There aren't too many yellow cars out there. Which shade do you prefer?

    The 911's yellow definitely has a greenish tint in your picture. Not sure if that's the lighting, the camera, or the car itself. Definitely don't like greenish yellow. Yellow with a tint of orange is okay, but a more pure yellow a la the CRX of the late 80s/early 90s is even better.

    I like my cars to be tennis ball optic yellow. If you're going with a bright color, why half [non-permissible content removed] it? Pair it with Subaru rally blue wheels with a little bit of yellow so it looks green at speed. Hot.

    I'd go with the ST's deeper, darker yellow.

    Jeep had the best yellows and oranges in 2011 and 2012. Detonator Yellow, Dozer and Orange Crush.
    Yet Edmunds bought a dull black one.

    Big Bird yellow. Porsche gets a pass, though, because they look good even in beige and brown!

    Big Bird.

    Lemon Meringue all the way. Can't stand Tangerine Scream.

    I like the Porsche yellow best, but under the parking lights it looks green. It's also amazing how velte the Porsche looks compared to the derpy ST...

    Lemon Meringue is for dessert--too much of a girl's color like all of those New Beetles in light yellow. Big Bird is less obnoxious, but I would feel too self-concious to be seen in one. Or to have the State Troopers notice me better.

    P.S. did you park them next to the fire extinguisher because the color is so hot?

    It's not really yellow. It's orange. A tangerine is the color of an orange, not a banana. Hemi orange is not the only shade of orange.
