    Questions about Riviera Blue?

    What is everyone's opinion on Riviera Blue? I personally love it and will most likely pick it for my 2011 GT3.

    From my reading, others seem to like it too but wouldn't order it. Isn't it a timeless classic Porsche color? What gives? Would I be married to the car because of the color? Smiley


    Re: Questions about Riviera Blue?

    IMHO you'll be fine - with a GT3, bold, non-metallic colours work fine - especially classic colours - so it shouldn't affect your ability to on-sell in future.

    Re: Questions about Riviera Blue?

    I love the colour and thought hard about it for my car. 

    In the end i went for white as i ntend to track the car a lot and thus wanted a colour that would be easier to touch in the stone chips. Also it would have added a production delay to my car and cost an extra £2700, which i thought was better spent on other toys for it.

    Another colour worth considering is Mexico blue. Very similar, see below:-

    Re: Questions about Riviera Blue?

    When I ordered my car I had some thoughts about the color blue. Riviera, Mexico or Oslo blue were my favorits. I used this thread http://www.teamspeed.com/forums/porsches-past-general-porsche-news/873-all-shades-blue-offered-porsche.html to get information about different shades of blue.

    But in the end I ordered i complete plain black Boxster. Difficult to maintain, but looking great (personal taste).

    But for a GT2/3/RS blue would be my favorit. Maybe Oslo blue because this would be very unique


    Re: Questions about Riviera Blue?

    Thanks! This color question is really killing me; I guess I'll take one in each color. Smiley

     Just don't order Blue Turquoise!  (We're trying to keep it rare!)

    Riviera blue looks fantastic on a GT3. I picked up mine two weeks ago. Mexico blue is also fine but compared to riviera blue rather boring.K1024_3 (132).JPG

    We need more blue P cars.

    Riviera and Mexico both look great on sporty models.

    I like Lapis on more conventional cars.

    Agree... and if you've seen Targa Tim's Blue (Aqua?) 2010 GT3 RS elsewhere, it's absolutely breathtaking :) Somewhere between Midnight, Lapis... and Maritime, Mexico, Riviera...
