Which blue is this?

I don't think this car color is any of the stock colors. I really like it. Perhaps I will print it and see if the local auto paint store can
come close to duplicating it.

Ummmm...if you look closely, you'll notice that is not a real car. It is a computer generated image. It may be taken from a game. Looks like it may be from Racer.

Looks close to Mexico blue - an original 356 and early 911 color. Mexico might be a little brighter than that color.

I've got a client with a Lagoona Blue '75. This rendering looks quite a bit like it. The Lagoona example in the link above sure looks like Olympic blue.

That pic is from Racer. The original 914 model came from a guy in Texas, heres the link to it:

914 for Racer

Here's the racer website:

Racer

Although I don't own a 3D program (or know that much about working in 3D), I was able to edit the TGA graphics files that come with the car, and convert it look like my '76:



The round fog lights are still there, and the late bumpers are not the correct shape, but it looks pretty close - and I'm even driving it. It's almost as much fun to make as it is to eat!

Laguna Blue looks a lot like Olympic Blue, but has less green in it. I suspect your client's car is a re-paint if it is darker than Olympic Blue.
