    Very, very nearly went with that combination, still not entirely sure that I shouldn't have. The salesman, the used car buyer and the dealer principle at my OPC all advised against it, which is why I finally decided on ocean blue.

    They also advised against guards red with sand beige which I think looks superb, even better on the Cayman than a Boxster.

    Cobalt and sand sounds like a very hot combination to me. Guards and sand is another great combination and, I think, fairly well accepted here in the US. (I had a 968 cab in Guards/Sand that always turned heads.) Unless you totally have a focus on resale, ignore the advice of the dealers and salespeople. I've found that they're often wrong. If their taste was that good, they'd be designing cars, not selling them.

    Unless of course you are focused on resale value in which case I would suggest silver/gray/black exterior with a grey/black interior. Because thats all that most people like nowadays.

    You are absolutely right of course, but I was concerned that cobalt blue wasn't quite strong enough to contrast well with sand beige, unlike midnight blue which makes a fabulous combination. We had ocean blue with the last Boxster and we really loved it, a real classy colour, and it will look even better with the aluminium look centre console we've ordered. If I'd had a Cayman, and it was a close call, I would defintely have gone for guards red / sand beige.

    I agree. Everyone seems to be choosing the same color cars these days and the combos you mention seem to be the favorites among dealers for their on-the-lot cars. After performance, I think one of the best things about Porsche is that you can configure your vehicle as you want, including colors. You don't have to settle for the limited number of canned combinations that other manufacturers tell us we want.
