Default Chalk/Crayon Fans

Please post your 992 Chalk/Crayon photos and configurations. Are you happy with the color? My car is now configured in Chalk, Sport-Tex with Chalk Stitching and Carrera Classic wheels.
Here are some photos I found on Instagram. I think they are in beautiful Chalk. I'm 95% sure this will be my color choice but your photos and comments will certainly help. Thanks!

Wow! Very unique, Michael. The side decal looks really nice. What is your code?

Side decal is from graphics company here.
Build code is on my computer somewhere. Its nothing special. Base, chalk, bord/black int., glass roof, exclusive rims,bose, 4 way sport plus seats.

Chalk over Bordeaux/Black can be seen on turbos and targas pretty easily. When i saw it in person my wife and i both said "Take my money!" 🤣🤣

Hahaha, I understand... When you see it in person you know right away if it speaks to you.
Thanks for your reply. Best of luck with your new 992!

Have posted this previously, but adding to this Chalk list, also with bordeaux/black. Was going back and forth on the black PORSCHE lettering. Not sure I made the right call; now in production as below.

Not4one, the back looks perfect! Doesn't need the lettering, IMHO.
Really liking the Chalk, Bordeaux and Black color scheme.

I have seen plenty of Chalk in the wild. Love it. When I when the PCA 992 giveaway I will configure mine in chalk over red leather.

Mrneddles, how does the color look in the real world. Does it look much different on a cloudy day vs a sunny day?
I've only seen the color on photos. I guess my real question is... Does the color ever look weird depending on light?
Thanks

You have convinced me that the rear needs no Model Designation at all. Much better without it.

I have seen a 718 GTS, a 991.2 Turbo, and a Sport Turismo in chalk. All instances have been at local cars and coffee so it always has been morning light in full sun or partly cloudy. I definitely would not say the color is weird. It is a very light grey. As you may know, grey can go a lot of different directions, but I would say it is a warmer grey rather than a colder, blue grey.

As an added benefit, it doesn't cost anything to delete the model designation that you already paid for!
