In a March Madness-style tournament bracket.
Porsche arguably boasts the greatest color palette of any automaker. Many of Porsche's greatest hits are offered on new models like the all-electric Taycan, but those that aren't can be special ordered via the Paint to Sample option on a Porsche 911 or any other model. To celebrate its incredible paint colors and feed into the March Madness hype, Porsche decided to create an online Twitter poll called the Tournament Of Colors.
Just like the NCAA Men's Division I Basketball Tournament, Porsche's bracket features 64 teams (in this case, colors), competing in 63 matchups to crown a winner. The Porsche tournament will take place over the next three weeks, starting today. Porsche will post each of the matchups on Twitter, allowing fans to vote on the winner until one color remains.
Keeping with the March Madness bracket tradition, Porsche broke down the tournament into four brackets: classic, metallic, non-metallic, and modern. Each color in the four brackets is given a seed ranging from one to 16 based on its popularity (according to Porsche). In the first round, the first seed faces off against the 16th seed, the second seed faces the 15th seed, the third seed faces the 14th seed, and so on.
The first seeds gain a significant advantage early on by facing against the lower seeds, but this tournament may go differently because it is a fan vote. There are bound to be some significant upsets along the way, even based on early results.
Porsche has designated Mexico Blue, Voodoo Blue, Lava Orange, and Amazon Green Metallic as the first seeds in their respective brackets. Signal Orange, Conda Green, Saphire Blue Metallic, and Amethyst Metallic make up the second seeds, the third seeds consist of Irish Green, Gulf Orange, Wimbleton Green Metallic, and Carmine Red, and the fourth seeds are Rubystone Red, Gulf Blue, GT Silver Metallic, and Chalk.
Some of our sleeper picks include Miami Blue (a fifth seed), Racing Yellow (a 15th seed), Guards Red (a seventh seed), Mint Green (a sixth seed), and Brewster Green (a fifth seed). We are personally pulling for Rubystone Red to win it all because we love offbeat colors.
