    Polar Silver vs. GT Silver on 997 S

    Polar Silver does anyone have this color? I am about to finish up my order for a May build and I am torn between Polar Silver and GT silver... inputs please!

    Re: Polar Silver vs. GT Silver on 997 S

    Polar Silver is not a standard available color for 05 but it should be available as paint to sample if you care to wait an additional 3-6 mo $4315

    Artic Silver is an Optional Metallic Color for 05 $825
    GT Silver is Special Paint for $3070

    See them in person and make your own decision, silvers abound in CA

    Re: Polar Silver vs. GT Silver on 997 S

    problem with polar silver is what interior do you put in it...common is metropol blue...its similar to the diamond silver on the mbenz sl...the hell with waiting 6 months...go gt or slate

    Re: Polar Silver vs. GT Silver on 997 S

    I have polar on my 996.
    I love it because it has shades of light blue the other grey colors don't have.
    Ask CR, his Turbo is also polar and I believe he's very happy with it.
    One good think about it is that is very rare on 996/ 997 and as a result quite exclusive I guess.
    It was what Porsche calls a "Special color" on the 996 option list too. And it was quoted 4 to 6 months additionnal delivery time but I got my car in 4 months all together, demand was quite high too as it was one of the first facelift 996 models.
    As for interior color, mine is metropole blue which works great because it recalls the blue shades from the exterior color, but I guess black or grey interiors would work fine too.
    If you want pictures, I can post them later for you.
    Have a good weekend!

    Interesting. Car looks lovely Tpup. Would this be a fair summary of the shades of silver offered by Porsche:

    - Arctic Silver - standard. Availability: Immediate. Price: $825.
    - GT Silver - special paint. Availability: 4 - 6 weeks. Price: $3,070.
    - Polar Silver - paint to sample. Availability: 4 - 6 months. Price: ?

    Re: Polar Silver vs. GT Silver on 997 S

    I saw a GT Silver Carrera S the other day. I think it looked way better than Arctic Silver. I have had Arctic Silver (996C4) and Polar Silver (993 & 993C4). I agree with Fanch on the nice blue tint in the Polar Silver. That being said, the GT Silver looked extremely good. My 997S is Seal Grey, which I like after many silver cars of Porsche and other makes.

    Re: Polar Silver vs. GT Silver on 997 S

    you just made my choice much easier Tpup. I wont mind the wait of 6 months and the extra 4 grand. Thats a great car you got there man... thank you!!!

    will keep you posted on the developments on the car.

    How would you describe Arctic and GT silver?

    Arctic has a blue cast. it is a cool silver?

    Arctic silver is a bit warmer?

    I have no idea about GT silver except someone said the metallic sparkles in the paint might be bigger.

    How does GT silver compare to arctic silver?

    Re: How would you describe Arctic and GT silver?

    GT Silver - It's like a shade darker than Arctic and it does sparkle in darker silver metalic.

    Re: How would you describe Arctic and GT silver?

    I like GT Silver but I guess I'm a bit biased...



    Re: How would you describe Arctic and GT silver?

    Hello,

    I am just a French student who is fund of cars and whose favorite Auto makers is Porsche for the moment.
    I've read you guys for several months now but I never post since I don't own any Porsche and I have even never driven one.

    I just would like to know what do you think the color of the Carrera S in the following pictures is, since the Carrera looks like Artic Grey (or white ?) to me and I can't guess which grey is on the Carrera S.
    All I can say is that it is darker than the Carrera.

    Thanks guys and keep chating on this amazing forum.
