    Liquid plastic...good one.  Maybe for a bargain 10k extra.

    BLack is not good on the 918. Hides its lines. Whoopsy seriously consider another color. Some of the lighter shades.


    Re: 918 latest news Thread Closed

    On the contrary, I think the shiny black highlights the peaks on the curves of the car with the reflections. 

    That all black standard design wheel is not offered. The standard ones are with silver edging and the optional one is the whole wheel finished in matte silver.


    Re: 918 latest news Thread Closed

    As I am not a fan of black wheels (with some exceptions) , I would love to see the car in black but with silver wheels.

    I have to agree -- 918 Spyder looks great in black, but I would prefer to see one fitted with silver wheels! Smiley

    In my opinion, black cars with black wheels always seems to look a bit "under-wheeled" and, in some cases, they can give the appearance of running on a set of spare wheels...  Smiley

    In any case, the Porsche 918 Spyder will look really awesome painted black! Smiley

    For my taste, that glossy black on black 918 looks just perfect! The only thing I would change - color of the calipers.

    Re: 918 latest news Thread Closed

    So just had a chat with my dealer, looks like the way Porsche is handling the 918 business has just pissed off another loyal customer.

    I was #2 on the list, but I believe #1 is cancelling within the next few days and I am taking over his allocation, that means car building next May delivery July.

    #1 was pissed at Porsche's timing. He had his deposit down for over 2 years now yet very little information has been communicated to him during the 2 years. He was offered, and bought the Turbo S 918 edition, thinking he would at least have a few years to drive it as top dog, he didn't expect the 991 Turbo S to come out so quickly out of the gate. Say he was furious at Porsche's decision was the understatement of the year. #1 was a loyal Porsche customer, bought every significant model Porsche released yet he feel like Porsche has treated him like shit.

    At this moment, I think the decision to purchase the 918 from a financial point of view is a failure, more epic that the CGT, but I don't care, simply because I think I valued it not as an investment but as a technology showcase. Nothing else now or in the near future comes close to the technology offered in the 918. Plus, thanks to Facebook and today George Soros, I made enough last 7 days to fully paid for the car taxed in. The Soros part was especially sweet, considered he almost ruined my family's lives 16 year ago. I consider today's gain off him was his restitution to me.


    Re: 918 latest news Thread Closed

    First - Congratulations on the George Soros thing. May you do it often and for a long, long time. Second - When your short term objectives (reach +200K units) takes priority over everything, the type of behavior Porsche can sometimes display is symptomatic. It's the medium to long term consequences of this behavior that will eventually bite hard.

    I am a fan of black wheels and I think black with silver is looking way too ordinary.

    Oh good God, dark blue metallic is stunning on any Porsche... but of course I might be a little biased. Smiley

    Saphire Blue is stunning on the 918, especially with the black wheels, makes me want to second guess black now. Hmm.

    Looks a little bit cartoonish on the 918...I don't know (and yes, I hate metallic blue colors Smiley).

    I thought the $400,000 deposit was nonrefundable?

    BTW, you should thank Obama. Send him a note and congratulate him on his up coming 52nd birthday this Sunday.kisssmiley

    You mean second guess for the black rims? If so - go for it! Black will look awesome, much more special.
