Shawn,
One of the principal rules of the forum is:

Pics or it never happened.

And quite frankly we want to gawk at your new car.

I have had my new 12 Evora ISP for just over a month now. Can't wipe the grin off of my face. It is Nightfall Blue with Cognac Brown.

WOW - M Bob - that was the first combo of car i sat in; the car was inside the car show so couldn't get the colour. i suspect that is an overcast day so it darkens it a bit.

those wheels have a nice rich look that imo goes well with the blue.

Wanted a 4 seat Cayman! Got the evora for the rear seats, which are perfect for 2 small kids. The flat seat is much better for them than the 911 which as a high center tunnel.

Scottsdale Lotus has the same color scheme. Very deceptive as it appears black in some light and dark blue in others. The Cognac is a striking contrast. Very nice.
