Are Porsche's Beige Interiors Blinding Drivers?

When deciding between beige or black for an interior color of your Porsche, I’m guessing you never thought “I wonder which one of these will reflect the light of a 1000 suns?”

But for some owners who chose beige, that’s exactly what’s happening. The light-colored dashboard is apparently creating a glare on the windshield that’s so intense, some say the car becomes very difficult to drive.

Two California residents were tired of their Porsche’s glare and filed a lawsuit in the Superior Court of California Los Angeles County. The lawsuit says:

“The glare and reflection from the windshield is a safety risk that Porsche fails to mention when selling the cars.”

Porsche, in the least shocking response of the century, doesn’t think the case has any merit.

“All automotive windshields are made of transparent glass and are therefore reflective.”

Science! The automaker went on to say the plaintiffs didn’t give a date when they first noticed the problem, or if the problem actually prevented them from using their cars.
