Arpad-- Congratulations on giving a good home to some of RL's coolest 993s!
Can't wait to see what you add next (nudge nudge wink wink)

(Another favorite: Opo / Rudy, who just added a Speedster.)


Pope -- For expertly executing the time-honored RL tradition of helping others spend their money: bravo!

Congratulations on the car and especially the color. It is the second fly yellow I see besides mine. When you see the car alone you won't see so much the difference to SY. But when they stay next to each other then you realize that the fly yellow is much brighter. BTW, Ferrari guys told me that over the years Ferrari changed the fly yellow tone. According to them it was even more brighter in the past as Ferrari sells this color today.

Again congratulations and enjoy.

Jack

Fly Yellow's definitely raised interest...

Arpad-- Until you get that photo with your friend's SY mentioned above ^^

Hi Jaeger,

thanks for the pictures and for the link of the SY vs FY thread. I guess i can post my pics there as i can take them.

In the past 2 years i've owned a beautifull SY 964, so i know the color quite well. Can tell, that i'm yellow addictive. As i saw the yellow dragon for the first time i had the feeling that this color is lighter than the SY but a reference car would be great to justify it. Like the 996TTs in your post.

cheers

Arpad

I have no idea if Porsche adapted the change in color from Ferrari fly yellow. I have also no prove if Ferrari really did it other than Ferrari owners telling me.

I tried for some time to figure out a production number of fly yellow but gave up. As always it is almost impossible to get such kind of data from Porsche.

Interesting is that your and mine car came heavily modified and well equipped from the manufacture. Seems that people who ordered fly yellow spent also some money on extras. So I have full leather, the yellow piping, carbon package Gemballa parts, litronics and so on and so on.

I realize I've been calling this color Paint to Sample Ferrari Yellow but that's not exactly correct is it since it's got a Porsche factory paint code 10L Ferrari-Gelb listed on the inside fender sticker. To my knowledge, Paint to Sample colors would be listed as code 98 Paint to Sample on the sticker and option code list under the hood .. please correct me if I'm wrong here.
Here's spdklz fender sticker on his '95 C4 .. looks the same as Arpad's so leads me to believe that Ferrari Yellow was an offered option for all years ..


Here's Arpad's again for reference:

Like often there is nothing logical when it comes to Porsche codesand production numbers. The code is L998 which is paint to sample and yes the fly yellow also has a Porsche paint code. I guess it was a color which they had a Porsche number but charged you extra with the pint to sample trick ;-) My car has the option code L998 and he paint sticker at the inner fender too. Maybe RP993 can confirm?

Default same

Mine for, for sake of argument, shows the same on the options tag under the hood. L998 Beautiful car, were the Tech Art options dealer added? How did that work back in the day? Were some dealers Tech Art distributors? Looks great love the front bumper cover and fog lamp/active cooling.

Great, thanks for the info guys. I've also confirmed from another color PTS 993 that the code on the options sticker under the trunk lid is the L99X (X being 8 or 9 depending on metallic-9 or non-metallic-8) and the owner will check the inner fender sticker to see if it lists an internal Porsche paint code and name ..
So, it appears Ferrari Yellow is considered Paint to Sample and yes, I'm sure Porsche charged enough to make it 'exclusive' enough so you don't see yourself going by every day .. heh ..
