You're right, silver and black sell.
SAAB leavens their color mix with a few select special colors, but it's more to get highway visibility than to sell bright colors in volume, as the demand is just not there in volume. The current example would be the Lightning Blue, which is very vibrant. Monte Carlo yellow had one of its infrequent resuurections last year. Talladega red from a few years back was too agressive, but was replaced by Imola, as you mentioned. Then there are the "spring special" colors, which add some variety.
Still, I buy grey and silver, and most others do, too.
Cayenne was not well loved. The dealers had to move their inventory with big discounts. Especially with GM in the loop now, watching the numbers, I don't think you'll see a lit adventerous colors like that. If you like it, though, you might find a nice Cayenne 9^5 on a tradein or lease return.
