Make your new Porsche look like it was abandoned with 'Patina Paint To Sample' range.
Porsche has a long track record of building some of the most beautiful and iconic cars the world has ever seen. From the timeless 356, all the way through to the Carrera GT, classic Porsches are more sought after than ever, especially unrestored garage finds. We've all heard about how important an unrestored classic car's "patina" is, meaning the way the car has naturally aged, and this is especially true when it comes to the original paintwork.
Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur, the in-house custom shop that individualizes Porsches for discerning clients, is now offering 'Patina Paint to Sample', a service that will make your Porsche look like it's been neglected for years.
Porsche prides itself on its wide range of color options on popular models such as the 911 and 718 and offers wild and wonderful hues such as Lava Orange, Python Green, Carmine Red, and Shark Blue. Porsche itself offers the 911 with over 15 colors, but Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur goes above and beyond: it gives you 105 colors to choose from. That range is about to be greatly expanded with the new patina paint option that will make your car look as if it has barely survived a post-apocalyptic event.
According to Boris Apenbrink, director of Exclusive Manufaktur Vehicles, Porsche has put a lot of thought and effort into the new range, which some might find a bit puzzling. "We use oxidation processes for the paint to get to a very rusty and authentic look. Everyone knows about our 'paint to sample' offering, but now we want to go one step further and offer 'patina paint to sample'. I would definitely call it the future of individualization, inspired by the past" he says.
Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur has already put a 911 Carrera through the Patina process, and it looks, well, old and rusty. Let's see those brand new 911 GT3s line up.
