Default Exterior Color Question

It's difficult to tell from the small color "swatches" on the website - does anyone know which of the grays (Manhattan or Typhoon) is closet to the Porsche Volcano Gray? Thanks

I've seen Manhattan and Typhoon in real life. I know that it isn't the answer you want, but the Porsche seems to be right in the middle of those :-)
I've selected Manhattan. Was thinking about Galaxy Blue, but that color changes from amazing to simply ugly depending on the light and angle.

Manhattan Gray is significantly darker.

Absolutely. Manhattan is, in the right lighting, much closer to black then gray

I've been curious 'bout all these monochromes... I built this. (Not that screen colors are 100% accurate.) And... But this is only Audi, not P-car.
