    Conny997:

    Your opinions and recommendations are very helpful. And yes, at least I will go with a kind of black and of course it might be an alternative to go with meteorgrey again. (Thanks for the suggestion Kreso).

    Yesterday I met my dealer and shot a pic of "darkolive metalic" on an 997 cab.
    Not that bad I think. The overall impression is like a deep and shiny black (more than basalt black).
    Only under sunny conditions one can see partly a slightly darkgreen shine. Her's a sample

    To be honest, from this pic I can't really tell the difference between this olive and plain black. Smiley

    Re: New 997 Turbo S and Turbo S Cabriolet (2010)

     Honestly, that car looks dirty to me.Walk away from that color unless you like washing it everyday.

    Find a white turbo and you will not be sorry.

    Cream white? For a retro-looking Cab at the utmost, but for a Turbo a no-go for me. Smiley

    Yes and thats basalt.
    In the direct comparison y'll see a deeper black on the cab vs. the GT2

    Re: New 997 Turbo S and Turbo S Cabriolet (2010)

    Agree with Nick about white.  Had a midnight blue 996tt and loved it in the morning and evening.  During the day it always looked hot and dirt was easy to spot and irritate.  Then bought a white Carrera S and got more nice comments in one day on the color than I did in all the years I owned the tt.  White always looks fresh and attractive (assuming you keep it clean), and is highly visible.  And if you doubt its sportiness, think of all the race cars that are white underneath all the adverts, numbers, etc.

    The only concern with white is what interior color works best.  Black is typical, but a bit unimaginative.  I would go with dark grey, cocoa or carrera red.

    sorry but i saw a creamy white in LIVE these days....

     

     

    just horrible looks like a dirty WHITE....  

     

    sorry


    Re: New 997 Turbo S and Turbo S Cabriolet (2010)

    This cream white is very nice on the "new Beetle" that girls drive but for a Porsche IMO is not suitable. Unless, it is a Carrera cabrio to be driven exclusively by a woman.

    And a s Turbo S should never be driven exclusively by a woman. Smiley

    She could drive just about ANYTHING, including men wild...


    Re: New 997 Turbo S and Turbo S Cabriolet (2010)

    The 997 is the best 911 for a few years now.  She really does look beautiful.  The turbo S looks amazing....

    Km/h... Road is wet...


    Re: New 997 Turbo S and Turbo S Cabriolet (2010)

     It seems like all videos from Europe are done in the rain or the roads are wet.

    Yep, wet sounds about right.....

    Nick, considering the weather, we had one of the worst months of May most people can think of. Cold, grey and rainy all the time, not exactly what you want when driving a sports car. Smiley
