Porsche's Paint To Sample Perfection

Ordering a new car is one of life’s rewarding moments. You’ve earned enough to treat yourself to that vehicle of your dreams and you’ve decided to order not just your very own car, but a car unique to you, that no one, or very few people, has. Many prestigious manufacturers satisfy their customer needs by offering customisation and exclusive ranges to everything from their paint colours and colour of the leather for the inside, to specific stitching, monogram detailing or bespoke tread plates to the door sills. One of the most popular choices is to go for a custom exterior paint colour and Porsche’s customisation options are the perfect example of this.

Everyone knows that buying a Porsche product is buying a quality product, a tried and tested engineering masterpiece from one of the best in the business. As you’d expect their customisation process has seemingly limitless possibilities, not just with colours but materials, trim and so much more. It presents the perfect opportunity to make something truly unique to your car. In order to make your Porsche that bit more unique, Porsche offer a service called ‘paint to Sample’ providing you with the opportunity to create that perfect shade of paint for your car. Their Paint to Sample process will not only match any colour of your choice but ensure that it is tested on every type of trim material for finish, match, durability, wear, fade, suitability and even how well it will date over time.

Understandably this process can push the price of the car up by quite a margin, depending on the unique finish selected, some Paint to Sample cars have been known to have paintwork that costs as much as the car itself. Not only this but all that testing and re-testing can also delay the order of a car for many months in the process, but if it means you getting your dream custom colour it’s a process well worth waiting for. If you’re looking for the car of your dreams, why choose a colour that someone else can simply select from the list of colour options. In the grand scheme of things, if you’re spending upwards of £100k on a car, why not go a bit further and make it look that bit more special, and something that is unique to you.

Our 991 Gen II 2018 Porsche 911 Turbo S PDK is finished in stunning Paint to Sample Acid Green. A colour that not only ensures you stand out from the crowd, but a rare colour previously specified on a select few Porsche 918 Spyder examples. The Acid Green paint puts colour offerings by McLaren, Ferrari and even Lamborghini in the shade with its luminosity from its flat colour finish looking bright on even the dullest of grey British days.

It comes with a very extensive list of features including AeroKit in high gloss black, Burmester Surround sound system, Front axle lift, Electric sunroof, Adaptive cruise control, Power steering plus, Privacy glass and much more. This along with features standard to the Turbo S of Carbon ceramic brakes (PCCB), Porsche dynamic chassis control (PDCC), 18-way adaptive sports seats, carbon interior trim, adaptive front splitter, the list goes on and on. This stunning example has had over £25,000 worth of additional options specified and comes with a full Porsche service history, as well as the remainder of a manufacturer warranty until March 2021.
