Porsche is an old name with rich history, which gives plenty of opportunities when it comes to special colors. According to a Hagerty poll, the 10 most popular Porsche colors are Guards Red, Mexico Blue, GT Silver, Miami Blue, Black, Speed Yellow, Alpine White, Oak Green, Forest Green, and Irish Green.

Some other popular colors are Chalk, which is a unique and inconspicuous share of grey, Carmine Red, normally reserved for the GTS models, but nowadays available for other versions, and Lava Orange – the bright shade of orange that harkens back to 911 models from the 1960s and 1970s, as well as the 997 GT3 RS. and the 992 GT3 RS.

Alexander Fabig, Head of Individualization and Classic says: “Unusual paint finishes have been familiar throughout the history of our brand and are an important differentiating feature. With this offer, we are reviving cult-classic colors and expanding the extensive range of standard and special colors across all the model series by more than 160 shades”.

The German carmaker is taking its color-brewing techniques to the max, with a new color-mixing bench at the Zuffenhausen plant. There, paint specialists will mix several dozen ingredients to get the perfect desired shade. One batch will be responsible for the bodywork, while the other, for add-on parts. Porsche cars feature a variety of materials, such as aluminum, plastic, fiberglass, carbon, and other composite materials, necessitating the use of different color-applying techniques.

We have said in the past that few manufacturers are both innovative, yet nostalgic as Porsche. With this in mind, colors like the Maritime Blue, Mint Green, and Rubystar, known from classic models like the Porsche 964, are also making a comeback.

Born in 1992, I come from a family of motoring enthusiasts. My passion for cars was awoken at the age of six, when I saw a Lamborghini Diablo SV in a magazine. After high school I earned a master’s degree in marketing and a Master of Arts in Media and Communications. Over the years, I’ve practiced and become skilled in precision driving and to date have test driven more than 250 cars across the globe. Over the years, I’ve picked up basic mechanical knowledge and have even taken part in the restoration of a 1964 Jaguar E-Type and an Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint. Lately, I’ve taken a fancy to automotive photography, and while modern cars are my primary passion, I also have a love for Asian Martial Arts, swimming, war history, craft beer, historical weapons, and car restoration. In time, I plan my own classic car restoration and hope to earn my racing certificate, after which I expect to establish my own racing team.  Read full bio
