Pantone 296C 2018 Porsche 911 GT3 Has Acid Green Interior Details

Poschephiles looking for a Paint to Sample shade that stands out without screaming can always turn to Pantone 296C. Sure, this hue might have the kind of name that only pleases geeks, but, for instance, the way in which this allows the aero-dictated styling cues of the 2018 Porsche 911 GT3 is uber-special.

Unlike many examples of PTS-finished Gen2 GT3 we showed you, the one we have here comes in PDK trim, with the owner having skipped the optional six-speed manual.

The list of exterior goodies includes a black finish for the all-LED front light clusters, with the same color being used for the wheels. Speaking of the rims, these house yellow calipers, which means the rear-engined machine is fitted with PCCB (Porsche Carbon Ceramic Brakes) goodies.

As for the cabin, this features extended leather and Alcantara, while Acid Green was used for contrasting stitching, steering column and floor mats included.

Of course, we can't talk about the Porsche 911 GT3 without mentioning the fact that we can now enjoy the RS version of the Zuffenhausen hero.

The 2019 Porsche 911 GT3 RS has landed as the most track-focused Neunelfer to date. As we mentioned when introducing the car, the 20 hp power bump is hardly the focus, with the road connection and the downforce taking center stage.

Unsurprisingly, the newcomer borrows plenty of goodies from the 2018 GT2 RS, from the NACA ducts on the hood and the carbon rear wing to suspension tricks.

And while Zuffenhausen has yet to deliver a Nurburgring lap time for the 991.2 GT3 RS, the Green Hell opening its gates for the 2018 season next month will facilitate this.

If you happen to be the kind who enjoys betting, now would be a good time to place your virtual money on the 2019 Porsche Neunelfer GT3 RS becoming a member of the sub-7 club.


A PTSRS Exclusive: Presenting the first known PTS Pantone 296C (non-metallic UNI; W50) 991.2 GT3, just delivered to a Mid-Atlantic U.S. dealer. This example sports the PDK, wheels in satin black, PCCB, LED headlights in black, and Adaptive 18-way seats. The interior is replete with extended leather and alcantara throughout, complemented by deviated stitching in Acid Green (including the steering column and the floor mat edging). Personally looking forward to seeing how this example looks under outdoor lighting. Many thanks to @mclarenmaniac for sharing with us the first photos of this car. What are your thoughts on this example? #PTSRS
