4 White Cars... What Are The Odds?

I was out biking and was going down a local street and noticed 4 cars parked near the entrance to a creek. I was surprised that all four cars were white. What are the odds that of four cars parked one behind the other would all be white? (Photo taken in September of this year.)

White is the cheapest colour, over here at least.

A company restriction is also likely.

I know this is not the thread to do it, but I was looking at modern cars the other day, and I have to say Fleet does have a point with the blob-styling. It's getting out of control...

Black and Red can usually be had as solid paint as well.

Sad, but true. Maybe someday it will improve.

That's a lot of white there (even though there is some green mixed in). Were those cars parked next to a creek, too?

was the creek a condition? And no they were not parked near a creek unless a small stream runs behind the Porsche factory.

No, the creek is not a requirement. But it would be another coincidence if there was one.

White has been the most chosen car color in America for five years in a row.

Saw a white Veloster yesterday which looked great.

You know, in the Arabian gulf, white is the most luxurious/sought-after color of all, because it personifies cleanliness.
