    Color to sample

    With color to sample option - are you limited to a specific range of colors or can you go into Porsche with a piece of color and just ask them to replicate that?

    Re: Color to sample

    you go into Porsche with a piece of color and just ask them to replicate if they can they will.

    Re: Color to sample

    OK. I just got sudden fling for an aluminium type silver. I know GT Silver is a bit more aluminium like, but I am looking for something even more shiny.

    Re: Color to sample

    I ordered a Paint To Sample. If you stay with a metallic it's much easier; for a solid much more difficult. But,-give yourself plenty of time. They may easily take 60 days to get back to you to advise whether it can be done.

    Well its not quite paint to anything you like - whilst Porsche have done some pretty awful colours (pink Boxster in the UK to match the girls nail varnish) they will NOT make a red Cayenne. I know someone who tried to order guards red (easy enough to match you would think !) but they refused, and the nearest colour you could imagine to GR got the same response too.

    any particular reason why they would refuse to make a guards red cayenne?

    Re: Color to sample

    Huh?? How can P justify making a viper green/pink/bright orange 997 or 987 but not a guards red Cayenne? Is taste their reason? Usually they do whatever the customer wants provided he/she PAYS! This is the company that charges you for coloured wheel centres. Money is the only language P understand. Makes no sense to me.

    Re: Color to sample

    Let's see what they say about an alu silver RS. I'll keep you posted.

    They made at least one red Cayenne for the fire brigade of Bietigheim-Bissingen near Zuffenhausen. The Cayennes of Porsche's Werkschutz (factory security) are in red-silver. Maybe they want to reserve that color for operations vehicles. Not many buyers will order a Cayenne in red anyway, so that won't hurt sales.

    About That Red Cayenne

    On Friday on my way to work I saw a bright red SUV turn the corner in front of me. When I got close it was a guards red Cayenne S. Go figure...
