What colour would you choose in a 991 GT3?

White - launch colour, looks great, likely to be common?
16 (31.4%)
Guards Red - seems to suit GT3, should a Porsche be red?
3 (5.9%)
Racing Yellow - new colour, too loud?
2 (3.9%)
Sapphire Blue Metallic - new colour, tough enough?
15 (29.4%)
Mexico Blue - out of range colour so rare (good) but 6 weeks longer to build and $10K dearer (bad)
8 (15.7%)
Agate Grey - too dull?
5 (9.8%)
Other -  name it!
0 (0%)
Who cares? They are all as boring as each other.

A friend of mine is interested in a new GT3 and wants some advice on colours. He's a big talker and probably won't go through with it, but no harm in putting it out there... :)

Here's Sapphire - the configurator isn't much use for colour choice.

the actual image of sapphire blue looks better than the configurator
its disappointing that the configurator is so far off the mark

Your "friend" is banned from buying one on account of the fact that "he" might be too hard to keep up with in Tassie  :p

I'll pass this on. He might be disappointed with this news. He was looking forward to wearing his stylish shoes again.

That being said, my thoughts:

White - launch colour, looks great, likely to be common? Common = popular and easy to sell. Plus it looks great
Guards Red - seems to suit GT3, should a Porsche be red? I've never seen a red Porsche that looked "right"
Racing Yellow - new colour, too loud? Biased; but I love it in yellow
Sapphire Blue Metallic - new colour, tough enough? Love blue; might suit a daily driver GT3
Mexico Blue - out of range colour so rare (good) but 6 weeks longer to build and $10K dearer (bad) Kind of suits a Porsche; but I don't like it enough to pay $10k extra
Agate Grey - too dull? BORING- might suit an accountant or a beige personality type
Other -  name it! McLaren volcano orange or Volcano yellow?
