Unusual colour, and certainly growing on me.

Would maybe have had the front lower spoiler in body colour, and possibly the wheels in a darker colour, maybe even black.
 
wow paint to sample master class :thumb:

instant Porsche Porn

PTS is now an investment value option :thumb:
 
Lovely but a bit bulbous - think I'd rather buy this 8)

^Hideous AND bulbous, I think I'd go for this :

Porsche-911-964-Carrera-2-05-1024x617.jpg


And as for the 992 GT3, crass springs to mind ... Mint really doesn't suit the 992, and lets not get on to the acres of unpainted plastic and the fact it looks like it's crashed into Halfords.

And yes, I am getting older and grumpier by the day :mrgreen:

That must be one of the best things I've ever read about the 992 GT3 :grin:

To complete the picture, for me it would be none of the above. Although the 964 RS comes closest, it would have to be this, surely the prettiest of them all:

As someone who is not the biggest fan of the newer generations I thought this one was a peach the pictures don't do it justice and how the black accents worked on the car especially at the back. Didn't look chavy at all although would still have the infamous 3.6 turbo "minty" over this one think it's an age thing

Nicest 997 GT3 in UK for me. If she comes up for sale must buy. And that 993 I'd despoiler and 9m it money no object. I'll take the 964 too if you force my hand :hand:
 
Good lord no, that 997.2 needs to be painted in PTS Signal yellow like Nurburgsingh's Gen 2 RS on PH.

Few, if any modern Pork float my boat these days, but 3 or so years ago I saw one of these parked up :

https://www.meritpartners.com/featured_item/2018-porsche-gt3-touring-paint-to-sample-signal-yellow/

It looked truly stunning, and given the choice between the unpainted Halfords demo car and a Touring in Signal, the car "sans wing" would win every time. But like I said, I'm getting older and grumpier by the day :D

And that 993 is deserving of a Blut orange makeover, with some E88's with gunmetal centres, a 993 Clubsport front spoiler and nice ducktail (and an additional 60-80 NA hp) ... :thumbs:

I'll fight you for it :boxer:
 
:sad: :hand:
 
I'm guessing it being in Thailand limited it's potential market a bit.
 
I imagine the addition of the RSR kit would be a no-no, it means cutting away a large proportion of the rear quarter panel, the aerokit being non-original would be another mark against it to I'd imagine.
The vendor didn't know how many hours the engine and 'box had done, and IIRC OE Mahle 993 Cup barrels and pistons weren't exactly easy to get 5 + years ago.

As it's been "butchered" I'd get Southbound to put a complete RS interior in it, fit some more road friendly dampers and springs and get Rothsport to build a 380-400hp motor for it ... that would be cooler than any Singer, 992 or 997 GT3 :mrgreen:
