spec very close to the one I would have picked myself
- at idle the engine sounds like a bucket full of spanners, the roll cage creaks/groans like an Elizabethan galleon, the brakes squeal like 10 London taxis, but once on the move, she communicates through every nerve ending and screams in a way which sends shivers down your spine Surprised Surprised

I know I am really blessed to have such a car in my care and I hope that I can do it justice. My 911 learning experience has started all over again with this GT3 and I can't wait for the next lesson. Laughing Laughing Laughing

You lucky bloke!

Saw a load of GT 3's being driven round Croft the other week and they were awesome.

How fortuitous was that to have the main man there when you collected it. Get the signature PPF film covered ASAP!
