White Porsches are cool

Following on from my last post, here is another thought on Porsche colours.

The hot colour for Porsches right now is white. Actually, I was always told that white wasn’t actually a colour, but you know what I mean.

White cars were super-fashionable in the 80s, thanks mainly the Golf GTI. Then, a few years later, you couldn’t sell a white car for love nor money and white Porsches were particularly unpopular, selling for less than other colours. The exceptions were RSs and the like which have always been considered to acceptable in white.

Today, though, it’s gone full circle and people will actually pay a premium for a white 997 Carrera, while older Porsches in white – such as this 964 – are hot property once again.
