I like black and have owned several in the past but now moved on to a much better color Carmine Red ,.....but to me the 992 looks really boring in black, especially with the wheels above. The black plastic up front and out back do nothing to enhance it, but seem to drag it down.

I love big hips, but the 992 looks like it is starting to grow some saddle bags.

Jet Black 2015 TT:

Wide body 911's wear black very well.
Lots of work, but so was my '13 white.

I’ve owned a bunch of black cars and, because of the maintenance, would never own another one. That said, my wife owns a black BMW Z8 and a black Mercedes GLE 63S so I’m stuck with maintaining those cars. I’ll likely order my 992 C4S in GT Silver, but I’m still considering white.

Had a black 997, black Cayenne S, and a black metallic Panny TT. Actually the black metallic color *(basalt) wasn't that bad to maintain! But man that gloss black 997 had swirl marks all over the place. It was a terror.

I've moved on from black BUT the 992 does bring back those days. Doesn't look too bad!!
