Would You Pay Nearly $100,000 For A Paint Job?
Porsche’s "Chromaflair" paint finish costs over half of what you’ll pay for a Porsche 911 Turbo Sby Kirby Garlitos, on
The price for vanity can run deep, especially when we’re talking about a car like the Porsche 911 Turbo S. The base price for one here in the U.S. already adds up to $190,700, and that’s without all the bells and whistles that can run costs up to comfortably north of $200,000. Now if you really want your 911 Turbo S to stand out, there is a color option called Phyton Green “Chromaflair” that will no doubt get the job done. The only caveat is that availing of this color option will set you close to an extra $100,000. Do the math and that price tag is more than half the cost of the actual 911 Turbo S. Vanity, ladies and gentlemen.
Porsche Exclusive didn’t say how it got to that specific price tag for the paint job, nor will it ever, given the number of trade secrets that are likely involved in creating that exclusive color. What we do know, thanks to an Instagram post by PTSRS, is that the “Chromaflair” treatment is also available in three other color variants, including blue, gold, and violet. According to PTSRS, the violet Chromaflair version had been on display in the past at Porsche’s factory in Zuffenheisen, joining the Phyton Green version that was showcased at the Nurburgring recently. These exclusive paint finishes may not be the most expensive add-ons in the market – imagine the options Bugatti’s offering for the Chiron – but they’re no less going to burn serious holes in your wallet.

Porsche Exclusive knows how to take your money
Porsche Exclusive offers more than just fancy paint on range-topping version of the 911.
As if an exclusive paint finish that Porsche Exclusive only does five times a year isn’t enough to tack on heavy costs on your Porsche 911 Turbo S, consider this: Porsche Exclusive offers more than just fancy paint on range-topping version of the 911. There’s a full menu of options and accessories to choose from if you’re inclined to spend for them.
Take the wheels for example. There are plenty to choose from but there is one set – wheels painted in high-gloss black – that’s going to set you back another $1,640. If you want an aerodynamic kit for the sports car, that’s another $6,960 to add to your running total. And in case you’re really into the color black, you can also get the high-gloss black package that costs $2,450. Do the math and you’re already on the hook for over $11,000 in options. That’s also just in the exterior and doesn’t even include the Chromaflair paint finish.
Move to the interior and there’s a separate world of options to choose from. I’m not going to run the whole list because there are literally hundreds of options to choose from. The important thing is that there’s enough leather, Alcantara, and carbon fiber to run your bill close to $100,000.
It’s hard enough to customize a car like the Porsche 911 Turbo S if you’re stuck on a budget. Imagine how difficult it must be then if you’re not and you’re tempted to just add all of it in one go. The car may look worse off for it, but that’s the price of vanity, right? One man’s treasure is another man’s trash, and as far as the 911 Turbo S is concerned, the phrase “your mileage may vary” definitely applies.
