Gulf Blue Porsche 911 R Is a Stripeless Sensation in Switzerland

This year has been uber-rich for the 2017 Porsche 911 R part of the supercar spotting community. Even now that most owners have already taken delivery of their cars, the world wide web keeps delivering fresh units to feast our eyes on.
The most recent example of this comes from the Paint To Sample Neunelfer you can see here. Dressed in a stunning shade that goes by the name of Gulf Blue, this car is the perfect example of an extra-clean 911.

And that's because the car is missing the stripes that adorn plenty of 911 Rs out there. Ever since the three-pedal animal made its debut at least year's Geneva show, the stripes that can be found on its top section have been a source of controversy, even among Porschephiles. This is why many owners have skipped these, but some of them have still chosen the side elements that mix stripes with "Porsche" branding for the doors. Well, this 2017 911 R doesn't pack any such elements, allowing the said shade of blue to shine on its own.

And if we take a look at some of the other customisable bits of the 911, such as the wheels or the headlights, we'll notice that the car comes with a classic approach, featuring silver rims and non-transparent rear light clusters.

Nevertheless, if we take a look at the nose of the thing, we'll notice that the headlights, which feature all-LED technology (this is an optional feature), come with black inner graphics.

Instagrammer, whom we need to thank for this eye candy-grade spotting, came across the Zuffenhausen hero on two separate occasions, with the man hardly believing his lens when he met the car for the second time just three days after their original encounter - the Porsche was caught on camera while doing its thing in Écublens, Switzerland.
