Default Thoughts on Chalk?

I had thought I'd decided on Night Blue Metallic but then I saw a Macan in Chalk yesterday and thought it looked great. Any thoughts on this color and specifically thoughts on configuring this color - particularly black vs chrome window trim, roof rails etc?

I haven't seen one in person, but every time somebody posts a picture of one on here they look so good, to the point where if I were to be getting another Porsche I'd be looking for one in that color.
I tend to like darker trims on cars versus chrome as chrome feels cheap and gives me Honda vibes.


But I think many will tell you that color is a personal choice.
There's somebody on the forums asking around about green with red interior, some say looks like a watermelon and others say it looks unique. Get what you like and what you will enjoy looking at every day.

Funny... and true.

And I tend to think that black trim looks cheap!

I think it's a great color. I have seen several, 911's in Chalk and recently a Macan. Depends on whether you want a traditional color or something a little different. Goes great with black or bourdeaux interior.

I'm going with espresso leather - think it would be great with that too

I love chalk. If I bought one today I think I'd get chalk with red seats. I've had so many cars with black trim that got cloudy and dull as it aged so I've chosen bright trim lately. Not an issue if you get a new car every year. Porsche's trim is not chrome, it's a satin aluminum finish that I think looks great.

Whew !
How do help somebody w/ their color ???

I say chrome detracts from the color - just me maybe

Chalk w/ the beige would be good

Personally, I have Midnight Blue and love it... w/ beige

Each to his own
Go to a dealer and park them side by side
Shouldn't take long for you to decide

Chalk is a great color. We configured our car with that car: PKBDYYR6 We will be picking up our car on August 22 from the Porsche Experience Center in LA. Then we can post some actual photos.
You definitely need the black window trim. A black roof rails too. We also got the black door handles and black sport tailpipes. We didn't think we needed to go the gloss black side blades or LED headlights in black, as the side blades and headlights are already black.
Now the question will be: what interior leather will you go with? We went with agate gray. Some have gone with Carmen Red and black, but a bit too bold for us.

Nice build, thanks. I will get the espresso leather.
