A classic video showing a fleet of classic Porsches, most all of them tied together by something more than that famed crest: the color white. What would define your dream collection?

Personally, white (and yellow) really only 'work' on a few cars. P cars have a very German design philosophy. Very understated. For that reason, I think they look good in a color with a little flare.....or silver.

I expected to see some guy with a half dozen white Porsches in a pole barn. Was not prepared to see a white-Porsche obsession taken to this level. If you've got that much money to blow on a personal obsession, though, you might as well go all out.

Silver Blue...................what a fool.

Rubystone Red would be my preferred collection color as I kind of like the notion of a monotone collection. Though I'd probably get sick of that rather quickly.

I've wondered for a long time if there's something genetic about the way people see the color yellow.  Folks who are into yellow always seem to be *REALLY* into it.  I think it's a fine color, but can hardly ever imagine selecting something because it's yellow or if given a choice picking the yellow version of something.  But folks who get yellow seem to pick it almost religiously.  

I don't have it (whatever that 'it' is in relation to yellow), but my son (who's only 4) seems to be showing signs of it.  Quite fascinating.

I should donate my corny-cayenne, it would fit in nice there.

I do like the early 80s 930 in white. Especially if you live in Miami

Well white tends to the best color for racing Porsche's as Paul Truswell of radio lemans  has said the boring white porsche usually ends up in the lead.

Well when I was looking I didn't want a black, silver, or red car. Especially on a 911, and that was all you saw 19-20 or years ago. 
 

I've only ever had one other yellow car and it was a 81 CJ7. It was like the Jeep version of a bumble bee with yellow and black.

 

But if the truth be told, my color vision is slightly deficient. I've been tested and I'm not totally color blind, but there are certain shades I just don't see. My wife thinks that's why I like certain colors that she doesn't, because I see them differently.

Speed Yellow is my favorite Porsche color and I'll take any Porsche in that color.

Who is that shouty ginger Brit with the work boots who hosted one year of Top Gear?  Doesn't he own a bunch of white Ferraris?

 

Edit: Chris Evans.  Too much white here.

But...

There's a burgundy one

And a few ivory ones.

This is just a case of Ze Germans instructing us that these cars are all white even though they're not.
