    Orderd Cayenne turbo

    Just orderd today after test driving the x6m 2 days ago.

    I was close to get the x6m, but after the test drive i felt that the interieur of the x6m looked realy dated to me, specialy when compared to the m5.

    So went to the dealer this morning for the cayenne turbo. See pictures below exaclty like this.

    I have as well the wls kit, but could still swap it. Dealer thought it is not worth the extra 20 000sfr, but i just feelt like, maybe i gonna take it away. Delivery should be December (hopefully). One thing i am not happy about, aparently 21 Winter wheels are not permitted by porsche so i have to go for the 20 zoll winter wheels....

    Thanks for comments of the exterieur. Anybody think it is too mutch white colour, Other option would be swap to black.. as i said i can still make some changes..

     I haven't seen an all white like this.  It looks beautiful to me.   If you like it go for it.

    Re: Orderd Cayenne turbo

    I would not have the grill painted white, same for the wheels, too much in my opinion.  I have seen it on a white Turbo and didn't like it at all.

    Personally I like the white and black contrast, white body and black grill, wheels etc.

    I have 21" winter tires after checking with my dealer. No issue, even driving in deep snow in the mountains.

    But great choice, a white Cayenne Turbo! Smiley

    Re: Orderd Cayenne turbo

    @993Targa would you mind to post your Dealer. Porsche Bern said 21" Winter tyres are not aproved by Porsche....

    i am also very tempted by a full Black coloured one, it is hard to make final decision.


    Re: Orderd Cayenne turbo

    Sure, I will PM you. I guess it's depending on the dealership how strict they follow the Porsche guidelines.  I see a lot of Cayennes on 21" winter tires in any case. But I really don't want to start another "Porsche approved tire" discussion again.. Smiley

    About the color, I'm very happy with white, because after a year the paint still looks new, but I must say a full black looks very very nice. Make sure you get the black front and back lights, makes a huge difference!

    +1 .. too much white with no black is trying too hard


    Re: Orderd Cayenne turbo

    Actually, I think the white looks nice ( esp the white wheels for the sporty look) .. Just be careful with regards to the windows.. I think it will look better if you dont go for tinted windows, but keep them plain

    The white grill looks very sharkey. Nice! kiss


    Re: Orderd Cayenne turbo

    Ok, freakiest coincidence ever. I read this thread this morning and saw the configurator pics of the all white Cayenne Turbo. As I was doing a few errands today I saw an all white Cayenne turbo with white painted grille, and the exact same white painted wheels as well. .exactly the same configuration down to the white painted rear view mirrors. the only difference was that it had PCCB. Spooky

    IMO after seeing the exact configuration (still spooky) the white painted grille is too much. it makes it look very aftermarket.

    I'm not a fan of all white,i prefer white/black,so black exterior package,black front/rear lights,black 21" wheels,black front grille,and white body.

    and...you made the right choice,Cayenne Turbo is great!

    Re: Orderd Cayenne turbo

    Not a fan of white. It's a personal choice. Black (to me) is more elegant, but harder to keep clean.


    Re: Orderd Cayenne turbo

    thanks so far for the inputs. You all might by right, that all white is just an overkill...

    As i mentioned, all black is still very much in my brian, so i might chance , still have some decision time


    Re: Orderd Cayenne turbo

    I would go for white as most have dark colors and it suits the car very well - but don't do the front-grill in white - this is a overkill and looks aftermarket.


    Re: Orderd Cayenne turbo

    White, black wheels and dark tinted windows...


    Re: Orderd Cayenne turbo

    I'm wondering if I'm the only one who dislikes black wheels...

     no, I despise them too. You lose the wheels.

    Re: Orderd Cayenne turbo

    Dario, I would suggest you order what  you want... Switzerland needs some color on the streets. Not black all the time blush

    If you order the standard 'elegant' combo, someone 3 years hence is going to thank you, when you sell it bored to death and poorer by depreciation

    4.   although there are some exceptions from time to time. A well specced silver, grey, or white car can look superb with the right set of black wheels.

    Honest opinion: Dont like the all white (prefer silver)  miami vice look bro....would go for the black grill n rims if i were you, but i'm not: so go with your primal instinct (that is your subconscious mind's voice speaking to you...and it is never wrong. G'luck mate


    Re: Orderd Cayenne turbo

    White definetely suits the Cayenne , but dont go overboard with it,  contrast is your friend.

    White Cayenne with white wheels and white front grille looks like a "disco" mobile, kind of cheap and pimped up.

    White with black wheels and tinted windows looks classy and sporty.

    Re: Orderd Cayenne turbo

    i do agree maybe all white could be to mutch, but in this case i would prefere something like this in all black..normal.jpg

    White with black rims isnt really my taste. Does anybody know the differenz between black " Schwarz" and black metallic "Tiefschwarzmetallic", i cant really see a difference in the configuration between those 2 colors.. Must be a really small diff..


    Re: Orderd Cayenne turbo

    The difference: one is flat (deep) black the other is metallic deep black. The metallic has a very slightly blue shine when in strong sunlight as some blue particle are in the color. Its a so called "Perlcolor" paint.

    Re: Orderd Cayenne turbo

    Good call on the black,  looks great with SportDesign exterior package, all white is too much. Said that, my heart is with silver, imo looks the best with the SD exterior package, thats the color I chose for my GTS on order, classy and sporty at the same time.


    Re: Orderd Cayenne turbo

    On the sibject of color contrast and white cayennes, I saw this very well specced one a few days ago.
