Outdoor cover recommendation (that's not silver)

Hello folks,
 
Anyone got a recommendation for an outdoor cover for a 991 that's not the Porsche offering? I'd rather it was a discreet colour, like black, not 'hello, Porsche sat under here!' silver.
 
Thanks

Have a look at the Ultimate Outdoor Cover from Classic Additons.

Thanks Terry. But…
 
"Manufactured in a discrete grey colour"
 
Not so much. That looks as bright as the Porsche silver ones! 
 
(Edit: I've just realised they've used the wrong word too. I think they mean "discreet" 😂)

🙄 What makes you think I'm lacking one?
 
I'm not. But leaving the 🐷 in there whilst the walls and ceiling are being painted isn't going to end well, is it.
 
So I'd like to stick the car outside for a couple of days whilst it's being done. Preferably not under a car cover that sticks out like a sore thumb though 🤣

Personally I would just park the 911 outside for a few days, I previously looked in to outdoor covers however from what I have found they can cause more harm then good from the risk of rubbing the paintwork and marking it, also I have read where owners have noticed patches of discoloration where water has got in between the bodywork and the cover. 

911.2 4S, Sapphire Blue Metallic, Graphite Blue leather interior, Manual transmission, Rear-axle steering, Sport Suspension, Sport exhaust, 18 way Sport Plus seats, Sport Chrono Package, BOSE® Surround Sound-System + other goodies!

Aye, I'd read a lot of the same sorts of comments too Carlton. But I figure it's going to be for such a short space of time that I doubt those factors are going to come into play. I just don't want a 911 sat on the drive for the local scallywags to notice.

Id be asking a friend to park it on their driveway or better still garage  you could buy a carcoon which wouldn’t rub on the car but overkill for a couple of days, oh and expensive!

On a more serious note than my earlier tongue in cheek!- I can echo carltons comment with my experience- a few years ago I used a cover for a few weeks and needed a serious machine polish afterwards
never again

Hmm, worrisome Dylan. Maybe I’ll just go with Carlton’s cheap and obvious solution; and give the painter less tea so he cracks on and gets the job finished faster 🤣

i can recommend the Stormshield + Outdoor cover from Specialised Covers.

I have one in navy blue for my 991.1S and used it for about two years. I am lucky to now have a garage and the cover sits on a shelf. It is in good nick and I am happy to sell it if you are interested.

Hi, I won a car cover in the PCGB Goodwood Charity Day raffle last year but do not think I will have use for it, so it would be good if it could be found a home. (I held off contributing to this thread as it is silver and therefore did not meet the original criteria laid down).
 
Mine is a completely unused Coverzone Stormforce All Weather 4-Layer Cover (Product id CCC797) in a carrying case, details here:
 https://www.cover-zone.com/products/car-covers/stormforce/
 
If anyone is interested, please PM me and we can work out how best to carry out a handover in these v difficult times everyone is living through.
 
All the best,
Keith

Many thanks for the additional replies. Weather not bad now, and I think I have an outdoor solution sorted. So I’ll let somebody else snaffle the bargain resales…
