    I’m starting the process of buying a GT500 in 2021 I have a dealer lined up to sell at MSRP when available and I need to decide on color.

    I have a Sonic Blue cobra I absolutely love and I can’t decide between Velocity or Kona Blue. Does anyone have a photo of Kona GT500 next to Sonic Blue cobra?

    Not what you're wanting, but at least you can compare the three from a color chart. I'm still searching for actual cars side by side, but that's a long shot.

    Kona Blue....,........ ....Sonic Blue...... ... .......Velocity Blue

    Is Vista Blue close to Grabber Blue?

    I believe Kona has been scrapped for 21, antimatter blue is the replacement blue

    Not sure about other colors, but Kona Blue is nothing like the color chart. I was very worried when I ordered it, looks amazing in person, changes colors all the time and has some of the vista blue in it when sun hits it. I glad I got it.

    Your Kona blue looks great. Color charts are not always correct as far as representing a true color. Actual paint chips are best. For online viewing, it depends on how well your monitor is displaying actual colors.

    I have not decided on stripes, I doubt I can get a CFTP from this dealer, but maybe a CFHP.

    Are you getting the CFHP?
