    Question about 997mk2 colour

    hi guys ,for you ...

    this colour ...is the new 997 mk2 blue or not ?

    look :




    this ,for me it's the new ....look at the shadows ...

    also this :






    and this is the "old"one ,the night blu ...





    in the official pic ,for me ,the colour it's too light ....in the fist pic I think it's wonderful ! ...like the old 996 lapis blu but a little more lighter and harder ..

    Do you like or not the new colour ?

    I don't think it is. The new blue (pictured in the press release photo) to replace Cobalt is Aqua Blue. And, to me, it looks pretty close to Cobalt. No?

    The other pictures (of the test mules)appear to be Midnight blue.

    Re: Question about 997mk2 colour

    This would be my color combo. Is it meteor or slate + natural brown ??

    Its meteor/natural brown (slate is no longer offered on the 997.2)

    BTW, I ordered my car in the meteor/brown combo, I naturally agree its a verrry nice combo (on "paper" grey and brown shouldn't go together, but when you see it in real life, Wow!)

    Here are pictures of this combo on a 997.1 Targa:

    Re: Question about 997mk2 colour

    Congrats. on your new car and color combo. Hope you will post some pic. once you get a beautiful 997.2

    Re: Question about 997mk2 colour

    Sergini,.. would you take the PCCB ? I know you changed it on your last C2S. I do about 10 track days a year. Do you think I will kill the PCCB ?

    Re: Question about 997mk2 colour

    >Hi Gnil , If I remember well you do a lot of Nuerburgring "turistenfahrer" ..There you KIll that brakes beacuse you can't cool them .
    The Garkenhopf and Dottigen hohe straght isn't too longer to make them cool and your PCCB will be destroied soon .
    In other track day (or Porsche club events ) I think that thare are no problems .
    If you like them you can buy a set of steel discs (996 cup) that arn't expencive (600 euros) and put tham on when you want to go to the Ring .
    I don't buy PCCB because I think I don't use the 997 on track ...fort the track I use the Cup car that it's better everywhere .

    I have to place the order next week ,my dealer promises me to give me the car in the middle of july if I buy the first cars used for the presentation party .
    the colour avaible in stock are :

    the new blu , the new green ,the new "cappuccino" white ,and an other colour ( meteor gray or black) .

    white ,I had my 997 Gt3
    Black ,I had my 997 S
    meteor ,too anonymous
    I hate green .....

    next week I'll take a look at the car and they option ( she must have PDK ,full leather ,sportcrono plus ,and -10 pasm sport ....the other option aren't important...

    now my favorite it's blue ...but i have to see it on the car and hope that the leather interior colour it's good and not to "german" .

    if I dislike it ,my second choice will be the "cappuccino" white + cocoa full leather .

    Re: Question about 997mk2 colour

    Hi Sergini.
    Thanks... now I do maybe only 3/4 days at the Ring a year ( scuderia once + one other day) . The rest is on tracks like Paul Ricard/Le Castellet, Bresse, Dijon .
    So, if the main thing is to keep the discs cool enough I will think about it. I am very tempted for the feel/weight of them ( and lack of dust) but the price is important. I do not want to have to replace them.

    I also have an order. I will not get the first car at my dealer as the first one is the presentation car and , here, it is impossible to choose the specs.The car that comes has no PDK, as there are only 9 cars with PDK delivered in Switzerland for the presentation and my dealer says he has no choice. He takes what he gets. ( are you sure you can choose options at your dealer ? ) .
    I will get the first 'client' car, built in july, delivered in august.

    As for your choice, I would be tempted by the blue..with black inside, but would have to see more of that color first.

    Thanks Misha, I will as soon as I receive it (its a late 997.1 build, am not too bothered about missing out on PDK since I ordered a manual anyway).

    The car should arrive in mid-August.

    Pault Richard ? hehehehhe!!

    Remember don't tell to Gherard ( the chaef of le castellet circuit) that you know me ! hehehe!!

    Why ? he desqualified me during the last race

    look : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0VtpKeSTmao

    too many kisses = not allowed in club races


    for the PCCB ....if you like to go to the track I think it's better a Gt3 ,with little tuning you have the best track toy in the world !

    If you prefer the "anonimous" beauty of the "stock" 997 S I think it's better to buy 2 front 997 cup calipers + 2 380 mm steel or 350 disc .for the front ..theese items are very cheap (2500 euros for / 9000 euros for pccb) and you brake more and better than pccb . Here in italy a lot of club racing drivers use this option ,no problems and not expencive!

    for the 20 kg less ,don't worry ...20 kg are 0.00001 sec ...

    Or better to have the stock brakes and put Pagid green ,SRF oil and steel brake tubes ...

    hope to be on the Ring for the next Vln 6 hr with cup ..and I'll do some lap after the race with 997 ..hope to do first restiling video !

    Re: Question about 997mk2 colour

    Excuse him guys ,he is born in thesouth of Italy : naples ...mafioso ,baffo nero ,mandolino ,terrone .

    Re: Question about 997mk2 colour

    Hi sergini,

    i am quite sure that the first and the third pic are the night blue metallic and the Porsche pic is the new aqua blue.
    The night blue looks different due to the sunlight...
    I would go for the night blue...

    U mentioned the cup calipers for the GT3, are they any different from the stock steel calipers for the GT3 which come with the 350mm rotors? i have the PCCB and can already see the wear of the rotors (small rings with cracks) and therefore just ordered the pagid, green pads for PCCB which are supposed to be better for the rotors when used on the track...

    I will also race in the 6h race. u know for sure ur gonna be there?

    good luck in finding a not too german looking color combo!

    greets rantanplan

    Re: Question about 997mk2 colour

    hi sergini, too much fun in reading your threads, posts and topics! as well as your great articles on the 'ring in EVO....you are really number one!!!!!
    hope to come to the 'ring in august and see you new cabrio. max degiovanni

    Re: Question about 997mk2 colour

    hi Max , unfortunatly my cabrio is on delay ,so I'go to the Ring with my Gt3 ...

    I try to to an other best lap better than this : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OW1NO1VSgv4
