I do like a good debate and what's best then to talk about which is the best 911 colour.

I love them in black but I don't think it shows off how wide it's bum is and also a pain to keep clean.

Silver does show off the shape more in my opinion but could it be classed as a safe / boring colour.

Grey now that's a nice blend of both and what I'll try to find.

I think you are only going to get a preference on the colour people have mate.

Might be worth finding out what colour they have, why, and what would be their second choice, if there first was a no go.

So for me, it has to be black, I'm old school this is coming from the the Gillet 930 Turbo from the Ads to Condorman.

I would have grey a second choice I think it really looks good on a 997 also.

It's a 911 Thumb kind of like when you see a silver or a grey Ferrari. It should of been a Rossi red one simples.

Equating that to Porsche, with no logic whatsoever a modern 911 has to be red white or yellow. A classic 911 has to be a modern colour like silver or grey-Job done and a good job were all different.

Blue looks great. I like the idea of black but so hard to keep clean. Silver or grey are very practical.

lighter colours show the lines and gaps and vents, darker colours close it in

I was open to most colours when I was buying, but it came down to silver or grey based on condition and cost having looked at many cars. I ended up buying the boring/safe retail silver one and I'm happy I did Very Happy

That said, if there had been a 997 Turbo in the same colour of blue as Phil's then I would have struggled to not part with the cash immediately!

Mine is slate grey, after seeing it in the metal it was a deal breaker for me. The lighter grey one next to mine is the Seal grey.

Anything but white/silver/grey/black imo. A bit of colour never hurt anyone.
Sadly 90% of people go for those safe/boring options Rolling Eyes

I'm not keen on silver 911s but any other colour good with me depending on the model. Mine have all been dark blue of some description.

But love the turbo in black but then I would.

I was open minded when choosing a car so that I wasn't too limited on choice.
The 997 is such a great looking car that it suits almost every colour. Nothing wrong with a "boring choice" at all. Mexico blue, speed yellow or guards red would be my ideal colour. I absolutely love my midnight blue cabriolet but it's such a pain to keep clean!

I love my Meteor Grey Turbo with yellow PCCB calipers.

Atlas was my second choice followed by Basalt.
