Default 992 in Jet Black

Anyone found pics of finished 992 in Jet Black? I can't decide between GT Silver or Jet Black. I love how the Black hides the plastic bits. Any opinions here from past or current owners of Black 911's... Pros / Cons

Same here. Way too many black cars. My last one was traded in this year, primarily because it was Black, and I'm done with Black paint.

ANY color but black. Last black was a brand new 2015 Macan S and I told my wife if I ever consider another black car, to shoot me. It shows EVERYTHING.

Had a 991 in Jet Black and my spouse drives a Macan in the same color (both were leased, dealer inventory). It's definitely not "black" in the truest sense, it's more like the color of deep, deep graphite grey. It's got what i think is a significant amount of metallic flake, and in the direct sunlight, the color takes on a dark navy blue hue. An interesting type of black prefer the actual gloss black instead.

I REALLY want to order Black.... (just regular, not jet) but can't decide if I'm willing to take on the challenge. I'm wondering if I PPF the entire car if I can keep it up to my standard.

Black. It's not a color - it's a job.

I've had 2 black 991s and I said never again. But after seeing the black plastic abyss on the front of the 992, that's really the only color option that doesn't look horrible.

I have a black 991.2 and yes, it extremely hard to take care of. It looks great but you will always find imperfections up close. I have a whole detailing regimen that I make sure I do and it sucks in the winter when its cold. I will most likely go w chalk next time around.

Wow, not a lot of love for black 911s here.

I have always had black cars. Love 'em. They are a constant struggle to keep clean, but when they're clean, they look so good.

Having said that, my 991.2 GTS will be the first non-black car I've owned. I went with GT Silver because I like the combination of silver body with black wheels, black (or dark gray) and red exterior accents, and a black interior w/the silver seat-backs and red seat belts. Didn't go with brighter colors because I wanted to fly under the radar a bit with this car, as I will be daily driving it. If it was a GT3 or 3RS, I'd be more inclined to do a brighter, or PTS, color.

Another thing that steered me away from black, aside from liking the look of the color combo above, is that, from certain angles, the wheel gaps seem much bigger (an optical illusion) on the black 911s than on other colors. OTOH, having the sunroof in glass argued more for getting a black car.

The car doesn't arrive till late February, early March, so won't know, for sure, how I feel about my choices until then.

Most of my vehicles have been black and I love it. Current lineup is a black Macan, black Fiesta ST, black GT4, and my girlfriend has a black 718. I have tried looking into other colors but I know I will always regret not getting black if I don't.

Iíve had lots of colors, and nothing like black clean. Always have wrapped only the front of my cars, and decided to do the entire car itís a spec I love and will keep so what the hell. Iím a fan of the 991 design.
