    meteor grey metallic

    For those interested in Meteor grey metallic, I have seen the color chit in the new Turbo sales book. It is slightly lighter than slate grey metallic, and has less blue than seal grey metallic.

    When I asked Porsche officials at Geneva if the color were the same as the older meteor grey metallic, they said absolutely not. It is a new color, that has been thoroughly tested. But it is similar to the old color, just as the new Marine Blue metallic (introduced with the Cayenne Turbo S) is similar to the old Iris blue.

    I like the Meteor color, and currently plan to order it on my new 997TT with either a natural brown or natural grey interior.

    Re: meteor grey metallic

    Re: meteor grey metallic

    This is terrific--thanks! Looks like you borrowed Ferrari's bordeaux interior, which would look stunning with meteor grey.

    Re: meteor grey metallic

    Wonderbar, this is the meteor grey with terracotta interior, like darius likes it.

    Re: meteor grey metallic

    This one may be better looking than GT silver or Cobalt blue for me. I am glad we have more choices now.

    In the same vein, which " old Iris Blue" are you referring to ? The mid 80s light " baby blue " metallic or the early/mid 90s medium dark purplish blue metallic ? ( I don't understand at all Porsche's reuse of color names for different looking colors . I guess their marketing team members are too lazy to earn their pay .)

    Re: meteor grey metallic

    I don't know. The Porsche official was comparing Iris blue to the new Marine blue on the Cayenne Turbo S, which was on the floor at the Geneva show. The Marine blue looks more purple/medium blue to me.

    I agree with you that the use of the same name--meteor grey--is confusing regardless, even if the shade is slightly different.

    From the chit in the Turbo sales book, meteor is slightly lighter than slate. I am interested in meteor, but want to see how I feel about a grey car in the Washington DC summers before I place my order in October. I have a midnight blue 2001 TT which looks and feels hot in the summer (but wonderful in the shade, and on cooler days). Ah, decisions....

    Re: meteor grey metallic

    Re: meteor grey metallic

    Re: meteor grey metallic

    Thanks for posting. Looks great.

    Re: meteor grey metallic

    Anybody has a pic of a Terracotta and is it red or brown in confuesd

    Re: meteor grey metallic

    It is more like... pink gone wrong

    Re: meteor grey metallic

    Many people seem to be enamored with cocca or terracotta interiors for grey exteriors i.e. seal, meteor, atlas etc. I suspect that some feel this way because of the lack of a genuine complimentary color available from Porsche. For all the greys they sell, there should be a burgandy, merlot, or even some red offered. How may green and blue interiors do they sell. They could make room for another color. I guess it's a good thing everyone has different taste. It's still America.

    Re: meteor grey metallic

    Indeed, one day those coccoa and terracotta interiors will feel just as fresh and exotic as these green and blue interiors. As you say, everyone has different taste...

    Re: meteor grey metallic

    A lovely bi-colour, unfortunately it is not in the Porsche car configurator...

    Re: meteor grey metallic

    OK Anybody has a pic of terracotta interior

    Re: meteor grey metallic

    Those colors above are horrendous. The best interior colors for grey are black or dark burgundy.
