You Can Finally See ALL The Porsche Paint-To-Sample Colors

Design / 1 Comment

Get ready to lose some time configuring the perfect Porsche.

You could make an argument that one of the best decisions Porsche has ever made is allowing customers to paint their cars whatever color they want. Literally any color. You want to paint it the color of your ex-girlfriend's nails because she won't return your calls? (we miss you, Jenny!) Go right ahead. She might not return your call, but Porsche will happily relieve you of a solid chunk of change to do it.

It's a somewhat strange badge of honor to tell other Porsche owners your car is "PTS" (paint-to-sample). We're betting Porsche has made loads of cash from the idea, and other automakers have since followed suit. But for a long time, you couldn't actually see the color of your PTS Porsche 718 Spyder on the configurator. Now, that's changed.

Obviously, the only colors you can see are ones that Porsche has sitting on a hard drive back in Stuttgart, but there's still a staggering array of colors to choose from. The Porsche configurator was a black hole before, but now it's easy to lose whole days on the configurator. However, there is one exception to the new update, at least for now. Porsche hasn't added the new change to its range of 911 models.

Strange, considering that car is easily the brand's most recognizable model. Regardless, every model in the Porsche range can now be viewed with hundreds of colors. You can also sort by metallic and non-metallic colors, making finding that particular shade of ex-GF nail polish just a little easier. We spent a few minutes (hours) playing with the new configurator, and came up with some interesting colors.

There's some real wild ones in there too. Check out that shade of mint green on the Porsche Taycan Sport Turismo. We'd pay good money to see that at Cars and Coffee. Interestingly, there's a shade of blue called "Nogaro," which some of you might recognize. That's the name Audi used for their lighter blue colors on a range of fast S and RS models, but is most notable for its use on the Audi RS2 Avant. Perhaps Porsche licensed the name from Audi.

At any rate, PTS ain't cheap. For one of the pre-selected PTS colors, Porsche will charge you a whopping $12,830 to paint your car the same color as your ex-girlfriend's nails. She might think its weird, but at least you'll be able to confidently say you're the only guy in your local Porsche club with that color.
