I’m also keen on this Amaranth Violet. Lots of thinking and calculating needs to be done 😳😬🤪

Are you set on a flat colour? If not, and as Amaranth Violet appeals, Amethyst Metallic could be an interesting choice:



Another rare one...Ocean Jade?



Or, super rare, Brass Dark Metallic Laughing:

Oh yes, I like solid colours. Irish, Brewster and Amaranth. My previous air cooled (964) was Dark Blue, also flat and I loved the way it looked.

Blue... Riviera and Mexico are popular and rightly so Cool. Albert Blue and Oslo Blue are great solid blue's from the older 911s.

Here is Maritime Blue on a 993:







Do let us know what you decide Very Happy Thumb.

Some great colours and suggestions thumbsup

dare I say the word 'wrap'? Could be removed if I were to grow tired or it or wanted to sell the car on, much cheaper to do. Avery Dennison look to have something in the area of Irish Green.

Wraps are a bit like paint jobs, you pay for what you get. Also quality of materials plays a big part in cost also. Expect anything between £2-4K

If a wrap interests you, check out Topaz Skin. I believe its first a wrap to protect your paint, which they then paint over with traditional auto paint methods. This way, you're not limited in choice by vinyl suppliers, but have the luxury of choosing an actual Porsche paint code. Not cheap however - when I enquired it was ~£9k +VAT without going into door shuts, frunk, etc. Seems popular though, if YouTube is anything to go by...

Going to take a looooooong think about the options. I've already got a long list of things to fix on the car, including some small paintwork issues that will need sorting first if it gets wrapped.

Anyone done a door check strap? Mine was done before I owned the car, and like it wasn't a particularly good job.

I had mine done at Ninemeister a few years back, but as part of the full works mentioned above. Still solid Thumb
Like you, it had been ‘fixed’ elsewhere a year earlier - but this was a crap job and a hairline crack appeared within months. nooo

Choose carefully and pay just once.....

The green one is "Irish Green" no? One of the very best colours


Agreed... look on YouTube for ‘That 911 Guy’. Had his 996 painted exactly that colour, referencing the Porsche family connection.

That's an excellent link Thumb like how you click on the colours and brings up cars as an example.

Murano Green, I have a huge fascination for this colour, would love a 964 in it, but not many cars made.

I think it would look good on a 993, add a front splitter and duck tail thumbsup
