    Pic of a meteor 997TT ?

    Not sure about my color choice anymore. Does someone have 997TT Pic which is for sure meteor ?

    Re: Pic of a meteor 997TT ?

    The new Meteor grey metallic won't be out until September builds.
    I still believe that all of the photos of grey 997GT3 and 997TT we have seen published are Slate grey metallic...unless someone has actually seen the specific color Meteor listed on a TT window sticker?

    Re: Pic of a meteor 997TT ?

    There has been some controversy about the pics I took yesterday. It is NOT slate grey, I can assure you. I've seen slate in real life and it's a lot darker than the 997TT I saw.

    So it's either seal grey or meteor grey. Didn't ask the dealer and there was no sticker on the car. If you really want to be sure I can give a call to the dealer for you. But that will be 15 cents.

    Here's teh thread were I posted all the pics: http://www.rennteam.com/showflat.php?Cat=0&Number=241848&page=0&fpart=1&vc=1

    Re: Pic of a meteor 997TT ?

    MUST BE METEOR. I HEARD SEAL GRAY IS NOT BEING OFFERED THIS YEAR IN THE 997tt

    Re: Pic of a meteor 997TT ?

    Yes, that is mg.

    Re: Pic of a meteor 997TT ?

    Thanks folks for your support. I think a have to check the color list again and rethink my choice.

    Re: Pic of a meteor 997TT ?

    I'll give a call to the dealer later today. I'll keep you posted.

    But hold on, I'm being stupid here, I'm talking to guys who have the cash to buy a turbo...that will be $4,000.

    What? you find taht expensive? It's just the same price as a euro delivery.

    Re: Pic of a meteor 997TT ?

    OK, I called the dealer and he told me it's SLATE GREY

    I've been wrong the all time. Sorry guys. These colors are so confusing.

    So to make sure everyone understandds, the pics I posted are all slate grey. Forget about what I said before. I guess the fact that the car was inside fooled me.

    Re: Pic of a meteor 997TT ?

    What did I tell you?
    But, Slate Grey looks pretty different threw different digital cameras! With some it looks more purple then it is in real life...

    Re: Pic of a meteor 997TT ?

    Appreciate your time. Many thanks.
    Can't send you the 4k, would have to sacrify some options ..

    I always thought that Slate looked more brown at low res than it does when photographed with a good, accurate digital camera.

    Thanks for checking, Amazon. I owe you a round of Duvel Belgian Ale next time I'm over at Grand'Place.

    You're welcome

    You've been in Belgium before?

    I guess you did because you know about us and our drinking habits.

    Too bad

    It worth a try

    Slate looks very different when the sun hits it. In the garage, it looked dull and a lot like seal grey. The first time I saw that color, I loved it, but now, I don't know what to think.

    Re: Pic of a meteor 997TT ?

    It's all a matter of taste. Personally, I think slate is stunning when clean, in natural sunlight. Don't care much what it looks like indoors. I ordered mine in slate.

    I've got Belgian secret police still looking for me.

    In another lifetime, back around 1990 while I was in college, I earned some extra income by exporting American muscle cars to the UK and some to the Continent...several times a year during school breaks, just 10 or 12 Corvettes/Trans-Am/Eldorado per year. At the time the U.S. dollar was even weaker than it is now, it was easy to take advantage of the lopsided currency ratio & more fun than a typical college job!.

    I used the port at Zeebrugge to ship several of the vehicles in. I spent some weeks in Brussels over the course of several years, beautiful country and great memories there but haven't been back since about 1992.

    Good news if Meteor turns out to be essentially a lighter version of Slate grey.

    1992? It has been almost 15 years! it's time to come back

    WHat a great college job you had back then. While most of us get a job at McDonnald or at starbucks, you got to do what you liked and make money at the same time I should come up with some job like yours while I'm still in college. Do you guys want a smart 1.0l 50bhp to replace your Z06? an with the currency working against me, it will be as expensive as a vette.

    Re: Pic of a meteor 997TT ?

    The color samples provided to dealers by Porsche show MG to be slightly lighter than slate, and also has no brown tint. It's a more pure gray.

    Re: Pic of a meteor 997TT ?

    Here is a Meteor shot for comparison. We've done a bit of Meteor production lately, and it is stunning in person.



    Color is more lively than Slate, with higher metallic flake content, and an overall lighter silver/grey tone in comparison to Slate.

    Eric: How do you think it will wear - hide defects, nicks and such? for example compared to Arctic Silver which hides everything.

    Re: Pic of a meteor 997TT ?

    Thanks Eric. It looks to me very similar to the stone grey they had in the late 1980s.

    Re: Pic of a meteor 997TT ?

    What interior with Meteor? I am thinking natural brown or cocoa. You guys?

    You know, you are allowed to choose a color I didn't mention too

    Re: Pic of a meteor 997TT ?

    Wow what a nice color.

    Sorry, I'm new at this, what does it mean that you're "done a bit of meteor production"? How can that be when Porsche isn't making them yet? Have you seen the REAL meteor grey on a car from Porsche?

    Thanks.
