Vesuvio Metallic: another in a line of Porsche colors seen so rarely that I can never remember whether I have actually come across it before. The name perhaps comes from the volcano of similar name. I’m not actually sure, but the color certainly looks volcanic in a deep yet sparkling charcoal with hints of purple. It’s a tough color to pin down as evidenced by the pictures here. In the shade the dark grey dominates and you might be forgiven for not recognizing the purple tones. In the sun, sadly not really shown here, the purple shines through bringing some vibrancy to all of that darkness. I like colors that shift and change with the light and this is a pretty rare one.
Here we see it covering the exterior of one of the all time great 911 models: a 1998 Porsche 911 Carrera S, located in Miami, with 72,053 miles on it.
