Yes, more Racing Yellows in the world also.
I agree, based on this picture Shark Blue is much better than the two current 718 blues. I might have to do some more configurator work.This convo is about being picky, isn't it. Because why would you put something on your dream car that works 70% of the way. As long as Gentian blue does it around 70% for me, shark blue is slightly higher (as we said, Miami blue and sapphire are nearly perfect). I say it because someone recently shared their commission on a GT4 in shark blue, and I dig it like 80% of the way.

It's disconcerting when someone nails your thoughts exactly. Usually black wheels not my favorite but they can work on some cars but they don't look right on the Shark Blue, Gentian is just off somehow. The color is not true as if it's trying to hide it's color and then clashes with true solid black trim. Finally yes, the Yellow is the truest color of the three. It's, yeah, I'm 100% true yellow, not Desert Twilight Dendelion , not some strange shade of Blue or Baby Blue.....just in your face, Yellow. Period. Thank you Sir for the great pics and thoughts. 100% in agreement.Visited Porsche Houston today. Guess what I found - a shark blue 718. Now, my speculations about how the color feels in real are exactly right, it does it for me at 80%, it's nice, it's an honest blue. But black wheels look wrong on them, much better is the setup from above with grey wheels: View attachment 276047
Now, yes, they had a gentian blue GT4. Exactly as we spoke, this color is off in the weirdest way. I can't explain if it's about how it flows with the plastic trim around the car, or just the darkness and coarseness of it, it does it around 70% for me.

And finally, the most playful and honest color that I found today - Racing yellow:

In conclusion: racing yellow > shark blue > gentian blue. Again, beauty is in the eyes of the beholder. My choice for a daily weapon is always black with satin silver wheels, while my Ferrari will be rosso corsa, when it hopefully happens. Here, some other takes from the showroom:

Googled it, online it looks a lot like Gentian Blue. Probably better in person. I heard someone say the Sapphire Blue was a controversial color. Some hated it for some reason, I guess everyone has different tastes but man Sapphire Blue was it. The best blue Porsche ever made in my humble opinion. I wish they would bring that back! It's been a couple of years...c'mon Porsche. ok to admit a mistake.. You brought back Flat 6 NA to Cayman......one more, bring back Sapphire Blue! : )Porsche needs to bring back Ocean Blue Met.
When I was going back and forth with body samples in the showroom, Sapphire Blue was not at all "Yeah, that's it! Best color I've seen on a car!" I really wasn't 100% sure, but let's say that it won over all the other colors for which I was willing to pay for.Some hated it for some reason, I guess everyone has different tastes but man Sapphire Blue was it.
