I think what I’ve learned over the years is that if a color exists, Porsche isn’t afraid of it. They’ll basically paint your car almost any color for a (large) price, and then even themselves get a little cheeky when it comes to certain shades that you’d never expect. Today’s color, Cognac Metallic, can certainly be called that. The short of it is that it is very brown and not afraid to show it. Of course, it is on a cabriolet body with a dark brown soft top and an Espresso Natural leather interior as well. Who would sign up for this?

I’m as opened minded as anyone when it comes to colors, but I don’t think I could live with this one. It is just a little too brown and might give off the wrong idea to any casual observers. It is even worse considering you can get a more soothing shade of brown in the 991 body, so it isn’t a take it or leave scenario. What is strange about this car is something badged it as a Carrera S, but it is clearly just a base Carrera and the selling dealer has no explanation for it.
This car checks in still at $80,000, which is probably up there in terms of 991.1 Carrera cabs with the PDK box. I do think there will be a penalty for this color as most won’t even consider it, even in this hot market for all things sports car. Clearly I’m not alone on thinking this one is a rather odd color, right?
