    Colour choice Carrera GT silver

    Would it be wise to pick the carrera gt silver colour on an entry level porsche?
    Does it really stand out more than the other grey tones (artcic silver for example), is the difference obvious?
    When I see a video I can't really tell whether it is carrera gt or arctic silver.
    How good is cocoa interior looking in real? I didn't get the chance to see for myself yet. None of the combinations are at my local dealer.

    Re: Colour choice Carrera GT silver

    I can't really tell the difference. I think the GT silver is a nicer paint finish, and very slightly different colour, but it's really hard to tell if a car is arctic, or GT silver, even close up and clean. It's not worth paying the extra for in my opinion. I haven't seen a cocoa interior I'm afraid.

    Re: Colour choice Carrera GT silver

    The three light greys available for Porsche are Arctic, GT and Polar I think.
    I would say that Gt is a bit darker than Arctic.
    I personally like Polar because it's got shades of light blue in it, a bit like Ferrari Alloy color but not as pronounced. And also because it's the color I have!

    Re: Colour choice Carrera GT silver

    GT silver is nice and better than Artic in my opinion, but not worth the $3K price.....which you are almost certain to never get back when its time to sell/trade. The cocoa interior is very nice and looks great with either Silver. It also looks good with other colors such as Lapis and Midnight Blue, Teal Green, White, etc.

    In the end its up to you......If your going to keep the car a long time, then get what you want. GT Silver on Cocoa is a great combo.....if you don't mind spending the $$$.

    Re: Colour choice Carrera GT silver

    My dealer told me (and showed me) that if you take GT Silver there is a light tint of Brown into it. Especially if you have Cocoa interior it looks great, otherwise it doesnt show that much....

    Re: Colour choice Carrera GT silver

    I would agree about the brown tint. It's very subtle though. You have to compare the colour samples right next to each other. If you do that, the cocoa does go better with the GT Silver. I was tempted with GT, but decided not to for the lack of resale value. I'm going Seal/Sand, but have only seen Midnight Blue/Sand, so am bit nervous about that choice! Terracotta too orange IMHO...?

    Hi all!

    Here are examples of cocoa interior (from auto-show Paris 2004):

    Very nice IMHO

    Re: Colour choice Carrera GT silver

    i find it important to add that the cocoa interiour has a noticeable "marble" effect to it. It's not just plain brown, but different shades slightly mixed. Hard to see on the pictures, but maybe important to know.
