Greetings all. New to the site.

I collected my CT Turbo at the end of October.

Simply, an astonishing car. Before this I had a CS GT3 manual and a Turbo Cab.

This car really does replace them all. The only challenge I have is avoiding the tempation to drive it.

Nice! Just wish that Carmine Red looked this saturated in real life otherwise I could be tempted!

True! Carmine is very difficult to capture accurately. It just looks like guards red.

I've had cars in both colours - Carmine has a lot more depth to it and really changes with the light. Personal preference, clearly.

Nice, I will get mine next week. After a couple of blue cars I thought a red one would would be a nice change, especially since there already are two blue cars (wife and daughter) on the driveway.

Bold colours - you can't go wrong!

That's right - great bunch down there. Became bored of the games at the PGB OPCs.

Very straightforward to deal with, plus near to Goodwood :)

love the subtle difference of the Turbo S Aero wheels vs the Turbo Aero wheels! :like:
cheers - I think you can't go wrong with the wheel choices. They all look good. 21s not necessary for me though.

Good taste! The dealer was relieved too - most of the cars they sell new are monochrome.

According to some other sites, apparently red is a killer for re-sale. Meh.

Wonder if that might change with the GTS being saturated all over the press in Carmine? I do like it, currently on Gentian with a possibility of Mamba but another 8 weeks to also flip flop to Carmine...

GTS models always end up being launched in Carmine Red (or Guards Red on 911s) it would seem. Have a search to see how many are on the Porsche Approved site to give an idea on how popular (or not) they are - I just did and all available GTS models across the entire Porsche range are red (predominately Carmine Red - 35 cars). Launch colours are an influencer for sure - Taycan (white) no exception.

My Cayenne GTS was Silver - stood out and so much better looking than the equivalent red IMHO - who wants to follow the crowd!
