For as uncommon as the color purple is to see on a car, the Germans weren’t shy about using it. We saw that last week with Carter’s 1995 BMW M3, Volkswagen with Violet Touch Pearl, and Mercedes-Benz with Almandine Black Metallic. Granted those colors are very rare and often by special request, but we are at a place where its so popular that this is a standard color on the GT3 RS. Today, we have a 2002 Carrera 4S in Paint-to-Sample Viola Metallic that, in my opinion, looks amazing. The wide body of the 996 C4S in this color? Sign me up. Although probably not at this price.

This one checks in with just 22,000 miles as well, and that is a shame given how great this one looks. The interior is typical 996 fare with no special wishes bringing the Viola inside. One thing I did notice is that the actual condition of the paint quite poor. If you want to sling this aura of being a premium dealer with the best stuff and charge a premium for it, it might be a good idea to do a paint correction. Even in the low light you can see every panel is heavily scratched. We are living in a time where everyone is jumping on the high-end detail wagon, so there no excuse for this anymore.
Price is unlisted, so you can probably guess it is a lot. A very nice 2002 in Speed Yellow with 20,000 miles sold last week for $46,000, and that was with a new clutch, IMS, a DME report, and everything. If this example is more than $50,000, then it is in the “crazy” range. I know this color is rare, but you need more effort on this one to justify it.
