Need opinion: Macan S colors

Hey all,

My pops is deciding between a Macan S in Miami Blue with 21' Sport Classic black wheels vs. Black with 21' RS Spyder wheels. Both cars have identical black interiors.

Miami Blue is nice and the appeal is that it's unique, but it can come with a lot of attention too. This is a car he will drive to work, around town, etc. for 3 years. Does this color seem overbearing for a little SUV?

Black is beautiful and classic, you can't go wrong with it. But everybody has a black Macan. The black car also has Sport Chrono pkg. Hit that button and it's 20 seconds of pure bliss.

Need 3rd party opinions. Need to make a final verdict ASAP; please help, first world problem I know.

Miami Blue, between those two options. Lots of reasons - easier resale (more desirable color) - easier to clean - cooler in the summer - just plain looks better - etc etc.

Unfortunately it's hard to find a Macan in inventory without black or beige interior.

When I test drove the Miami Blue, people literally stare at you. Makes you feel special but could get annoying fast.

Custom colors are great but think ahead a few months from now. Will you be happy with your color choice once the novelty wears off. If yes, go for it!

If he likes attention, Miami Blue. If he wants to fly under the radar a bit more, black.

Miami Blue. Only way i would get black is if i wanted to fly under the radar and blend in with the millions of cars out there that are black.

I saw that car in person, if it’s the one at Porsche West Broward. Absolutely gorgeous car. I think we should have more colorful cars on the road and MB is probably the best current color Porsche offers.

Any colors but Black, White, or any shades of gray or silver. Basically, any colors that aren't just made up of black and white - we don't live in a black and white world...although, it's becoming one since that's all I see on the roads these days Walking through our parking lot, I thought I was color blind

Miami Blue please, gorgeous color and being a light blue it will look clean no matter how dirty it gets.

Black is horrible, impossible to keep clean/swirl free and quite frankly boring as hell.

Ditch the side blades in flat black, pay the extra for body paint color especially if doing any color other than black paint.

Full disclosure, I absolutely love the color for its "edginess," so not knowing his personality characteristics and what he does for work I am going with Black. Not many people can pull off a color like MB on a Macan. Does that make sense?

I'll preface this with saying that I dislike SUV's but I saw a Miami Blue Macan this weekend and it just looked off. 911's and 718's look great in MB, but the big SUV's look out of place in such a loud color.

You can't go wrong with black. My car is black, my mom's if black, my brother's is black, and so is my dad's.

He feels it's time for a change.

I saw one of these the other day. Also saw one with the darker green (don't know the color) they was amazing. Perfect color to be different but still classy.
