    Nice but..., how can I say this..., I don't get you guys with the red.

    Do you wonder what other people are thinking everytime you drive by in non-LA areas?

    They think something like this, "Like, yeah, helloooo, it's a Porsche, yes, we get it..., you have a Porsche and it's red so we can see it..., thanks for showing the rest of us poor bast*rds you've got the Porsche and we don't. Okay already..., we get it..., we're losers and you're a winner..., and there you go again, driving past us again to remind us... .

    You see, I personally like the color, but I couldn't in good conscience drive a Red porsche ans so create a wave of discontent on every non-LA, non-Southbeach street I drove on.

    .

    So people in red lada's, red Toyota's etc... are people that want to show off their poverty??
    No if you buy a red car (Ferrari, Lada, doesn't matter what) you buy it because you like the color.

    By the way I don't think a red Porsche draws more attention then a black one

    Gotta nip this one in the bud. I don't claim that people with red Porsches or toyota wanna show off their financial situation. ascribing people's motives for getting red cars is not my point.

    My Point: when you drive an expensive red car a high percentage of non-wealthy people you drive past probably see it as a kind of insult.

    I disagree, what about Ferraris then?
    Red sports cars are flashy, fact, doesn't mean they're insulting.
    I thing Red suits Italian sports car very well obviously, but Porsches rather well too.
    Aston, Merc, etc. not quite though. Although I did see numerous red SLs in Texas, interesting, but harldy appealing.

    Re: Hooooooooooooooooot

    If someone feels insulted by a red sports car bassing by his neighborhood, it's his problem, not the drive's.
    Having said that, I'm talking about the city in general here.
    Now if the dude goes doing 0 to 60s in the gettho, then yes, you could say he's looking for trouble I guess.

    I agree with your point but clearly it's a personal preference thing. Many owners want to flaunt their wealth and be exclusive and show off so a red Porsche or Ferrari suits their needs just fine. Personally I'm with you. I like a Porsche for the performance and feel of fine machinery. I like the looks too but red or speed yellow is too much "in your face" for me.

    Re: Hooooooooooooooooot

    Very nice, congrats!!!

    Re: Hooooooooooooooooot

    Nice Pictures, dream garage!

    Re: Hooooooooooooooooot

    lol

    congrats P.I.B did you just take delivery of your car? i like the colours, looks like a lot of fun!

    btw do yourself a favour and get PSE now!!

    Re: Hooooooooooooooooot

    Yes, congratulations!

    A very nice car, a striking car really. And I will temper my previous comments by noting that I owned a Guards Red Porsche for ten years myself and loved it. But you do sometimes get the negative reactions.

    Re: Hooooooooooooooooot


    GM is absolutely right, I had a Guards Red 964 for 5 years ..... and never again.

    It's too aggressive and too flashy, even if you're gently cruising people feel like you're racing....

    A red car, thanks but no thanks ... even a Ferrari.

    Re: Hooooooooooooooooot

    Cayenne Turbo and a 997. What a nice combination! What's what my parents are going to have.

    Enjoy!!!!!

    Re: Hooooooooooooooooot

    Man, you got a dream garage! plus my 2 favourite colors in a porsche, red and black.

    Everytime I think about choosing a color other than red black or basalt black I see a porsche in one of these 3 colors and go back to them again.

    Regarding the comment on color and if its showing off or not, well, is this a face of concern
    Frankly, I hate envious people, so, I like red, if people think I am showing off, fine with me, will not wake me up at night . I will still like red and black.

    Re: Hooooooooooooooooot

    I like the sport design wheels a lot. What kind of garage floor is that? Is it popular in your area? I see your neighbor has the same floor. How do you like it?

    Yes, they do need to get a life, but they won't because they think they can't. And you're the reason why they can't because, in some unknown but diabloical way, you have robbed them of the chance of getting a life, and you've taken that chance, that you've robbed them of, and gone and bought a fancy sports car with it and they're really angry about all this.
