Good vid, thanks for posting. Why do they always test the red ones?

Dealers always had too many of them and didn't care if they got trashed?

Good one Sean but I think I'm subscribing to the faster theory.

Interesting comment about "Porsche raising the price partially to boost the resale value of used 928s thereby keeping them from competing with new 944s".

Because the Black ones are too fast to keep the camera on.

In my job sometimes I prep the cars that Consumer Reports wants to test. They pick the model/color/options. Manufacture doesn't get to choose.
I guess red showed the best on tube TV
