    Dark Blue Metallic Carrera 4S

    After two months of waiting and still no news on the build date for my 'Riviera Blue' 981 Boxster I decided to look for alternatives. Surprisingly this did not take a long time to resolve Smiley

    I am now the proud owner of a 'Dark Blue Metallic' 991 Carrera 4S with PDK, -20mm Sport PASM, PSE, PTV Plus, dynamic engine mounts, SportDesign GT3'esque front spoiler, satin platinum wheels, etc, etc, etc. Fully loaded interior with all the brushed aluminium and painted options that I would never spec on a new car myself, because I find them a waste of money. Now I got them for free, so to speak.

    Dark blue metallic with satin platinum wheels is a great combination. The SportDesign front makes the car look like a GT3 without the rear wing. Low and sleek with a wide a** and aggressive face. Smiley

    Here are a few crappy iPhone pics.

    Very nice, congrats !!!!

    Happy Driving

    Re: Dark Blue Metallic Carrera 4S

    That is without a doubt one of the nicest 911 I've seen. The wheels are a bit dark in combo with the dark blue paint but in the sunlight I bet it's going to look very very impressive. 


    Re: Dark Blue Metallic Carrera 4S

    Congratulations! Nice color. I would love to see some interior pictures (with the alu bits you mention).

     


    Re: Dark Blue Metallic Carrera 4S

    Congratulations.  I was in the same situation as yourself. I had waited since 6/13 for blutorange/tangerine to be approved and it was turned down.  Fortunately for us we could satisfy our Porsche urge in the local showroom!!  I really like the look of the 991 C4S.  Beautiful car!

    You spend way to much time at dealers, internet forums and / or reading car mags !!...

    CONGRATULATIONS !!! kiss

    (Though, this decision may serve as an interesting new thread "Why I decided to go for a AWD instead of a RWD 991" - since I swapped from AWD to RWD before....)

    Congratulations! Our 987 is in Dark Blue Metallic. Very beautiful and warm colour when taken care of and when clean.

    Not the most practical colour, however. But who cares, your car looks fantastic and with the right spec.

    Enjoy at your nearest Alpine Pass, very soon Smiley

    Re: Dark Blue Metallic Carrera 4S

    Gorgeous bluelines! I definately like that better than a Boxster! angel

    May I suggest the fitment of a subtle spacer, the broad hips can use them! smiley

    that looks very classy .. just lovely.

    post some interior pics too .. always good to see some aluminium trim 


    Re: Dark Blue Metallic Carrera 4S

    Thank you all for the kind words! wink

    @SuzyF I actually thought you might like it and hence I acted swiftly! angryindecision

    @Enmanuel It does look a darker on the iphone photos than real life in the show room. As you say, in sunlight it should look very nice... I assume. indecision

    @DaveC Yes, the 991 4S shape is beautiful. Especially with the SportDesign front that you have too. kiss

    @BjoernB Haha, yes. We all seem to sneak around at the same dealer. We could have a RT Swiss Faction meet there

    LOL! They had a couple of nice vehicles there.... Yours (which I really liked), the white C4S with the blacked out headlights (didn't have all the options I like), the new black C4S with ducktail (looked very nuce, but I don't want black) and a very beautiful white Continental GTC (yes I know... It's not a Porsche but I adore that car!). This all distracted me so much, that i actully forgot that I was there to pick up some accessoiries for my Audi, next door Smiley Smiley

    The new satin platinum colour for Porsche wheels really looks good in combo with dark colour cars.

    Re: Dark Blue Metallic Carrera 4S

    Dark blue metallic fits the 991 perfectly IMO (and your new ride fits your nick perfectly BTW). kiss

    Congrats bluelines, really beautiful car, satin platinum wheels look gorgeous and just the right amount of lettering at the rear.

    Re: Dark Blue Metallic Carrera 4S

    radically nice, of course i'm biased with a triple blue, actually quadriple blue if you count the window tint.  the dark blue is my fav.  great car you have!!!

    Re: Dark Blue Metallic Carrera 4S

    Thanks again everyone! wink

    @d997h Yes, the RWD to AWD deserves an explanation. In short, the 991 AWD felt like a huge improvement over the 997.1 AWD. Plus I like the wider a** and red stripe on the 4S indecision Evo's Henry Catchpole preferred the 991 4S steering feel over the S and that made me curious to try AWD.

    @Rossi Good spot on the nick indecision Did not think about that. It is taken from the Massive Attack debut album.

    @KMM and @sfo I only have two low quality pics of the interior and you can hardly see the brushed aluminium and painted parts in these. I will take better pics once the car is delivered.

    Man, how would some orange stripes enhance the width of your car? Ok, poor attempt of a joke...so let's wait for some real action in the summer (...hopefully...).... !! Now, enjoy the bad driving conditions with your all-day-weapon ! Smiley
