    Colour to sample... how does it work?

    OK, months off yet but the speccing has started already After some recent posts of a stunning 'Baltic Blue' 997 Cab I was wondering how the colour (color ) to sample process works.

    If it's an exisiting Porsche colour can they provide a sample to view? In the sameway they have the regular samples in the showroom.

    And what happens if I take my favourite pair of shoes in and ask them to match those (this has been done before! >>LINK<< )? Don't worry I wouldn't be doing this, my favourite shoes are brown and I can't see this working on a 997TT

    Re: Colour to sample... how does it work?

    Porsche can color to sample anything you bring in. How ever the amount of time might be a big turn off to you. Eg: you said your favorite shoes, they send them to Porsche and they match colors. They then have to test the color to see how it holds up under enviormental conditions sun, rain, snow... this could take months. If the color passes then they schedule it for production, oh by the way that is they schedule it for special colors production which is only done ocasionally. The net effect is it could take a year or longer to get your car. The fastest way is to pick a color that already exsists and ask them to paint this color to sample.

    Re: Colour to sample... how does it work?

    a friend of mine sent them an Hermes box for the to colour to sample the orange. It was for a 996 turbo with colored back seats and THE NICEST TURBO i have seen to date.

    So if you get the right color its definetly worth the wait (i believe 6 to 8 months) and the extra price.
