Cult Porsche colours celebrate a comeback

Cult Porsche colours celebrate a comeback


With its new Paint to Sample options, Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur is expanding its range of special exterior colours for all model series in 2022. The focus is on the availability of classic Porsche colours, recognisable from over the years.

In recent years, the demand for custom-painted Porsche cars has risen sharply. With its new options, Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur has significantly increased capacity in this area. A new colour-mixing bench has been put into operation at the main plant in Zuffenhausen, where paint specialists blend several dozen ingredients down to the last milligram in order to achieve the desired shade.

Porsche is not only expanding its colour range, but also restructuring it: Custom Colour has been renamed Paint to Sample. This category includes predefined colours that have already been technically approved by the expert paint specialists at Porsche. Examples include Maritime Blue, Rubystar Red and Mint Green. These colourful choices from the 1990s enjoy special standing among Porsche fans. As part of an enhanced individualisation strategy at Porsche, the legendary paint shades are now celebrating a comeback. Thanks to Paint to Sample, current Porsche models can be painted in these eye-catching classics.

The range is diverse and depends on the model series and production location. For the 911 and 718 model series, there are more than 100 additional paint colours to choose from. For the Panamera, Macan and Cayenne, there are more than 50 options, while a further 65 colours complete the range for Taycan customers.

Paint to Sample can be ordered as part of new vehicle configurations at Porsche Centres. It is also set to be integrated into the Porsche Car Configurator from early 2022. Online filter options, for example by colour family, and background information on the individual colours will follow successively.
