Floor Floor you can hear the conversation

wife " yes dear you can have a new car but it must match the blinds"
husband 'Ok Dearest its only cheap as its only got 2 letters and 1 number in its name"
wife "Oh thats good dear as long as your not buying a Porsche as they are expensive"

Top marks for picking an unusual color and that car looks like it's made of glass. Super shiny.

When I first saw it I though it was a denim wrap Thumb

Graphite Blue is a proper marmite colour for me...had a Boxster loan car in it and really couldn't decide if I liked it or not. I think it's a real shame that all of the new colours Porsche has introduced seem to be bad variations on popular PTS colours.

Crayon - Too brown (Fashion Grey, SC Grey, Grigio Campovolo are all better)
Miami Blue - Too green (Riviera and Mexico are both much better blues)
Graphite Blue - Too blue (Grey/Black from the 997.2 GT3 RS is a much better colour)

Those are at least my opinions!

Spot on.

I'd like to see them go back to the vivid colours of the 70's cars.

I like the purple- no idea what it’s called but there was one at OPC Leicester last month.

I like it, but then again I'd take a 991.2 GT3 in pretty much any colour.

I’m picking up my new-to-me GT4 on Saturday (OPC Reading). The salesman told me the owner had just px’d it for a brand spanker GT3 in graphite.....reckoned it looked amazing in the flesh. 👍

Saw a Graphite Blue Boxster in the flesh on Sunday. In cloudy skies it looks grey with a faint hint of blue. In sunlight it brightens up tremendously and looks very blue.....more Farrow and Ball.....

Either way very nice. If it was chosen for a GT3 then it would certainly look the business on the Rivieria, or on one the three days a year we get sunshine "oop north" .... Grin

Maybe that's why GT cars are spec'd in outrageous colours....I'm not usually a 'purple' man but in the YouTube video of Chris Harris testing a GT3 at the Porsche test track, the colour looked good, I could be persuaded if anyone knows of one for sale, answers on postcard please to....Mr. J Porschekit at 911UK.com Grin

Yes I saw one at Silverstone and wasn't that sure about it. Crayon I did like though.

Here are some photos taken at Studio 434 of Shamis car.
Back in March , just a few days old. Better lighting shows colour off.
