    Slate Grey Vs. Atlas Grey

    Whats the difference and is slate much nicer? Slate by the way, is 2,500$ more expensive so it doesnt seem worth it to me but let me knwo what you think. These colors are to go with sand beige/black inteior(two tone).

    Re: Slate Grey Vs. Atlas Grey

    Atlas gray has bluish tint. Some say slate has a brownish tint. Atlas seems darker. Atlas would go well with your interior choice. Mine is slate/stone. Either would work. Good luck.

    Re: Slate Grey Vs. Atlas Grey

    Do a search for posts by Fanch on the 997 board. The photos of his slate grey 997S are quite an accurate representation of the colour. Low res photos tend to overstate the brown hint, in my experience.

    It sure does! Really not that much brown in the colour at all. If I was wanting a grey car, I'd go with Slate. If I wanted a black car, I'd consider Atlas.

    Re: Slate Grey Vs. Atlas Grey

    Looks great with the yellow PCCB's

    Re: Slate Grey Vs. Atlas Grey

    i am also considering between the two. i know that the PCCB will look better with the atlas but i just got the andorite grey on the new S500 which is a little lighter but with a bluish tint.

    what i want to ask is will this combo (slate, Blk/Teracotta, PCCB) look good.

    Re: Slate Grey Vs. Atlas Grey

    To me Atlas is like a pearl black. If that makes any sense...

    Re: Slate Grey Vs. Atlas Grey

    I have seen Atlas in person and I was sold on this color.

    Re: Slate Grey Vs. Atlas Grey

    I was in the same boat but as the Slate was a special paint choice, couldn't cought up extra $$$, I chose the Atlas sight unseen. I am sure glad I picked it for my car because every comment I get on the beauty has been on the paint. Atlas is whatever color you want it to be in a way pending light conditions...it's black, dark blue or dark grey.

    Re: Slate Grey Vs. Atlas Grey

    Here you go, mine is Slate Grey Metallic...


    Re: Slate Grey Vs. Atlas Grey

    I like both colors but if I had to choose it would be Atlas.

    I like it too .

    Re: Slate Grey Vs. Atlas Grey

    as mentioned the atlas is a mystery color as depends on the amount of light available, you can percieve it to be different colors.

    what do you guys think of the atlas with black/teracotta and PCCB. do you think the bluish tint would match with the teracotta interior. i know black with the this interior looks nice but i wanted to know if it will also suit the atlas. thanks

    Re: Slate Grey Vs. Atlas Grey

    Slate is of course a great looking color, you can't go wrong with it, but after seeing both in person, I personally think Atlas is the best looking metallic color available for the 997 Trubo, color is subjective, but Atlas fits the new Turbo perfectly, so much better than it did the 996 Turbo, anyone contemplating Atlas, that is IMO the best color on these cars.

    Re: Slate Grey Vs. Atlas Grey

    Shaika. IMO nothing really goes with teracotta but the best chance is black or white exterior. Good thig we all have different tastes. The beige or natural brown would go well with atlas as would black or black/stone. Good luck with your choice. Atlas is a fine choice but I went with slate/stone and PCCBs.

    Only you can say if the slate grey is nicer and worth the extra 2500.00. If cost is an issue go Atlas and use the 2500 elsewhere.

    Re: Slate Grey Vs. Atlas Grey

    I'm a "less is more" person and because this car has got so many holes, vents, flares, wings, the darker the colors seem better to me; you tend to see less bizziness with them. So IMHO, Atlas is one of the two best colors, Slate Grey being the other one.

    I'd get a black interior though, it's a very bizzy look in there for a minimalist.
