993s = Arctic (greyish tint) and Polar (bluish tint) definitely + ......
996s = Arctic, Polar, Meridian (brownish tint) I can't recall at the moment and GT(bright silver) for the 40th anniversary cars.
997s = Arctic and GT + ......
991s = Rhodium (greyish), GT, Platinum + ......

So there is no classic Porsche silver?
 
I have 2 types of 996 silver (don't ask).

Arctic silver is very silver and looks good with black interior whereas Polar silver has blue in it and , strangely enough, looks good with a blue hood and trim.

Correct.
 
Is silver Porsche color, just like Ferrari is red?

Whan I think about Porsche,for me car must be silver,just like ferrari must be red...that is how I look at Porsche..

Can we state that Porsche color is silver in same manner like Ferrai is red or this is not usual perception of Porsche,maybe just my view how I see Porsche?

look at this beauty! there is no color that fit so good..

I think it was very common around 2000. I'm not sure if that makes it good. I always have preferred Polar over Arctic.

I'm am not a fan of 'silver' as it tends to be a safe and therefore boring colour in my view. That said Polar Silver with the blue tinge is the best of the silver strains.

If you have silver never ever option the blue interior. Unless you get a bung off Jonttt :floor:
 
Just about anything but repmobil silver, or black or grey.... :hand:
 
Looks great on the impact bumper cars because it is broken up by the black of the stone guards,bumper bellows and whale tail but other than that no.

........ Silver my least favourite colour on a Porsche .......

Black is my least color. It kill beautiful porsche lines,you dont see car..


It is sin put black color on Porsche siluete!
 
Silver is usually associated with Mercedes ....silver arrows etc...
Although I do think the colour enhances the features of any car and makes them stand out, while black or flat dark colours tend to blend in and hide the features.

Having said that I've got a black BMW and a (Meteor) Grey 997 :grin:
 
Rhodium silver is the best! Goes faster as well :thumb:
Silver as such is quite a forgiving colour in terms of looking after.
 
1950's National racing colours influenced both. Germany went from white to bare aluminium for racing.

Enzos choice was Yellow (colour for the town of Modena) until Italy national racing was red.

Looks like buyers were influenced by the race cars and national colours.

Others have the same trend eg British (Bentley ) = green and france (Bugatti) blue.

McLaren came later hence orange/papaya was all that was left in the crayon box.
