Olive Green Porsche 911 GT3 Touring Comes with Matching Retro Interior

With so many 992 derivatives in the pipeline that are keeping Porschephiles busy, it can be easy to forget how amazing the 991 GT3 Touring is. However, thanks to configurations such as this one, such a thing won't happen.

This 500 horsepower toy comes dressed in Olive Green, so we could say it's wearing another form of Martini livery.

The list of optional goodies found on the naturally aspirated toy involves PCCB (Porsche Carbon Ceramic Brakes), all-LED headlights with black inner graphics, along with satin aluminum wheels.

However, the cabin is what truly sets this Neunelfer apart from others of its kind. We're talking CXX Saddle Brown seats with houndstooth inserts in Agate Grey, as well as "Touring" embroidery for the headrests.

Oh, and let's not forget those color-coded air vent slats, Extended deviated stitching in platinum for the full interior, among others - this spec evokes the retro appearance of Ferry Porsche's personal 1969 911 S.

The owner of the Porscha got this for his 40th anniversary and those of you who want to know the aficioando's thoughts should check out the details below.

"This car was my 40th birthday present to myself, so it had to tick a few boxes. It needed to be eye catching but still understated, limited in number, have an amazing engine, and of course, include a manual transmission — basically, a gentleman’s supercar, because at 40 I’m obviously mature now!” we are being told.

Returning to the eighth-generation 911 deriviatives we mentioned above, the base Carrera should be the first to land, with this having already been spotted in final form. Then we have the Turbo, which has been spotted testing in Coupe and Convertible trim - expect this to land by the end of the year.

The 992 GT3 is expected to be introduced by the end of next summer, while this prototype might signal development work on the 992 GTS.

A PTSRS Story by @og_amer / Reader Deliveries: Congratulations and a belated happy birthday to my friend Markos @papayars4 on the not-so-recent delivery of his 991 GT3 Touring in PTS Olive Green (olivegrün; non-metallic UNI; 274) in Southern California. A birthday present to himself, Markos' example sports the manual (as all Tourings do), PCCB, LEDs in black, and wheels painted in the superb satin aluminum finish. The interior of this car is what really sets it apart from your average non-birthday Touring, however (in this mythical world where any Touring can be called that). Markos describes his inspiration as "going for a bit of vintage and a bit of modern mixed together.” To achieve that, he specified CXX Saddle Brown seats, houndstooth inserts in Agate Grey, and headrests embroidered with the word “touring” (thank you, @uni.kaat/@oakgruenmetallic, for opening that door) for a classic look reminiscent of Ferry Porsche’s very own 1969 911 S. Extended deviated stitching in platinum throughout the cabin, AC vent surrounds wrapped in leather, and AC vent slats in matching Olive Green complete this truly sublime package. "This car was my 40th birthday present to myself, so it had to tick a few boxes,” says Markos. "It needed to be eye catching but still understated, limited in number, have an amazing engine, and of course, include a manual transmission — basically, a gentleman’s supercar, because at 40 I’m obviously mature now!” The jury is still out on that last bit, Markos, but congratulations on a beautifully spec’ed car all the same! Special thanks to @huseyinerturk for the pictures, which he snapped on the PTS Touring drive that Will and I put together a few weeks ago, and continues to resonate in both our heads to this day. What are your thoughts on this example? #PTSRS
