Had it been available, I'd definitely choose GT Silver.

But light grey on Taycan is interesting too. I pushed back my lock date 1 month just to see the color.

I hope you are wrong as I chose that over the starkness of the Carrera White... :) ...Will know in a few weeks..
I'm in the same boat too, wanting something just slightly less contrasty than white but didn't really want a silver color. My lock date is coming up in a week but I don't think I'll change off my current selection of Ice Grey. Will be looking forward to your pics!

I am struggling with the colour also. Hoping pictures help me finalize in the next few weeks. . Trying to decide between chalk/crayon, ice grey or frozen blue. Wanted mamba green family strongly opposed it.

Frozen Blue is quite baby blue-ish in person, it's even more polarizing than Mamba IMHO. Only color I really recommend avoiding unless you sure-fire love it. Not saying it's bad, just a very specific color for people that love it.

Chalk is more of a sporty/race type color whereas Ice Grey will surely be more of a luxury car color, FWIW. Chalk has an almost unfinished look to it that I think most car people think looks cool and most non-car people think looks, well, unfinished.

Thanks, I like frozen blue but don't love it! Guess that is why looking at options. I told myself I wouldn't get a silver/white/black car after owning these all my life, but hard to take a chance on frozen blue or mamba green with it so hard to see these in real life and my lock date coming in a few weeks. I guess I just hope some pictures help me decide!

Here's a good video of a Panamera in Chalk. I saw one last week with all black rims and it looks very racy.

Honestly based on your comments you should get Mamba Green & tell your family to stuff it. It's absolutely stunning in person. Too loud for me (it's nearly green Lambo level of loud). I need to keep it low-key or I'll have a line outside my door of employees asking for raises.

How about Carmine Red?

The chalk car looks very good.
I want to do green but let’s see if I can go through with all the negativity I get from wife and kids! It is a little loud but I also like it. Cannot do red just isn’t me!

I was going to order that (I love blue), but chickened out and got Carrera white - still happy with it though! The new Neptune looks great in pix. Frozenblue was shocking to me in person - almost got that too!

Have you looked at the Mamba Green thread on here? Some amazing pictures.

Thanks yes I did look at them. This one is my favorite. Plan on getting below wheels but standard brakes. Anyway I figure green, blue or chalk i can be happy with any of them

Of course green is the colour to get. My guess is that all the non green taycan owners on this forum secretly have the green taycan as the wallpaper on their PCs, laptops and phones :)

My wife was and still is opposed to the green......

and now in the flesh....

So, my car in Ice Grey Metallic has just arrived and I know everyone (including myself) were keen to see the colour on an actual car. Bear in mind the car has not been cleaned or had its PDI as yet.

I like it a lot as its not as stark as white but still shows off the lines of the car nicely. It did not come across as particularly "sparkly" but I think that was more a case of where it was parked (under a canopy).

Now its going to get prep'd, PPF'd in time I hope for next week...

@LukeManning - I know your prospective customers will be keen to see it on an actual car so here you go... :)

Looks amazing , I nearly went for that but switched at the last minute to Mamba Green (which I haven't seen in real life). I think your colour looks amazing. I hope I never see one on the roads and think I should have gone for that. Haven't got mine yet, now 3 weeks late. :(
