2009 Porsche 997 Carrera 4S

PostPosted: Fri May 11, 2018 8:20 am    Post subject: Nordic Gold 997.2 4S Targa, very Nice Reply with quote

Spotted Harbour cars have a Nordic Gold Gen2 4S Targa , very rare colour I have never seen one in the flesh , looks like a lovely car does everyone like this colour or is it a marmite colour.

Anyone looking for a 911 thats a bit different this has to be worth considering

I would take that over Macademia.

Strangely, the older this car gets, the more appealing the NG paintwork will become. Lovely looking car.

Is that the same colour as the Exclusive series Turbo S of the recent models?

I like that, doesn’t look to far away from BMW Valencia Orange.

Think a better set of alloys would be the icing on the cake.

High miles!? Am I missing something or is it 28k on a 9 year old car. Unless your looking for a museum piece which this isn’t, how few miles does one need?

I was at a local cars n' coffee yesterday morning (it was public holiday, before you ask) and it struck me that - apart from the race and drift cars - 9 out of 10 were dull greys/blacks/whites etc. Perhaps they were all 'stealth' [if you're running an illegal supercharger this might be a good thing], but I suspect they're simply daily drivers. I am just as bad, as my cars are white and grey.

There were on the other hand only a couple of brightly coloured cars, and they really stood out. Presumably this is a bad thing, as you might attract the wrong kind of attention (Rozzers, knobs). But it's a shame as the bright blues, yellows and such looked so great in the sunshine... Embarassed

We need more colour in our lives! Grin

Max, I think you always find the majority of cars are sold in safe colours and through out the early 21st century thats been black and silver with White arriving later in popularity as a safe colour.
I understand that concept for the ave daily or rep mobile but if your buying a sports car or an exotic your not exactily buying a bland rep/eurobox so why select a safe colour Question sort of says look at me but not too hard Floor I have a loud car in a dull colour lol.
I like bright colours and to be honest if your hooning up the M1 at 120mph whether its grey or viper green the old bill Cop are going to be interested.

Dont get me wrong I like black and silver, black as it looks stunning when clean and silver because it looks good even when not clean lol. but love seeing 911s fezzas ,lambos, mazzas in bright colours

and I would imagine some other countries the buyers are even more conservative on colour then even us Brits.

For me I’m either going for so called safe colours that I really like (black or blue) or all out wild (yellow, red, orange, lime). It’s just these odd special order middling colours that don’t do it for me (this, macadamia, etc).

I doubt I’d have a special car in silver or white, though I wouldn’t rule it out because I buy what’s available second hand and don’t have the patience to wait too long. My last two dailies have been silver though.

But for now not only have I had black 911s but I make them extra black: black tail pipes, black badges, black interior changes. The cleaning is a pain though.

A loud colour GT2 would do lovely if anybody’s got one going spare.

Au contrair! Hermans over 9 years old and his milometer is clicking dangerously close to 20k Surprised I nearly shat myself when I saw it!
Herman Silver (the one before this came with 8500 on the clock 2010 My) So approaching 30k would worry me Grin in fact I actually sold Herman Cream when he went past the 30k Mark Thumb

Nope. The 'Exclusive' is much nicer. Gold rather than copper.
