    997 Turbo in Nordic Gold Metallic

    Hmm...

    Re: 997 Turbo in Nordic Gold Metallic

    As a comparison 997 Targa 4S in the same color...

    Re: 997 Turbo in Nordic Gold Metallic

    Looks quite nice! The polished wheels fit well to this color.

    Re: 997 Turbo in Nordic Gold Metallic

    I like it!

    I agree with you! Nordic Gold looks pretty good on 997 Turbo.
    BTW, Meteor is also my choice...

    Re: 997 Turbo in Nordic Gold Metallic

    not feeling that at all.

    Re: 997 Turbo in Nordic Gold Metallic

    In the UK trade we call that
    "Jewish Racing Gold "......Yuk !

    Re: 997 Turbo in Nordic Gold Metallic

    I don't think so.

    Re: 997 Turbo in Nordic Gold Metallic

    I see the plates, but I wonder what kind of depreciation you could expect in europe or in the US with such color.

    It has to be massive.

    That said, I respect his choice. To each is own. People tend to buy what porsche advertise. Now it seems white is in because the GT3 was presented to the public in white. It's os ridiculous. No one would have order a 996 turbo in white but suddenly everyone wants one.

    Re: 997 Turbo in Nordic Gold Metallic

    Any opinions on the old "Arena Red" with a black interior for a Turbo?

    Re: 997 Turbo in Nordic Gold Metallic

    Not subtle enough; too saturated. More of a slight champagne tint would be better. Used to be understatement was highly prized; now it's "flaunt it."

    How about this real goldplated mess (funny it says "schmuck..." on plate):

    Re: 997 Turbo in Nordic Gold Metallic

    Schmuckwelten is the annual goldsmiths jewellery exhibit held at Pforzheim in Germany. Germany is one of the worlds leaders in making gold jewellry.

    Schmuck = Jewellery in German.

    That's funny

    In Yiddish we call people like Chopper "shmucks"

    In college we used to call everybody we didn't like "schmucks." LOL. Funny!!! I thought that because it rhymed with the f word it was cool.

    Re: 997 Turbo in Nordic Gold Metallic

    If there wasn't bad taste, we would never be able to distinguish what good taste is!

    Re: 997 Turbo in Nordic Gold Metallic

    Looks close to burnt orange, now that would look good!!

    Re: 997 Turbo in Nordic Gold Metallic

    It reminds me of my Dad's BMW in 1977 the paint was called Topaz Brown.

    Very nice!

    We had a 633 csi in a very light green metallic (don't know the name), it actually fits perfect to the topaz brown of your Dad!


    Re: That's funny

    not for me.. dont like it that much

    Re: 997 Turbo in Nordic Gold Metallic

    Thanks Rossi. I found the pic on the net. My Dad's is the first 5 series that came out I believe. It was a 4 door 518i. And he still has it and babies it like it was brand new .

    Has probably around 60k original miles on it and has to be washed every weekend, all services have been documented he is very picky about his bimmer.

    I've been trying to get the car (as a collector item) but he always change the conversation .

    Re: 997 Turbo in Nordic Gold Metallic

    Stop with pics of the old Bimmers! I'm running out of Kleenex. Awgggh, I curse the day Chris Bangle was born.

    Yeah, those were the days...
    I really loved the 6series, perhaps this car even started my enthusiasm for sports cars.


    And just to make you cry again MMD...




    ... and to prove how right you are with your words.


    Re: 997 Turbo in Nordic Gold Metallic

    My Dad also owned nice BMW, 1981 M535i while he was working in Germany in Munich...

    LOL. Ahhhh Yes! 6 series was soooo niiiiice. Those were the days...Had my eyes on the gorgeous looking 635csi at one point but got an E30M3 insted (went small and cheap). Bronzit Beige; was a great color in those days. Shoulda got the 6.

    Re: 997 Turbo in Nordic Gold Metallic

    It wouldn't be my first choice, but I've never seen a 997 Turbo that I didn't like. I think Mexico Blue would look stunning.

    Re: 997 Turbo in Nordic Gold Metallic

    Reminds me of the saffron color of a Volvo C70 when it made its debut....

    To the best of my recollection it is a color special like the original Porsche speedyellow in 2000 ....

    Does not count for me ... i'm more traditional ...

    Re: 997 Turbo in Nordic Gold Metallic

    Sin,
    IMHO problem is that these days about 75% of all 997 Turbos are Black(Basalt or solid black)! About 15% is Silver(Arctic or GT) all other colors are in rest 10%...

    My personal favorites are GT Silver and Speed Yellow(for 997 Turbo coupe) but, I would like to see 997 Turbos is little bit more interesting colors...

    Zenith Blue Metallic is such a color IMO.
