It’s completely ridiculous. Colors are a personal taste choice. If they were to rank colors by number of cars sold that might be just an exact figure. It’s my opinion that black and white are the most popular colors. I believe white is the number one color choice of all cars. Python Green may be someone’s favorite color but by no means should that be the official criteria for ranking a color.

Of all the colors black, white, and guards red are timeless flat colors. GT Silver is the only metallic color that is not replaced .

I knew this post would get Larry all worked up. LOL! :LOL: But it's only one person's opinion. Not a poll or even stats about the most popular sales. Just Elisabeth Blackstock's personal opinion. I will try to find the article I read about the most popular requested colors for the 992. Definetely NOT Green or Yellow! ;)
Last time we looked up an auto journalist's personal car when he criticized the Macan it turned out to be an Acura . She doesn't even list her own car or color . Just sayin....

People who live in places like California and Arizona have a lot of dust and dry heat. Black for them is a complete nightmare. Also if you Google California banning black cars you’ll see that they tried to do so 15 years ago. They are revisiting it recently. They are saying it’s environmental issues but the truth is culturally black is a total negative in those regions. In Miami where is a lot of humidity black doesn’t seem to collect that much dust. It’s hot but after a lot of black cars I’m kind of used to it.

I only had 2 black cars but they were a nightmare to keep clean…..never again!
It’s really not bad for me. I think the regular black swirls quite easily but with ceramic that has been addressed. The metallic is easier to maintain. I don’t find difficulty with either but I do find it as I’ve gotten older the hot Florida sun is felt a lot harder on my body. It was one day I was driving back from a dental surgery in the heat with my face in extreme pain as the sun pounded down and I wish I had taken one of my lighter color cars.

The « problem » with waiting is that you keep adding stuff in the configurator. For us it’s going to be fun. Especially, if it’s the Docs money! I’ll talk to his wife. LOL! 🤪
I started with a 158K build . I ended at 173K . I went as low as 147K . This is an example of a modest but fully equipped GTS The Porsche Code

Its hard top do this with a base car and the cab adds even more to it .

I also built poverty spec Gt3's and even a Turbo S (under 210.. then) . I went through the entire lineup (coupes only ) . I only recently started dabbling in Cabs with this thread and the numbers add up quickly . I happen to agree with both of your Cabs that the S was the great play .
