I like the Miami blue but when you see it next to Rivera or Mexico it just doesn't hold a stick to those two. That being said it's my first choice or the available .2 colors. I'm hoping, like everyone else to win that pts lottery. Then it will be a harder decision.

Miami looks good (to me) with contrasting black elements. May not be the best color for a GT3, but looks good on RS and Turbo, especially with a black aerokit.
Contrasting elements do make Miami look better.

Here are are some shots of a non-GT3 in the wild. Not quite blue, not quite green. And a headache to photograph properly.

Crude shot under fluorescent lighting.
Daylight shot.

Here is an RS I saw with my UV for comparison. Pic is darker/muddier than real life. I liked it a lot in person and didn't think I would.

What are your guys thoughts on Miami Blue on the .2?
i think it will be a lot less popular than many are anticipating on here.

I always thought this is actually a 3D render on the left side, but the right side not re-rendered but indeed 2D color edited.

Not sure how somebody got their claws at a high-quality 3D model of the 991.2 GT3 yet (anyone got one?), but then there is also the question how somebody got their flippers on a mexico blue 991.2 GT3.


In any case, Miami blue looks very green when you place it next to an actually blue car. Not like in this photo/edit/render, more in a turquoise direction.

If there is high demand I can actually do a 3D render that would be closer to the truth. I worked a bit on texture representation of Porsche and BMW colors.

Here is a miami blue sample against a mexico cayman, and a pic of my old RS. An iphone makes miami blue look bluer than in real life, there is quite a lot of green in reality.

Here are two shots I recently took of a 991.2 S. I think the GT3 may look stunning in this color. However, I would not go for black wheels, but platinum.

I believe the original image of the 991.2 GT3 was white or silver. It was photoshopped in numerous colors to give impressions of the colors on the new shape. Most of the colors were fairly accurate but Miami was not close at all.

Funny how we all have differences of what looks good. I love Miami blue but it looks way better with black wheels then platinum. Makes the color pop more to me. Glad Porsche gives us these options.
