That would explain why he thought he was looking at 911s at the Ford dealership.

As I said earlier - I feel the same way. There was no emotion for me when I saw it in Sapphire. I soooo wanted to love it but it didn't work for me.

However, it is a beautiful color and I can totally see why some people love it. I just went head over heels for GT silver. And in about three weeks, it will be in my hot little hands!!

In my opinion, aqua blue is much nicer. I probably would have ordered that color if it were available.

There was an AB Boxster sitting next to the SB 991 I looked at. Totally agree. I LOVED Aqua Blue and side by side, the difference was significant.

I think the Sapphire looks really good on the GT3. Still, I would not order any blue on mine but I still love the way it looks. I just have other personal preferences that I did or would do next go around.

But - I will still stand by my initial statement that the 991 GT3 looks good in almost any color and I mean in pictures and live. So, I do not think any one will go wrong with any color choice.

But - the only color that still looks good dirty is GR. Had it on my Turbo a little dirty still looked fine. My white cars, never look good a little dirty

If PTS were not such a hassle I would have done Cobalt blue. With siver wheels, of course.

Went to Champion Porsche today and saw 991S with Aerokit in Sapphire. Car is absolutely stunning. Couldn't be more pleased with my decision to go blue!

SO true......BUT....these cars are not really of the same category. Just comparing MSRP shows us that. What is amazing is the fact that Porsche's 911 consistently over performs for what it is. Very efficient German driving machine, able to be driven daily and tracked on the weekend. Not a lot of Ferraris on the track. If Porsche really wanted to compete head-to-head with Ferrari and Lambo and McClaren they could have, if they positioned the Cayman above the 911 for development. They chose to leave the 911 on top.
