    What color is this???

    Hello 911 fans!!!
    Help me please. This pics are from www.autozeitung.de

    I love this color, is this lapis blue or cobalt blue???

    Re: What color is this???

    Looks like Cobalt to me.

    Re: What color is this???

    another one

    Re: What color is this???

    Here is a picture from the Porsche.com website. Using build your own I made one using Colbalt Blue Metallic (a $3070 option). I think it looks like the color you are questioning.

    Lapis blue is much darker.

    Re: What color is this???

    Cobalt I believe.

    pjd,

    See the thread "Cobalt Blue." Here's a link to a 911 that is likely Lapis blue: www.excellence-mag.com/art1/art1p3.html or use the Porsche website's "Build-Your-Own-Porsche as suggested above.

    I think I'm going with Lapis blue with sand beige leather interior when I pick up my 997 Turbo S Cab!

    Re: What color is this???

    Thank`s for your help!!

    Re: De ja blue

    like Men007 said lapis blue looks much dark, but i like boot colors...

    Lapis blue with sand beige leather interior in 997 Turbo S Cab? Very cool!! Good choice

    Tank you all guys!!

    Re: De ja blue

    That definitely is cobalt blue Like has been said before lapis blue is much darker. The cobalt blue of Porsche's car configurator doesn't even come close to the real color. The configurator makes the color dull and displays a violet tone that cobalt doesn't have.

    Re: De ja blue

    This is Cobalt Blue:

    Re: De ja blue

    The first ones posted are not lapis but are not cobalt either.

    I think it's been modified by computer, so basically, there's no color like it. It's just like the slate/seal grey of the 997s pictured in the porsche brochure. It's not seal, it's not slate, it's what you get when you use a computer to make pics look better.

    Re: De ja blue

    The pics that i posted are more closer from cobalt blue. Maybe it`s like you said, probably they have been modified.

    I never saw one in cobalt blue in real... if it looks similar to the blue stratos from Audi then maybe i`ll bye one...

    Re: De ja blue

    I think that all pictures posted so far show cobalt blue cars. Apart from pictures being modified and the monitor used for viewing these little DigiCams don't get the colors right. Especially under different lighting conditions the color they capture varies heavily.
    I have appended an auction picture of a cobalt blue GT2. The color of that picture comes close to the cobalt blue 996 C4S that I have seen in flesh. For official Porsche pictures of a cobalt blue 996 TT cabriolet go to AMI motorshow Leipzig 2005

    Re: De ja blue

    Lapis blue looks like when your blue ball point pen leaks. It's darker than cobalt.

    Funny that "lapis" means pen (I think) in spanish.

    I'm not a "blue" fan, but that looks amazing, almost black

    Lapis 996TT Cab:

    Re: De ja blue

    That definitely is Lapis Blue. Cobalt is couple shades lighter, and cobalt would show much lighter than above pics in the sun.

    Re: What color is this???

    This guy looks pissed. Ya think it has anything to do with the DMV screwing up his personalized 'GO 911 S' license plates ?

    Re: What color is this???

    hahahaha stradale

    here it another picture of a cobalt blue 996 TT,

    Brian, you have a very nice looking car. I really like that first picture.... very nice neighbourhood too. The interior looks beige rather than grey though....

    You might be right, STRADALE! We don't have the possibility like in the US to have a real "indivdual" license-plate!

    If it wouldn't be your car I would say it's kind of black (basalt). That's what I like on the midnightblue color!

    Thanks Leong.
    It really is Stone Grey.
    I really like it because it is darker than any grey interior I have ever had in a car.
