nwc123981TCLooks good, heres mine , I may have gone a little mad but is similar to my current one https://www.porsche-code.com/PLCAFVJ1 Great spec. If you don't mind, what made you want to upgrade? Some say the 718 isn't much of a step on from the 981.ralphmusic Looks very smart. I gather the blue is a tad lighter than rendered on the configurator; I'm colour blind but even I can see why black calipers are better than red. Have you seen a Gentian Blue car? The one thing some people seem to dislike is the chrome Porsche script on the rear but on a darker colour car it adds some contrast. Do you have a build or lock configuration date? Ralph I'm torn on Gentian. Having seen it irl it does change in the light and the configurator really doesn't show it at all. May end up changing colour scheme completely, I've also been considering black with the satin aurum wheels or maybe launch spec yellow.Thanks for the tip, I think I will keep chrome lettering to match the silver wheels. I'm also undecided on buckets. Haven't driven a car with buckets (only sat in) so need to wangle one with the dealer. No solid build or lockdown dates as of yet, just been told delivery later this year.

TwinfanPDK won't arrive until late next year, so you'll be waiting a while for a suitable build slot...
ralphmusicMotorhead....Regarding the latest injection technology on the GT3 Spyder - just part of the manufacturer's continuous development process? Jeff The emissions requirements have required a generational change from the 9A1. I understand the first engine to get the new technologies was the 991.2 range, and all the major changes (different alloy for the block, injector arrangement and pressure) went first into the 3.0L engine, and were then implemented as 'convenient' in the GT engine developments. I guess the injectors were not ready in time for GT3 991.2 launch but could be introduced for the Spyder. The 991.2 and GT3 engines had adjustable exhaust cams already which were lacking in the 981 GT4 9A1 engine, but now the 718 generation gets all the goodies.

Thomas91I think there will be a 718 GT4 RS. Andreas Preuninger has mentioned (and this seems quite logical) that the 4.0L engine has "a lot more to give". Also, should customers request a PDK coupled with the extra power, this will make a great RS status car. However, this would probably come with a massive price tag and even more disappointment from people begging their OPC's when they turn round and say once more "NO CHANCE".
