It isn't. I thought it was too originally, but look at the dash top. The lighting in the photo is very deceiving.

But cocoa or tobacco would have been KILLER with that exterior color.

The interior of the mirage car is "space grey" which is a mid grey with a mauve tinge. I had that in a lux 996 built in 99 which was a special edition fitted with LSD, sound package and full leather interior. Didn't stop the RMS and the DMF failing numerous times though!

Dave, if you are refuring to the front licence plates, thats because over here in the UK they are a legal requirement!
Self adhesive tape won't work well on the rounded nose of the 993!

Too bad the Mirage Metallic has the steering wheel on the wrong side.

I am in total agreement with you there, Mike. The more I look at it, the more I like it. A person who rocks colors like these is a person who is totally comfortable in his own skin ....

Anyone else think the purple car could in fact be Zenith Blue in poor lighting? I know for a fact that Viola Metallic is a very deep dark rich purple not light like shown. That said, I like both cars.

I think there's a reason why so few 993's were painted in those colors...

Oh, wow. I absolutely love that Mirage Metalic. It reminds me of "Grigio Ingrid" on Ferraris. Looks stunning on a 993.
