    Finally back and getting around to posting some pics of the blue turquoise car.

    Re: Blue Pics

    Very nice, though I have to ask about the front plate--it's not legit is it?

    I ask because I picked up my Volvo in Sweden and they tag the visitors with red plates, presumably to alert the locals of a potentially erratic tourist. Surely the Germans need notice as well?

    Re: Blue Pics

    Yeah, that's a different plate than the 1st pics- isn't it. I like it much better than the stubby US spec.

    Great color combo Dan!

    Re: Blue Pics

    really cool Dan...more pics and with top up too.


    Re: Blue Pics

    More more! Have any of yourself in the alps??? Glad to see you made it back to the factory, safe and sound!

    Re: Blue Pics

    That is some wild blue....baby
    happy to see a somewhat neutral interior going on there.
    Enjoy summer congrats..coppers (police) will see you coming, be careful

    Re: Blue Pics

    Here's a few in the alps! Dan

    Re: Blue Pics

    Re: Blue Pics

    gotta love the snow sheds...

    Re: Blue Pics

    Great pics..

    You must of enjoyed your travel a lot.

    I travel through the Simplon pass about 8 times a year... Great drive!! And the sound of the PSE in the snow sheds is just great

    Re: Blue Pics

    Simplon. Yes,--truly great with the PSE!

    Re: Blue Pics

    Then (1977)...

    Re: Blue Pics

    ...now--2006

    Re: Blue Pics

    Awesome pics Dan! I love the comparison of 1977/2006... the car is stunning, and so is the Matterhorn... majestic!

    Re: Blue Pics

    Splendid story ! Thanks for sharing.

    Re: Blue Pics

    Very nice photos Dan - thanks for sharing.

    I especially like the mountain views. Simply awe-inspiring!

    I love the way your turquoise blends with the dark blue roof colour you've picked. Very tasteful blend.

    Yes, I like the way you've retraced your steps (1977 and 2006). It's the little sentimental things we do that often mean the most.

    Re: Blue Pics

    Fantastic Dan! Thanks for the pics in the alps. Always a great backdrop! Like the "Then and Now" pic too!

    Re: Blue Pics

    WOW
    THANKS for the pics Dan

    Re: Blue Pics

    Man, that is a beautiful car! Although i just picked up my new C2S coupe 2 weeks ago, my dealer wants me to decide on a color for the 997TT - and after seeing yours I'm thinking hard about spec'ing a custom color. I'm very partial to the lighter non-metallic shades that VW and Audi are currently using - and I think your car is natural brown, right?

    ...just gorgeous!

    Re: Blue Pics

    WoW, congrats for that perfect combination, it is absolutely stunning, love that exterior colour, and those wheels.....

    I think those pics dont do justice the beauty of the car

    I really love that comparison pic

    Re: Blue Pics

    Beautiful, the more I see it the more I like it. You picked out the perfect wheels for that combo. I love the picture overlooking the top of the car. Enjoy

    Re: Blue Pics

    My wife wants your colour! I am stuffed! No offense to the colour but it won't suit me! But this could mean we get two P cars : )

    My last two cars have been Basalt and before that was midnight blue before that I was on Artic Silver!

    What is the exact colour? Or is it match to sample....

    Also, what colour is the top? Black or blue?

    Re: Blue Pics

    The natural brown leather is soft, feels great, and significantly more durable than I thought it would be. This color was a standard color for the 993 autos in 1996 and 1997, although I believe they only imported (to the USA) about 12 in this color. I learned subsequently that Jerry Seinfeld has a 993 Turbo S this color that he has up for sale.

    Re: Blue Pics

    Don,
    Nice.
    Hey question - With the optional leather seat backs on the sport/adaptive seats is that a stitch that runs along the whole back of the seat? Is there anyway you could take some close up pics?

    Will check that out closer and post. As a $1600 plus option most just either paint the rears to match the exterior color or go with the plastic stuff.
