    In Atlanta area, 95% of Porsche's are black, grey, white or silver in that order of popularity. Porsche chooses the most hideous blues and reds making those colors only for the tasteless perhaps trying to be unique but just missing the mark entirely. And then the yellows, oranges and greens are just too loud, great for athletes, Atlanta hip hop stars and entertainers. You actually will see chrome 911s driving here occasionally (and a shiny gold Lambourghini). In the late 1970s 80s and early 90s, there was a red that people literally called Porsche red....that was a great color!

    In the 1990s I had a black Acura NSX and vowed never to have another black car.....so beautiful , if you wash it every time you drive....LOL
    Silver and grey are the most practical colors. For the workaholics that only have time to have their car detailed once a month, its perfect.
    White is beautiful on any car, but almost as bad as black in showing dirt.

    Now just imagining other options......
    Wheels.......Panamera offers wheels at the standard 19". Then for $1800, it offers 20" and about $5000 for 21" You can get 22" wheels for the Cayenne for $6600, although highly unlikely to offered at that size on Taycan although I am betting that is the size on the Mission E.

    Sideskirts (panel under the door) are offered on Panamera for about $1300. Mission E's have huge side skirts. Painted front end air intakes and door handles will give the car a cleaner slicker front end. Exterior sports packages on the Cayenne, Macan and Panamera usually add these and many other sporty features for around $5500.

    So I have added $10k to the Taycan and haven't even added interior option.....add the adaptive cruise control and lane assist (autopilot) and park assist for 5k, power seats 4k, heated and vented seats, premium sound, etc......easily another 15k.......
    So that 100k Taycan S will probably be around 125k

    I had a 2008 911 Turbo in GT Silver. It looked good, and as you say great for the office commute. I am getting a bit older now so probably reached the age where Lizard Green would look great

    Nice work!
    I think I like the Crayon with black 935 wheels...
    I've been thinking what color would be best almost every day!
    White is good but maybe a bit too normal.
    I've seen Panameras in Crayon and they look absolutely great!
    Imagining a Taycan with that wide ass and red rear light, yummie!
    Also thinking about Gun Metal with black rims...
    Very undecided yet...
    Still, I've to see it in real life, just to decide what car it is.
    Then I can connect the right color to it...

    I saw already the finished production car in the colors Karminrot and Enzianblau Metallic (I think it was these PAG colors but I'm not 100% sure).
    But I don't know if they either just tested these colors or if they are really specable options...

    I LOVE the Saphire Blue Metallic of my Cayman S..
    I would love my Taycan to be that color.
    If not, Gentian Blue is close

    I don’t think Mexico Blue is a current color maybe a paint to suit color @ $6k-$8k premium. Might take a little “fun” out of that color. Additionally when I was at the factory, the tour guide said all paint to suit colors were a very low priority so it might take over a year to get after everything else is done. Unless you have some juice with Porsche. :cool:
