A 911 Turbo S in paint to sample Sport Classic Grey. This is the paint from the 911 Sport Classic, a 997 generation 911 developed by Porsche Exclusive. Introduced to the world at the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show, the limited edition 911 Sport Classic featured extra power and a host of distinctive exterior elements such as wider rear arches, a double domed roof, fuchs style wheels, and a signature ducktail spoiler. The 911 Sport Classic also featured a new color, Sport Classic Grey. Instantly, both the 911 Sport Classic and its color- Sport Classic Grey- reserved their places in Porsche’s history books. Nearly a decade later, @mrjb29’s 911 991.2 Turbo S would wear the same paint in a build that’s pure throwback. What a beautiful spec! A terrific combination of modern performance and contemporary art. Looking for more examples of Porsches in contemporary or historic colors?

Porsche’s $90k+ chromaflair paints are certainly high end options, but this isn’t the first time Porsche has strayed into exotic paints. A few years back, one of the most unique 911 Turbo Ss I’ve come to know about was created. This is a Turbo S Cabriolet that was fully spec’d including true Paint to Sample. The MSRP on this car is roughly $320k, of which about $77k lies in its custom paint and related CXX. The color is called Boardman Blue Metallic. According to long time Paint to Sample expert Eduardo over on Rennlist, Boardman Blue Metallic is a special custom creation that consists of four layers with a pearlescent effect and intermediate sanding between layers- all done by hand. The process is so intensive, that like Porsche’s five chromaflair options, it can only be accomplished for a handful of cars every year. As you can imagine, having Porsche literally create a color- to be applied by hand- is something that carries with it significant costs both in time and money, hence the MSRP on this Turbo S Cabriolet. But if something is worth doing once, it’s worth doing twice, right? Swipe right to see a Cayenne, also in Boardman Blue Metallic and also carrying an MSRP north of $300k. This makes me wonder, when will we see a “his and hers” chromaflair pair? This Turbo S is currently for sale, contact @manhattanmotorcars for all the details.
