Hi all, I could use some help! My order will be locked any day now for a 2021 Taycan 4S. Currently spec'd dolomite silver. I'm debating switching to neptune blue but can't find any real-life pictures and don't trust the configurator renderings.

Does anyone have a real-life picture of the car in neptune blue? Or any other Porsche (or other car) images of even similar colours? Would be much appreciated!

That’s a 2021 color and they haven’t started building those yet.

Presumably this is Neptune Blue and the best we have right now. Sapphire Blue was one of my favorite blues of all time and this looks similiar.

Still, awfully risky to spec it without seeing it in real photos or video, let alone real life. Especially as it's a premium cost color.

@CharlieVan No one knows. There is the configurator image and then only guesswork. Ask Porsche for a sample but they'll probably ignore the request. I'd say make the request and stick to Dolomite unless they release a sample or official photo before your lock date.

The configurator is notoriously off on colors so you'd really be rolling the dice. Just for the Taycan the Dolomite, Mamba Green, Frozen Blue, and Carmine Red look shockingly different in real life vs the configurator.

Here is Neptune Blue from the Porsche pamphlet. Looks similar there to the thread I posted which is definitely not Gentian. But all guesswork. Colors in this pamphlet are generally closer than the configurator but some are still a bit off.

Dolomite is a lovely color.

Neptune looks like a really a terrific color. Here’s my Dolomite. Amazed at how it doesn’t show dust or dirt. Excuse the side markers, a weekend project to install the clear.
