    the new Ruby Red on a 997

    looks great. Actually, it looks a bit like that F599 color. It's a lot better than arena red.

    Great color

    Does look nice. Wonder what it would look like with cream leather interior.

    Re: the new Ruby Red on a 997

    Arena Red is the best color for a Porsche, 993 that is. Ruby Red seems very fitting for the 997.

    I was thinking the same exact thing. Ruby Red looks great but from the pics Stone Grey doesn't seem to go well with it.

    Re: the new Ruby Red on a 997

    My dealer has a T4S in Ruby Red with Sand Beige interior. Looks the dog's boll*cks.

    Re: the new Ruby Red on a 997

    Why? What's wrong with "traditional" colors which compliment the sculptural qualities of the car?

    This looks like a favorite color someone would get for their family minivan.

    No big deal: people should still get what they like and enjoy.

    Of course the city or region where you drive has something to do with it too. Red _Porsches_ in a small town would be a disaster, red in SoCal makes perfect sense.


    Re: the new Ruby Red on a 997

    Thanks amazon for posting these pics!

    I was really looking forward to see ruby red on a real car and not in the configurator. I think it's a great color for the 911, not always the same as all those silver-grey-shades but yet decent enough and not as bright as red or yellow.
    But I think in reality it doesn't look as orangish as in the pics, also telling from the sample I've seen at my dealer...

    Re: the new Ruby Red on a 997

    A fabulous colour, I've seen it on a new 911 at my dealer, unfortunately didn't have a camera with me. These photographs have ben taken in the showroom under artificial light and don't do the colour justice. For me, ruby red, sand beige leather with centre console in either leather or exterior colour.

    thanks for posting. it's nice to see something other than silver!!

    Re: the new Ruby Red on a 997

    It looks like coral on a 928. Nice.

    Re: the new Ruby Red on a 997

    Beautiful color, although I agree with others that a cream or charcoal interior would suit it better...

    MMD, where's your soul brother?? Are all your underwear white??

    Re: the new Ruby Red on a 997

    uaaaahhhh... dont like it at all

    Re: the new Ruby Red on a 997

    While I too want to see more than just silver, grey and black Porsches on the road, I'm afraid this colour just doesn't appeal to me

    Re: the new Ruby Red on a 997

    Not seen it in the 'flesh' yet.. so will reserve judgement.

    Anyone got side-by-side photos Ruby with Guards?

    Agreed Here's a photo of our cobalt Boxster awaiting collection at Porsche. A splash of colour amongst the sea of monochrome white, silver, grey and black.

    Actually I'm just jealous - there were at least three GT3s and a couple of turbos there

    Re: the new Ruby Red on a 997

    Lovely photo DC

    That new car collection hall is a special place - it brings back special memories for me.

    It's a place which, if you are there, you have a big reason to be smiling

    Re: the new Ruby Red on a 997

    Nice colour

    Re: the new Ruby Red on a 997

    I like it.

    It was a special day for us, too We were surrounded by turbo's and GT3'S that day so we were very much the poor relation
