Orange will not, but driving it will...

It's like buying a house with a pool - you may limit your audience so may take longer to sell - hence a slightly lower price. But if YOU enjoyed it - so what. Full disclosure - just bought certified and went w GT Silver. Did not want white, black or orange. I like silver because it flys under the radar - as much as a Turbo S can

Im not looking to fly under the radar - All my buddies have supercars and this is my first (Well I have a Z06 which is amazing but not quite @ turbo level)

The Dealer called me yesterday and said my lock date was a Firm Sept 20th so i have a few weeks to change my mind....

What a hard decision!!!

Went through a similar dilemma on colour choices pre-lock date before finally settling on my personal choice. Though my spectrum was different, I have no regrets.
Once you move past this stage you will settle confidently.. albeit anxiously into the dreaded waiting period....

Stay strong and stick with the orange. You won't regret it. Also, black aero kit would look amazing with the orange.

Last plug for real orange.

Putting my (future) money where my mouth is: our next Porsche will be this color.

I hear ya brother. Anything you do to attract attention in a car will be remembered forever if it's orange.

There's only one way to make it attract more attention and that's with a vanity plate.

Don't change! 3 years now with my yellow and I'd order it again in heartbeat. If I were you however I'd get a Cab. Black top over orange would be bada$$!

I went to a dealership today and they had a Lava orange Boxster in stock. It didn't wow me as much as i thought - first time I saw one in person - I am changing the color now I wasn't as excited with it as I thought i would be

Lava orange 911 looks much better IMO. Personally, I'm not into the Boxster's looks so it never wow's me anyways in any color.

Oh my... THAT is orange!!!





I'm sad you're giving up on LO but hope you're happy with whatever you choose. Carmine red??

I agree LO looks better with black accents everywhere on a 911.
