Only available on a GTS. Anyone ordering this will be very brave and likely to take a hit at trade-in time. For me Mamba Green works better on a Macan.

My OPC likes people to order the brighter colours, he says they get fed up with a used car lot with a sea of silvers and dark greys and dark blues. He says to me that he can’t believe people have so little imagination when ordering theses fantastic sports cars, he been an se for nearly five years now, each to his own and all that.

Also as lots of people buy on pcp with a guaranteed future value at the end of the agreement the re sale is less of a problem.

There were no sensible offers for my reasonably priced black turbo hence a Mambo Green or other exotic is likely to attract even less interest.
IMHO slight difference: "black+privacy glass" = drug dealer, "Mamba" = Extrovert, might be in a boy band. :lol:

Speaking of Mamba Green... Not sure about the green wheels though! 😳

In fairness, I saw a Mamba Taycan on the motorway a few months back and it did look good (no green wheels though).

^^^ SE was probably referring to 911s, Caymans & Boxsters, rather than Macans, Cayennes and Panameras ;)

As "911" owners I understand and don't condemn your bias, however, you are being unfair. When you look at the market as a whole the Macan and Cayenne, definitely have greater affinity with sports cars than SUVs. Just, I believe, as Porshe intended.

I completely agree that the Macan is a sporty/sporting SUV and the Panamera is a sporty/sporting saloon. I have owned both and they’re great cars & class leaders! However, they are not “sports cars”. :)

You seen me dance? Wouldn't make it into any boy band.

Also, black+privacy glass is 100% seasoned dogger.

That’s not fair. My 928 hasn’t got privacy and yet I still love dogging !
