Fresh off last week’s red car, I bumped into another car that just happened to be a much different shade of red. This 2015 Porsche 911 GT3 is finished in paint-to-sample Arena Red, which technically is a custom color on the 991 GT3, but this isn’t this first time we’ve seen it on a 911. Arena Red was the launch color of the 993 Turbo and featured on the ironic Kills Bugs Fast poster that we all probably had a chuckle over when remembering it. It isn’t a historic color like some of the other paint-to-sample options we’ve seen, but actually more modern as it launched in 1995 on the already mentioned 993, as well as the Boxster and very early 996 cars. Does it fit well on the 991 GT3?

The Porsche GT3 was released in 2004, it was a track day and racing focused streetable race car.

I personally dig it. It is different enough to be cool and isn’t garish or even too “look at me.” What is interesting is that the brake calipers are a standard Guards Red and the interior has a bunch of brighter red stitching, so there is a little bit a clash here. However, I don’t think it is a big enough deal where it would be considered ugly, and I’m sure you can’t really tell unless you are really focusing on it. This specific didn’t look like it was showed off much as it comes in with just 3,500 miles from two owners.
Because of that, we find a $129,000 asking price by this Lamborghini dealer in New Jersey. That is probably right in line given the super low miles, as I think if this had the normal 15,000-20,000 on the odometer you’d be looking at about $10,000 cheaper. While it is a notable color, I don’t think it demands a premium in the used market, even though the Porsche community is obsessed about colors. Cool to see something different here, just hope someone drives it.
