    Flat Black Paint

    This is a link to a flat black show car at SEMA 2005.

    It might look good on a 997 or Cayman.

    Any Adobe addicts want to Photoshop a flatblack and
    waxed up 997?

    There was a picture posted a few years ago, I believe on Rennlist, of a flat black 993. It actually looked stunning. It would definately help against police laser as well.

    Re: Flat Black Paint

    stone chips would kill that car!!!! and it would be even harder to see it at night!

    Re: Flat Black Paint

    You could put a clear bra but it would need to be matted as not to have any shine .

    Actually, I think gloss black is much better than flat black for laser gun invisibility.



    See how the light shines off of every surface in the photo. With a gloss paint, there is much less scattering of the relfected waves and the subject appears less "bright".

    One can barely tell from the photo if the car is flat black or "satin chrome". Laser guns would act the same way as the camera did.

    Thanks for the clarification Mike.

    Re: Flat Black Paint

    Re: Flat Black Paint

    Here is that flat black 993 someone mentioned.

    Re: Flat Black Paint

    And one more

    Re: Flat Black Paint

    Yes, that's the one. Thanks, 1RAGE!

    Re: Flat Black Paint

    Just one question: why?

    Yuck.

    Re: Flat Black Paint

    Looks like the car is anodized and prepped for a paint-job.
    Looks unfinished (literally) if you ask me.
    Leave it for old american hotrods---an old Dodge Charger would look cool in flat black. But a Porsche? Nah.
