What happens when a rare color doesn’t seem so rare? Or at least it isn’t a color that we would expect to be very rare. That is the peculiar situation in which we find this Polar Silver 1994 Porsche 911 Speedster, located in Miami. These days coming across a Silver Porsche or Mercedes is a daily occurrence, but the presence of the color wasn’t always so ubiquitous. Still, it is difficult to think of Silver as possessing a degree of rarity, even if it is a particular shade of Silver, in this case Polar Silver which does have a lot of fans, but that appears to be exactly the case with the 1994 911 Speedster. With a purported 5 produced in total in this color that makes this a rare find of an already rare production vehicle. The question, of course, is how much does the market care? Really striking rare colors, especially pastel colors, tend to command a premium all else being equal, but can Polar Silver see the same results? The auction of this car should help us in that regard.

I’m fairly certain I’ve seen this car for sale for a while now so the market clearly has not accepted this asking price as representing the going rate. The painted wheels probably aren’t helping, but I can’t imagine they would discourage too many buyers given the value of a Speedster in general. That said, as I noted above, Polar Silver has its fans and it is a striking variant of the shade given the way its hints of blue shift the color in sunlight and in shade. So this may be a case of waiting for the right buyer to come along.
