What's Your Favorite Porsche Color ?

What's your all time favorite Porsche color ? Contrary to popular belief, mine is not Speed Yellow (although I do love it), it's Mexico Blue.

Looks more like "Baby Blue" to me Johnny thank god they call it Mexico Blue

Platinum Silver for Porsche here. Passing by unnoticed BUT with an aggressive red NAPPA LEATHER interior e.g. soft Italian lamb, NOT milky thick-cow leathers

I'm biased, but Signal Green (althought the color is hard to photograph - I had to adjust the contrast to give a truer feel of the color)

This is an oldie but a goodie...
L65K Ravenna Green used in the early '70s by Porsche & VW, seen here on a Karmann Ghia convertible.
I learned to drive with a 1974 Super Beetle of the same colour.



Kind of gets in your face, doesn't it?

+1 on Guards Red

My Guards Red 911 had a black interior, but I think I like the tan interior of my Guards Red Box even better.

I like owning (less flashy), caring for (easy to keep clean) and driving a white Porsche (again, not flashy). But, I do like looking at a lot of different colors. These are all very nice:
