2008 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S Cabriolet

Did you really like the 2013 Porsche 911 Carrera S in Anthracite Brown from a few weeks ago? Need even more brown? Boy, do I have the car for you.

This is a 2008 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S Cabriolet finished in Macadamia Metallic with Macadamia Metallic wheels, a Cocoa soft top, and a Natural Leather Cocoa interior. That should cover all of it, literally. I’m almost disappointed they didn’t paint the calipers brown as well. All joking aside, I think the result is fairly reasonable looking. You are correct if you guessed it was also ordered with the Tiptronic gearbox, but that is what you deal with when looking at modern 911 Cabs. So is there just too much brown, or is it just unique enough?

Wow. This really is a lot of brown. I’m really curious if this was a custom order car, or if some more sales manager needed an extra cigarette after seeing this one show up on the truck for his staff to try to sell. I think the build would be a little better if it was a coupe or Targa, as the top naturally is a different shade of brown and it just becomes perhaps one too many shades. Of course, the big bummer is the gearbox, but welcome to the world of Cabriolets.

The asking price of $55,000 is probably in the ballpark, but I have to think that a large percentage of people in the demographic of buyers for this car are going to pass because of the colors. It just doesn’t appeal to the masses like any other color would, so I have my doubts as to how fast this one will sell. My guess is that we’ll see it around for a while.

    I am not a fan of brown cars, but I have seen this color in person and it looks pretty good. Shame about the Tiptronic…nowhere near as nice as the later PDK.
