The configurator isn't up yet, but they have the paint previews working. This is Cactus Gray and Cyber Orange - and I can't decide which I like more. More muted single-stage paint is very much the fashion for trucks and SUVs right now thanks to Toyota making the TRD Tacoma, Tundra, and 4Runner in shades such as "sand" and "Concrete." I like the single stage paint look for a utility vehicle, if only for the fact it doesn't show scratches as much. But that Orange would sure photograph well for the 'Grams (and it's a fun looking color)
I don't know, I'm guessing these were named by a marketing wank in Detroit or New York. To me "Cactus Gray" looks like the color of sage or sage brush, but in the dry season some cacti like Prickly Pear can be a gray-green, as can some species of agave. The orange would be perfectly named "Solar Orange."
I finally got the Ford Bronco configurator to behave and was able to configure me a SWB Wildtrak. As usual the limitations of packages annoy the shit of me, like why can't I have the big touch screen with vinyl seats? Are Ford scared onlookers won't be able to handle the contrast of rugged seat material with technology? Also you can't have the front stinger bar thing with the protection plates. Why? Fucked if I know!
Wildtrak with full armour and the soft-top, lux package for the only decent touch screen (the small screen looks like a prop from a sci-fi show). Of course this one can only be had with an auto, Jonny Smith said that 10 speeds seemed too much choice for the gearbox at normal speeds. Maybe that can be fixed in software.
Point is I think it looks great and with the metal bumpers, underbody protection, removable doors and soft top this really is the new Defender in my opinion. The only feature they should offer is a factory raised air intake for wading or use in deserts.
Tidy looking truck, I like the splash of colour in the Nissan badge, could've done with that years ago.
The Bronco configurator was still being buggy so all prices showed up as $0, Wildtrak starts at $46,980 so definitely not a cheap alternative. I think I added another four or five grand. Seems cheap next to the Tesla Model 3 I had though.
I figured, since this thread has been bumped recently, and since I like playing in the Porsche configurator, I might as well post here.
Also, Porsche semi-recently released the PDK-only 718 Cayman GT4 RS, so I figured I'd configure an ultimate driver's Porsche. I still imagine that one to be the Cayman GT4, rather than 911 GT3, as it's smaller and more nimble. Also, I'm glad they decided to use the full potential of the 981/982 platform, even if I wish they did it before with the 987, because that one had hydraulic PAS. Not saying 981 and 982 are bad, just that in some sort of an ideal scenario, I'd prefer a more analogue steering feel. Oh well, at least this one looks considerably better.
The pictures are from my first attempt, I'm not sure if I'd go with carbon or anthracite aluminum inserts in the interior, as I did with my second attempt, but the general idea is the same, color and everything. I could've gone for Shark Blue, but I like yellow, so there's that. I would've posted the summary from my second attempt, as well as that attempt's pictures, but I accidentally closed the tab. Oh well.
Generally, the idea is to have all the driver's bits, like the Clubsport package and the track seats, but without deleting the multimedia system. Also, Chrono package because why not. Same goes for LED headlights, which, combined with some other not-exactly-necessary extras did ramp up the price up to around €100,000 in local currency. Then again, it's not like I'm ever planning to buy a new Porsche in my life, at least not with my own money.
