Looks like fun! Is that a shark blue 981?

I was way overscheduled yesterday or else I might have tried to make it.

There is a whole lot of black, silver, and grey in pic 1. Not surprising…


Edit: I will admit that I am guilty of liking grey vehicles, but I am slowly moving away from that like I have with silver, which I now loathe.

It was great. Probably 3x the size of last year. We will get official tally of food delivery later this week. Here is the news blurb.... My 15 seconds of fame.
Exotic cars line up for the 5th Annual Phil-A-Trunk in South Philadelphia

SCA, I took note of the lack of many PTS cars in the lot. There were 5 or so Shark cars. A number of the 'black' cars in the picture were actually night, lunar or other dark blues.

There was a Meisen Blue GT3 that was pretty.

I recently read on RL that Shark Blue is NLA come April ‘24 992 production. An individual submitted his GTS order in SB for April production and PAG declined it and they were instructed to select another color.

Edit: PTS Gulf or Meissen Blue GT3. Do you happen to know which? Miami Blue on the Cayman in pic 2.

Edit 2: I just read another post from a different individual that Racing Yellow is going NLA too.

According to my dealer;
March 1st Shark Blue is NLA
March 15 Racing Yellow is NLA

I am going to be pissed if Bahama Yellow becomes the new “special” color.

Meisen - note his license plate it's the Porsche color code. There were a few PTS cars, but nothing I was really considering. I was hoping to see Amethyst in person. One of the guys had a ruby star gt4rs. Definitely not my style

And I have no clue what Porsche is doing with colors. They announced the end of racing yellow when they announced Aventurine was done. They dumped 3 or 4 colors in total this fall.

I did notice that, but I got distracted and lost my train of thought by the time I finished the post and hit submit.

I suspected all along that Shark Blue would have a limited run. I certainly see that as a plus.
