If I didn't have my car, I'd be all over this one:

What do people think? Marmite or universal appeal?

I think this is at least the second time through JZM in the last few years, with only a very few miles put on between. Was it on for mid 60's a year or so ago Question I do like the colour but it maybe a bit more Parma Violet than Milk Tray. If it had to be purple Viola is the one worship Will probably be sold by tuesday. Thumb

Marmite - out in the real world at least as many people will hate it as love it I reckon. Equally, I don't think that there will be many who have a take-it-or-leave-it impression of the colour.

Not for me, and certainly not at that kind of money (though I am sure that it will sell, and it probably won't take too long either).

Even in the mid 90's you'd surely had to have been on some serious Class A to think that colour was a good choice. Maybe Paul Smith or Ozwald Boateng might like it. Metallic lilac. Who grew up dreaming of owning a metallic lilac car? Question

A pal of mine ran an oak green with cashmere interior 4S for a few years.
I believe it went back to the UK?

Still think 993s suit better in blue (ocean blue) but white isn't the worst ever, it tends to not show the width /loses the oe rims a bit.
Vesuvius is gorgeous in the flesh. 30 bgs waiting Grin

Yuk My god, that is awful. Lovely car otherwise but probably the worst colour 993 I think I have ever seen.

That's no colour for a grown man, even if you are in touch with your feminine side. Hand

^^ I don't know, that metallic beige one they had and sold quickly recently would probably take the crown of the worst colour Dont know

Well I think its gorgeous, much better than the boring silver ones out there
Bandit

Not too sure re the claim "just as it left the factory"...... clear side repeaters, turbo S front fogs and those awefull pedal covers.........of we are harsh

I think the price is very good in the market

I would be sorely tempted if I did not already have one Thumb

I'm sure a classy lady would look most delightful behind the wheel, however it's certainly not for a bloke!

My 6 year old son when asked what he thought said "WHAT... my Mam would drive that" Grin

Love that colour!!!!! We are all different and for me that white one that is for sale does not do it for me (and I like white cars). Plenty of 70s 911s in purple and they look fabulous now - suspect this will get even better with age.
