I’ve said it before, but there is such a thing as too much when it comes to design and colors. Maybe doing 11 different colors on your build is about seven too many. Just because they offer it, doesn’t mean you should click the little box. Today’s car, a terrific 2020 Porsche 718 Spyder, maybe falls into that category of doing too much. Take a look and you’ll see what I mean.
Sometimes the small details make all the difference. Thanks to Porsche, you can do that as long as you pay them lots of money. Today’s car, a 2021 718 Spyder, pays tribute to the previous Boxster Spyder that flew under the radar to most but that doesn’t mean they aren’t appreciated. Once we open the doors you’ll know what I mean.

Oh Ruby Star – a color that would draw attention at a clown convention. Some look at it and say it’s a lighter shade of red, while others will tell you it is straight up pink. To me it sure seems to brush right up against pink, but others will disagree. Personally, I love that this color exists and applaud Porsche for keeping it in the paint gun over all these generations of cars. Today, we have one of the hottest new Porsches, the 718 Spyder, sprayed in this very expensive paint-to-sample color. Although, I’m not sure I love it on this body. Let’s take a look:

For the past 20 years or so, Porsche hasn’t been shy about the special editions. Most of the time they pick the non-911s as it is easier to be a little be creative with the models. This special edition, the 2008 Boxster RS60 Spyder, was made to commemorate their victory at the 12 Hours of Sebring in 1960. The car used there was the Porsche 718 RS Spyder, which is suppose is an ancestor of the current Boxster, or at least Porsche wants you to imagine that. Just 1,960 units were made in a unique GT Silver Metallic exterior over a Carrera Red interior that was intended to match the look of the 718 RS Spyder itself. There was some other special trim as well as a sport exhaust, which raised output to 303 horsepower. Values have been surprisingly strong believe or not, and they don’t seem to be getting any cheaper. Worth it?

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.
