Gotta agree with Mr. Stout.

Not a silver fan at all. But rhodium looks spectacular in person. Really crisp, and shows off subtle curves.

As a combo, the red brakes connect with the red tail lights -- the platinum (darker, but not black) wheels connect with the darker headlights. Saves you some dough, too.

Whatever you choose you'll be happy. Congrats!
Jamie - good advice, but specs are personal. The calipers can clash with some colors but not GT Silver (my combination).

Why don't you buy it in Naples - I saw Marco Island on your post? Serious cost savings - go onto the Porsche Naples website.

I really think the deviated stitching makes the interior. The white would be hard to keep clean but I like the red better anyway.

Yellow PCCB calipers get a flyer from me in all cases but extreme color clashes; they're just the color they are. I do wish Porsche would now lead us away from colored calipers, though...

As to clear taillights, I can't deal with 'em. Brings up the worst of the Sport Compact car craze for me, and I have respect for a well-done Civic or Imprezza. There just aren't many of them. But hf1 got it right: "Specs are personal." And how!

Jamie, you will chnage color few times before its all over and you may end up with GT silver.

I'm very happy with my light weight '13 991 2CS with X51, but now I wonder how happy I really am. I hate this website.

You're plenty happy, trust me. Yellow is the happiest color. (Your car looks awesome, btw).

Besides, happiness comes from within. You'll never find it outside.

can you get PCCB with different color caliper? otherwise i would leave them clear so you have no other exterior contrast against the tail lights...red might be a bit much. can you post up the porsche code? i would get rid of the luggage net...maybe if it was a bentley continental but its just something that will make vacuuming a pain in the ***. plus its useless.

The luggage net is removable, though, no?

Can't go wrong with Gloss black rims on any color of this car, even though the standard color is also beautiful! I actually went with the black exterior with black rims

Will be great to see another one of these around Toronto.

I am really into picking one of these up sometime in 2014.
