Did the one you let get away look like this gorgeous metallic blue 74 Carrera by chance?

No, because it had a coat of GR over the blue, and was a targa.

Any color other than Red, White or Black is fun, unfortunately the three Porsches I have are Red, White and Black.

I guess when you are confident in your manhood you can drive a porsche in a jelly bean color without worrying about what lesser men think

The most confident of confident manly men(?) must drive their jelly beans wearing mini-skirts, hoop neck blouses, fishnet stockings, and sequined stripper boots!

I saw that crystal blue at Enderle a couple weeks ago. I don't believe I've seen that color before. Very cool!

Re the crystal blue 911T: it was purchased new in 1971 off the showroom at Rusnik Porsche in Pasadena by a recent divorcee who bought a present for herself. Daily driver for 20 plus years, she was active in the POC and took many of their drives and rallies including Laguna Seca until she parked it in 1996. She kept every record incl dmv receipts, every service, all factory warranty, window sticker etc. One repaint 30 plus years ago, 150K miles, factory options incl AC and leather. And a true Ca no rust survivor. My wife thinks I bought it for her. Somewhere I read there might only be 14 or so known in crystal blue.

Ive got a 1969 Karmann Ghia that's that exact same blue. It's headed to the crusher. But in all fairness it's color is only slightly responsible for that.

I have a brown 911. Wanted a period color (1970s) when I bought it a few years ago. Mine was originally Bitter Chocolate, which is a redder shade of Sepia. The car was repainted by a previous owner to Manganese Brown, which is a Mercedes color of the era. It is a more maroon-brown. Looks great and even though it isn't an actual Porsche color, it really fits the car.

I'm a blue and green guy and for some reason the Crystal blue just doesn't do it for me. Something about it looks washed out.

I am a peppermint pig fan, as they call those green 964s in the UK. Targa would be winning.

You're welcome. I don't visit here as much - I hang out more in the Facebook Porsche communities, because they don't have as many fussbudgets and complainers. I do like to hear form Mountain Matt and Techweenie and Unobtainium every now and then, so I drop by this little slice of heaven every now and then. For folks really confused on what the marketplace says about certain cars, I refer them here, because most of these guys have an idea about what the market actually is.

I had a conversation with a guy who had a mid-year that had been up-dated to SC/3.2 look. I told him that the current trend was for narrow-body middies as holding the higher values. He about popped a gasket.

I swear, if someone had a 76 in salmon as the original color, completely unmodified, they could write their own price. Mid-years are for the folks who want a narrow-body car without paying the longhood premium. But they are starting to catch up to G50 3.2s now. If it were me, and I had no budget issues, I'd drop a 3.6 into a 76, refinish in Salmon, do the interior as a 930 of the same era, give it the Ronnie N. TexASS AC treatment, and be happy with the daily driver that I could drive for the rest of my life.

Corvus,

Based on your description, this car would appear to have your name written all over it.
