Best thread on the site.

Standouts for me is the signal orange rsr, I had a model kit of this car in orange as a kid:

Signal-Orange-rsr.jpg

And the ruby red 993 rs, I'm sure I saw one of these in Hamiltons on swan st, Melbourne in the early 90's:

Found some new colors from Porsche ,,,apparently these have been floating around for some time now ,,,not certain if these are available yet ,,,but from what I gather they are modern interpretations of older colors from the past....

is PTS a custom color not available from Porsche unless paid extra??

It's supposed to mean 'paint to sample' but these days it's a list of pre-approved colours that you can paint your car for an extra fee, mostly historic porsche colours. It isn't that simple though as the factory doesn't always have a PTS 'window' open when you order your car, so even if you ask for it, your request may not be granted.

Additionally you can petition to have a colour added to the list but the process takes 12 months or more and there is no guarantees it will be granted for a number of reasons.

There are also Porsche historic colours that they will refuse to do either because they are associated with certain special cars, or they've found with modern paints it's a hard colour to replicate. You can also get instances like RS orange (997.1 RS) where Porsche rejects a bunch of the panels coming out of their own factory so they have dropped it from the list.

All that said it seems it is the easiest it has ever been to get PTS approved following dieselgate. Porsche is basically where most of VWs profit comes from, so charging people $20k to pick their own colour off the PTS list is a no brainer. Roughly 5% of requests in the US were previously granted, with the 991.2 GT3 it jumped to all requests being granted.

A few of us bumped into a guy at the autoHaus gt3 tech night who was waiting on his pts gt3 touring. It was being painted the metalic dark blue which is a stock colour on other current models. Unfortunately he had to pay the $21k to have it. Ive now seen the car around the north shore and it does look great and it will be unique.

$21k now for PTS?? Fuck me... 

I am pretty sure when I ordered the Macan Turbo, we could have asked for PTS @ $12k and Carmine was $6k for the GTS

Whilst I am in the business of colour, I am in the wrong part of it... that is for certain! :lol:

If you think that $20K for Pts is costly ,,,,,try the chrome flair and liquid metal colors they start at $60K and go close to $100K for some of the colors ....$$$$$download.png

@edgy

It depends on what the buyer can stomach too don't forget.

I believe the 918 at the time had a few semi-PTS colours (in the same way that Carmine, Miami, Lava and Chalk are on the 991.2) and those started at $21k USD, when at the time it was $6k US for a true PTS on a GT3. True PTS on the 918 started at $49k USD, and went up from there. The liquid metal paint was $98k US from memory.

I believe PTS has always been cheaper on the SUVs, or at least it always was in the US.

Amazing work Raven

So raven the next job for you is to notate the images with the colour code.  My particular interest is #260 or is it #206?

Could you imagine having a parking lot scrape or ding from an uninsured Falcon ute on your chrome flair or liquid metal wing.....

The repair costs would be astronomical and then the question of the repairer being able to match the original finish!! Even a good spray job would stand out like dogs balls.!!!

I doubt many people would be able to match those colours.
