Sometimes green works, while other times it was a bad idea. Today’s car, a 2022 Porsche 911 Carrera finished in Python Green, might just miss the mark. It isn’t the color that is the problem, but rather everything else that was optioned, or rather wasn’t, that maybe causes this one to look a bit odd. We’ve seen green 992s previously and it very clearly can work, but whoever spec’d this one needed some design help. Let me explain.

Two weeks ago I took a look at the base 992 Porsche 911 Carrera, which is akin to being the dumbest student at Oxford – outstanding performance in the grand scheme of things, but lowest on the totem pole within the group of peers. Today, I wanted to go a little higher on the 911 food chain with the upscale GTS. To me, the GTS was the best compromise if you really didn’t need a GT3 or the harsh ride it comes with but still wanted an extra bump in power over the S. Today’s example, a Carrera 4 GTS, comes to us finished in the wild color of Python Green. However, much like GT3s, don’t expect a deal.

Just because you can, doesn’t mean you should. That is something to keep in mind when specifying new cars. The manufacturer might give you basically unlimited customization in every color, but that doesn’t mean you should use them. Unfortunately for this 718 GT4, that seems to be the case here. Buckle up!

Introverts need not apply! This is a 2021 Porsche 718 Spyder finished in Python Green. Don’t get your snakes mixed up, as this is a slightly different shade than the always favorite Viper Green. Believe it or not, this is a not a $12,830 paint-to-sample color, but rather just a “special color” for $2,580. That’s a bargin if you think about it. It is a tough color to pull off, but if being flashy and noticeable is what you want, tough to go wrong here. The problem is, it seems like this specific car is priced like the paint has little flakes of gold embedded in it.
