"Long time no see", Eduardo. I once ask you about a special dark blue colour from a 3.2 1986 Carrera. I didn't have the color code then. Now I have found it. It is F7V8. But no one at the local PORSCHE Centers in Madrid seem to find it in their system. Can you help? I would like to repeat the colour in a new 991.2
Mil gracias from Madrid, JM

The current midnight blue is not too far off from that color ...
It has a unique character as in bright sun it is a sparkling deep blue and in the shade it's a darker version. ( fwiw ).

Default The adventure into 'Aventuringruenmetallic' begins...

Let us remind folks what all of this means.
Daniel last July was able to see a new hue
added to a list of colors expected to be seen
on Porsche models. This guide is apparently
done by the auto paint companies for the
benefit of auto paint shops (repairs, etc) so
that they they can get information on the
correct color formula for the new paint.
Daniel let us know if this brief explanation
is correct. In any case, after much sleuthing
work, we finally identified the color when it
started showing up in prototype 911 Turbos
at Weissach & other places near Stuttgart!

See post 2278

https://rennlist.com/forums/991-gt3-...l#post13111738

***

Now Daniel has spotted another hue on a
similar new Porsche production color list
put out by some auto paint company. But
the weird thing is that the color code in
that directive for 'AventurinGruenMetallic'
is M6T. Well, Porsche currently has a
metallic green in their approved PTS list
called 'AventuraGruenMetallic', but that
has a color code specified as 39S.



And there has been some confusion on the
Porsche color names before, as documented
here:

https://rennlist.com/forums/993-foru...ame-color.html

So the fact that the new color discover by Daniel
is color code MT6 might mean that this is another
head-fake from Porsche to throw us off the color
scent...and the color might turn out to be not
what we are expecting to see (check the 'Aventura/
Aventurine Green' 993 below) considering that it
has a similar color name attached to it!



Just as 'Bamboo Green Metallic' (Y76) (or is it
called 'mambagruenmetallic' ?) turned out to be
quite different from what we originally expected!

Eduardo, do you think I will be able to custom order Geyser Grey on a 991.2 or will that still be only exclusive to the 50th anniversary model? I will settle with Graphite Blue over Espresso otherwise.

A customer in Europe was able to get 'Geyser Grey' via
special request on his regular 991 C4S, so you should
give it a try!



See post #745

'Graphite Blue' is pretty nice too!

Contact directly 'Porsche Exclusive' & see if they can
get it done for you. And don't take the first 'No' for
an answer!

Does anyone know of an Ice Blue Metallic 911 in Southern California? I'm considering ordering one and, as is always suggested, would like to see one in the 'flesh" first. Thanks!

So I've decided to bite the bullet and order my 911 Cabriolet in Ice Blue Metallic, but I'm not sure what to do about the interior. My thought is to do all black leather with a contrasting seat insert. Any thoughts on what color that should be? Cream? Pebble Grey? Something in a darker stone or taupe shade? I do have kids and live in a sunny climate (not to mention that I wear jeans every day) so stains very well might be an issue. Any suggestions are most welcome!

Why not work with the Porsche Exclusive folks in CA or GA? They are experts at working with customers who go the "custom" route.

Msedaka, I don't know if they still have anything like the titanium blue/black two tone interior they show on the 2011 ice blue turbo for sale on kip shewards motor sports site, but I think it looks great and might be an idea for you.

Default The Fog of...PTS

I recently posted the following on post # 1045 on page 70:

have yet to receive a reply. You can follow the exchange at the link
below:

https://rennlist.com/forums/991-gt3-...11r-pts-4.html

Hopefully we will get a response & the matter clarified for the record...
Well, I have the following update on that story. Here is what
I posted today on the 991 gt3 forum:

That 'someone else' Whoopsy is referring to is me. And there
is a lesson to be learned here at Rennlist about this whole incident.
You can either take 'incomplete' information & run with it. Or you
can be more careful & measured when you post here about PTS.
And please double-check with reliable sources at PAG & PCNA
before posting definitive-sounding statements that could turn
out to be false or misleading. It's up to all of you to decide which
method gives you the most accurate information & serves best
the interest of our forum. The credibility of Rennlist as at risk.
This forum counts on you getting it right & not propagating
false rumors!

