Well firstly and more seriously the most important thing must be condition and spec that you want the colour is the heart bit . mine is Aqua Metallic, my old one was midnight and cobalt, lapis are also great colours top of the list must be Riviera but they are as rare a pulling a supermodel down my local ( just have to settle for her sister lol ) but as Monster so rightly pointed out Blue IS the new black. Under consideration when looking was also speed yellow and guards red, both proper Porsche colours . We do seem to fall into three groups those that like the loud Porsche colours and those that like the safer grey/silver tone options, and then the" It must be black" group there is no denying that Black has great depth to the colour and is an aggressive colour. I love them all even Macadamia well ok only Macadamia in bright sunshine lol . Then there are the California azzuro and the orange ones, just so many lovely and some very rare colours. Only you know what colour car you want to live with so take you time and find the best condition one you can in or as near to the colour you want. Thumb


Phil... oh dear... why? It might be fast, but it still won't fly Salut please tell me you haven't drilled that beautiful car Grin

Phil the Vertini Magic Concave look stunning. makes the car, then the colour Much love for this car. I'd go Ducktail or Aero rear spoiler. Perfection. worship worship worship


Thanks Boba, It did take a while to get used to the rear wing and if I changed it where would I put my coffee and bacon butty at the meets . a nice big carbon table on the back of your 911 what more do you need Floor Floor but your right a ducktail would look great on it. Thumb Thumb

You will be pleased to know the whole engine lid and wing are carbon and no Porsche's were maimed or killed in the making of this Wing Floor and the original lid is safely wrapped up with the other original stock parts inc. the stock exhaust. So if my attempt to be the Wright brothers fails it can all be put back to stock Grin Grin Thumb

Mine's seal grey which I love, blue would have been my preferred but none about when I was buying. There was a nice very milky coffee coloured one at the time in OPC Leeds with black Fuchs style wheels, it was an ex press car and I figured it wouldn't have been showed much love so moved on.

Inchyra - it is very 'Middle East heat reflective spec' but very nice nevertheless!

On the matter of favourite colour, a really subjective question! Grey for me though mine is silver. I love black but lack the OCD nature to keep black tip top! nooo

I bought on spec/age/miles and condition, mainly spec as I was prepared to wait to get a specific spec. Maybe it's odd but the colour was not of primary importance to me, so it was more through luck that the car which did meet what I wanted was also one of the three colours I wanted.

My car is solid black- which has a very deep gloss and shine, a bit deeper than the metallic basalt black. It's a darker black (if that makes sense), and I love it. The black suits the 911 shape and size so much.


Black
Slate/Seal grey
GT Silver

Were the colours I would have bought in, any of the above.

Basalt Black on the 997 and Midnight Blue on the 996. I reckon the darker colours accentuate the curves more than the lighter shades...

Agree, Basalt is one hell of a colour, really special, but its a hell of a colour to keep looking nice...

Just before tucking away...
