The new aventurine is not the same as the 993 color; it's lighter now.

I went to LA to see the car in person.

I can see black and grey in the video. No Aventurine green.

I had a 95 Cab 993 in Aventurine Green with a red interior. It was gorgeous! Much much darker green than these pics.

Had a chance to see a sample of Aventurine green at a local Porsche dealership and it was much darker than the LA Auto show pictures. Reminded me of Ford Mustang Guard Green. A gray green metallic closer to the configurator than the auto show.

Aventurine green looks like a SUV color to me but it's nice to see PAG expanded the palette a bit. Gentian blue looks like it may be really nice. I miss aqua blue metallic from the 997 days. Lizard green would be cool though it seems like it's only just about every RS out there.

Green (especially Irish Green) has always been the favorite color of the Porsche family - thus, the 1’000’000 Porsche was colored that way.

I love Oak Green Metallic (22L) and am very glad that Porsche gave us a similar green for the 992. It will certainly not be everybody’s color but from all the people I asked, absolutely everybody loved Aventurine Green. It’s simply a classy color in combination with classy elements like chrome.
