    That wing is massive

    Re: Artic vs Polar

    Shame Porsche don't offer polar silver on the current models.
    Best combo: Polar silver, black interior, red belts - simply stunning.

    On the track anything goes. Around town it looks clown-ish. Sorry, just my opinion.

    The Red interior on my 993 looks nice (to me) with the Polar Silver too. Similar to the old 550 Spyder's Silver-Blue ext with Red seats

    Re: Artic vs Polar

    Polar was the " standard" silver Porsche offered in the states in the mid 90s. Dealers complained to PCNA that customers thought it was too " bluish " and not " silvery " like other German cars , so they introduced Arctic. The first pic above compares them very well.

    Re: Artic vs Polar

    i think i read on one of the other boards (perhaps the porsche board) that polar is being re-introduced as a standard colour (along with not in place of arctic) from september/august onwards.

    Yes, it was standard on the 95 & 96 993. 97 was the first year that Artic replaced it - Polar still available from then for lots of $$$

    Re: Artic vs Polar

    that picture makes arctic look really dull

    looks like severe overcast day

    Polar has much more character than arctic.

    i saw it on a normal 996 c2 and it was marvelous

    The thing about silver

    keep in mind that silver can be a very washed out color in the middle of the sunny day; it's drama depends on the lighting. At other times when lighting is right it becomes a most fantastic color.

    Thanks Moogle! I agree with you too!
    This is a pic I posted on the 996 board, on a nice sunny day, polar blue becomes totally blue!
    On that pic, the car really looks light blue! And on normal condition, it's just light grey, awesome color!!!

    Re: Artic vs Polar

    hurts my heart to see Porsches under snow like this, but even overcast with snow Polar really glows (rhyme not intentional)
