Default Two Rare 993 colors..

Hi Guys.

Just found two lovely 993s for sale at JZM (UK). No affil.

The exterior colors on these two 993s are just stunning! One is the very rare mirage metallic, which is kind of a champagne metallic finish. The other one I've never seen before, must be a one off. It's violet metallic. It looks kind of like viola metallic, but much much brighter. Love both, especially the violet . Enjoy

I'm sure someone would love those two colors, but I think there's a reason those colors are rare: they don't appeal to most folks.

I like 'em both, although I don't think I would want the second one. I love the non-metallic, darker purple, but that is a bit too feminine for me.

I have always loved unusual colors on Porsches, that is, as long as it's not on

But i'm sure there are two buyers out there somewhere who will love those two cars.

Thanks for the link.............ZP44

I like the violet, but not so much on a stock-ish coupe. It would look great on a car that is built up though... Or maybe I'm just getting old

I'd drive the mirage one, it's very handsome...would definitely take it over the eleventy billion silver or black 993s out there. The purple one is nice too, but it's one of those colors I'd probably get tired of owning, although it is very nice.

Those are both really beautiful cars. Actually, all the cars in that showroom are nice. But doesn't it make you angry that someone went around and put all those screwholes in the front bumpers on all of those cars???

The purple is not for me. Was it the 993's that had commercials with all kinds of interesting colors?

my wife convinced me to buy a jellybean colored car (her words, everyone has black silver or white), never looked back - no regrets....
as ilko says tho' perhaps needs to be special, widebody, turbo, speedster or modified

I'd own either one, no problem, but the Mirage Metallic is a beauty, hard-back sport seats to boot. What color interior is that, Rubicon?

I like the interior color on the Champagne car. I think it's Cocoa.
