Default Is burgundy a bad color?

I know this is mostly a matter of opinion and I'm not crazy about burgundy, but I always advice about not being picky about color and concentrating on just finding a good solid 993. Well I found a good, well maintained "arena red" (code for burgundy) 993 for a good deal. Does burgundy have a bad resale value? If I want to sale it in the future, will I have some difficulty b/c of the color? Thanks

Did you say Arena Red? Porsche only allowed the Senior Tech's to build and assemble the Arena Red ones!

Arena red is gorgeous! No way is there a bad resale value. Don't worry about that at all.

I love arena red. The last one I had was a 993 nb, no problem re-reselling. Actually better looking in person.

I was really worried if AR would work for me before I got mine. I agonized over it for weeks. Turns out....I love my Arena Red Porsche 993. A freind once advised me, never buy a car for it's resale...buy a car because you love it.

Good luck,

PS It is definitly Arena Red, not burgundy

I love the darker reds on most cars. It's taken awhile for Guards Red to grow on me but it has 'though I still prefer AR. Really like the darker blue's too. Personally don't care for white or black but I know they're very popular with many folks. Decide what you like and go from there, don't worry about what the rest of us like.

Default Arena Red Rocks

Arena Red is a spectacular color! It changes shades from sun to cloud

Arena Red was the poster child color for the first 993 Turbo's!! My first 993 was a arena red NB and now I finally have an arena red C4S. I wouldn't buy any other color. You definetly can't go wrong with this color.

Prior to joining this forum, I too did not care for "burgundy" colored cars. However, Arena Red has grown on me. It looks great on 993s as the photos show.

There is no such thing as a "bad" color for a 993

That was my number 1 color choice when I looked. I couldn't find one at the time.

That's subject to debate given the metallic gold and metallic pink 993 that I'm sure "Curve Lover" has images of stored on a hard-drive somewhere...


Arena Red, however, is a great color!

It is my favorite color, with a buckskin interior.
