    I loved this color on the earlier cars. I'll be keeping an eye out for one at the dealers around here.

    Kona should be the darkest of the blues, deep impact was in the middle, lightning is the brightest. The ones posted above though, look brighter to me than I remember Kona looking.. the one's from the auto show looks like a regular gloss not metallic. Could just be bad photos. Did anyone confirm those press photos were not lightning blue?

    Yeah the lower pictures you show look like my old 2010 Kona Blue color. May be the lighting from the St. Louis show making the first pictures look different.

    I'm a fan of Kona Blue. I personally didn't like that they replaced it with Deep Impact Blue in 2013. There are a lot of fans of DIB, but I just wish it didn't look purple in certain light.

    Here is my old 2010 GT Premium

    Those first few look way too light to be Kona. Kona is a beautiful, deep, dark blue. I wish it had been available on the '15 (non-50th), but regardless I absolutely love my DIB.

    This was my original thought as well. The original posts photos looked too brightly be Kona Blue.

    Nope.
    I went to the dealer today who’s got a Kona and Lightning to compare the two. After comparing on the build site and looking at all the photos here, I went in thinking I preferred Lightning, but came back preferring Kona. It’s a rich deep blue that is really beautiful in the sun. Lightning really pops in the sun because it’s lighter, but it actually has a greenish hint at times and is not as “blue” as Kona. Only downside to Kona is that Because it is darker it will show dust/dirt and swirls. But I’m thinking it’s worth it. I really love my Ruby and still think it’s the best color... but I’m also thinking I might want to change it up if I’m going to jump on an ‘18.
    First two are Kona, second two are Lightning. Both cars were dirty. Kona 1.jpg Kona 2.jpg Lighting 2.jpg Lightning 1.jpg

    Miss Michelle and her 2015 s550 GT Kona Blue have so many up grades and new paint job make sure to check it out. Rolling on Project 6GR wheels silver gloss 19x10/19x11 for the perfect stagger fitment. What you think of this color combo?​

    Great color in person but the upkeep will be just as hard as black. So I went black lol
