Ladies and gentlemen Porschephiles, allow us to introduce the first web-documented example of the 2018 Porsche 911 GT2 RS that comes dressed in Signal Yellow. This is the kind of Paint To Sample shade that makes the aero-aggressive body of the 2RS stand out like a wasp.
The 700 horsepower machine that sits before us was delivered to Clermont-Ferrand, France earlier this season, so if you happen to live in the area, you'd better be prepared for the potential encounter.

And while it's not easy to look past the main hue of the rear-engined animal, we have to. As such, you should also notice the satin black wheels of the vehicle, which go really well with the exposed carbon bits that come from the Weissach Package of the toy.

Note that while the car packs the standard wheels, this will be fitted with the uber-light magnesium units. As we've explained in the past, a supplier-dictated delay has determined Porsche to ship cars with the standard rims until the magnesium ones become available once again. Of course, this also brings good news for the owners of the affected vehicles, since they get to keep both sets of shoes.

Yellow has also made its way into the cabin of this Neunelfer, even though we're talking about a different shade. To be more precise, the cabin sports deviated stitching in Racing Yellow.

The list of optional extras also features goodies like the full bucket seats and the all-LED headlights, which come with black inner graphics.

When it comes to mean machines like the 2RS, the Porsche-loving community is split among those who enjoy vivid shades like the one we have here and those who prefer tamer color. Well, regardless of the camp you belong to, you have to admit that a hue like Signal Yellow simply can't be ignored.


A PTSRS Exclusive: Presenting the first and only known PTS Signal Yellow (signalgelb; non-metallic UNI; 114) 991 GT2 RS, delivered recently to Clermont-Ferrand, France. This example sports the Weissach Package, standard wheels in satin black (with incoming magnesium wheels), LED headlights, and full bucket seats. Inside, note the extended deviated stitching throughout in Racing Yellow. Happy to finally see one of my all time favorite colors on the 2RS. Many thanks to @porsche_clermont_ferrand for the exclusive photos of this very special car. Paging @og_amer. #PTSRS
