Guards Red is one of those Porsche colors you can recite without thinking about. It was immensely popular on the G-body cars and naturally carried on to the 964, 993, 996, 997, and now the 991. I don’t think you’ll hear anyone argue it didn’t look good on those early cars, but now that the 991 is roughly twice the size as an original long hood car, you end up looking at a lot of paint. This seems to be true with the 991 with its extra wide hips and overall really big stature when it comes to what are suppose to be light, nimble sports cars. So when I saw this GT3 Touring come up for sale, I had to take a look. I think I’m still on the fence about it.

If you gave me a $175,000, which this car is priced at, and told me to pick a color on a GT3 Touring, I don’t think Guards Red would be near the top of the list for colors I’d chose. I love the GT3 Touring and I think Guards Red is a wonderful color, but I don’t think I like them together. It just feels like ‘too much’, if you know what I mean. The color basically screams “look at me” and while driving a 991 does that in the first place, I think something a little less loud would do. Maybe even if this was just the standard GT3 with the wing I’d like it better, but for now, I can’t say I’m a fan of this color on this car.
The interior accents in red are really wonderful and this car has those awesome full bucket seats, but I find myself wishing this car was maybe white with the red calipers and red seatbelts. For $175,000, this is one of the better priced GT3 Tourings out there, and I think it won’t have any trouble selling. But for me, I can’t say I love it. How about you?
