In the 90’s, red became the go-to accent color for denoting performance and everyone started using it on brake calipers. Then carbon ceramic rotors came into the market and were too expensive to be standard on any car, so a new color was needed to denote something even racier and more upgraded. Not sure who did it first (may have been Porsche), but yellow then became the top dog caliper color.I don't get why red was the go-to color for calipers. I like yellow on certain colors. Mine are blue, but not that massive.
Modern Rolls Royce I couldn't agree any more. However 1980/1990's Rolls Royce and it's the opposite for me. This is the other lady in my Dentist's stable, taken care of by yours truly. Although I don't drive it as frequently as the Ferrari, but I have put on some serious miles over the last 12 years. I use to keep the car for at least a week, it was amusing showing up to work with it.
1989 Rolls Royce Silver Spur. Interior is almost brand new. He bought it for his father before he passed, it was his dream car. At well over 6,000 pounds it's no wonder why the mafia loved them; heavy enough to get through anything in its path and quick enough to get away from the scene.

You thinking about it too? I’m sticking with the current lineup for 2-3 years and then thinking about trading one car in for a 992 GT3 (hopefully can get Touring), or two cars for a Tributo.Seems like 992 owners have the option of speccing their PCCBs with black calipers now (for an extra ~$1k).
And Porsche really needs to announce the 992 GT3 ASAP so I can figure out wtf I'm going to do with the RS (and how much money I'm going to lose in the process).
