Its a really tough choice between a Manual and PDK on the new GT3 as both are equally brilliant, just in different ways. If i was getting one i think i'd plump for the Manual this time.
I'm liking this new GT3 every time i read something new on it. Can't wait to get some passenger laps in one of the track days this year.
Do dealers get a certain number of each type, or just a certain numbers of cars in total and the number of PDK-S v manual, driven entirely by customer demand?

I’m really torn between PDK-S and manual (should I obtain an allocation) - enjoyed the PDK on the 991.1, but feel this is likely to be the last opportunity to get a (new) manual GT3, and my use will be predominantly on the road rather than track.

looks like dark colours work better with that front pu, sorry the tangerine car looks ghastly!

It is great IMO, very different to agate. This would be my go to PTS…looks great with black accents. Originally a Lambo colour I think.

Mine is Grigio Telesto Metallic - but currently delayed by a couple of weeks, which is expected for PTS. Should be here mid July

IMHO dark colours work best on the new 3, given the fussy details. Would usually not have Amethyst on my radar but it looks pretty good

You should have said, I would have taken you out on some PX Laps, I talk to so many people have not got a clue who is who. The cars well run in now, these new ZF dampers are something else after about 500 miles they feel like they have settled down more, lost less harsh and more compliant on B roads now. Getting a good feel for the car also. Its all about front end stability and turn in, along with how much more speed you can carry through the corners and the stability under braking, the car remains so flat and controlled.

Yes indeed - getting excited from reading the positive reviews and also speakking to APOLO who really raves about how hardcore this car feels and sounds - just as a GT3 should be biggrin

That’s lovely.

I think my wife would approve my acquisition of one of those if I wanted to swap my 2010 one and I was worthy of one in Porsche’s eyes both of which are highly significant obstacles.

Love it though... and excited for you guys getting one soon, keep the pictures coming.

It looks like the Touring will be an option pack again rather than a model in its own right as some suggested:

Porsche UK configurator said:
Additional info for "LED Main Headlights in black with Matrix Beam including Porsche Dynamic Light System Plus (PDLS Plus):

Differentiated look includes:
- daytime running light trims in Black (matt)
- decorative ring in Dark Chrome
- reflective ambient speedlines
Function and geometry as the LED main headlights with matrix beam including PDLS Plus

Note: offer for 911 GT3 with Touring Package only in conjunction with the option ‘Touring Package exterior in Black’ (order no. 04S)
