    Re: OFFICIAL: 991 Turbo and Turbo S

    Haha some great comments.  I generally agree that chrome trim = elegant and black = sporty.  And the same can be said for rims, but usually 9/10 times I find the silver rims to be better (like in the white Huracan).  To each their own.  :)

    "Sporty" has never been a major criteria for me when shopping for bathroom appliances, although, I wonder if a black hair dryer would speed things up for my wife a bit. It's probably worth a try.

    Which one looks sportier? Exactly my point.

    Neither. Both cars would look sportier with polished or matte gun metal (or in Porsche speak, satin platinum) wheels.

    BTW, 

    Porsche platinum wheel color is the worst co called matte grey. It has that shitty brown tint that I simply don't likr.

    Check out Audi Titanium or Ferrari Grigio Scuro wheels which do not have any brown in it and IMHO look great with appropriate exterior color.

    Re: OFFICIAL: 991 Turbo and Turbo S

    I'm not a fan of black rims either. To me they look tacky.

    I have always preferred silver rims. I appreciate elegance in cars. Even sports cars.

    Of course, all of this is very subjective as we all have different tastes wink


    Re: OFFICIAL: 991 Turbo and Turbo S

    In the US black rims are associated with ricer modified cars, not really with sportiness...


    Re: OFFICIAL: 991 Turbo and Turbo S

    The white lambo looks best with the silver rims.  On the yellow black rims are a must, silver would not look right.  Use the white one when driving out to dinner in the tux, with the wife, and the yellow for racing around town in jeans and a t-shirt with your buddies or some bimbo (or two - if you size them correctly and throw in a free black hair dryer).

    I bet in either case the ladies would be wearing red-bottom shoes without one care about the color of the wheels.

    I had painted side skirts on my former 997.1 C4S  . It was not a problem with the gravel etc... Still looked good after 3 years.

    Well, not long ago, in the US, men were wearing their shirts tucked in (not talking about suits) and jeans were not really suitable for business meetings or even semi-official casual wear. 

    I suppose it is an age thing too but I really cannot associate the word "elegant" to a sports car. I just can't.

    Re: OFFICIAL: 991 Turbo and Turbo S

    I visited the dealer today to drop my Boxster (it needs a new air-oil separator) and there was a Turbo S cabrio going through PDI. It looked great in silver, a colour that highlighted its smooth curvy lines. It wore The CL Turbo S wheels that suited the silver body very well.

    Funny thing is that the owner also has a coupe exactly the same spec down to the last detail. He couldn't decide between Coupe and Cabrio, so he bought both within months of each other heart

    There's a reason Porsche chose GT Silver as the car to shoot all of the videos in, right... :)  I think GT Silver shows off a lot of the curves and gives the car an elegant look and the white does the same thing but with a sporty look.

    Personally I like black, white, and GT silver the best.

    Compared to white, Silver adds a warmth to the surfaces and makes the front fenders and the bulbous rear appear stretched and full of tension.
