Scores on the doors for cars at 92forty, as featured in the montage in the current club magazine:
White: 29
Red: 28
Silver: 11
Black: 7
Dark blues: 4
Maroon: 3
Pale greens: 3
White over red: 2
Dark greens: 2
Green over dark green: 2
Dark Grey: 2
Pale Blues: 2
Bronze: 1
Gold: 1
Silver over grey: 1
Gulf blue & backwards: 1
Multicoloured/photobombed: 1

Bound to be inaccurate since some colours look different on the photos, for example Roo's looked bronze.
Total includes Ricky's GTS as it was outside (at least at one point) but not Bell's GTS or the GTR, or the white restoration shell that was outside. Should add up to 100 cars. You're welcome!

Thx for that... Do you think in percentage terms the 2016 turnout/colours reflects those ordered over the period of manufacture (or are there colours which didn't show/have for some reason not been represented?

Good question, and maybe this is for another thread but looking specifically at the cars at 92forty which must be a good reflection of the model run, I assume red and white were offered for the whole model run from 76-88 and that they are likely to have been no cost options as opposed to the metallics which might have cost extra and also have been year specific.
Two things that surprise me are that black isn't more popular (maybe it was a cost option?), and that overall (and at the risk of offending absolutely everyone here!) the colour palette that 924s were available in was pretty safe and boring, certainly in comparison with the 914 before it and with other 70's and 80's sports cars.

Hardly any 70s cars present and the 80s were black, red, and white... anything else was just not done.

Would be fun/interesting to do a retrospective poll on all the available official colours - without necessarily having to vote for one's own car/s.

Not entirely correct, in 1980 for example, standard colours were Mocha Black, Lilac, Mexico Beige, Malaga Red, Monaco Blue, Amethyst, Venus Red and Alpine White! No shortage of colour choice there.

Because I'm bored and curious, I had a look at the photos I took of the 60 odd cars from the 2014 national rally at Donington, and it's very similar...

red: 17
white: 15
silver: 5
maroon: 4
dark blues: 4
pale blues: 3
black: 2
white over red 2
silver over grey: 2
silver over blue: 1
green over dark green: 1
yellow: 1
bronze: 1
brown: 1

Still reckon black is under represented.
