    Not the greatest colour combo. Is this going to end up in the Porsche museum?

    Yes, strictly speaking this car was 'purchased' by the Porsche Museum.

    But the car will go on a world tour first.

    Ugly rims, ugly chrome window surround, ugly wooden steering wheel, ugly side mirrors... While I "get" the historic references they are trying to make, the execution is horrible... When do they learn? They should hire Iain to configure a special yet tasteful car for things like this...

    Re: Number One Million

    You guys are too hard on the cosmetics.  I like the wheels, the pepita seats, and I even like the wood stuff.

    For a 1 millionth car, one needs to tie together all the different ages of 911.

    I think it does that rather well.  But, ... I'm old enough to remember the very first 911s.

    Re: Number One Million

    It grates with me that they fitted such special options: plenty of people would have loved to have specced things like pepita seats in  their cars but were told: no way. Then they put them in such a special model. Feels like them flipping the bird to the customers somehow  - yes, it's possible - we're just not going to sell you one.

    ?? But Dave, surely if they allowed these special bits in any bog-standard Carrera, they would no longer be special?  And there goes the whole idea of doing the lucrative special parts bin cars.... oops I mean special editionsSmiley.

    anyone noticed how the colour of the brake calipers went from red during production (in the video) to black after production?

    Re: Number One Million

    I love that car, color and spec. It is very classic. Even I'm not a fan of that wood trim/steering, the rest I wouldn't mind to drive. 

    Well done Porsche - I appreciate they stood classic instead going to much modern.

    Yes, it is Oak green . And the wood inside combined with that  beige leather is a rare option . Works well all together even if I would of never chosen that spec for myself

    David was asking about my 964 , which is Oak green

    Re: Number One Million

    Contrary to many here, the color combination works well, from a historical perspective.  Wouldn't refuse having this automobile in the garage.


    Re: Number One Million

    +++: manual transmission

    ++: green

    - - -: this particular green

    - : the design of the plaque

     

     


    Re: Number One Million

    My 996.2 C4C had wood too, GR on sand, was lovely.
