I think this looks amazing in Riviera blue!

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Porsche-911-997-3-8-Carrera-2S/202106240517?_trkparms=aid%3D222007%26algo%3DSIM.MBE%26ao%3D2%26asc%3D49129%26meid%3D40473ae1c5194ec4820ac79142eb82c7%26pid%3D100005%26rk%3D4%26rkt%3D6%26mehot%3Dpp%26sd%3D172890082467&_trksid=p2047675.c100005.m1851

What's everyone's thoughts? Price seems a bit keen though for a Gen1, particularly as a non factory colour change would potentially de-value? This with a set of black GT3 rims would look Cool

Interior is a bit chavy, but each to their own.

Strong money as you say.

Yeah I'm with you on that....The colour coded interior pieces is a little too much.

My favourite Porsche colour. (the new Miami blue is stunning too)

At first I thought the interior looked alright but then after a couple of viewings it did start to look a little OTT. I think the steering wheel is where the owner started to get a little too excited.

Question to consider.....Why did it need a very expensive re-spray in the first place?

Question

I had already seen it as I love riviera, thought the steering wheel blue accents was the bit that made the interior look a bit too much, I was also concerned that a full respray might of been hiding a dented past and also how it would affect future value also final think was the very strong asking price if it had been factory Riviera yes but too strong for a respray.

Seems alright to me. Probably would have left the steering wheel but done the centre console Thumb

Riviera blue Thumb

It could be an innocent " I want Riv blue, cannot find one so only option is a respray a donor or my existing car" . I was thinking about it before I found mine.

But a colour change makes the need for an inspection an absolute requirement.

Glad I've seen the interior, was looking at that for my Riv blue car, but it's too much.

Riv blue is rare and can add a premium if original. Otherwise it's a resprayed colour change car and should be lower cost than a standard car.

Respect to the owner for the colour choice though Thumb Thumb

Steering wheel definitely doesn't work for me at all. Actually looks like plastic (although it might look different in the flesh) and takes away from everything else. I would also leave the door handles in silver as well but it's all down to personal choice I suppose and everything can be 'fixed' if you want.

Interior bits aside, the colour really works and would be high up on my choices if I was ever in the market for a full respray.

Wrapping would be the better option IMHO. In this country anyway. (Hot countries...I've seen a couple with bubbles appearing.)

The original colour is underneath, therefore not affecting the value of the car.

There a Macan GTS in Miami blue (I think that is what it's called) black wheels,
I occasionally see in the local supermarket car park, looks absolutely stunning
