Looks too dark for GT silver.

Very nice. If not GT Silver Metallic it could be PTS Platinum Silver. It is not Rhodium.

Platinum Silver has a slight reddish undertone:



and another:



and another:



GT Silver is a bit darker, and none of the beige/reddish undertone:





If I were sinking that much coin into an order, I would be damn sure to see both in the flesh before ordering (any 911 should give you a clear idea of the differences). GT Silver was far more popular than Platinum, but Platinum is still a relatively new color.

The brightest silver in the lineup for Porsche is 'Ice Silver Metallic' (X7W) for the Cayman.


GT Silver would be next, similar to Arctic, a bit warmer though.

Platinum is next and is more beige, but I do not believe it's in the lineup for standard colors for the new turbo.

Meteor is darker, a gray vs a silver but still stunning, but I do not believe it's a standard for the new turbo.

If you are seeking Silver, GT Silver is likely your best bet.

Rhodium is bluish - think Polar Silver Metallic


Just my two cents.

The lighting conditions may affect the appearance of the color. I would go to the local dealer and look at the paint samples and then ask to see it on a car under natural light before I put in my order. I would want to see it under sunny conditions. It looks too dark to me to be gt or platinum silver, but the shady light conditions might be making it look darker. See it in person before you pull the trigger.

It's yet another of tens of thousands of grey porsches, so frequent one hardly notices them.

Sure this is not Agate Grey Metallic? I just test drove one. The web site color is way darker than in real life. I'm looking at the picture on my phone, and it does look about the same.
