IMO they just renamed alot of the colors. I forgot who posted the pics of the sportcross in blue but that looks just like my spectra blue, almost no difference at all, maybe a bit darker. As for the green, that is imperial jade mica exactly. I am in love with the new red though. The auburn sky wasnt my top pick. The problem is you cant get the all leather option in black for the absolutly red. Only tan which sux. If i were to trade in my 01' SBM i would get a loaded red 5 speed w/ the 18in wheels if they put those into production. Well those are my thoughts.

That is not correct. You can get the Absolutely Red w/ Black!!! I saw the order forms that is released to the dealers and to the corporate employees. Absolutely Red is offered in the Black or Tan with either all Leather, Escaine/Leather combo, or fabric.

Okay so I went to the Lexus wesite to see what the deal is...if you notice, not matter what color you pick in the "Build Your Own IS" section, Ivory leather is all that is offered. They don't even offer the black leather.
Bottom line is that the website is messed up because it says that in Crystal White Black leather is not available and I have actually sat it one. So something is wrong.

That is true, the website is probably just messed up. I just checked it out and they only off the tan leather for all the colors which isnt possible

Well just by looking at the red in these pictures and the red on real pictures of the red IS, it seems that the colors will have to be caught on film (or memory card) before we a get true idea of what the colors are REALLY like. just my opinion

I kinda like the gold, but the red would be my #1. If they offered that red last year I would have taken that over my MSM.

Are those computer generated? Cause the gold that I’ve seen looks nothing like that…

If this is the true gold, I’m in!

Hey, I've seen the red. Picture the red that is on a Ferrari, basically same color. And you can get the black interior. For the midwest you can only get leather escaine with the 5-speed, for now. Thats what I saw and drove in today, and that is what I ordered and have coming in two weeks.
