My last TWO cars have been WHITE and I've found them the easiest cars to keep clean, I had a Black Range Rover and that was the hardest car to keep clean!

Seems weird but it's true!

It's funny how 997 owners seem to say the 991 is better looking, etc, etc


I think the 991 is better looking than the 997 Wink

Better looking than a 993? That will be debatable!

~ Maxie


In which case it definately won't be better looking than the 964.
What about the 996? Floor

Yeh my other 911 Turbo is white and I find that easier to keep clean then my Titanium grey one. My black 928 is a nightmare to keep clean, black looks the best but only when its clean and it needs to be cleaned after every drive which is a bit of a pain.

P.S. cheshire911, the italian cars are still great but your right again, they cost thousands to maintain. My Maserati suspension fault cost $7000 to fix, the engine ecu failure cost $9000 to fix, its a money pit but I still love it

In my budget range the only Italian cars that come in range (after a stretch I might add) are Ferrari 360 Modena, Maserati Gran Sport (I am off the Quattro Porte on account of someone mentioning to me the horrendous cost of changing cam belts too frequently) and possibly a very early Lambo Gallardo. Of the three the Modena might be the one I aspire to before I die - because there seems to be more indys looking after Fezza's than there are looking after lambo's or Massers.

I love my X50 Turbo too much to part company so will stick with it for quite some time un til the Fezza starts an itch that is too strong to ignore. Just waiting for the Fezza to drop in price more.

Outside of the Italian stuff the only other car might be an Aston Martin DB9 (because of the James Bond image it conjures up - I like mine shaken not stirred and my Martini must be dry)

Swapping my nov 2012 turbo for a turbo s for jan 2014 delivery. Can't wait but won't get a white one again too difficult to keep clean particularly tar spots


Previously having had Atlas Grey to what I have currently it was Atlas that showed the dirt and grime more, but yes the tar spots do show.


I think I made it worse by having a complete clear vinyl wrap for protection and I didn't realise at the time you can't upset he normal solvent based tar spot removers. I'm surprised the grey showed the grime so much. Shame really as I think the lighter colours show the vents and enhance the curves if the car. Oh we'll I do enjoy polishing it!!

2011 Porsche 997 Turbo S

Is the thread about the car on the Geek on the Bonnet ?
Maybe the question on the 991 Turbo is secondary ?

If I find myself having to ask somebody else about whether or not I should do something, it generally means that I want to, I'm going to, and I'm just looking for some external justification for it. Just get on and do it, you know you want to.
