Point taken, but the 550 you refer to that appeared in french racing colors in '55(?) and was owned by a french racing team (hence the color scheme), the 550 was introduced to the world in the '53 Paris auto show was silver. I'm not saying that this never happened, but the turbo was such a hallmark car (especially as it realted to racing, as was the 550) that i don't see that porsche would introuduce in another's racing colors. I should have made my original point more clear, sorry.
