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. The car is already on display at the Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur booth at the Nürburgring for the AvD-Oldtimer-Grandprix.
