As an anecdote, when I found 2018 GT3 pics from web, I couldn't be comparing its overall layout to my 12-14 years ago build modified 911 SC (My Strosek 911 P35 RUF BTR)... As if there were people asking back then why I made mine as I did, (for my own purpose for autobahns, Nürburgring and Spa Francorchamps etc...) I would say that this pic of Porsche ag proves that there is others who consider same way: now that they can buy that directly form the shop, not to completely build and overhaul it from ancient car... But I can see a demand factory is now fabricating an answer, and great answer it is:

The outrageously cool and gorgeous street-track product of Porsche Ag of today:
New Porsche GT3, GT4 Cars Spied – Sportscar365
P11 by Porsche AG build for 2018




My soon to be classic aged diy street-track version (modified from 1982 SC) with its 2005-2008 surprisingly different solutions, people kept asking why :

P35 by Porsche Ag & Petri original build 2005-2008


Something same there is . I think it is great that Porsche Ag has understood that such cars should be build for audience, back then 2004 they did only GT3 Cup to track and very mild GT3 to street. Therefore I did build mine back then... now I can buy such concept from works to street . Isn't it great!

I photoshopped another pic, now rather of the rear colors... I wonder if I dare to start to mess with white color to cover my tradional green... The rear could be 935 / 911 Carrera RSR Turbo 70ies style black (also rear light lenses darkened) and keeping the bumper still black (it will get dirty in races with full throttle anyway), but make rear bumper sides green... I think I still stick green with this, even if others might be more of martini colors...

I'd stay with green with black since that's your traditional color! I'm sure many others view your car as a green beast. But if you're thinking of color change then that's understandable. Thanks for keeping us up to date!

Thank you for your contribution... This is the reason I think I stick with it, as this car is known for 15 years of this color and apparently it has become a vital part of it integrity... Funny how it goes ...

I announced green (and me) to Finland National Championships Series "Rata SM" to Gran Tourismo Pro Modified class to compete in slick tyres with latest 991 GT3 Cups and R8 GT3 Audis and all kind of Super Saloon and Time Attack cars etc... Some 4 events and 8 starts... also racing in our national Porsche Sports Cup, but first time in slicks with this car...

Curious to see how we manage, two oldtimers, car and me . My wife promised to be on my side in the events, so we might also get some getaway time without kids. I am so looking forward to have some racing action .

Thx! As being a person for continuous development, this is the place to use slow motion and keep it traditional green | black with some new twists... Frontview for now with darkened front bumper area and dark lenses to lamps... . One month for first race...

It looks like you're headed towards the of making it a psychedelic livery using green, black, and white. Sounds good to me!!

Color combination works, something batman like there is (which is not that much of an improvement), also rear end I like, so I thought of challenging me with front end. As you said it had some quite psychedelic effects if making full front with black... so its not there yet.
I thought of using satin rubber dip colors for black in front bumper, as it should be protected anyway... it gets stone chip hits quite a lot in races... So I thought that rubber paint would be a sort of protection with visual effect which can be ripped of easily and repainted. It could be also something little bit more conservative like this:

Would love to check out your car in person, unfortunately Finland is a bit far from me, haha! Hope you have a lot of fun though!

Petri's Day 2018 was great, we got some 100 cars in the event. I also got my green running back, again . I did some over 100 laps with friends for track experience and got the car adjusted for the first race... I also got my completely restored Ducati 996 Troy Bayliss replica back to track first time since rebuilt.
