    Re: Unique color - Viper Green

    Never saw/heard about this colour, but it looks not bad. Really unique colour, but I wouldn't buy a porsche in green.

    Re: Unique color - Viper Green

    Very famous colour on the early 911 from the 60's and 70's

    Re: Unique color - Viper Green

    Didn't know thta. Any photos, please ?

    Re: Unique color - Viper Green

    Here you are

    Re: Unique color - Viper Green

    That's a brave choice. It doesn't look as bad as I thought it would look on a turbo, but, maybe on a GT3 it would look more convincing. Well, congratulations to the owner, he certainly has a unique car.

    Re: Unique color - Viper Green

    Thanks for photo systra

    The 60's and 70's, thats when Porsche had some really bold colors like orange, brown, yellow, black, red, blue, green, and white. All the colors from a Crayola 8 pack.

    Re: Unique color - Viper Green

    I love it! It needs black rimes though to even it out and tinted windows.

    Re: Unique color - Viper Green

    I love to look at it, I'm such a sucker for those jellybean colors from the early '70s.

    But given the choice between taking that home and one in Seal Grey? I'll take subtle.

    Re: Unique color - Viper Green

    ugliest turbo I have ever seen.

    Re: Unique color - Viper Green

    is the a 964 color Signal Green, i love that color trying to find pics of 964's in Signal Green.

    Re: Unique color - Viper Green

    Awesome color, looks really good, but i would prefer the CGT in the background

    Re: Unique color - Viper Green

    Wow that color is awesome.

    Re: Unique color - Viper Green

    I remember another color from the 70's that was very nice, I believe it was called Ice Green, a light metallic green.....

    Re: Unique color - Viper Green

    Sorry but I hate the colour . It reminds me of a Kiwi fruit.

    Re: Unique color - Viper Green

    One of those "retro" colors that looks much better on the old car than it does on the new one.

    Well, ... color me wierd, but I like it.

    Re: Unique color - Viper Green

    Noted this car in San Diego. Not easy to miss this car when you drive by that dealer. Bright green is back.

    Re: Unique color - Viper Green

    Is this color custom or is it offered from the factory?

    Re: Unique color - Viper Green

    It's a "color to sample" option direct from the factory.

    Re: Unique color - Viper Green

    Man it must be fun to do that- find your favorite color and give it to Porsche for your new car.

    Re: Unique color - Viper Green

    VG looks much nicer on a 73RS.

    Gag reflex ...

    This car is just down the street from me here in La Jolla at Symbolic, although these pictures appear to be from Pioneer. I saw it in person at the local car wash when I was getting mine washed. The pictures do not do it justice. The green is much brighter - nearly florescent. This is truly an ugly car. Absolutely, mind-blowingly, hideous. And the interior is REALLY awful.

    Re: Gag reflex ...

    I love the color! I don' t think I could drive around with it, but I think it's grest thar clors like that exist on cars... it puts some spunk into the streets

    oh yes, with black wheels - that actually looks great. Hm, a 997S in green with black wheels

    Re: Unique color - Viper Green

    the color is unique no doubt...I've seen a Boxster in LA with the same color...

    Re: Unique color - Viper Green

    Saw this in Edinburgh today, in a spooky coincidence as I had just seen a Cobalt 997S and was wondering what it might look like in Mexico Blue.

    Is this Mexico, Riviera, Maritime or what - anyone know ?

    Re: Unique color - Viper Green

    Re: Unique color - Viper Green

    Riviera Blue I think. I'm out in Edinburgh a lot but I've never spotted that. I wonder if the car was bought from Edinburgh Porsche. I myself have put down a deposit for a 997 but might just go for a 996 Turbo instead.
