I love these colors but they must be fairly rare. Was Riviera Blue a '95 color only and Blue turquoise a '96 color only? Also, Streather's book lists two OEM variants for each of these colors with different codes that are Water Based 'Pearl Effect' paints: 39E = Riviera Blue, 3AG = Riviera Blue Pearl Effect and 3AR = Blue turquoise, 3AS = Blue turquoise Pearl Effect. Has anyone seen these side by side to see the difference? Anyone have pic's of cars with the Pearl Effect paint jobs?? All the posted pic's so far look like flat enamel.

I found this Blue turquoise Pearl Effect coupe at International Sportscars. Their prices must be decided after the 3p.m. crack break ...

Car looks 'wet' but I really don't see any difference in the finish from other cars posted....
Hmm. hope this works...

Couldn't agree more. I'd be more understanding if the car were totally stock, had half the miles, and had a black interior. As it stands, I think that "dealer" will be more of a "collector" in these times.

Blue Turquoise was a 96-97 standard (no upcharge) color. Code is 3AS. And then one of us had to bring it back. (I wish I could say it was inexpensive).

I think the 997 is a great looking car, but you can really see how much better the lines of the 993 are when they're parked next to each other.
