Alas, as the Instagram-based Porsche registry that brought this piece of info to our attention notes, the delivery of magnesium wheels has been delayed due to production issues, with Andreas Preuninger having reportedly confirmed this.
All this talk might get Porschephiles in the mood to see a 2018 GT2 RS that demonstrates the changes and the example we have here delivered just that. To be more precise, we're looking at a W car that comes with normal wheels, if we might call them so.
This is a Linden Green car (the hue was previously known as Chartreuse), with the dark hue of its wheels matching the carbon finish of the Weissach bits. Nevertheless, the rims doesn't come in the usual satin black. Instead, they are painted in gloss black thanks to the magic of Porsche's CCX options.
Black is also used for the inner graphics of the optional all-LED headlights, while we must also mention the yellow brake calipers, which signal the presence of PCCB (Porsche Carbon Ceramic Brakes) hardware.
P.S.: Since we mentioned the 991.2 GT3 RS, we'll remind you that Porsche is currently in the process of delivering a Nurburgring lap time for the 520 hp machine, with the rumor mill talking about a 6:56 chronograph number.
Presenting the first known PTS Linden Green (lindgrün; formerly Chartreuse; non-metallic UNI; 226) 991 GT2 RS, delivered recently in Aachen, Germany. This particular example is noteworthy because while it is clearly a Weissach Package (as evinced by the bonnet and roof, as well as the “Weissach RS” script on the headrests), it has the non-Weissach wheels (that are instead painted in gloss black via Porsche Exclusive CXX vs. the traditionally optional satin black). A quick check on the configurator shows that as of April 2018, the magnesium wheels are no longer bundled with the 2RS Weissach Package as well. Hence, the Weissach Package is now an $18,000 (US) option for the 2RS, just like for the 3RS - while the magnesium wheels are a separate $13,000 (US) option, with delayed availability due to production constraints as noted by Andreas Preuninger. Previously, the Weissach Package for the 2RS included the magnesium wheels and was a $31,000 option. Many thanks to @janerikslooten for the first photos of this car. What are your thoughts on this one? #PTSRS
