Looks a great car but the colour lets it down IMHO.

The interior is stunning though so, I'd wrap it yellow then put GT3 front and rear bumpers plus GT3 fixed wing , GT3 exhaust system and alloys Grin

There's all your mods sorted too Thumb

I saw a metallic brown one with a tan interior last year. Looked like a giant hush puppy shoe.

I think it looks ok on saloon cars or suvs, but not convinced it suits a sports car like a 911.

Not me buying it though. If you like it, get it.

When that reaches vintage it's going to be epic. When it's another 5 years older it will look ten years newer than it is because the colour was trendsetting.

I'd buy it.

Looks like a classic, not sure why!

If you like it buy it! Just tell yourself you bought it so someone else will in the future.

Good luck.

Thanks for all of your input chap's. The differing opinions really goes to show that you either like it or you don't. This is the same with most things in life. After all if we all liked the same things life, living would be very boring. We would all be driving silver BMW's. Perish the thought.

Saw a macadamia 997 at simply porsche , I have to say they look nice in the flesh , it was a sunny day and the metallic brown looked fantastic . I also like the black/brown interior . rare colour and stand out from the blacks and silvers. Won't be every ones choice but thats why most buy black or silver as they are safe colours and 911s aren't supposed to be safe Floor I don't dislike black or silver but I really like the more unusual Porsche colours.

Hope its a good one and if you buy it enjoy it Thumb

The car certainly looks to be set at a good price for a 3.8, if it all checks out to be cosha. Can just see in one pic it has full elec seats. Manual with LSD increases appeal as well, as does suspension refresh.

It has to be about the package as a whole. I have not seen that colour in the flesh before. Does it have a metallic fleck in the paint, if so I think it would seal the deal for me.

I ended up with an Artic Silver one which was not on my list of wants.
Think that you will know in the first 30 seconds if it is a colour for you. After that it will be about all the other stuff - condition of vehicle history etc.

I would go and have a look with an open mind I personally like things a bit different.

Enjoy.

regards
Glen

I like the interior colour. The exterior colour is very grown up and sophisticated but as has been said before not sure that reconciles with image of the 911. Good luck with the viewing.

Brown on brown (Macadamia on Cocoa) That is a rare combo indeed. There can't be more than a handful of those in this country surely!!

I am a fan and others will be too. Since it is so rare it will help the residual too.
Get it bought...Love it

Each to there own,but for me that type of colour reminds me of really manky cars from my childhood like avengers and vivas from the 70s,pure diorhea on wheels.

If the colour is for you and makes the car special get it bought and be happy.

How weird is that, I just now finished a bar of chocolate and saw the picture of the car, different but each to their own taste, if you are a serious chocolate lover then it's a bonus, if you own a chocolate factory then it's an advertisement to your business.. Either way enjoy...... Now off to make a hot chocolate.. Good luck !!!

Cheers

Good luck with the viewing and remember in the real world cars are not discounted due to colour! That ones cheap (ish) cause of the high miles, which is what would put me off, the colour woundnt. There's plenty out there who don't want black Very Happy
