    Azurro colour to sample

    Seen during Factory Collection at Stuttgart on 10th October

    Re: Azurro colour to sample

    rear shot, stunning colour

    Re: Azurro colour to sample

    Bi-colour leather to sample, same car

    Re: Azurro colour to sample

    Awwww..., too, too bad.

    The first time I went to Florida (college Spring break) I saw all these powder blue cars down there. The drivers were all senior citizens; ever since then that shade of blue makes me queasy.

    The interior is sooooo awful; I'm sorry. Shows EXACTLY what I don't like about it: it's a very very bizzy place. Too much trim, colors, shapes, textures, materials, lines buttons, patterns, stitches.

    Then again, if my buddy got that car and was extremely happy with it I would try real hard to change my opinion about the color.


    Re: Azurro colour to sample

    Isn't that the exact same car Jason took pics of a year or so ago, and since then Porsche have just retro-fitted an aerokit?!

    Perhaps it's just a shell and there is no engine in the back

    Old PCM so I assume it's a MY08 (or older)

    Re: Azurro colour to sample

    That aerokit cracks me up... just what the 911 needed: more weight over the rear!!

    Re: Azurro colour to sample

    I reckon it's more suited to the Boxster than a 911

    Re: Azurro colour to sample

    Paint is beautiful but not for this car, and a bit too girlish for me, thanks for pixs

    Re: Azurro colour to sample

    IMO this light colour just doesn't suit a mighty car like a Turbo But taste is totally subjective

    Re: Azurro colour to sample

    Is the 997S pic below the same exact color, just different lighting? What is the history of Azurro? I like it but agree not for the turbo.

    Re: Azurro colour to sample

    love the exterior... interior should just be black instead of this blue..

    The 997 cab in your picture is unlikely to be Azzuro as it was only available on the limited club coupes.

    It may be though, as the colour is prone to looking very different depending on lighting.

    It is originally a Ferrari colour.

    Re: Azurro colour to sample

    Azurro California Blue on my club coupe for comparison.

    Re: Azurro colour to sample

    With black wheels, much better

    Hadn't seen that site before - many thanks for the link..

    Re: Azurro colour to sample

    @Tim: your club coupe looks great - Azzuro Blue works on a Carrera S. IMHO it doesn't on a TT. Still, to each his own

    Re: Azurro colour to sample

    There has been a batch of Azurro-coloured 987s, a few of them are on sale here and here.

    Re: Azurro colour to sample

    The first car (the Turbo) is not Azurro. It's Fountain Blue. The other cars in the thread area Azurro, which as you can see is a significantly darker (more blue) color than Fountain Blue.

    Re: Azurro colour to sample

    Nice catch U Boat - now you mention it - that's right as far as I know. Atomic80 saw a heavily personalised Fountain Blue 997 during his visit to Stuttgart

    Re: Azurro colour to sample

    Best looking Turbo I've ever seen. Soooo much better than cobalt blue or even midnight.

    another name for fountain blue or a different colour?

    Different color than Fountain.  Horizon is more blue than Fountain.

    thanks for reply u boat!

    i was trying to make my mind between azzurro and fountain, and now have realised that there is also horizon in between, which is probably the best choice...

    all best,

    It was labelled as Azurro at the factory......SmileyBut artificial lighting can play havoc with colour reproduction....

    Looks really stunning on a Boxster, suits the car much more than on a 997, IMO. Smiley I would love to have it on my car.....
