    Friday poll - best color regardless of upkeep


    Re: Friday poll - best color regardless of upkeep

    Wot no Seal Grey option?!

    Seal Grey gets my vote ;-)

    Re: Friday poll - best color regardless of upkeep

    Hahaha, fully agree But we should be fair - it's impossible to include all paint to sample colours in the poll

    Re: Friday poll - best color regardless of upkeep

    I voted for black. I love the look but hate the upkeep. I had a black Porsche many years ago and it about drove me crazy. Between the dust showing on it 5 minutes after a wash and the almost impossible task of preventing swirls I swore I would never own another black car. I am beyond hope when it comes to my car. I pick restaurants by the quality of their parking lot.

    Since some years have passed I start thinking I could own a black car again, but my wife says she would probably have to divorce me if I bought another one. So, that explains why I am driving a "safe" artic silver 997S and a silver Cayenne Turbo but voted "black".

    Where do you get these avatars Vikki?

    Re: Friday poll - best color regardless of upkeep

    Arctic Silver, baby!


    Re: Friday poll - best color regardless of upkeep

    I gotta go silver all the way. Every beautiful car should be silver. Shows shapes, lines, volumes, curves, transitions and other shading aesthetics of the body the best. Look thru "Excellence was Expected" 1500+page three volume history of Porsche, every new car underdevelopment that is in the modeling/styling shop, where "sculptural" decisions are being made, is silver. Besides, it has become the German racing color (once was white).


    Re: Friday poll - best color regardless of upkeep

    White Porsches are the fastest Porsches.

    Re: Friday poll - best color regardless of upkeep

    I say booooo to Silver or Black.

    Now how could the color 'BLACK' be winning this poll?

    I dunno what color should win but, not silver or black!!

    They're ordering their cars for the NEXT guy.

    Frankly, I see little point in custom ordering a car in either silver or black when those colors are stacked up at every dealership in the nation right now.

    P.S.--now THIS is a color!---

    I voted black , all my cars are black beside the 993S in Vesuvio. My new cars will be black as well.
    And I do NOT order them for the next guy since I do not sell my Porsches. I order black because it simply is the color (in reality it is not even a "color" , nor is white) I like best. Always have , always will.

    Re: Friday poll - best color regardless of upkeep

    Black, silver and grey cars are everywhere these days, including my garage. But I like Guards Red on the 997. It works really well and provides a lot of character to the car.

    Re: Friday poll - best color regardless of upkeep

    Guards Red is a really nice colour. It's the colour my wife chose. Hence the reason I went Basalt!


    Re: Friday poll - best color regardless of upkeep

    Went for cobalt cause there was no seal option

    Re: Friday poll - best color regardless of upkeep

    Another, more depressed way to look at it (not mine)

    Black, silver, red are obviously Porsche colors

    White cars are for women.

    Burgundy, yellow, light blue, cobalt, etc.. are owners' "favorite colors" that one would best order for their new minivan (have nothing to do with showing off the aesthetics of the car).

    Grey and Olive and slate (warmer grey) are Beeeeuuutiful colors, very elegant.

    Then again, the color of the car is like candy, walking thru the showroom with their special _specular_ lighting makes me want to buy (and eat) one of each. In the real world? I never saw a silver Porsche and thought, "Oh, too bad, what a disappointment, another silver Porsche."

    Seeing black With tinted glass, I sometimes think, That guy identifies with a handsome Darth Vader.

    Seeing Red, I think: "OK! we get it! You are driving a Porsche (or a BMW, or you really like your new Kia Rio).

    Sorry, just blabbing, the coffee hasn't kicked in yet... .

    MMD, your funny and killing me again...your imagination surely deserves an award..
    What I really want to know though is your Astrological sign?

    Your analogy on Porsche colors this Sunday morning was simply amazing!!

    P.S...The Guards Red car above Rocks Porsche Hotness too!!

    Re: Friday poll - best color regardless of upkeep

    There are only three colours for a sports car - Red, White and Black. I went with Basalt Black as it's the only metallic variety available.

    All my sports cars have been one or other of these colours. Silver is not an option - half the cars on the road are silver!

    Awwwww, you're tooooo kind. I'm just trying to avoid having the same conversation; avoid becoming unexcited about things. This shakes things up a bit, get people to consider what they think, consider what they'r assuming... . Sometimes it gets misunderstood and pi**es people off.

    Universal principle, for me at least, If I say I "hate" red corvettes, and then next week a buddy of mine shows up with his new red corvette? I'd genuinely be happy for him and that would make me start to like red corvettes.

    My astrological sign: Manic-Depressive.
