    Re: Arctic Silver or Black?

    Rainy days???


    Oh, those 20th century atmospheric phenomena I've read about...



    Re: Arctic Silver or Black?

    Good choice. Black is so tough to keep clean, and CGT silver has a nice darker tone to it. I currently have a midnight blue TT, which I love especially in shady conditions, but I will get a lighter color next on my 997TT. On the interior, I am going to select a deep red (not flamenco or boxter) or deep green--probably will be a special order. I have graphite on my current car, and I am tired of it.

    Re: Arctic Silver or Black?

    Basalt black every time!!

    Re: Arctic Silver or Black?

    I'm still getting arctic silver but I'm spec'ing out black painted wheels this time.

    I'm trying to go for this combo:

    1. black exterior
    2. PCCB brake
    3. black interior with yellow stitching
    4. yellow seatbelts
    5. black dials
    6. black painted wheels





    Great Combo and than you can call it your "Bat-Mobil"!
    Are trying to get the wheels with a kind of "silk-effect" or like the rest of the car?

    RC-Mobile...not Bat-Mobile. I want a black (non-metallic) car with black (same as exterior colour) painted wheels. I would love to see the wheel caps painted black too with a yellow turbo lettering but I leave it to the guys at Exclusive department to do the job right.

    Re: Arctic Silver or Black?

    Wow RC... my choice! Though I have been fantasizing about a speed yellow one... I fear I am not that brave... I would choose it in atlas grey, or black... Must be very exciting to order your new car! Good luck with it!

    RC - you've gone OTT this time. That's going to be more of a Wasp-Mobile. Are you thinking of yellow 'go-faster' stripes to boot?

    Re: Arctic Silver or Black?

    I think GT silver would be a nice option too but have not seen any mules with that outfit yet

    Re: Arctic Silver or Black?

    I would prefer "midnight blue". But the question was "silver or black"... so then I would choose BLACK.

    Hey-ho RC!
    Nice idea... don't forget to get the copyrights an the "RC-Mobile" but somebody could think of a radio-controlled-car... just remember my words.

    Greetings

    Re: Arctic Silver or Black?

    Solid Black.

    Re: Arctic Silver or Black?

    RC, your combo will look like a mean mutha Only thing you'll need aswell is yellow driving shoes - maybe the Asics ones Uma Thurman sported in Kill Bill

    5. black dials

    I'm spec'g blk/blk w/blk painted wheels, PCCB, red seat belts, red stitching, alum dials, and every poss leather option (to convert the plastic std P interior into a F-like leather-lined cockpit)...identical spec to my current 996TTS Coupe.....IMO most amazing look is car w/this spec in motion, esp the appce of the big yell PCCB calipers behind swirling blk wheels w/colored P crest blur...and w/colored belts adding another interesting, but minimalist color touch easily visible from outside....

    IMO, a simply intimidating color combo like blk/blk w/minimal touches of color is easy choice ...to me, any car in silver/grey tones is too "friendly"-appearing and nondescript.....and even when dirty, a blk 997TT will have an "old-money", performance-focused, not styling-focused/"trying too hard" look to it....

    And doesn't everyone who can afford a discretionary $150K sportscar have a convenient, competent handwash place/detailing guy who'll keep your blk car looking clean and swirl-free btwn messy drives/rainy days??? What's the oppty cost of washing a car yourself? I'd rather spend that time working my day job so I can buy more toys for playtime....




    I couldn't agree more. Last week I test drove a black/black Gallardo and hated the attention it illicited on just the test drive. To me the car is about the experience of driving a car with such incredible performance. Of course, I think the cars are gorgeous but, I think considering how one color would differentiate tha car more from a prior model to a stranger is up there with BMW and Mercedes owners pulling the numbers off there cars.
