It's orange:

1920x1080

Really great spec but it's orange!

Would you guys be embarrassed having one this colour on your drive?

Not at all, I love the bright colours, there's a 987.2 near me in that turquoise blue and I love it. Not really a fan of the black/grey thing, but each to their own😎

I think the orange and black look great together. Plus it will be a lot easier to find in a car park!

I love the orange colour, only downside I can see is that you will get a lot of people parking next to you.

Looks very nice!

Seriously Rick, I’d buy one again in a blink. Overall VERY positive reactions to it. Oddly my only problem with Lava Orange is that it’s not orange enough, looks like an off-colour red to me. And recently saw a GT3 RS in the metal and thought the same, so it’s not just the photos (as Gutley will tell you, trying to photograph special colours realistically can be a major challenge). 

The future is bright :) Just don’t let Patt see it first!

 It looks great. My view is that a sports car is fun, they are not discreet, if you like how the car looks and your comfortable with it, get it. Have more fun on the ground  😁

that's probably the colour my next 718 will be:thumbsup_anim:

I had a demo lava orange 718 Cayman last year, look stunning in real life, pictures just don't show the full orangey

If that's the one at Silverstone, it's good value for money (IMHO).

If only they'd had it 2 months ago:crying_anim:

It is the one at Silverstone. I will certainly have a look tomorrow if it hasn’t sold.

There is another orange one on autotrader for £42,000. Nice spec and only 7500 miles. I thought it was odd that it has already had 3 owners though.

I saw that one thanks plus it's an S.  What put me off was that it's a private seller and the warranty runs out in a few days.

They may charge more for used cars but at least you get a good warranty from Porsche.

I would definitely buy it that colour, always reminds me of the Gt3 Rs and that’s not a bad thing! Plus you will never lose it on a car park 😉

Your wife encouraged you to come here for a SENSIBLE option…!  Now I'm outraged too!  

Anyway what better time to have a crisis than mid-life, hairdresser or not?
