DuPont have just published their vehicle color survey results for 2008. I didn’t realise that silver had been overtaken in 2007 and the news for 2008 is that it still hasn’t regained a its place at the head of the pack.
The most popular color over all in 2008 is the combination of white and white effects (e.g. pearlescents).
White certainly looks good on this particular car:
DuPont have produced a number of color charts showing the results of the color surveys in different regions of the world. I’ve reproduced a few of them below.
It’s interesting that white was a winner in the US, whilst across the pond in Euope, blacks were the most popular in 2008.

I was going to prepare a poll to accompany this post, but I don’t think it’d retain it’s relevance without tying it to a particular generation of cars, or perhaps the region.
So, what color is your Saab?
What model, what year? And what region are you in.
If we get enough responses I might try and collate them into some meaningful information.
1994 Saab 9000 – green
1985 Saab 900 – silver
Australia. Bewdy mate!
