Default PTS Candy Apple Red?


3M wrap gloss lipstick red

I love candy apple red. The closest standard color is guards red. I noticed 3M has a wrap, above, that looks close.

If I order a 992 TTS I'm considering a PTS Candy Apple Red. However I'm not sure the factory can do it, requiring metallic base-coat, followed by a translucent color coat, then a final clear coat adds additional gloss. Does anyone know if Porsche can do it?

McLaren Volcano Red

Yes, it's close

Candy Apple Red has a very high bright gloss finish

Wouldn't the process be similar to that used for Saffron Yellow?

I oncwe saw a 911 that was painted Guaeds Red Metallic. It was stunning. More like Guards Red Ice!
