A guy ordered a Miami Blue TTS and when it arrived, didn't take it as he hated the color in person. I have/had a sapphire blue Targa4GTS that I specc'd and it arrives/arrived this month and I backed out a couple of weeks ago for personal reasons. Not only that but to get it, they had to give up a TTS allocation to get the GTS as they didn't have one. Not defending anyone, just saying those things happen.

Mine is definitely bloated. But I'm ok with it It's my car (or will be), so why wouldn't I spec it how I want?

My 2 cents: All those considering Sport Classic Grey, I will warn you it is extremely similar to Chalk/Crayon Grey. Only difference is Chalk is slightly warmer tint (like Fashion Grey, but lighter) versus SCG which has a cooler tint.


Here is my SCG parked next to a Chalk 718 Cayman:


IMHO, not sure if it is worth the $12k PTS premium... When I ordered my PTS SCG 981 Spyder, Chalk/Crayon was not available, so it made sense for me. If Chalk was available back then, like it is now I don't think I would have specced SCG. Don't get me wrong, SCG a beautiful grey, but it's way too close to Chalk.

Chalk has nothing on Sport Classic Grey. Chalk = yuck.

Shhhh... you are foiling my plan to sway others from ordering it!

No in all seriousness, 95% of people that see the two colors in isolation would think they were the same thing.

Chalk looks good, but I think the warmer tone gives it a hint of old-man khaki pants color haha...

But I think it also is close to some military colors you might find on a jet, which is cool. Same for sport classic, so they're both nice.

I always knew something was wrong with California. . No wonder they charge such high ADM's on desirable cars.
iíd totally buy that car.

and, in reality, that is exactly what will happen. So it sits there a couple months, no big deal, and they could always ask for adm... nothing wrong w CA, that $h!t works, no one is a$$ed out, and everyone gets a car except the lame that passed on it to begin w. I honestly donít understand your perspective

i agree- itís not worth the extra 8k, but I didnít order mine in those colors

mostly I was just worried people wouldnít see it when driving and be more likely to hit me. Itís urban camo to me, when I see it going down the road, it just disappears... stealthy as hell tho

I ended up chalk as sport classic and fashion where too close to justify paying a PTS premium for either. Used the saved $ to do the interior.
