Last week I took a look at a paint-to-sample Porsche 911 that was finished in one of the wildest colors I’ve ever seen. There was no mistaking its flat out pink appearance and you weren’t fooling anyone if you tried to say it had a tint of red or purple in it. Today, I thought I’d check out another 911 in a paint-to-sample color, a 2018 GT3 Touring up for sale in Wisconsin. This color was the standard fee of what Porsche charges for custom colors of $12,830 only to have lots of other people decide they want to paint their GT3 this shade as well. What is this color? Viola Metallic. It is very much a silky looking purple that is very light unlike Ultra Violet. So while not off the charts crazy, still pretty wild. You in? If so, bring your checkbook.

This 2018 only has 247 miles on it and looks like it was only driven a handful of times seeing as how a lot of the delivery stuff is still in the interior. Outside of the $50,000 in options, nothing was too crazy in terms of something you haven’t seen before or the always interesting CXX options. The sport buckets with the cloth inserts are a nice treat, and honestly the interior is pretty plain considering what is possible on these cars. I’m a little surprised they didn’t put any Viola accents in the interior, but it is not like the owner of this car is suffering.
The asking price on this car is $207,000. Just as a refresher, sticker price was $195,610. If you figure in tax, the original owner would be trying to be at zero on this one in terms of dollars spent. It is a lofty ask knowing how many GT3 Tourings on the market there are and I do think prices have started to cool just a tad. The days of lofty premiums for new cars is about over now that the 992 is here and 992 GT cars have been spotted testing. As soon as those are announced, hold on to your socks. Give how a standard 992 Carrera S is averaging around $150,000, it wouldn’t surprise me at all to see the 992 GT3 come in at $250,000 or above. Porsche isn’t dumb, they see people are spending over $200,000 on these cars, what is another $50,000 for someone who can actually afford a $200,000 car? My thoughts, buy this car if you love it, not if you want an “investment.”
