Just to wash the bad taste out of our mouth from the paint-to-sample 993 Turbo earlier this week, I thought I’d look at a shade that is a lot more pleasant. This is a 2007 Porsche 911 Carrera S Cabriolet finished in paint-to-sample … something purple. The seller says it is “Lavender,” however I don’t recall that being an option for the paint-to-sample cars. This looks much more like Vesuvio Metallic or a shade very close to that. It doesn’t scream purple like an Ultraviolet, but rather has a little bit of a grey tint in it. Personally, I like it. But maybe not on this exact example.

As you noticed, this is a 997 Cabriolet with the Tiptronic gearbox. Not exactly the enthusiasts first choice when it comes to picking a 911. Even more, the car has over 163,000 miles, a scrape on the front bumper, and of course a custom audio system that I’m sure was handled with care. Basically everything you don’t want when looking for your ideal 911.
The starting price of $27,500 is more than reasonable as it sits, so I guess if you are into just cruising and want a cheap 997, this is maybe it. So while I really enjoy the color, I think everything else kills me on this one.
