Thanks - if that’s representative then it’s not for me - interesting how different it looks to other images of OGM on this thread smile

My mate's off to Germany next week to spec his PTS Turbo S (he's buying through JCT600) so it's definitely available. He was originally going for Rubystar Red but is looking at Maritime Blue and anything else they suggest. If Rubystar or Maritime, he's having the seat panels and door cards in corresponding colours of leather a la 964RS.
If he’s hoping rubystar looks anything like the 964 rubystone he’s going to be very disappointed
I thought they just changed the name, for whatever reason, but it was the same colour.
What's different ? More pinky, less pinky, more reddy, less depth? Thanks.

Looks too chintzy that. I am sure the owner would be delighted but it’s very desperate housewives and all candelabras that.

You should maybe go and see the oak metallic green 992 at JZM better to see colour on the car. The standard Jet Metallic Green gorgeous. Has a real pearl effect under the lights.

Mint green or RS green anyone? smile

Dark olive, best 911 colour ever. With dark grey or bronze wheels.

I’m sure I saw that on the Edinburgh bypass today. Great colour for a GT car.

I approve of this thread - quite fond of Rainforest Green, never seen it on a newer 911. If you ask nicely you can match the interior to your dog!

I ordered a Taycan in Oak Green, it looks very different under showroom lights than it does real world.

Real world on an overcast day it's much darker.

Showroom pick:-



Real world pick same car:-




Overcast drizzly day on my drive:-



The last two image are much more prepresentative of what the human eye sees. Cameras seem to lighten this colour somewhat under electric lighting.

Come on guys, everybody knows that green is an unlucky colour...

Don't they? wink

Sometimes I think nice but then I think 'not for me'.

I’m not sure tbh - I swapped a normal slot that I think I would have had by now for a PTS slot which they said could delay it up to 4-6 months, to which I said fine. They did say it had moved to 2023 now that you mention it, but also said that means it will still be in delivered in early Q3 this year - I don’t really get why a 2023 car is delivered in 2022 but I think that’s a “thing”

I’m glad I haven’t had to lock it in yet as I’m still non the wiser smile

R, maybe you should start with the preferred colour for the various stripes and decals that will obviously be added, then work back from there on the body colour scratchchinbiggrin
