You know why we are here. If there is a Porsche in a rare or interesting color, I’m taking a peek. Even better if color on the inside is just as cool as the outside. You can probably see where I’m going with today’s car, a 2012 Porsche 911 Carrera S up for sale in Ohio. This example is finished in Radium Green, a color first debuted way back on the 356. As cool as this color is, not exactly something that would appear on the option sheet for a new car. Understanding that, I figured this has to be a paint-to-sample car given it is a historical color. Surprisingly, this is the much more expensive option than having Porsche spray the car for $7,500.

This car did not leave the factory in Radium Green. Someone actually paid for this 991 to be disassembled and repainted from the factory black into this color. Worth it? In my eyes, totally. It isn’t just the car outside is green, it matches the Cocoa leather interior as well. Add that in with the 7-speed manual gearbox and 3.8-liter you get in the Carrera S? Just about as perfect a spec you could as for in my opinion. It’s hard to believe this car only has a little under 5,000 miles on it, but I guess you have money to repaint new Porsches, maybe you have other things going on.
The asking price of $79,000 is obviously a premium, but what did you expect? This is for sure a 1 of 1 combination and probably is going to tug at someones heart when they see it. It could easily do duty as a daily driver or even a weekend car, and that is the beauty of them. Probably not in my future, but surely an amazing car.
Mint chocalate chip. One of my favorites.
I adore the color, and the cocoa sport seats finish me off. It’s glorious.
But let’s be honest: it’s still a repaint and that’ll send the purists with a penchant to overpay running to their PCA ordained therapists.
Okay, it’s the most complete, tasteful and distinct repaint/color changes I may have ever seen, but the nagging knowledge of its more humble roots would make me crazy every time I had to explain it.
How can this be a “1 of 1” when it’s not as it came from the factory? That’s like me calling my truck a “1 of 1” because of the “totally unique” scratch in the paint on side of the bed.
Agreed, stunning result. And yeah, purists need to get over themselves.

Wow, this is a total home run in my book.
I saw this as soon as the dealer posted it to their site and got excited as I thought it was a factory PTS (I’m a purist and a stickler – so sue me). The shop that did the paint work on this did an amazing job, and I’m sure the cost was more than Porsche would’ve charged. At the end of the day though, the non-factory nature of the paint comes close to negating its value on the used market. Still a tasty Porsche, just not tasty at close to 80K.
Tell me, after all that trouble to re-paint in that glorious color, they didn’t drill for the front plate?
Marshall Goldman charges top dollar for ALL their cars, but the quality is there.
Interesting approach for sure, but it would help greatly if there were pictures of the strip down and close up shots of the door jambs etc which are prone to overspray
This almost looks like ice green metallic … wonder why the person who paid to have this done didn’t just spec one out in ice green assuming Porsche refused PTS in radium green.
I take my first comment back … just saw the pics but still a lot of trouble to go through….
Wow… I didnt even see that…
What ding-dong made that call! lol
Looks like someone previously pulled off a Shmee.
