    987 - Carrera White vs Seal Grey- Opinions and pictures?

    I have not seen any local dealers with a white 987 around here. Anybody have pictures of a carrera white 987? Opinions about this vs a Seal Grey?

    Re: 987 - Carrera White vs Seal Grey- Opinions and pictures?

    Ask this of us UK members and most would barf at the thought of a white 987 - white really isn't a popular colour here. But, I've seen the 986 in white with full black leather interior and it looked stunning - if white wasn't such a major depreciator in the UK it's definitely a colour I would have considered.

    I know white is a hell of a lot more popular over there in the good ol' USofA - so I'd say go for it.

    Is it approaching Boxster weather in Illinois yet, I lived out there for a time last year (Schaumburg) and still haven't got over how cold it gets around now - hopefully it has warmed a little in time for my next trip in a couple of weeks.

    Re: 987 - Carrera White vs Seal Grey- Opinions and pictures?

    Rich C is right about the popularity of white over here... although surely its time for a come back.. silver is so last year darling!!!

    Anyway, I saw a picture of a white 987 on Porsche Petes website ( www.ppbb.com )

    To be honest it looked pretty sweet! Looks great with a contrasting interior, teracotta or something.
    Not the same but to give you an idea there are some pics of a white 997 over in the other board.

    Re: 987 - Carrera White vs Seal Grey- Opinions and pictures?

    White is coming back. Ive seen quite a few new Audis and Beemers in white...but it still looks kinda coke dealer-pimpish IMO

    Re: 987 - Carrera White vs Seal Grey- Opinions and pictures?

    It may be coming "back in" but in the UK.....what a stupid colour....it will be beige before you know it with our weather.

    I think it looks quite retro and cool but not practical. That's why I have gone for black....hang on a minute isn't that a sh&te colour to keep clean...?????

    Re: 987 - Carrera White vs Seal Grey- Opinions and pictures?

    Believe it or not white is one of the easiest colours to keep looking good. Yes it shows dirt but it is easy to wash, doesn't show stonechips and also hides swirl marks from polishing and everday day scratches that you pick up. I last had a white car in 1989 when it was at the peak of its popularity here in the UK and remember well how much easier it was to look after.

    I don't think I'd fancy a white Porsche though.

    here you go. 987 white.

    I can't post the pic. So here's the link: http://www.porsche-kempten.de/de/autosuche/infos.asp?ah=ZG&id=26695&typ=NW

    Re: 987 - Carrera White vs Seal Grey- Opinions and pictures?

    White is stunning with the right interior.....

    What I like...

    Sea Blue, Palm Green, Terracotta, Cocoa,....nice contrasts.

    What I don't like....

    Black, Grey, Sand,......sorta on the boring side IMO.

    Re: 987 - Carrera White vs Seal Grey- Opinions and pictures?

    This is the picture

    Re: 987 - Carrera White vs Seal Grey- Opinions and pictures?

    Looks unpainted and way too hairdresser-girlish/gayish IMO

    Re: 987 - Carrera White vs Seal Grey- Opinions and pictures?

    Mmm..... not convinced. White is a colour that loses the shape of a car as it is not reflective enough. This might be ok in parts of the US such as SoCal where you are blessed with lots of sunshine but elsewhere it'll look dull.

    Re: 987 - Carrera White vs Seal Grey- Opinions and pictures?

    that picture illustrates why you need to avoid the stark contrast of black on white (or is it the other way around?). Looks too unfinished as if it's a test mule.

    Throw in Terracotta or Cocoa interior and you might have a winner.

    Re: 987 - Carrera White vs Seal Grey- Opinions and pictures?

    White with Boxster red interior looks sweet IMO. Would be a nice combo for the Boxster Coupe

    Here's a few shots of my Seal Grey. The color is great, really shows off the lines of the car. Pictures taken right after it was washed on a cold winter day
