    Cobalt blue

    I decided I couldn't wait any longer for a cab, and that I had to get my 997 now ! However, I also realized that I couldn't even wait to customize a C2S, so I called my dealer last Monday to buy the Arctic Silver 997S he had in stock. When I got there to sign the papers on Saturday I discovered an S in Cobalt Blue that I just had to have.
    I had to wait a few more days to take delivery as I wanted some extras added in, but boy I'm glad I didn't wait for the cab - driving the 997S has been nothing short of spectacular on the country roads here in upstate New York.

    All I can say is that there's nothing like it !

    Congrats! Wait til you've broken it in and really get on it. The car really comes alive at over 4K RPM's. Get yourself a radar detector

    Re: Cobalt blue

    Yep, I'm ignoring the break-in and have hit 6K. One of the extras was a radar detector.

    Re: Cobalt blue

    Congrats and you're right: the 997 loves little country roads. There are not many cars which would be able to follow you.

    Re: Cobalt blue

    Congrats Beautiful car...

    Re: Cobalt blue

    Wow, very very cool. Glad to see you pick cobalt blue (I'm getting a little tired of Silver/black). That's the first time I've seen cobalt on a 997 and I think it looks really great

    Nice poses by the way

    Re: Cobalt blue

    Hey congratulations. Nice looking car

    BTW, what part of upstate new york is this?

    Re: Cobalt blue

    i can tell you love blue... haha

    didn't know they came in cobalt. definitely a first!

    congrats!

    Re: Cobalt blue

    You look very happy
    Congrats

    Re: Cobalt blue

    Awesome! I was really torn between cobalt blue and GT silver. I ended up ordering GT silver, but your cobalt blue 997S is awesome!

    Re: Cobalt blue

    I like the color of the lights and side marker contrasting with the cobalt. Very Nice. Great decision.

    Two of my B-I rules I don't ignore. Except just a few times by "accident" don't exceed the reccommeded upper RPM limit. Don't punch the throttle or put it to the floor. Other than that drive it hard and shift alot to vary engine speed.

    Just my $.02. Good Luck Dubliner! ENJOY!!!!

    Re: Cobalt blue

    Thanks guys.
    SoCal, it's Dutchess County. Some awesome roads here and as you go further north - instead of only having fun by trying to do 90+ on highways, you can legally do 50-60 on twisty roads with no houses or other traffic and have a glorious time on switchbacks and chicanes.

    I'm not sure why he's wearing brown belt and shoes, they should be black for those photos.

    Just trying to be different I guess.

    Re: Cobalt blue

    Congratulations...wow how good does colbat blue look
    I've changed colours 3 times and now after seeing your car i'm thinking again....
    Enjoy and thanks for the pics

    Re: Cobalt blue

    I have a 328ci year 2000 with Topaz Blue exterior. It looks very similar to Cobalt Blue. I think the color goes well on an angular shaped aggressive looking coupe like the 3-series, but on the Porsche it looks kind of cartoonish, sort of like a blue matchbox car I had when I was a kid. Carrera's are curvy and elegant, dare I say a bit feminie? I think Porsches, especially Carrera's need an aggressive color that stands out like Black, Red, Yellow, Silver, or White.

    Or maybe I'm just sick and tired of blue cars because most of my previous cars were some shade of blue

    Choosing color has always been the hardest decision for me when buying a car. But in the end its always what you like the best and what makes you happy.
