Red hot and blue

Wheels (Australia) - - Car Road -

Porsche has made some­thing of a spe­cial­ity of retina-sear­ing baby blues, with Mex­ico Blue (paint code L336) be­ing a part of its her­itage stretch­ing back to the 1974 G se­ries. The slightly paler Riviera Blue (L3AG and L39E) de­buted on the 1995 993-se­ries 911, while the colour of our test GT3, Mi­ami Blue (M5C), is a rel­a­tively re­cent in­tro­duc­tion, ap­pear­ing on Porsche’s op­tions list in 2016. It’s a lighter shade with a lit­tle more turquoise in the mix than Riviera and is a $7990 op­tion. Too fem­i­nine for the ballsy GT3? You’d best be the judge of that.
