    Rare, Mexico Blue color 997

    Its on Ebay, 2006, and its fully loaded.
    Its sooo jazzie, I feel like I need a Pina Colada now or something!!

    Re: Rare, Mexico Blue color 997

    Looks like somthing Hugh Hefner would give the playmate of the year as a prize ... no it is really beautiful but I can not see getting it ... more of a color for a girl .

    Re: Rare, Mexico Blue color 997

    Thats funny the Hugh Hefner comment.
    I wouldnt buy this color, but its fun to look at for oh about 10 minutes LOL

    Re: Rare, Mexico Blue color 997

    Absolutely Hideous

    Re: Rare, Mexico Blue color 997

    Reminds me of one of the colors the Porsche engineer chooses from a jelly been in the old 993 commercial...

    Re: Rare, Mexico Blue color 997

    Gulf blue!

    Re: Rare, Mexico Blue color 997

    for the color blind perhaps??

    or is that AFTER the pina coladas, V???



    Re: Rare, Mexico Blue color 997

    perfect color for these ladies

    Re: Rare, Mexico Blue color 997

    This one is listed as Atlas Grey...? Looks more like Seal to me. Which one are you, Vincenzina? LOL...

    As seen on Ebay

    they should have sent these babies to IRAQ, with heavy Artillery like those they would have won the war and been welcomed to stay as long as they wished.

    Vote AmirSarmad for 2008 elections

    Re: Rare, Mexico Blue color 997

    I like it, I wouldn't mind a 997turbo in that color.

    Re: Rare, Mexico Blue color 997

    It's Mexico Blue and obviously someobody ordered this car (PCCBs,PSE) and backed out for whatever reason. Must have lost a significant deposit. Interesting because my dealer and I were discussing Paint to Sample, and he said they are very reluctant to order these cars because even with a 10-15% deposit the deal may not come to fruition and they are stuck with the car. It's also clear than the dealer is having a difficult time selling it since it's up for "auction" on eBay. I used to think I liked this color, but it doesn't look right on the 997. Always thought I'd like a 993 in Mexico or Riviera Blue.

    Re: Rare, Mexico Blue color 997

    This is similar to one of the colors that Porsche had on the cars used in the first ROC series. Also had hot pink etc. I think R&T described the cars as looking like easter eggs. I recall seeing a 930 on the 405 a few years back that was metallic yellow--not speed yellow. More lemon yellow. I thought it looked pretty bitchen myself.

    Re: Rare, Mexico Blue color 997

    Already outta date. Good color for a minivan or a used Ford.

    Re: Rare, Mexico Blue color 997

    Reminds me of Nogaro Blue on the S4 which is awesome...not so sure about it on a 997 though.

    Re: Rare, Mexico Blue color 997

    Sorry but anyone who would order this on the 997 needs a wallop in the head. The more I look at it - the more hideous it gets.

    In fact, this is perhaps the ugliest color (other than pea-green) that I have seen.

    No I would really be nasty ,, I would throw salt in their eyes ..

    I think it would suit me though ...

    throt..

    Re: Rare, Mexico Blue color 997

    Why doesn't Porsche say to customers that they will only make a car for a customer in a tasteful colour?

    Otherwise people will ask for baby pink DB9s or lime green Bentleys.

    Re: Rare, Mexico Blue color 997

    Everyone has different preferences. Someone out there just might want a baby pink DB9 one day, even though that person probably wouldn't deserve to be driving such a beautiful car.
    I don't like the way that color looks on the 997. Why is it called Mexico blue? I don't see a connection between the country and the color.

    My friend's sister has a Hot Pink Cayenne. It surely turns heads. But so does she . . .

    Re: Rare, Mexico Blue color 997

    There are plenty of Laguna Seca M3's driving around, I don't hear any complaints about that.

    Throt, I think I could see you in that color.. cab of course, with hair flyin

    Re: Rare, Mexico Blue color 997

    I the Mexico Blue 997 is gorgeous. Some of the people in this thread who don't like this color have colors I don't like. I especially like the comment about only selling tasteful colors. That's all Porsche sells. The thing is, the person laying down the money on the desk is the one who decides what's tasteful. And by the way, all DB9's are essentially paint and leather to sample.

    Hmmmm, that would be an interesting color on a Cayene. A color from the 70s that I like is aubergine (sp?) deep plum color. Really looked nice on the smaller cars. And didn't Ferrari have a blood red color at one time?

    Very well said!

    Re: Rare, Mexico Blue color 997

    i actually saw this vehicle or one like it at my local dealer, all i can say is that it is hiddious!!! Also has a price tag 100k. A real easy way to ruin a beauty.

    Re: Rare, Mexico Blue color 997

    You anti mexico blue people are funny. You are kidding yourselves if you really think a new 997 in any mundane color is "stealthy." Feeling passive aggressive are you?
    Check your sport chrono buttons.

    I'll get some pics next time I see her (probably of cameraphone quality). It's a pretty rediculous looking car.
