Thanks for the comments! It's been said it's the only rhd C2 in Riviera from the factory, but I'm not so sure. Porsche of course keep no records of particular colours to which territories, typical.

Dave Nunn's interior is a work of art, black nappa with the light blue stitching, and the forged Fuchs are a love/hate thing, I of course I love them.....

My favourite colour along with black wheels.

Why is it not a standard Porsche colour? i.e. not special order

I notice the current Boxster/Caymen colours are getting a bit more adventurous.


Is the small convertible behind it, in one of the photos, a lotus 7 replica of some sorts? Question

Hope you've not done yoour dough on it chum what

It looks like the oil sticker is on the fuse box so move it or get a Mobil1 sticker from isaydingdong Thumb

Although I think on the earlier non snorkel engine the rectangular Shell Oil sticker was the default

That looks great, particularly the retrim with colour coded stitching which lifts the interior.

And on the RS' too. Shell sticker on the fuse box cover and with snorkel engine...guess due to being the early test bed for the varioram.

I'd have to agree being more than a little bias, Riviera is just Cloud 9 Nice car BTW Mike, Southbound's done a cracking job of the interior thumbsup

Looks like a genuine 65 C Plate Lotus 7 to me. Wink

Stunning 993 Mike and the interior really gives it an upmarket look with the coloured stitching on quality leather.

Looks like a well used genuine 7 as most replicas seem to have a roll bar.
