    Kind of Blue

    There seem to be millions of different kinds of blue that Porsche have offered over time. Let's see yours here!

    Re: Kind of Blue

    Here's my old Boxster S. It's Lapis Blue, which is my favorite of the Porsche blues:

    Is that the huge Porsche dealer in Stuttgart-Zuffenhausen? If so when I was there I saw a black Carrera GT just idling with nobody in it in one of those bay doors. It was very tempting....

    yes, you will always see one or several CGTs there. Either parked in front of the entrance ready for pickup or still in the workshop or, hmm, a crashed one hidden behind the garage
    A friend of mine who was there a few months ago told me that they even have one inside the dealership somewhere upstairs. A CGT owner with no space at home stores the car there over the winter, or so

    Man, the things they had to do just to get people to take those Carrera GTs off their hands!

    Re: Kind of Blue

    Here's my previous Boxster in Lapis. It's at the dealer waiting to be turned in for the next photo.

    Re: Kind of Blue

    And here's the Midnight replacement that afternoon.

    Re: Kind of Blue

    There have been at least 29 different shades of blue offered by Porsche over the years, which Atomic 80 and I documented in this thread.

    Re: Kind of Blue

    very striking - I never get tired of seeing your car.


    It reminds me of the 1970s when people weren't afraid of colors!




    nat brown/wood is pure class, too

    Re: Kind of Blue

    One should not fear color!

    Re: Kind of Blue

    Turquoise metallic (25D) is in fact a lot closer to green.



    Re: Kind of Blue

    Groom: I believe what you got there is Turquoise Green Metallic (L25C). Blue Turquoise Metallic is a separate color (L25D).

    L25C Turquoise Green Metallic
    L25D Blue Turquoise Metallic

    Re: Kind of Blue

    25C and 25D are the same color. If you look at Porsche color codes, you'll notice that 993-era colors have three color codes: one two-digit code, and two three-digit codes.

    I suspect that's because depending on the country, either oil-based or water-based paints were offered.
    The two-digit code is the option code. You'd order option K1 "Turquoise metallic", and depending on the country, you'd wind up with either 25C (oil-based) or 25D (water-based).

    K1/25C/25D were only offered in 1996. They were replaced with J3/25H/25K (Libelltürkis metallic, a.k.a. Ocean Jade) for 1997/1999.
