    Nordic Gold color

    Hi. I am tired of the usual colors (Silver, Black ecc.). I am considering the new Nordic Gold. What do you guys think, and most important,does anyone have nice pictures of this color?
    Thank you

    Re: Nordic Gold color

    nay....it will be unfaishonable in no time. go for white with terracotta interior...

    Re: Nordic Gold color

    Here one:

    This one?

    And this one in a shadow:

    Re: Nordic Gold color

    I applaud you for seeking an alternative to silver or black. For me personally however, that Nordic gold does not belong on a Porsche. Not good in any way. If you love it, you would have to accept a terrible resale market.

    Re: Nordic Gold color

    Unless you really like the gold, its not much extra to get paint to sample (about $1,000 in the US). If you're willing to wait for your car, you can have just about any color you like for just a little extra cash.

    Re: Nordic Gold color

    Is more a color you would see on japanese cars

    Instead, you may want to try a color to sample....

    Have a look at how amazing past Porsche's colour were!!

    Im talking 70-80s colours.

    Here are few exemples I am considering for the next car....

    Petrol Blau




    Dark forest green





    Horizon Blue




    Polar Silver





    Prussian Blue Metallic





    Venetian Blue Metallic




    Zenith Blue

    Thanks for these pics! But... I'm not sure that we have any way today to prove that Nordic Gold will not appear in somebody's post in the year 2020, raving about the beautiful colours they had back in 2008. Like classic cars, classic colours are only known in hindsight... just be brave and choose the car you want today.

    Re: Nordic Gold color

    I say go for it. I betcha it looks amazing in person (for example, I've seen Macadamia in person and it is stunning). People will drool over that car in 30 years.

    Well good point, I think it depends mostly on your personal taste in the very end.

    I always liked classic things...but the funnier part of it is that you can call Viper Green or Mint Green classic...and pretend them to be understatement colors

    Re: Nordic Gold color

    I wonder how much of a self fulfilling prophecy it is, that the aftermarket prefers grey/silver/black, when it seems that 95% of the new cars are grey/silver/black, the aftermarket doesn't have much to choose from.

    Re: Nordic Gold color

    I don't see the logic in getting your favorite color when you buy a Porsche. If you want a minivan by all means get the favorite color which you always wanted as a child.

    Never mind the annoying contrast a bright yellow van makes with your house and landscaping.

    If you were to purchase a work of art sculpture (or Porsche), especially a modern one, would you paint it blue or have it covered in gold leaf?

    Here're some Brancusis:

    Re: Nordic Gold color

    I miss your point MMD

    Re: Nordic Gold color

    Which do you like better? The monochrome ones above or these below?

    My point is to appreciate the sculptural qualities of a work of art like a Carrera body is best left in sculptural tones.

    Re: Nordic Gold color

    Oh now I understand!

    Ehehe, well but again to me its a matter of personal taste...


    like.....







    Re: Nordic Gold color

    Haha! Funny pic you chose R_S_R.

    Yup! Get what you want. People should do that.

    OTOH, Because they are so shapely Silver 911s will NEVER go out of style.

    Re: Nordic Gold color

    Yes I agree

    Re: Nordic Gold color

    Just saw a Nordic Gold 997 today, not eveyone taste by if you like it why not....

    If I saw it again, will pic for you Vitto.

    Saw one exactly like that at a dealer and it looked great. Good combination.
