    Any Basalt Black photos around ??

    Spent some time trying to find some good Basalt Black 997S pictures with no luck - if anyone could link/post some that would be great. Thanks in advance!

    Re: Any Basalt Black photos around ??

    Here's a shot of mine.

    There should be plenty of others if you use the search facility.

    Re: Any Basalt Black photos around ??

    looks great - thanks for the post

    I have tried the search function - need to get better at it

    Re: Any Basalt Black photos around ??

    Here's a few shots of the Basalt black 997TT I drove in Austria.

    well unless someone has a reason not to go with the Basalt I would say the color choice has been determined

    Re: Any Basalt Black photos around ??

    The only downside to Basalt black is the maintenance involved in the upkeep. If that's not an issue then it's a good color to have.

    Re: Any Basalt Black photos around ??

    Beautiful color, especially in bright light. You've got to see the metallic flakes in the paint up close to really appreciate it.

    Re: Any Basalt Black photos around ??

    I have never thought of getting a black car, until I saw a basalt/natural brown combo in the sun. Beautiful...

    Re: Any Basalt Black photos around ??

    Its a great color but as someone already mentioned, pain in the a$$ to maintain....

    Shows scratches much easier than other colors...

    Swirl marks etc etc etc


    But when Its clean and polished it looks bad a$$ and I wouldnt change it for the world!!!!!!

    Re: Any Basalt Black photos around ??

    I think the car I shot at the weekend was basalt - could be wrong


    Re: Any Basalt Black photos around ??

    That's an odd looking car. Two spoilers? Not sure if I like that.

    I agree with Rich completely, when its clean you can't beat it, when its not, its blinkin' annoying. My 997 is my second basalt black Porsche - I told myself after the last one I would never get another one! Next time I think I will go for Meteor - just for a change!

    Here is a shot of both of my sexy babies

    Re: Any Basalt Black photos around ??

    Lookin good Porky. By any chance, do you have photos of the sea foam green 964 that's in the window? I would love to see that car.

    Re: Any Basalt Black photos around ??

    Thanks for all the photos - all look great!

    Having a few to many black cars in my life the the thing I like about the Basalt is its metallic base. I know it won't be easy but when black gets dirty and in need a care the black and its flat color drives me over the edge. I'm thinking with the Basalt I'll only be teetering on the edge

    Re: Any Basalt Black photos around ??

    I think that to "teeter" over the edge, you should go with Slate grey! Still plenty dark but not as dark as basalt/black.

    Re: Any Basalt Black photos around ??

    i had a basalt boxster with b red seats that relly did look good, particularily in the sun. to my eye it almost had a brownish cast, lots of depth....lots of work to keep looking good.

    Re: Any Basalt Black photos around ??

    My 2006 911S is Basalt Black Metallic. It is a bit more difficult to keep clean, but the lighter colors show any road tar and asphalt that get on the car, especially if you live in a hot climate. Basalt black shows less of the dirt that the regular black color does, too. I'm glad I got mine in that color.

    Hey Krown05

    I don't have any snaps but the shop that is now selling my 996 has a few at the below link!

    http://www.autodirect.jp/stocks.php

    Just scroll down and click on the car - there are a few snaps. The sea foam grean is very rare colour.

    Re: Any Basalt Black photos around ??

    I really do like the basalt black. My 997C2 is artic silver with black interior. I'll consider basalt black with the terracotta interior for my NEXT 911..
