    Blue Is the Next Car Color

    PPG and DuPont have announced the color BLUE, and variants of Blue, will be the next car color. It is now appearing in more fashion and home appliances. Link: http://www.startribune.com/business/3106...:aU7EaDiaMDCiUT

    Re: Blue Is the Next Car Color

    LOL x 1000. Biiiiig mistake but people don't think things thru.

    A neighbor at my friends house has a PITA Tarp-blue-colored truck which, despite having a several-car garage, he insists on parking outdoors. The house is very nice but has a "blue tarp" in the front in the form of a blue truck everyday!

    People are sooooooooo blind about how sh*tty these odd bright colors look in front of their houses and along the streets in their neighborhoods.

    Blue is the new EYESORE for neighborhoods.

    I always choose the colors of my cars with consideration of what it looks like in front of the house. Therefore I always get natural "blend-in" colors.

    If I were to get a _RED_ or BLUE Minivan or Ferrari it would NEVER be parked in front of the house: always in garage.

    PPG and DuPont should be ashamed of their little "junk up people's lives" marketing promotion blue: one _NASTY_ tarp-related color.

    Here's pics of your new neighbors' __blue__ love affair: Too bad!

    Notice how well it "fits" with the Environment!? LOLOLOL!

    I guess I was 3 years ahead of the curve


    Re: Blue Is the Next Car Color

    WOW! Niiiiiice. I can imagine it would be a joy and a pleasure to take that car around during sunrise and sunset and get some mind-altering pictures of that blue. Get some other subtle colors in there from the ambient light! YEAH!

    Problem is in broad daylight it gets washed out; but so does silver... .

    Re: Blue Is the Next Car Color

    Here's niiiiiice blue. Belongs to one of our Buddies here at Rennteam

    Paul- I've always loved the color on the Club Coupe. I wonder how much longer it will be embargoed from the Paint to Sample list?

    Re: Blue Is the Next Car Color

    I have been in style for a long time, with 2 blue Porsches and a blue house...

    Re: Blue Is the Next Car Color

    yes i own a cobalt blue, and was thinking probably my next car will be blue again...

    I saw the new Aqua Blue on a 997.2 and it is very nice (similar to Cobalt, but a little more subtle).

    Re: Blue Is the Next Car Color

    Ive seen the new aqua blue also, on an S cab, and it looks sweet. A lot like my lapis blue but brighter.

    Re: Blue Is the Next Car Color

    I don't want to lay it on too thick, but the perhaps the popularity of blue is a subconscious reaction to the tough times the economy is in right now

    These things are always cyclical and reflect the times heh.

    It was available as a paint to sample option for 2007 MY (it was only exclusive to the Club Coupe for MY 2006)--is it not available at the moment?

    And if you've never seen Azurro California Blue in person, it is amazing. Photos do not do it justice.

    I haven't checked, but assumed it was still excluded. It's certainly a winner

    Re: Blue Is the Next Car Color

    Good choice

    Re: Blue Is the Next Car Color

    I guess that I'm a wee bit biased too, but I think blue looks pretty good........

    I try to set trends!
