Followed a bright green 993 through Hemel Hempstead /Leverstock Green yesterday evening - and it looked really good - and quite unusual I think.

Anyone from this forum ?

Long-standing resident of St Albans. I saw it twice the other day (after a long gap). I am endeavouring to make contact. Fantastic colour - not sure if Viper?

Might be Signal Green (colour from previous 911 series, option 998).

Sounds like a nice colour for the 993 shape ?

Of the solid greens, there's Porsche Green (997 GT3 RS), which is often mistaken for the infamous '73 Viper Green. Then there's Emerald Green which is actually exactly the same as Viper Green (!). And finally there's Signal Green which is actually different to Viper Green. Hope that makes some sense Wink

On the case - was too slow with iPhone last time. It's a well-known car near here and looks fantastic with nice number plate.

Thanks!

However, that one is as follows:

Untaxed | Tax due: 01 August 2013
No MOT | Expired: 31 July 2012

So, could be a different one to the one referred to in the first post, given that one was seen 'in the wild' in July 2013, and with a "good number plate too."

It's a narrow bodied 993 (C2 from memory) with no spoilers....when I last saw it. St.Albans based car.

The viper green looks perfect on a 993👍

I'm keen to see pics of the other car.

There was an Exclusive /PTS 991 at Reading a couple of years ago in a beautiful early Porsche green (non metallic).👍👍👍

I met a guy with a Viper C2 at the Brands Porsche festival in 2014.

I have a few photos, but don't like to post pictures of others cars online.
If it is the same car the plate was N---POR at the time.

The car was rhd and originally supplied to the UK, believed to be the only one?

I love that photo, I saw it last night and showed my gf who rolled her eyes at me Smile

It looks fantastic, I saw a viper green I think 2.7 hot rod that had been built for a wealthy client at Paul Stephens that looked fabulous. It would never impress the illuminati but I loved it.

If thats a genuine from the factory colour then thats rarer than an honest second hand car dealer from hull.


Dont want to offend the owner of posting pics of the car......i have way too much time on my hands right now and im bored stiff.

I think it looks very nice Cool
