Default If PTS was free, what color would your Macan be?

If your Macan could be any color at no upcharge, whether it be a named Porsche color or a color from a different manufacturer or whatever, what color would you choose?

I hate to admit it, but there are two BMW colors I would personally choose. My first choice would be BMW's Tanzanite Blue, and my second choice would be BMW Carbon Black.

Interested to hear what other peoples choices would be.

No doubt there are some colors I’m not thinking of at the moment, but the OP mentioned BMW carbon black. One of my friends has that on his X5M and it looks awesome when it’s clean.

I expect it would be just as awesome on the Macan.

I almost went with British Racing Green when I built my GTS, but I have always wanted a 911 in this color so I didn’t and I went with Carmine Red instead which was a wonderful second choice.

With all of the wonderfulness you can get on a Macan, but missing a couple things I should have gotten.

Another fan of carbon black here.

Mercedes used to make a similar color about 15 years ago, not sure when the last time they offered it was. And IIRC they also called it carbon black.

The blue hue very much pops out in bright sunlight, and the color changes to black in the shade and in the dark.

I would also expect it to look great on the Macan.

There are three colors that come to mind. My top three are ....

Number 3: Miguello Red (also known as Hellrot Red) from the BMW lineage.

Number 2: Carmine Red from the Porsche Macan (my '18 Turbo)

Number 1: Imola Red from the BMW lineage. I've owned 3 imola red BMW's. Love it!

I hate to say this but I dig jet black metallic (for this vehicle specifically) so much that even if I were given a buffet of colors I'd still pick it .
