In truth, when I first came across this Heron Grey 1961 Porsche 356B Sunroof Coupe I wasn’t entirely sure I wanted to feature it. All vintage cars are somewhat niche vehicles and the 356 is no different. An early 911 attracts attention because of the long history of the model. With the 356 sometimes people notice, sometimes they don’t. Their relationship to the 911 is easy to see, but still they remain separate and possessive of their own admirers.
The more I looked at this one the more impressed I became and the more I loved the subtlety of the color palette. I’ve said before that subtly different shades of familiar colors are always interesting to me because it is in those little differences that we really begin to appreciate a particular color. I have never seen Heron Grey before. At first I thought it was Ivory; it isn’t very different from Ivory. But it isn’t Ivory as it has a slight tint of grey that gives it its name. The interior perhaps is even more interesting:
