Oslo Blue 2018 Porsche 911 GT3 Is a 911 R Owner's Dream

Ladies and gentlemen Porschephiles, the 991.2 GT3 we're here to show you today has double the reasons to deserve the "special" label among its kind.

First of all, the Oslo Blue shade of the Neunelfer easily sets it apart from others of its kind, while showcasing the might of the Paint to Sample range.

Secondly, this Neunelfer is destined for an owner who decided to settle the 911 R vs. GT3 dilemma by grabbing both. You see, according to Instagram chat, the 991.2 GT3 has recently landed at Porsche of Colorado Springs.

Its owner apparently also enjoys the chars of an Etna Blue 911 R, but it seems that the said color wasn't the first choice of the man for the three-pedal special. Nevertheless, since Olso Blue wasn't an approved PTS hue for the R at the time when it was ordered, the owner went for the hue mentioned above, turning to this GT3 to fulfill his dreams.

As such, the 2018 GT3 we have here was ordered with a stick shift. Other options on the car involve the banana-colored calipers, which indicate the presence of PCCB (Porsche Carbon Ceramic Brakes) hardware, as well as the all-LED headlights, which come with silver inner graphics. The same shade was chosen for the wheels and it seems that the mix between this and the main shade of the car is brilliant.

Sure, some of you might wonder if owning both a 911 R and a Gen 2 GT3 is worth it. And the answer is a big, fat "yes", even without taking the collector car aura of the first into account.

That's because the limited edition comes with a more relaxed setup, while the GT3's track-savvy nature means the driving experience difference between the two is enough to justify the purchase, at least for those whose garage is generous enough.


A brand new PTS Oslo Blue (osloblau; non-metallic UNI; Z77) 991.2 GT3 has arrived at Porsche of Colorado Springs today, marking the first known delivered PTS example for a customer in the United States. Destined for @porsche1988959 who owns a PTS Etna Blue 911 R, this example sports the manual and looks rather brilliant with the silver wheels. Fun fact: The owner had originally wanted to order his 911 R in Oslo Blue, but as it was not yet an approved color for PTS at that time, he went with Etna Blue. With the GT3, his vision has been realized. What are your thoughts on this example? Photos courtesy of @chadx365. #PTSRS
