Welcome to Shoot The Pink, where TTACers bag pink cars. The rules can’t be simpler:

  • A car, any car
  • It must be pink

Send your pink trophies to Include some info about what and where. And don’t forget your TTAC screen name.

Daveinchina is first with this very pink Cayman from China:

Pictures of pink Porsche with poorly applied rhinestones probably Swarovsky crystals. Absolutely hideous looking, found in Xujiahui in Shanghai.

Who knows, if there are enough, we might grade them

    I actually don't mind pink cars. It sure breaks up the dull black/white/silver/gray the US seems afflicted with. Sometimes while coming to work I think I'm watching b+w tv..

      Yeah, trying to find a used car in a color seems near impossible. Ended up with a silver one. I would have prefered the unsellable brown.

    Porsche Bismol - "Accept no substitute."

  • Redapple2 34 yr in Michigan salt?
  • Mike-NB2 Zero. Not interested at all. I often don't have my phone with me, and if I do, I completely ignore it. Unless it were to catch fire, of course. But I'm old, so that has to be taken into account too.
  • Urlik It’s only important to me for navigation. OEM’s do Nav all wrong and charge for the privilege. While once they charged big money for map updates, they charge subscriptions for the privilege of a worse Nav than you have on your phone.The other stuff mirroring brings is mere gravy.
  • Rna65689660 Zero interest
  • Redapple2 1- bad quality reputation and dealer horror stories make a VW purchase not happening.2- 1.5 turbo in my driveway is something I d be leery of every hour of ownership.
