The difference is in wheels. The standard Miasto production version of Carrera GT (the black model below) has wheels from prototype of Carrera GT whereas the Porsche dealers version of production Carrera GT (the silver/gray model below) has correct wheels.
That is good information for me because I did not buy the standard Maisto production Carrera GT because it has wrong wheels. However, it seems that also the dealers version of production Carrera GT has wrong door hinges as it can be recognised from not absolutely closed driver door. This problem is also with my prototype Carrera GT model by Maisto.
The best solution will be to wait for the Minichamps Carrera GT.

Dusan, what's the problem with the door hinges? I have the regular edition (black) and on my both doors are perfect. :confused
Oh, and my wheels have a blue central nut on the right wheels and red on the left wheels, with rims like the ones on your 1st pic.

Different colours of the central nuts are OK but the rims are different. In the red and black Carrara GT (production version) the rims are taken from the protope version of Maisto Carrera GT that is not correct. On the other hand, in the silver/gray dealers version, the rims are different and correct as in real production Carrera GT.

As for the hinges, it was as that time discussed in all forums. The hing on the driver door of protoype version of Maisto Carrera GT was not tight and the door could not be closed perfectly.

Somebody posted pictures to another forum of "new editions" of standard Maisto black and red production version of Carrera GT and they both had correct wheels. Therefore it seems to me that no matter if it is standard or dealer version, they both came in last with not correct wheels but now both version are re-released with correct wheels.
