Have you noticed that white cars are back in fashion? And it’s usually sporty models that come in this shade.
I remember white being the in-colour back in the 1980s – I think the Golf GTi started the trend with its cool white paintwork with red accents. Indeed, I owned a white Peugeot 205 1.9 GTi in the same style, complete with bright red seat belts and carpets. It looks the business!
Then, all of a sudden, white cars went completely out of fashion, to the extent that dealers avoided them at all costs. I remember white 911s actually being marked down in value on the used market because no one wanted them.
That said, a white 964 – like the one I sold recently (see photo) can also look wonderful.
White’s a practical colour, too. It’s not metallic so it’s easy to look after and retouch, and it doesn’t show marks as badly as a black car (the worst shade to keep looking good). Yes, it sounds odd, but white doesn’t show the dirt as much as black!
