Can anyone identify this car?

It mostly looks silver, But, it changes with lighting conditions. It sometimes looks silver, other times even white, and very often "pink", it depends on lighting and cloud cover.

I have seen some "amethyst" cars that are "more pink" than this car, but, I have never seen a Porsche that was "actually amethyst"! They are usually more toward purple.

And, is this one Guards Red, or just red?

It is the same color as my car, Zyclamrot Metalik. Besides Ferdie's Estate, there were two 944's (coupe and convertible) and a 911 painted this color. At least this is what I found after researching for awhile.

Guards red does look kind of orangey in different light, and sometimes a repaint is NOT the same color...

while i think the 968 in question is close to Zyclamrot, i don't think it's that color. seems to me like it's closer to somewhere between Zyclamrot and some other dark grape color.
