There’s good and bad to monotone. On some cars it looks good and everything works together well, while on others a little more contrast is probably welcome. Wherever you might fall on the color contrast continuum, I will say that these monotone examples – other than the fairly popular triple black combination – typically rely upon rare and interesting colors and in that regard they are almost always worth investigating further. Generally these combinations aren’t purely monotone as there tends to be some contrast with either a slightly lighter or darker interior to help break things up just a little, but overall the colors are close enough. The example we have here falls squarely within this realm and I imagine the question of whether it works will be quite subjective. Here we have a Wimbledon Green Metallic 1992 Porsche 911 America Roadster, located in New Jersey, with a matching Wimbledon Green leather interior. Big tennis fan I guess?

Wimbledon Green definitely has its fans, but this is the first time I have seen it as an interior color. The ad states that both the interior and exterior are spec’d to sample, but that is incorrect. Still each is quite rare so that shouldn’t deter us too much. It’s also been outfitted with a hefty dose of options and this might be the first 911 I’ve come across where I appreciate the rootwood accents. I’m still not sure they are truly befitting of a 911, but here they provide nice contrast pieces within all of that Wimbledon Green and they fit in quite well. The America Roadster itself is pretty rare and we’ve seen prices above $100K so the price here isn’t absurd. It doesn’t fall into the line of limited-production performance models or models with clear roots to Porsche’s past, a la the Speedster, so even with their rarity the America Roadster may never really take off like we see with others. But that doesn’t mean they won’t show nice value. With its low miles and rare color combination I imagine this one will attract notice, but there’s a whole lot of a very particular shade of green to love so it’s going to take a particular buyer.
