The seller states this is 1 of 6 existent in this color combination. I’m assuming by the text that means existent now and not originally existent, but I could be wrong about that. I’m also not sure if it’s verified, but regardless of how many there are there certainly will not be many.

The original Viper Green – as opposed to the later metallic version – is simply stunning. It’s about as vibrant and alluring a shade of green as I can imagine with perhaps the modern version of Signal Green being its only competition. We sometimes speak of the neglect of green cars on the market – in many cases they don’t tend to sell as well as we might think – but Porsche’s pastel greens are clearly an exception, with early Viper Green a quite obvious exception. I think we can see why. The paint looks great here. It’s probably not perfect, but it presents quite well. It is also said to be fully documented, though we are not provided any evidence of that in the ad. Obviously at this price the level of documentation will be very important, as will the question of whether it’s a respray. If it’s documented and original paint, then the price is probably pretty fair. Even resprayed it may come close. I just know that I love the look of it!
