Hi Guys

I Sold my GTS to buy the GT4, apparently i got May allocation which means i should receive the car end of July. Below is my build options

- Agate Grey
- Stitching in Platinum Grey
- Lightweight Bucket Seats
- Wing supports in Black
- Automatically dimming mirrors with integrated rain sensor
- Headlight cleaning system covers painted
- Sport Chrono Package incl. Porsche Track Precision App and preparation for laptrigger
- Fuel tank 64-litre
- Light design package
- Interior-package brushed aluminium anthracite
- Fire extinguisher
- Smoking package
- Porsche Communication Management (PCM) including navigation module with universal audio interface
- Telephone module

but quick question, do we have the choice to paint the wing support same color as the car? on the configurator and at the dealership they insist that its either black or standard (Chrome). however i saw a pic of the blue gt4 at the launch with the wing support painted in the same color. Would love to do the same, any input?

Have a photo of said car with body-colored wing supports? As far as I know, Black and Silver are the only options.

Regardless ask your dealer to pester Porsche Exclusive. Perhaps its doable, but it could've just been done for show, though it might drastically shift your build slot. I've asked for a RS-style deviating center stripe on the steering wheel for my GTS (as a one-off), and was told that it wouldn't be done "at any cost, at any time" since it wasn't an RS car. I expect a similar response from Porsche Exclusive for my GT4 on the center stripe once I get an allocation.

Don't bother with the sport chrono and track app. According to postings on rennlist is worthless.

I too thing wing mounts should be body color.

Even if it's an option (which it's not) - it'll be much much cheaper to just paint it after delivery. Those are small pieces and dis-assembly will take literally a few minutes.

Actually the price is $300-400.

You know you can redo your whole wheel in any colors, materials and designs you want, right? There are quite a few companies doing it, and many people here did. The price is $300-400. Tell the dealer to eat his hat.

Believe the unpainted uprights are raw aluminum.
I had wondered about this too, but from looking at some pictures from the recent GT4 press junket, they appear to be painted in a gray/silver color, as opposed to being raw aluminum. Here's an example:

I guess it's hard to say either way.

... ask your dealer to pester Porsche Exclusive.
Why ask your dealer? Go to the source talk to Barbara Boeckenhoff or Melissa Witek - [email protected] The old manager is gone and things should be better.

Go down to Atlanta and talk to them in person. How often are you going to order a GT car? The dealer is a middle man here. Go to the source.

Because Melissa Witek is the one who said no on my GTS back in May.

Hi <redacted>
Thank you for email. Looks good! By the way, the White exterior with the Platinum satin finish wheels is one of my favorite combinations.

About the steering wheel: We do not offer a steering wheel with the 12 o'clock marker for the Cayman lineup. This is a special touch reserved for our RS cars.

Warm Regards,
Melissa

Get it custom made and send her a big picture and thank you not for saving you money on that special touch :) Something tells me it'd be more from porsche than $300...

Dealer and I were ballparking the request being honored somewhere around $1000-1200. We were surprised when we were told it wasn't possible.

The GT4 will have a few one-off "special touches" for delivery, but I haven't asked about the 12-o-clock stripe again. It's something I'll have addressed at some point when I have time for a few other small things I want done in post.

I'd want the red stitching and belts, but that's just me. To me the silver stitching is bland and gets lost in the interior.

While the car in Geneva had the stripe, my SA confirmed with Porsche Exclusive that this is not part of the GT4 spec. They just had it as a show special. If you can send me her email, I can ask her myself as well :).
