I have seen the Sport Aero painted black but I didn't like the look of it. The texture itself looks better with some contrast, in my opinion. The same goes for these.
Photoshopped, but this is the idea I was going for:

Looks really good - the pictures make it look more white but in reality I assume it’s more of a very light grey
Yes, light grey. Front plate and calipers show variance to white.

This is at a dealer here in So Cal. (Santa Clarita Porsche) These are both pictures from the same dealer of a Turbo S they just got in different lighting conditions. One is in the sun and one the shade. In the shade looks grey in the sun looks grey/beige.

Great comparison photos
So to your natural eye, you could see the beige as much as shown in the photo?

I didn’t go and see this one but I’ve seen chalk cars before and yeah in some lighting I see some beige in there. But that is a pro not a con. Some people don’t see it but colour is subjective..

I agree. Colours can seem to change in the day/night. I am thinking about getting a chalk taycan but I am also considering getting ice-grey. I didn’t think that choosing a colour would be this tough! What colour do you prefer?

I have never seen ice-grey in real life so it is hard to say. Here is what I think
- Both are nice, I would would be okay with either honestly
- ice grey seems a little safer. Since it is new for Porsche a little more unique
- chalk will get more attention, overall it is darker than ice-grey and has the different hues
- Chalk looks better with mission e wheels either body colored/black. This adds more cost
- go and see a chalk taycan or other porsche to see if you like it

Ice Grey for me. You have to get accustomed to it as its not commonly seen on Taycan's and not available on any other Porsche either. I think it brings out the design lines nicely but is not as stark as white. Again it changes based on how the light falls on it but so far so good :)

That photo in the sun almost looks coffee beige.

Gave mine a quick wash at the weekend. Car was covered, but fairly easy to clean, and I’m not very good at cleaning cars! Best bit was the wheels, easy to get inside the inner wheel and get looking showroom fresh with no effort. Calipers look good as new also with a quick once over, showing the benefit of the lack of brake dust/ PSCBs.
