Another day, another cool Porsche color I didn’t even know existed. This is Kiln Red Metallic that was available on the 1983 and 1984 911s and 928s, and supposedly kept in the Porsche library based on us seeing it on a 1995 911 Carrera 4 Cabriolet. It is a very deep red and cooper tone that certainly isn’t obnoxiously loud, but will catch your eye for sure. Interesting that this one is selection on a C4 Cabriolet, as most didn’t go for the loud colors on the cab given they were already pretty noticeable. This example up for sale in San Francisco comes in at just 55,000 miles, but the price might be a little high.

Hot tip, don’t reuse dealer stock photos from three years ago when trying to sell your car on Craigslist. That will immediately make people Google the VIN, which is exactly what I did, to see how much you paid for it. This one sold in October 2018 for $43,000 and now has an asking price of $62,000. I might be missing something here, but this one isn’t making sense. I don’t want to say the air-cooled market has cooled (no pun intended), but the spikes are pretty much over. The 993 Cabriolets always trade less than the coupes, so I’m not sure where what caused the nearly $20,000 jump. A cool car, but really unrealistic price.
