Albert Blue Porsche 911 GT3 Touring Brings Back the 1970s

Despite having shown you tons of incarnations of the 2018 Porsche 911 GT3 Touring Package, there's always room for something fresh. So, without further ado, we bring you the first web-documented Albert Blue 911 GT3 TP.

This is a historic Zuffenhausen color, having shown up in the 911 range for the 1970 model year and being offered through MY72.

The shade has now been included in the Paint To Sample palette and since we're talking about a retro shade, this seems to perfectly complement the simple lines of the Touring.

The rear-engined toy recently landed in Houston, Texas, so it will get to enjoy plenty of sun - pixel tip to the PTSRS social media-based Porsche registry for the photos of the 500 horsepower splendor.

Now, while the images in the gallery above show you the said shade in various lighting conditions, you might want to know more about the real-world feel of the color. Well, the owner did drop a thought on this online, explaining that Albert Blue is "very saturated with a hint of purple under the right lighting,”

Look past the main shade of the Neunelfer and you'll notice satin aluminum wheels, which simply can't conceal the yellow calipers. The latter signal the presence of PCCB (Porsche Carbon Ceramic Brakes).

Oh, and silver is also used for the inner graphics of the Xenon headlights.

As for the cabin of the Porscha, this packs full bucket seats and, since we're talking about a Touring, accommodates a manual gear shifter, which packs a 911 R carbon knob (this isn't the only carbon element found in the cabin).

Yellow has also found its way inside the car, with this being used for the deviated stitching, since the owner wanted the caliper appearance to be matched inside the car. And while this might be a polarising option, it's certainly one that can't be ignored.
