    Mexico Blue

    I was reading a post in the Cayman forum and saw mention of Mexico Blue, a color applied to the last of the 993 line. Does anyone have pics of a 911 in Mexico Blue?

    Re: Mexico Blue

    I think Mexico Blue was a factory color in 1974, so it wouldn't have been a normal color for a 993, right?
    Here is an example from this site: http://www.mindspring.com/~bidslam/ss%20icons/1974_911S.htm



    Re: Mexico Blue

    Thanks. That's really easy on the eye, don't you think? I think you are right; it was not a factory color for the 993, but I think I read that the last 993 made was in this color.

    Re: Mexico Blue

    I think Mexico is very similar to Riviera ? Here's a Ruf in Mexico -

    Re: Mexico Blue

    Hey, that's nice too. It looks a little darker than Mexico Blue. Any other similar shades of blue? I wonder what a GT3 would look like in a blue like this -- Mexico or Riviera. Thanks for the photos, guys.

    Re: Mexico Blue

    Guys
    Color is a very personal thing....but this doesn't look like Mexico or Riviera....it looks like SMURF

    Re: Mexico Blue

    Pictures are not a good source for judging these colors. I ordered both riviera blue and mexico blue samples from paintscratch.com and they are significantly different. If your check the formulas from Glasurit they also reveal differences. In bright sunlight riviera is still somewhat lighter than mexico but one can appreciate some similarity. In dimmer light mexico is much darker than riviera. The decision to add an option costing $4315 USD should be made carefully. Naturally my major concern is that the car look as I envision it, the vox populi jeers notwithstanding.

    Re: Mexico Blue

    Hey! It looks good on a Smurf too. You know, I read that the producers of the Smurfs sampled tens of thousands of colors before they settled on that exact shade. Well, it's a done deal. My next Porsche will be Smurf Blue.

    Re: Mexico Blue

    Riviera is nice!

    Correction: this is Smurf blue. I thought it looked a little more like M&M's blue but now I see that it's definitely more Smurfy!

    Re: Mexico Blue

    Too shocking Blue? Again, it depends on where you live, climate, culture etc. Picking your favorite color definitely makes sense when you buy a minivan or equivalent.

    Deciding on a color for a Porsche is more complicated.

    Re: Mexico Blue

    Sorry guys...but that color is disgusting....

    Re: Mexico Blue

    If you think that's disgusting, you've never seen a chrome orange Elise, or a baby poop green VW bug...or any of these bright gold lifestyle colors we're seeing on Acuras and PT Cruisers.

    Re: Mexico Blue

    I really like the Mexico Blue Ruf posted by Skinny.

    That background looks more like Germany than Mexico.
