I’d really like to shake the hand of the product planner who decided that today’s car, a 1995 Porsche 911 Carrera, needed to be offered in the shade of Amaranth Violet. Yes, this is not a paint-to-sample color, but was actually offered as an optional color for on the 1994 and 1995 model years of the 911 and 968. It’s basically as purple as purple gets and needless to say, extremely rare. Does that mean it brings an extreme premium over a less exciting shade?
I love a good story, and I love even more when those good stories involve Porsche 911 Turbo S cars. This wonderful 1997 Turbo S for sale in Munich, Germany is the reportedly press car for all of the 993 Turbo S literature and events thus built with some very special parts. Boy, do I love these cars.

It seems that Porsche wasn’t afraid of turquoise judging by the 930 Turbo I looked at a few weeks ago. As you can see by today’s car, they certainly weren’t scared of it on the outside of their cars either. This 1996 911 Carrera 4S is a desirable car in any shade, but in paint-to-sample Dragonfly Turquoise Metallic? Oh boy. Rumor has it that this was a press and demo car for Porsche AG in Germany and then changed hands to an employee who owned the car from 1998 to 2007. That certainly explains I’ve never seen one in this color and it has the extra touches on the interior. The price? I guess we’ll be guessing on this one.