Here is the history of this 'incident' for those interested in the
particulars. It all started on this thread back in late April:

The 911R will be built in Zuffenhausen & they have the ability to do
PTS on all of these cars right there. Their paint facilities are 'State of
the Art'. It's just a question of logistics re: the strict procedures PAG
follows to allow PTS for their cars & the coordination of the painted
parts (exterior & interior) which come from sub-contractors & outside
vendors. PTS is not a high priority at PAG for the production engineers.
And until it becomes so, these bottlenecks will continue to exist & PTS
will remain 'difficult' to get in certain high-demand models.

But I am curious. What third party painter do you think they would
be sent to? Earl Scheib GmbH in nearby Fellbach?

That's why the limited capacity. It also takes time to
validate and inspect the finish to pass Porsche's own
standard.

The so called 'fake' PTS like the black, orange and
yellow on the R are painted in house, that part is
correct.

I must tell all of you that this is the first time ever
that I hear that Porsche sends all PTS cars to a third
party for paint. If true, I am really & truly surprised.
As Reagan said, 'trust but verify'. I'll report back when
I get this confirmed as 'fact'.

But now it turns out isn't the case, true PTS cars'
body and panels are send out to third party and
basically hand painted one by one.

I was quite shocked to hear that Friday at the
Leipzig plant.

****

Which leads up to Whoopsy's so-called update yesterday:

Originally Posted by Whoopsy View Post

told an incomplete statement at Leipzig about PTS and
I wasn't aware enough to dig deeper, unlike someone
else here who had more of an interest in PTS and would
know to ask more.

The PTS question was brought up again in Stuttgart, and
the detail was that PTS is done in house in Stuttgart, while
PTS is done by a 3rd party in Leipzig. So the Panamera
and Cayennes gets the 3rd party treatment only.

I was told 'all cars are painted by 3rd party' in Leipzig,
which is correct in the person's point of view as all cars
from 'Leipzig' which is that factory. But not 'all cars' as
in all Porsche cars.
So here is the bottom line. Whoopsy's statement which
he posted on 4/23/2016 which said 'Sorry Eduardo...
True PTS are sent off to a 3rd party for all models be it
a Stuttgart production car or Leipzig production car
'
was admittedly false.

And to prevent further confusion (which his original posting
has created ever since!
), I feel the need to point out that
the statements made yesterday about 3rd party PTS at Leipzig,
if left unchallenged, will lead to more confusion on the topic,
not less! Let me explain:

I believe that one of Whoopsy's statement yesterday is also
incorrect & misleading. He states that "PTS is done by a 3rd
party in Leipzig. So the Panamera and Cayennes gets the 3rd
party treatment only. I was told 'all cars are painted by
3rd party' in Leipzig, which is correct in the person's point
of view as all cars from 'Leipzig' which is that factory.
"

This is not so. All Panameras have been welded together
& painted at a VW plant in Hanover since day one for that
model. So all Panameras are painted at Hanover, whether
it's standard color offerings or PTS. To say PTS is done by
a third party is misleading. Similarly, all Cayennes are welded,
painted & partially assembled in Bratislavia, Slovakia at another
VW Group plant. That has been the case since day one of that
model. So any Cayenne that is painted standard colors & those
rare PTS examples are done in Bratislava. The Macan is welded,
painted & assembled almost 100% at Leipzig*. I believe that
PTS Macans are done at Leipzig's state-of-the-art paint facility
& not by a 3rd party. And until they move all 718 Cayman
production to Stuttgart from the VW Group Karmann plant at
Osnabrück (expected in the future), the 981-era Caymans &
even some 981 Boxsters were welded, painted & assembled
at that facility. And that includes Cayman PTS. So to say that
this makes PTS a third party proposition Leipzig's Panamera,
Cayenne or Macan is either false or misleading. PAG doesn't
consider the Hanover, Bratislava & Osnabrück facilities as
'third party' vendors or sub-contractors, as was implied in
Whoopsy's statement.

I contacted Porsche officials after Whoopsy made his grandiose
statements on April 23rd on this forum. They refused to engage
simply because the claim he made of third party PTS was deemed
so wrong it didn't merit a response. Yet here at Rennlist, because
Whoopsy owns a 918 & attends all sorts of 918 events sponsored
by PAG, many assumed he must be 'totally in the know'. Well, that
was not the case this time around. Instead, we all got 'schooled',
or at least taken on a dubious ride, not just 'Mr. PTS'.

You, the reader, must decide what to believe you read on Rennlist
about PTS & consider carefully the sources where that information
is coming from. Also if the person relaying the 'information' has
the experience necessary to understand the larger picture behind
statements bandied about at a PAG event. So caveat emptor.

*Petrol engines are all assembled in Stuttgart. Hybrid/diesel engines
may be put together elsewhere.
