Nice looking car.


FWIW, I don't understand the discussions about colored side markers. Especially I don't believe the comments that "the designers never intended them to be yellow." Surely they knew that the US is (probably) their largest single market and so planned for any US regulations. Personally I like the yellow accent as it adds a detail to my silver car. But that's a personal taste. Now back to your regularly scheduled discussion.

That is a nice looking car.

Jim, on my second Porsche. The first was a 912 in a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away.

Thanks gents.

And like you said, clear markers are a matter of individual taste... so, to each their own. No different than the color of the car or interior. For instance, my wife hates red interior, I love it. Seen people refer to silver as boring and run of the mill, I wouldn’t have any other color. The markers are a quick and cheap change unlike some of the other things we can do to these cars. So how about it, or don’t! Doesn’t really matter if YOU ARE having fun.

This afternoon I realized one reason I like the yellow (actually more like orange) side markers. They augment the gold Porsche emblem on the frunk.

As I live in Denmark I have clear side markers from the factory, but I actually get what you are saying.
Depending a bit on the color of the car I think the orange side markers can add a bit of contrast to the car.
If I were to get a Boxster 986 I would also prefer one with orange rather than clear indicators, come to think about it, I actually sometimes miss the orange indicators of cars of the '80's and '90's.
