I think it could work....

Maybe add a couple more gold touches? Wing mirrors and possibly, a thin gold pinstripe or small gold lettering on the bottom on the wings)doors just behind the front wheel?

I do agree that "thinner" wheel spokes carry it off more effectively than thick ones.....

If I had a Lotus, I'd have JPS colours in a heartbeat, with a tiny bit of bright red as well.....

Before fitting My AG Ruger Mesh I wanted to have them finished in either bronze or copper but couldn't find a dark enough bronze to my liking, in the end I found black copper. Maybe it might be another option if not Lamborghini have a nice bronze colour I will see if I can find a picture.

Thanks.

Perhaps Carrera.. undecided on that aspect.

Inspiration was from this Singer.. my ultimate “daily 911”.

A friend of mine suggested maybe even keeping the wheels Silver and doing the decal in Silver... I’m sure that would also look good but it isn’t exactly being daring or different. I’m enjoying the procrastination process! Grin

Weiss looks great. Looks like colour matched decal? Very cool.

Off Topic:-
How was your car around Oulton? It’s a lovely car, arguably the best size/shape.. My brothers got a 991 RS, wonderful but quite big. I drove it down to Como in May.. got used to it but was missing trucks around the lake with on a few cm’s on occasion.. bit uncomfortable. Was craving something a bit smaller!

My 2p's worth...
I think the first photoshop you posted is the best, but I'd go very slightly darker with the 'gold' , and add a wing mirror in the same colour.
For the graphics, the porsche 'bar' doesn't quite do it for me on this occasion, how's about something like the new 911t graphic, yours could say Carrera 4S. I think the red should be used sparingly, so perhaps just the S in red.

I think what's not coming over in the photo so much is the link to the interior, which I think will work very well!

The HRE wheels posted by Jim45 are probably closest to the colour I'd go for.

Go for it!
