Gold Metallic 2018 Porsche 911 GT2 RS Is a Smooth Operator

We constantly keep an eye out for examples of the 2018 Porsche 911 GT2 RS that stand out. And the one we have here is a fresh arrival, with the hue of the machine allowing it to stand out in a special manner.

To be more precise, the dealer that took delivery of this Porscha states that the 700 horsepower toy is dressed in a hue labeled as Gold Metallic. As the social media-based Porsche registry that brought this Zuffenhausen monster to our attention explains, the dealer that recently took delivery of this machine confirmed the name of the color. Note that the rear-engined tool landed at Porsche Bellevue in Washington.

You see, when it comes to GT Division Neunelfers, Porschephiles can be split into two main camps. The first believes that the rear-engined toys should feature restrained shades, while the second talks about the eye candy benefits of screaming colors (here's a Miami Blue example or you can check out the Chromaflair Gold unit in the images above).

Well, Gold Metallic is a Paint To Sample shade that can be pretty difficult to label, at least as far as the two categories mentioned above are concerned.

Regardless of the track special's main color, we notice the visible carbon bits of the Weissach Package, which match the black finish of the uber-light magnesium wheels fitted to the car.

The spec of the 911 GT2 RS we have here also includes all-LED headlights, which come with black inner graphics.

And while we can't see the interior of the car, we are still able to notice the full bucket seats presents inside the vehicle.

While we're talking about the Porsche 911 GT2 RS, we'll remind you that the Zuffenhausen missile recently returned to the spotlights. That's because an example of the car that had received slight touches by Porsche-owned Manthey Racing managed to set a new Nurburgring street-legal sportscar record.

 

UPDATE: Confirmed by the dealer as PTS “Gold Metallic”. // Now here is a very special GT2 RS Weissach Package in an unconfirmed color, delivered recently to Porsche Bellevue in Washington. My best guesses would be either Palladium Metallic (C1Y; a Macan color) or Gold Bronze Metallic (Z52; the exclusive color for the 997 Turbo S 10 Year Anniversary Edition for China). Paging Porsche Bellevue or anyone with knowledge of this car for a confirmation of this color. Many thanks to local reader @ericreiff for the photos of this car. What are your thoughts on this example? #PTSRS
