I’m never one to overlook a car with a seemingly tame exterior, but in some cases when you open the doors you wonder if there was a mistake at the factory. I’d love to have a conversation with a production scheduler to figure how and why, outside of customer requests, crazy color combinations get made. If you haven’t caught on where I’m going with today’s car, let me explain.
This 2007 Porsche 911 Turbo, a fine car in its own right, is finished in Arctic Silver Metallic. Outside of plain black, this is surely one of most common 911 colors. Open the door however, and you are treated with a full Palm Green leather inside. Palm Green seats, Palm Green carpets, Palm Green dash, Palm Green everything. Dare I say I really like it?

Clean and original Porsche 911 Turbo 6-speed Manual Coupe. Finished in classic Arctic Silver with incredibly rare and classy Palm Green Full Leather interior. This Turbo is very clean inside and out with only normal cosmetic blemishes consistent with the mileage. It is obvious that the car has been cared for by loving owners, and all service records dating back to new are included. It is all original paint on all metal panels, verified with a paint gauge. The major service, including new spark plugs, brake fluid, and oil and filter change, was performed in 2016. The car was also recently serviced and inspected in preparation for sale including installation of a new clutch accumulator. This is a fantastic car in a unique but not ostentatious color combination that is ready to be enjoyed by the new owner.

I’m sure 99% of people see this 911 and think black leather, but I’m always pleasantly surprised when it’s not. When you think about it, there isn’t a lot of exterior colors you’d expect to have a full green interior. Maybe a green exterior, as well as white, but that is about it off the top of my head. Thankfully green is a very neutral color, so there isn’t anything offensive about this color combo or the actual color itself. The condition of this 997TT seems very nice, and is even option with carbon ceramic brakes, and Switch Cars out of Ohio has built a strong reputation of selling some of the nicest Porsches with no stories, so no real worries here.
The ask of $77,000 is about what you’d expect given the low miles and a clean history. I don’t think the color combination swings the prices up or down, because it doesn’t move the needle on people’s reactions either way. If you gave me the choice between this Palm Green or black, give me the Palm Green every time. Just be thankful it’s not this.
