    I will take any color that is free! I currently own a white 997 but love all the colors.

    Re: What is your 997 favorite color?

    When you look at the color chart there's not really alot to choose from. I'd like to see warmer lighter colors like a champagne-colored silver; there's no chocolate browns, etc.

    Mostly the "same ol' same ol'" IMHO.

    Nice colors but (with exception of cobalt blue and slate which are really nice) I've "been there done that" with the color chart.

    Re: What is your 997 favorite color?

    honestly, there are a few good colors....i can't pick just one. My 3 would be Black, Cobalt Blue & Guards Red

    Re: What is your 997 favorite color?

    My favorites are: Arctic, Seal, Midnight,Guards, White, Black, and GT.! Heck, they all look great! I saw a White 997 last weekend for the 1st time- it looked incredible- so beautiful!

    Guess it would be difficult to choose between those three colors.

    Re: What is your 997 favorite color?

    Finally, a color poll with a good amount of options
    I'll stick with seal thank you

    Re: What is your 997 favorite color?

    I thought it was universally agreed that Slate Grey was the best colour...

    Re: What is your 997 favorite color?

    Carrara white. I own a 996 coupe in midnight blue. The biggest problem I have experienced with that color is the huge amount of heat radiated into the cabin during the summer. Hence the 997 on order is Carrara white simply for that reason.

    Re: What is your 997 favorite color?

    You don't have my color listed!

    1 gunner thats fantastic, solid black.

    Re: What is your 997 favorite color?

    slate grey

    Re: What is your 997 favorite color?

    WOW....GT silver out ahead!

    Good choice guys!

    Re: What is your 997 favorite color?

    Nothing like good old pure Black........

    Re: What is your 997 favorite color?

    Of the current 911 colour range, I'll definitely back my choice of Basalt Black.

    My first P Car was Moccha Black (kinda brownish black for those who don't remember), the next two were Guards Red, but since then it's been Black all the way. Difficult to maintain - yes, but well worth it. It's just so aggressive, yet understated and classy.

    In a better climate I may have tried GT Silver, but in the UK it looks like a dull version of Arctic which, together with Seal, are unfortunately the ubiquitous colours here, more so I think with the Boxter, but the same applies to 911's in general terms.

    I'm not averse to other colours - My first 'Sports Car' was a White Austin Healy followed by a White Lancia Fulvia. My current 'other cars' are Barbados Green (BMW 8-series) and Electric Blue (Mini Cooper S)

    It is, however, my firm opinion that only three colours truly reflect the character/image of a proper Sports Car i.e. Black, Red or White. So in choosing a colour for the 911, White is out of fashion, Red is so synonymous with F Cars and that just leaves Black, which suits the 911 admirably.

    I would love for some of you to attempt to persuade me otherwise.

    Re: What is your 997 favorite color?

    GUARDS RED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Re: What is your 997 favorite color?

    MIDNIGHT BLUE METALLIC

    Re: What is your 997 favorite color?

    Not terribly PERSUASIVE guys.

    Re: What is your 997 favorite color?

    -1-solid black
    -2-GT silver
    -3-basalt black

    Re: What is your 997 favorite color?

    Hey Dimi! Glad to see you around! What about the seal grey.. Ur Ferrari won't be happy for that.. By the way, do you have any info on the 5mm spacers? Would you advice it? a+
