How about a PTS (Paint To Sample) green 996 with natural leather interior? I know I shouldn't, but I can't help but like it!

I reckon green is the next big colour. It's not dissimilar to the new Singer Williams - inside and out! What incredible forethought by the owner... A couple of decals and some deep dish Fuchs and at last this 996 owner's day has come!!

Amazing how much lighter it looks in sunlight, almost a different colour.

The reflections on the Rennlist pics are unfortunate, makes is look scratched and dented.....

I am with everyone else, when I saw the thread title I thought "god no" but I actually really like it and as said, green and tan is quite a retro combo a nice set of Fuchs on it would really finish it off Thumb

It's clearly speaking to your base roots - it's a tree, guys, brown and green!

(But I like it too!)

This reminds me of the PTS LHD 991 cabriolet that OPC Reading had on their showroom floor for a while about 3 years ago. Very similar colours outside and in - and I thought it was stunning. Convinced me that air-vents in body colour was actually a very worthwhile option - for someone at keast.

Looks great.
Break up the interior with few more black bits + floor mats and off you go!
Lower wouldn't go amiss either..

I'm with you Kris. That thing is awful.
Rainforest green, yes, that green above, Yuk
It reminds me of the MOD stuff we paint at work. It's either NATO green or Sand beige, depending on where the vehicle is going, all be it NATO green is a matt finish.

I could live with the interior colour against say Vesuvius or something.

Even that Singer struggles with it. They're all gorgeous but give me a different colour any day.

Variety is the spice of life though so it's always good to see other options.
As they say though, it's rare for a reason...

Agreed... some Fuchs wheels in black with silver rims and a ducktail spoiler and that would be perfect.

I'm afraid I'm not feeling that at all, awful looking colour combo for a 996.

There are some Greens that really make the right car stand out - IMHO Olive Green on a Porsche isn`t one of them
