My old coral red '92. It changed between a salmon color and a burnt orange, depending on the lighting.

It is kind of funny. I have been trying to figure out the difference between my ruby red and the garnet red metallic. They seem almost a match in the right light. There is a euro color too I thik that is very similar. Saw one on here once, but can't remember te name of the color. But I guess technically, we have to go by paint name/code, right?!

I'm trying to figure out what Stormmaster's color is. Is that a Charcoal Grey with a tinge of Navy Blue? It looks frikken fantastic, like the 911 put on an Armani suit or something.

I love the Forest Green Metallic, and the Coral Red. Very nice!

Mine is Schiferblaumetallic. It has a lot of silver in it, and it turns more blue in low light.

One of the reasons I bought the car was because this color and wheel combination isn't that common, not because I it was my favorite.

Car Colors

The color is one of the reasons I bought this one.

[B]Here's the carbon RS replica. Everything is carbon. His move was to accentuate the carbon by painting the "regular" (read: metal) stuff silver, and clearcoating over the carbon. It is stunning in person.

thanks for posting...
Looks great!! I hate to cover the carbon up, but like I said...it would look way more classy with the carbon painted back to black. But then again, the carbon does look good!! It wil have to stay carbon for atleast this year, as I have spend all my dough on the rebuild and EFI conv...Brad

Tail is a GT2 unit. Does not look so good without 930 flairs if you don't already have them.

Brad - wouldn't the carbon fiber pattern show through the black paint? That would look good.

That is the car I am going to put it on. I would not do it if not for the efficient use of the intercooler. I like the tail that is on my car now and think it looks better for the overall appearence of my car.

I would go into efficiency of the intercooler with you since I know you are more of a guru than me .
