    Re: NEW Reallife SHOTS

    very nice

    Re: NEW Reallife SHOTS

    Great stuff, thank you!

    Re: NEW Reallife SHOTS

    ABSOLUTELY STUNNING!!!!!!!!!!

    Re: NEW Reallife SHOTS

    Very nice!!! You can really see the great details of the design......

    Re: NEW Reallife SHOTS

    Thanks....Baby Got Back that's for sure!

    Re: NEW Reallife SHOTS

    Now I see the "problem" with the fog lights... not good

    Re: NEW Reallife SHOTS

    Is that Arctic Silver or some other silver ? Whatever it is , it's beautiful !

    Re: NEW Reallife SHOTS

    Great pics, thanks!
    I'm liking this car more and more every time I see it, especially the rear shots. I'm still coming to terms with the front a little, but it just keeps on looking better and better.

    Re: NEW Reallife SHOTS

    @Rick
    I think Silver GT

    For some reason this one looks GT Silver.....as it appears to be a bit darker. Compare it to the wheels. Thoughts?

    Re: NEW Reallife SHOTS

    I think you're right, GT silver. Fog lights the only design belmish.

    Re: NEW Reallife SHOTS

    Bravo, Steve!

    Re: NEW Reallife SHOTS

    I was thinking GT silver too, but had no idea for sure. Sometimes I have trouble distinguishing colors from photos, so I didn't want to give any false information.

    Re: NEW Reallife SHOTS

    WOW ! Thanks, Revvv

    Re: NEW Reallife SHOTS

    Nice! But those foglights are horrendous!!

    Re: NEW Reallife SHOTS

    I still can't understand why some people hate those fog lights so much.

    Besides last year's VW Beetle ( they are now mounted flush!) and current Audi A4, here's another car with the " Cayman fogs " ..a Hyundai

    Ya, they really don't bother me that much anymore....not the best aspect of the car, but the rest of it is looking so darn good they are pretty easy to get past.....at least for me.

    Re: NEW Reallife SHOTS

    The Hyundai also has wheels and a windshield. Wish Cayman didn't have those!
    I'm being a smart a$$, but I think they look good, so I'm not particularly concerned that there is some resemblance to other cars. Adds some interest versus Boxster, though I guess that is a bit hypocritical to my previous point. I think the fogs look better on the non-silver cars, like yellow. Looks sharp against the black space around them.

    Re: NEW Reallife SHOTS

    Boy, I thought I was sold on Speed Yellow, but I can't get this GT Silver off my mind - is it worth the extra $3,000 ????

    Re: NEW Reallife SHOTS

    Very Nice , I love the back, but I don't think I'll ever like the fog lights or the side vents.....

    Re: NEW Reallife SHOTS

    I love the fog lights

    Re: NEW Reallife SHOTS

    I love those hips!


    Re: NEW Reallife SHOTS

    Discerning between Artic and GT silver is not easily done in photos. I've seen the two next to each other and the major difference is rather a tinting effect with the GT less "white" or reflective than Artic. Porsche's determination of what constitutes a "special" color as opposed to standard or "metallic" is either totally capricious or utterly cynical since you are paying either $0, $800 or $3000 for the same color depending on the model year offered.

    Re: NEW Reallife SHOTS

    Great pics mate!

    i'm usually one to dislike silver cars in general but that is HOTT!

    ...and what a great ass!

    Re: NEW Reallife SHOTS

    Not sure overly keen on the rear window wiper, spolis the lines somewhat. Thankfully not standard.

    Porsche color pricing is pretty wacked out IMO and definitely has nothing to do with the paint itself. Dark Olive on a Cayman is $3k, but $500 on a Cayenne!

    Local dealer had two Boxsters right next to each other one Artic, one GT. Brought the wife and a couple of friends to see them both....never told anyone about the price diff, just asked them which one they liked best. The overwelming choice (4-0) was Artic. I like GT Silver and think its a great color.....but not a $3K color by any means.

    Re: NEW Reallife SHOTS

    Those pics are stunning, as is the color.

    I was also able to compare GT Silver with Arctic on 997s while visiting the dealer in Munich. The consensus of the dozen or so people there was that Arctic was brighter but GT had more depth and character and was hands-down the better color for a 997.

    It has lots to do with the lighting and the particular model of car it is on. GT is amazing on the 997 and Cayman too. For some reason, Arctic seems much better on a Boxster.

    Is there enough difference to justify the cost? Absolutely not. Is GT Silver on my September-build 997? Absolutely.
