    I don't get why Porsche presents a car like the Turbo S in a new colour like ice blue metallic and at the same time they introduce the very same colour at a car like the Cayman. Smiley

    Why not make an additional 3k when they can move Arctic Silver to Special Color section Smiley.

    Probably 60 to 70 percent of buyers would do the Silver and now would cost them 3k to 4k more because you have to order it as an option, what a smart marketing.

    Arctic Silver has had it's 8-10 year run as the default silver , just as the iceberg-bluish Polar Silver was std for years before that.

    Arctic Silver has a slight golden tone in certain light ( think of  the low angle midnight-sun glow near  the Arctic Circle  )  

    Platinum Silver would be a brighter more " aluminum " silver as on MBZs. If you've ever seen the two brands' std silver side by side you'd easily see the Arctic as "duller ".

     My all -time favorite Silver :

    Sorry my mistake this is the new Cayenne colour Classic Silver.

    The Platinum silver is the same as the  Panamera colour

    Is it correct that the new platinum silver has a hint of gold in it?

    Yes it has a golden tone more so than arctic silver. I don't think that it's very suitable for a sports car, because of this. Such golden shade suits a limousine more.

    I hope they don't discontinue GT silver which is the only pure silver left in the palette.

    Really a shame that Porsche offers no real silver now, if you don't want to pay extra for a special colour. Smiley

    Agree with you reginos, a golden tone doesn't suit a car like a 911, platinum silver reminds me a bit of Grigio Ingrid from Ferrrari.
