As far as car colour fashion goes, white is the new black, which is the reason Thais are clamouring for 'exclusive' white cars.

Precisely!

White pearl/mica is the new black - marketed as "prestige" color, while regular white is the new red - used to market "sporty" variants.

From a more global POV, blue is gaining popularity to market "green" (read environmentally friendly) cars, while green/orange/pink (all in mica finishes) are the colors used to attract the youth market, and matt finishes are the new supercar standard..

Probably a face/status thing also as white cars cost more, at least on the camrys and accords.

Yes, you do pay a little more for white pearl/mica on the Camry, Accord and the Pajero Sport, however it's the same price as other options on the Teana, and regular white is actually a little cheaper than the other standard colors on some models.

Technically speaking, if you order a car without color you've just ordered a black one.

No, any substans or material that doesn't have a color is black. (technically speaking, black is by definition the absence of color (and therefore not a color) (colormatters).

So, technically speaking, if you order a car without color you should get a black one. However, since all material reflects some light, what is percieved as black isn't really black.

The result is that, techically speaking, if you order a black car you dont actually get a black one.

White, on the other hand, is a mix of all existing colors (and is therefore a color) (colormatters)

And, paint, is not a color, but any liquid, liquifiable, or mastic composition which after application to a substrate in a thin layer is converted to an opaque solid film. (wikipedia)

I knew I should have gone for blood.. :D

Well done, But my response was to..(if you order a car without color you've just ordered a black one)

Meaning they would not deliver one without paint on it, It would go rusty wouldn't it?

Hence the primer, any colour you like if you want But never Black

I can sing a rainbow

:D

Maybe, this isn't black and white, there's a huge grey area surrounding this topic.
