"I was all ready to go and then [Vehicle Testing Assistant] Mike Magrath calls and tells me the Porsche is brown." For Edmunds photographer Kurt Niebuhr, our 2008 Porsche 911 Carrera and its Macadamia Metallic paint was bad news. Brown cars don't photograph well against natural, earth-tone backgrounds, he explains — backgrounds like the mountain road we were about to embark upon. Scrub that plan, then.
Yet this 911's color speaks volumes to a particular type of Porsche buyer — one we respect greatly. With a few exceptions ("Brown? What is this, 1977?"), our staff — including Niebuhr — came to view Macadamia Metallic as a brilliantly understated and classy way to festoon this brilliant car. This is the type of color someone would pick if they couldn't care less about what other people thought about their high-priced automotive purchase. This buyer bought this 911 because it's excellent, not to show it off at Pure or Mood or any other one-word nightspot.
At the same time, this entire 911 speaks to a similar understated character. Our test car was a "base" 2008 Porsche 911 Carrera. No 4S, no Targa, no Turbo, no GT this or GT that. Automotive publications usually want to test the fastest and fanciest version available. In this case, we wanted to see what a plain old Carrera gave you. The answer is quite a lot, to the point of making us ponder why you'd need any more power or handling capability on a regular basis.
