If you don’t need perfectly clean car (I don’t) black is a great color on certain cars.

It would be my choice on 992 because the rear would look so much cleaner. JMO

His car is black and he is having a full paint protection film installed that's clear. The film then gets treated essentially like paint. But it's also self healing to some degree. So if you do get light scratching, leaving it in the sun will help to eliminate them. Definitely you can wash wish less concern since you aren't touching the paint. But should still use the proper techniques.

I've owned one black car, a launch 997, and it was one of the most beautiful cars ever for 10-15 minutes after cleaning, polishing, and waxing. Like a black hole, it pulled in every speck of dust in its vicinity, and was better at cleaning the air than HEPA filters or ionizers. Similarly, it possessed a magical ability to attract swirl marks, and magnify each one so that they could be seen from a distance. I've never owned a boat, but I've had the "best 2 days" experience that boat owners talk about with that black 997.

Detailing a black 911 is excellent therapy. It's cheaper than a shrink and actually accomplishes something.
