    I have the pictures in hi-res if anybody cares.
    You can see my driving report here.

    Re: 997S pictures from my test drive (black)

    Very nice pics!
    It looks really nice in black man!
    I saw at dealer an Atlas grey car, if it wouldn't have been next to a basalt black one, I would have thought it was black, look great too actually.

    Re: 997S pictures from my test drive (black)

    at least you get any color you want for your porsche -- i ordered the F430 in bianco avus... it was refused by ferrari. they seem to fear i might sell it to the US or asia... no white car for me!!

    strange.

    but only when someone is ordering a black 911 convertible

    Re: 997S pictures from my test drive (black)

    I think the best colour for the 997 is this black. All other colours tend to give too much smile to the front, which personally, I don't like.

    I can't wait to see the Turbo, hopefully, with a slighlty different front (which in my opinion will change definetly the look).

    zzboba, excellent choice. I think I will get one too but first I want to enjoy the GT3 for at least 2 years because its really a great car.
    Which colour did you go for on the F430 after they refused you the white?

    probably rosso corsa (or scuderia? hmmm...)

    but i want my bianco avus! i haven't given up yet!

    Re: 997S pictures from my test drive (black)

    nice to hear that you are a white lover.

    I have a 964 rs, 993 rs and a gt3 cs 04 in white.

    right know in discussion with the dealer for a white F430 in switzerland. here in switzerland there isn't a problem ordering a white one.

    when do you get yours?

    what other options do you take?

    Re: 997S pictures from my test drive (black)

    oh yes i love white cars as well. my current GT3 RS looks so great!!

    the problem seems to be that i'm new with ferrari. they don't trust me and white seems to be too strange for europe. if it would be my 4th or 5th ferrari, i could get it in white. probably. who knows.

    it wasn't a problem to order it in white at the dealer -- the problem occured one week later when ferrari refused the color... the dealer was quite surprised as well.

    expected delivery date: Q3/05.

    i'm not sure about options yet, it seems that a lot of kit will be lot available... probably sport seats, sports exhaust, scuderia crests, challenge rims and nav system.

    i'm going for manual btw. -- no F1.

    and no park distance control for sure!!!

    would you order your F430 in white?

    Re: 997S pictures from my test drive (black)

    zzboba,

    I like Porsches in white, specially the GT3RS, but I wouldn't order a white Ferrari. I'm not sure it is a good combo.

    I've seen pictures of the Maserati version of the Enzo (whatever it is called) in white and it doesn't look good at all.

    Re: 997S pictures from my test drive (black)

    It changes from car to car fantasma. The Maserati that you are saying has nothing to do with a 360 Modena or a F430

    On some cars white is really gorgeous!

    I know it changes from car to car. Some colours are associated with specific manufacturers, though. Most of Porsche's race cars have been white.
    I believe that the sportier Ferrari models are designed with colours like red and yellow in mind. I personally like the Ferraris in silver and blue as well.

    Re: 997S pictures from my test drive (black)

    I posted RC some pics of the Maserati gransport in Fuji white Ferrari France just received, it looks great!
    Maybe he'll post them.

    Seems that the post got lost because of the problems we had.
    I still have the pictures and I'll repost them tonight.
    Sorry, Francois...I wasn't aware of the disappearing picture post.

    Re: 997S pictures from my test drive (black)

    I'm the one who should be sorry, I still don't know how to resize pictures!!!
    Thanks!

    Yes, you are right. But consider that a different colour brakes the personality of the car as it was conceived. It could brake it positively or in a negative way. In my opinion, with my tastes, I think a 360 Modena in white its beautiful and it inspires me the word RACING. I guess it will do that for the F430 too. Of course I love the red and the yellow on it. But its again a matter of taste. You say you like the 360 in silver or blue. I find those colour on a Ferrari soffocating.

    So, again, its a matter of taste...

    i've seen a white 360 challenge stradale. awesome!

    this car totally convinced me.

    Re: 997S pictures from my test drive (black)

    Yeah I know Gary, that's how BAD I am!
    I can resize the pic, but then it also looks smaller, so it takes less memory space but it becomes tiny! Damn!!!

    Re: 997S pictures from my test drive (black)

    It just looks tiny in Photoshop, it's really OK. Resize to 800 pixels wide and it will post fine and look good.

    I think it looks tiny because you have the zoom at 33 % on photoshop! ....but I may be considering you too stupid François... don't beat me! just joking!

    Re: 997S pictures from my test drive (black)

    Never been friend with computers, never will.
    Captain, I'll remember that the day we meet!

    Right, probably so. But, since he's only resizing and not editing, it's not really important.

    Re: 997S pictures from my test drive (black)

    for the ones who can't imagin a white "sport" ferrari.

    Re: 997S pictures from my test drive (black)

    from the front

    Re: 997S pictures from my test drive (black)

    I'm still not convinced about the looks of a white 360, although the CS is a great looking car in any colour.

    But as Captain Bady put it: it's just matter of taste.

    Re: 997S pictures from my test drive (black)

    thanks, I've just ordered one Black on black, can't wait
