The Paint Of This Porsche 911 Turbo S Costs Nearly $100,000

If you want a custom color from Porsche, you’ll typically have to spend between four and sometimes low-five figure sums. This Paint To Sample 911 Turbo S however, takes things to entirely new heights.

According to those familiar with Porsche, the color, Phyton Green, is one of just five so-called ‘Chromaflair’ paints which the German marque produces each year. The other ‘Chromaflair’ colors are blue, gold and violet.

The color bears some resemblance to the host of green shades offered by Lamborghini but is much more expensive. In fact, PTSRS on Instagram has discovered that the paint alone costs 82,645 euro ($97,785), over half the MSRP for a new 911 Turbo S in the United States. Heck, the paint scheme alone makes this Turbo S even more desirable than the newly-launched Exclusive Series.

As with the rest of the range, power for this Turbo S is provided by a twin-turbo 3.8-liter flat-six engine delivering 580 hp and 553 lb-ft of torque at overboost. That’s enough grunt to make the Turbo S one of the most accelerative production cars on the market.

A PTSRS Exclusive: This paint to sample Phyton Green “Chromaflair” 991.2 Turbo S will be the show car for Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur at the upcoming AvD Oldtimer Grand Prix this weekend at the Nürburgring. According to @killsbugsfast who saw this car in person, this is one of several “Chromaflair” paints for which only five examples are produced per year, and is priced close to six figures. There are also blue, gold, and violet versions of “Chromaflair”, with the violet example having been displayed before in Zuffenhausen. Much thanks to @minimaldigital for the shot. What are your thoughts on this color? #PTSRS

Many readers couldn’t believe the “close to six figures” statement regarding the price of the Phyton Green “Chromaflair” paint on this Turbo S. Swipe right for the proof, thanks to reader @jcaobs. €82,645. For this car, the CXX options (special wishes requiring custom tailoring) alone total over €107k.

  • Stupid is as Stupid Does

    Love Porsches, but this is whole other level of stupid regarding paint price.

  • Gustavo Adriano

    TVR feelings…. I loved the color scheme!!

  • Six Thousand Times

    I like it. Ixnay on the black wheels, though.

    • eb110americana

      I was going to downvote your comment, since light colored cars with black wheels look so good. But you are right, this would look much better with some nice bronze rims.

  • Akira

    Or you know, you can also plastidip your car for a fraction of the price…

    • europeon

      Plastidip is crap. Wrap it.

  • psiqtas

    And is s*itty like most paint of modern cars – soft ecology…

  • FlameWater

    I bet you could of given that car to some Ese’s in L.A that would of gold flaked that thing for a fraction of the price.

  • Blade t

    100k for special paint ? No thank you….

  • john1168

    That looks fantastic! I’d love to see this in the sunlight! Too pricey for me though.

  • europeon

    I think there is some mistake there. No way in hell a paintjob costs that much, especially when a lot of other manufacturers offer paint to sample or even “chromaflair” colors (Range Rover) as standard. Mike Lavallee isn’t charging that much for a paintjob.

  • Howard Rosenbaum

    Gives a whole new meaning to “honey I got a small scratch on the car ” narrative . So, how much is the touch up paint ..?!!

  • nastinupe

    That color looks amazing. I would have done a matching green lip on the rims and brake calipers. That would have set it off perfectly.

    This is the kind of car you put a 1000 hp kit on and drive around all day looking for kills.

  • eb110americana
  • Wandering_Spirit

    I don’t dislike the color, which is itself original. I find the price outrageous and this specific color easy to get tired of. I’d go for the violet probably. However, there isn’t color or paint job in the world that justifies that price.

  • TheBelltower

    It can be expensive being a douchbag. That’s why I wipe my a$$ with gold leaf.

  • drc

    I remember when Porsches were all about driving – and not bling.

  • Infinite1

    Love the color
