    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.

    Re: OFFICIAL: 991 Turbo and Turbo S

    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.
