    991 Paint Manufacturer

    Can someone on this board tell me what oem paint mfg (PPG, BASF, Glasurit, Spies-Hecker, Dupont etc...) was used at Zuffenhausen to paint a 2012 991 Guards Red or any other color or a PTS (paint-to-sample)?

    I have contacted to no avail: PCNA in Atlanta GA, Porsche USA dealerships, Porsche restoration shops, Body shops throughout the US, Google searches, Rennlist, 6speed, detailers, excellence magazine...).

    Usually, the paint code on the particular car will give a clue with its first letter (G for Glasurit, etc.).  Find your paint code (usually inside the front trunk).

    see page 9

    Any of these three;

    Glasurit, Standox or SpiesHecker are the only approved ones

     


    Re: 991 Paint Manufacturer

    I was informed by the 'Porsche Exclusive' Manager for the US at PCA Porsche Parade in Salt Lake City, just a few weeks ago, that DuPont is the new supplier of automobile paint at Zuffenhausen.  I will try to get a confirmation of that next time I talk to him here in Carmel shortly during the Historic activities starting Aug. 13th.

    Thank you for the replies. If you can confirm Dupont is their current supplier that would be great!

    Standox is owned by DuPont. 
    The topical question at the moment is who will own DuPont's paint division, since it is up for sale at the moment.
