Default Is this a real 99.2 GT3 Miami Blue?

Came across this image online and wondering if this was a real Miami Blue .2 GT3 or a photoshopped image.

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.

It's Photoshop. I did see both colors on the same day, park fairly close to each other but not beside, at the smokes event. Mexico blue Gt4 and a Miami turbo. The Miami had much more green in it but a bit less then picture above..

That is a PS image but it's close to accurate. I have a mexico car, and a miami blue cayman pulled up next to it at the dealer, and the difference is very apparent when parked next to one another.

Miami looks washed out in sunlight, looks better indoors. IMHO if you like "blues" and cannot obtain a PTS build, go sapphire blue and save $$$.

IMO, it looks very washed out. And yes, I have seen it in person both inside and outdoors.

I thought Miami looked good on the RS. Needs some contrasting bits / black wheels IMO. Disagree w/ OP that people are expecting this to be a popular color on .2 GT3.

The first pic (in the original post) shows it incorrectly. The second one (needsdecaf's) is more representative.

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.
