Porsche 997 Carrera MK2 gets matte blue treatment

Now this is a matte blue-finished car that was done just right. We’re not drawing any comparisons to the Mercedes CLS55 AMG here, and although it should be said that both cars were given the exact color and texture treatment, thisPorsche 997 Carrera MK2 was able to accomplish the matte blue exterior without the car getting bastardized by a car tuner.

No offense fellas, but this is how you use matte blue on a sports car. It helps that it’s a Porsche, which is one of those rare brands that can get away with just about any exterior finish, but in the bigger scheme of things, we think that people should err on the side of caution when it comes to dressing up cars of this magnitude.

It works for a Porsche, but it doesn’t mean it’s going to work for something else.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More

Blue matte? well IMO making it black would be better, but this is the owner wants.

I agree it’s like a car bubble gum from hanzel and Gretel story.

I agree black matte is better for a sports car like this.
