Jet Black 2018 Porsche 911 GT3 with Satin White Gold Wheels Is a Winning Bid

With more and more 2018 Porsche 911 GT3 examples reaching their owners, many of the Porschephiles who are fortunate enough to adorn their garages with such Neunelfers bet on vivid shades, while others borrow colors from other brands, such as Lamborghini's Grigio Telesto.

Nevertheless, there will always be 991.2 GT3 owners who love to bet it all on black. Case in point with the example sitting in front of you, which is dressed in Jet Black.

The flat-six wielder comes with Satin White Gold wheels, which don't do a very good job at concealing the banana-colored calipers of the car (this means the machine packs PCCB carbon-ceramic goodies).

And speaking of the optional extras fitted to this Zuffenhausen machine, we can also see all-LED front light clusters with black inner graphics.Here's why you might be experiencing deja vu after checking out the spec we have here
The configuration of this GT3 seems pretty similar to that of the 911 GT3 Touring Package owned by Chris Harris, while the latter obviously skips the generous wing of the first - we showed you the Brit's Porscha last month.

While we're talking GT3s, some of you might want to know just how much quicker the 991.2 model is compared to the car it replaces.

Well, as we discussed earlier today, the straight-line difference between the two can be greater than expected when focusing on the 25 hp gap between the 3.8-liter motor of the retired car and the 4.0-liter boxer of the newcomer.

To be more precise, we showed you a three-way drag race involving the said GT3s, along with a Lamborghini Huracan, the LP610-4 kind.

Alas, the trio decided to skip the drag strip, duking it out on the street, so we're asking you not to take this shenanigan as an example when you find yourself behind the wheel.


Similar to @harrismonkey his spec, this brand new 991.2 GT3 is painted in black (Jet Black, to be precise), also PCCB and also gold wheels with the exception of a wing, of course. The wheels are painted in Satin White Gold, which are a great asset to a black GT3 if you ask me. This color was first introduced on the 997.2 GT3 RS as an accent color, mostly seen in combination on a Blue, Grey Black or White RS. See the third, fourth and fifth image for White Gold on the 997.2 RS. I think it looks absolutely brilliant, what are your thoughts on White Gold colored wheels? Would you like to see it on just a black GT3 or also on other colored GT3s? Personally would love to see these wheels on a Sapphire Blue Metallic one. // Photos by JanisK (Rennlist forum member) // #PTSGT4 #SatinWhiteGold #9912GT3 #JetBlackGT3 #JetBlack
