Black of course, but too bad they didn't add any interesting colors.

Metallic colors are for luxury cars.
Mexican Blue special order might look cool. The standard white, red and non-metallic black are all very good. Yellow, too, if it's not your own car (too much attention in city traffic).

The shade of yellow has changed with the 991. it's no longer the "Speedgelb / Speed Yellow" that used to be on the previous generations (964/968/993/996/997). The current one is brighter/flashier I don't like it

(some 964 were also painted "Ferrari Yellow")

I'd vote white. I think it brings out the car quite well and I guess Porsche thought the same...

All but yellow. I think yellow is too much on that car, the others are all excellent.

So far, I like the red much better than white. The sapphire blue and rhodium silver look interesting, at least from the configurator.

I'm not a Red car guy but Red does look good on the 991. White would be a good choice too but I'm thinking PTS, maybe Peridot like my Cayman R , it's an amazing colour in person. Whatya think ??

Speaking of green....here's some further alternates...

But, as a caveat, Paint to Sample (PTS) not yet available as an option..

Can it be ordered in Signal Green (or viper green / regular green or whatever the 997 GT3 RS color was)? How much extra would it be?
