    did anyone order atlas grey? I am still looking for a picture of the FL with atlas but it seems nobody has received one yet.

    Here is my almost confirmed order (expected delivery feb'09), but 'might' change color to atlas grey... coming from a 997.1 meteor owner, thats as bold as I can go. I am not even sure

    XRP Wheel spacers 5mm
    446 Wheel centre set
    PDK transmission

    Rear section of center console in exterior color
    Floor mats with leather edging
    Heated seats + ventilated seats
    Electrically adjustable seats incl. driver memory function
    XSC Porsche crest embossed on head restraints
    482 Tyre Pressure Monitoring system (TPM)
    635 ParkAssist
    680 Bose Surround Sound-System
    672 Navigation module with hard disc drive (standard in our market)
    870 Universal audio interface (iPod)
    666 phone module with SAP
    Rear window wiper
    Cornering lights
    Sports Exhaust
    Door Entry guards in stainless steel
    Homelink
    PDK selector guard in leather

    any comments are welcome.

    Sounds like a very nice car. I prefer you initial choice, Meteor.

    Re: new order, Meteor or Atlas Grey..PICTURES PLS!

    Hi,

    OK - not exactly what you asked for, but - for what it's worth - here's a picture of my 997.1 in Atlas and 987 in Meteor.. I really liked the Atlas - shame it was a pricey option for the Boxster..

    Here's a comp:

    Re: new order, Meteor or Atlas Grey..PICTURES PLS!

    Atlas Grey:

    Re: new order, Meteor or Atlas Grey..PICTURES PLS!

    Atlas and Slate, YAY!!!!!

    Meteor BOO!!!!!

    My humble football season opinion...

    Re: new order, Meteor or Atlas Grey..PICTURES PLS!

    Slate or Meteor - its the only way mate!

    Re: new order, Meteor or Atlas Grey..PICTURES PLS!

    Thanks for all the comments. unfortunately Slate is no longer available for the 997.2, not even as a special color.

    Dave Gordon, MMD: thanks for the pics. its good to see the 2 colors together.

    It seems Atlas has more blue in it than grey? blue is surely quite prominent. am I right? or is that only under the sunlight?

    Re: new order, Meteor or Atlas Grey..PICTURES PLS!

    Just my opin but.....Atlas is not a "Grey". It is dark, if that's what you're after.
    With Seal & Slate gone, Meteor is what remains as a 'grey' albeit with some brown tint and more metalic fleck.

    Since that does not go great with black or stone (for a cab)....I just ordered another silver (GT silver).

    Re: new order, Meteor or Atlas Grey..PICTURES PLS!

    Both are nice, but I'm cheap so I'd go with Meteor ($710) over Atlas ($3140). Porsche's musical chair/marketing games pricing in moving colors from the "Metallic" to "Special Paint" category irks me a little. If I bought Atlas it would probably always kind of leave me with a feeling like I'd just been kicked in the balls.

    Re: new order, Meteor or Atlas Grey..PICTURES PLS!

    IMO, Atlas looks better.

    And congrats on that order. It's gonna be one darn good and desirable car.

    Re: new order, Meteor or Atlas Grey..PICTURES PLS!

    I took the liberty of adding some simple, basic, non-tricky color saturation to DaveGorgon's above pic. Original is a little washed out and possibly misleading:

    Re: new order, Meteor or Atlas Grey..PICTURES PLS!

    Atlas Grey!

    Re: new order, Meteor or Atlas Grey..PICTURES PLS!

    this turbo looks amazing!

    MMD, from what i am seeing, atlas is more of a greyish dark blue rather than a bluish dark grey!???

    Re: new order, Meteor or Atlas Grey..PICTURES PLS!

    Not sure C2N. I haven't seen one in reality. FWIW, Guys here say AG is one of those strange colors which reacts to ambient light more than other colors.


    Re: new order, Meteor or Atlas Grey..PICTURES PLS!

    Different ambient light:

    Re: new order, Meteor or Atlas Grey..PICTURES PLS!

    diff amb light:

    Re: new order, Meteor or Atlas Grey..PICTURES PLS!

    Heh, thanks MMD - was going to mention apologies for the washed-out photo Don't know why it did that - it's quite a decent camera.. There's some better photos on the same site, too, if you look around..

    Atlas depends a lot on the light - in bright sunlight the blue hues come out and it looks almost like a midnight blue. Otherwise it looks like a kind of dark gunmetal.

    There seems to be a little brown/yellow in Meteor, which you don't really notice until you contrast against slate or GT, or the very slight blue in Seal.

    Given the choice, I'd go for Atlas..

    Cheers,
    Dave

    Re: new order, Meteor or Atlas Grey..PICTURES PLS!

    great. thanks shogun

    Re: new order, Meteor or Atlas Grey..PICTURES PLS!

    what if someone wants to order slate grey again?
    would there be a premium for it, or is it plain impossible?
    not that i would pay a premium and get kicked in the *&^&*.

    Check Porsche Car configurator?

    There's an 997.2 Order Guide floating around on the board(s) somewhere... .



    Re: new order, Meteor or Atlas Grey..PICTURES PLS!

    Yeah... bummer that Slate grey is cancelled from the configurator. Was wondering if they will still take special orders.

    Re: new order, Meteor or Atlas Grey..PICTURES PLS!

    @MMD: that picture you posted of the atlas grey 997TT is simply stunning. OMG! I'm speechless. It just looks perfect

    Re: new order, Meteor or Atlas Grey..PICTURES PLS!

    I think a good description of atlas grey is the it resembles the color of a pencil lead (ie. sort of graphite). There is defintiley some blue in it but very little. It is a subtle color for sure. Very nice.

    Agree that the TT in Atlas above looks hottt!

    Re: new order, Meteor or Atlas Grey..PICTURES PLS!

    Atlas!

    It's an amazing color that has more than one personality. Anytime i get comments on my 987S its not about the car it's about the color.

    Re: new order, Meteor or Atlas Grey..PICTURES PLS!

    Thanks for everyone who posted pictures of the atlas here. I have a few days left to decide between Meteor and Atlas, though they are both totally different i know. Atlas is a bold decision for me since i just let go of my beloved meteor 997.1. It is growing on me!

    HAHA! Great!!! I'm glad my "work" here (as purveyor of pics) has positive effects!



    BTW, just re-checked, that's the only one like that I have.

    Re: new order, Meteor or Atlas Grey..PICTURES PLS!

    ok I have finally concluded on Atlas Grey instead of Meteor. Order going through this week delivery feb09.
    It was a tough choice for me since i like both, but I based my decision for the sake of change since my 997.1 was meteor..and I would like to go darker.

    My final options are...

    Atlas grey metallic paint
    Terracotta leather interior
    Carrera II wheels
    XRP Wheel spacers 5mm
    446 Wheel centre set
    PDK transmission
    640 Pack Sport Chrono Plus
    Rear section of center console in exterior color
    Floor mats with leather edging
    Heated seats + ventilated seats
    Electrically adjustable seats incl. driver memory function
    XSC Porsche crest embossed on head restraints
    482 Tyre Pressure Monitoring system (TPM)
    635 ParkAssist
    680 Bose Surround Sound-System
    672 Navigation module with hard disc drive (standard in our market)
    870 Universal audio interface (iPod)
    666 phone module with SAP
    Rear window wiper
    Cornering lights
    Sports Exhaust
    Door Entry guards in stainless steel
