I like Chalk. And I get that nothing looks terribly exciting. Shark Blue is the best of the lot, IMO. But I could live with any number of the rather generic options—even some of the silvers.

I am not in love with any of them, why I requested PTS. I would have been thrilled with Python Green, but it is NLA and was replaced with Ruby Star Neo?

At this point I'd seriously consider ordering white and wrapping it whatever color I wanted. Cheaper than PTS anyway

Not an option that I am even willing to consider.


Edit: Cheaper does not necessarily mean better, especially amongst Porsche enthusiast, at least via my own experience over the past two years.

Chalk is more interesting to me than white; but with either of those I think I’d want some sort of more interesting interior color, which I know can be $$$.

Chalk often gets called “Dirty White” on RL. BTW, Chalk is the same cost as Shark Blue, $3270.


Edit: I believe I am going to add this to my build since I was unable to acquire PTS. I do have have several Exclusive Manufaktur options selected for my build.

I would agree. If I were to go with chalk I'd probably go with espresso.

If I ever got a 911, I would definitely go with that.

Espresso or cognac would be great with chalk or even white, but not an option on a T.
