Agate - looks mega with the Carerra Classic wheels and is more subtle and sophisticated.

"Footballer" white is a no for me - unless it's on a GT3 / RS where bold colours are more acceptable.

Agate Grey with the Classic wheels for me every time since that is what my C2S is! I have had white cars in the past and most popular joke was it looks as though they’d forgotten to paint it! Go grey!

Really difficult I had a white one & its one of my favorite Porsche colours scince my childhood Scalextric Martini turbo in the 80`s

but the gun metal metallic grey is a classic Porsche colour so I think I would opt for the Agate Grey Rolling Eyes

Depends how you use your car. Agate is lost in a car park that will be full of grey and silver cars. White will stand out better, along with all the South Korean SUV’s that seem to be sold in that colour.

Cleaning it on its own, on a sunny day, Agate will sparkle in a way that white will not. White just shows up the marks.

From the drivers seat you can’t really see the difference and you can wrap either to get back to red😊

i don't know how many cars I have had in total but the white one above is my 3rd white car. I have found it the easiest colour by far to keep clean. Oddly enough even when the weather is foul and the roads are muddy where I live it is no worse than a black, grey, silver, blue car that I have had before and it is very easy wash and dry without worrying too much about water marks (PPF and ceramic).........everyone's choice is different !
