A story by guest writer, crazy man, and good friend Tino @oakgruenmetallic: Leonardo, Donatello, Michelangelo and Raphael.
Earlier this year, I had an idea, and so I invited fellow Porkers to join Eva on a simple mission: bring a green Touring and let’s go driving. Our trip included a visit to a Porsche collection that puts the ‘green’ back in #makegreengreatagain, a coffee at the Museum, some stints on empty German Autobahns, tight and twisty Schwabian countryside roads, as well as the obligatory stop at Friedrichshöhle Restaurant (where rumour has it, the largest pack of 911 R ever, has been seen hunting in the wild 🤷‍♂). The four Tourings were Jade Green (227 - now known as Hellgrün, an only recently approved PTS colour for the 991 which Porsche initially created in the 70s as a ‘safety colour’ or Sicherheitsfarbe on account of its bright hue), Black Olive (2A7 - one of the rarest greens on modern Porsches), British Racing Green (21D - a true classic) and Oak Green Metallic (22L - a metallic green that first appeared on Ferry Porsche’s test cars in the ‘70s). I let you be the judge if it looked fun! Unfortunately a couple of green Tourings could not make it (and others have not even been built yet), so perhaps next time, I should think about widening the pool of eligible colourful Porsches slightly 😉... watch this space.

Presenting the first known PTS Pigeon Blue Metallic (formerly known as Baltic Blue Metallic; taubenblaumetallic; 37B) 991 GT2 RS, delivered recently in Colorado Springs, Colorado. This example sports the Weissach Package, magnesium wheels in satin White Gold Metallic, LED headlights, and full bucket seats. Taubenblaumetallic is a historic Porsche color, having been available for the 928, 944, and 964 ranges from 1988 through 1990. I have always wondered what Pigeon Blue Metallic looked like, and only recently made the connection to its more well known German name, which has stayed the same throughout (similar to how sternrubin and lichtgrün stayed the same, despite their English names having been renamed). Once I made the connection did I realize Pigeon Blue was merely a renamed Baltic Blue. Anyways, great to finally see a modern Porsche sporting this color. Fans of Yachting Blue Metallic may fancy this one. Many thanks to local reader Daniel @sf_photos for the photos of this car. What are your thoughts on this example?

Reader Deliveries: Presenting the first ever PTS San Marino Blue Metallic (W87) 991.2 GT3, recently delivered to one of our readers Franz @forman_motorworks in Phoenix, Arizona. This example sports the manual, standard wheels in silver, steel brakes, standard xenons, and full bucket seats. San Marino Blue Metallic is a signature modern BMW color, with its latest role being the communication color for the M3/M4 CS. It is among the newest approved PTS colors, and joins the ranks of other BMW colors in the current PTS palette, such as Austin Yellow, Carbon Black, Estoril Blue, and Phoenix Yellow. The owner’s journey towards this GT3 started nearly 2 years ago when he first requested an allocation, and we can thank Franz for the availability of San Marino Blue for PTS. He initiated the feasibility process over a year ago when he sent in the first spray out samples to PAG in June 2017. As to his reason for San Marino Blue, Franz writes, “I love the electric/royal blue family and this has been my favorite metallic paint color for several years. I thought the lines of the GT3 would be perfect with it, and really wanted something unique.” Indeed, the color very much looks at home on the GT3. An important final note regarding these photos, as Franz writes, “The challenge with this paint color is that no pictures seem to really do it justice as the iridescent properties in the paint look different from every angle and lighting scenario.” Many thanks to Franz for the exclusive photos of his very special car. Last photo of the San Marino Blue F80 M3 is courtesy of Bimmerpost.com. What are your thoughts on this example? #PTSRS

Reader Deliveries: A brand new PTS Gemini Metallic (335) 991.2 GT3 has been recently delivered to one of our readers in Dallas, Texas. This example sports the PDK, wheels in satin aluminum, steel brakes, xenons with PDLS, and full bucket seats. This is the second known Gemini Metallic .2 GT3, with the first one belonging to @jls911 from the Netherlands. One of the first modern GT Porsches to sport this color was @rlt991rs’s Gemini Metallic 991.1 GT3 RS from the UK, which received immensely positive feedback. Great to see this historic Porsche color come back. Many thanks to @porsche_dallas for the photos of this car. What are your thoughts on this example? #PTSRS

Reader Deliveries: Congratulations to one of our long time Canadian readers @bennyporscheclub on taking delivery of this stunning PTS Brewster Green (non-metallic UNI; 22B) 991 GT2 RS in Laval, Québec, Canada. This example is the standard model, and sports the standard wheels in satin White Gold Metallic, LED headlights, and full bucket seats. As 1 of 60 2RS’s for Canada, this is also the only non-Weissach Package car delivered in the country. The contrast of the carbon bonnet against the Brewster Green is quite superb in my opinion, and highlights the subtly discernible difference of the color vs. black. Many thanks to the owner for the photos of this car. What are your thoughts on this example? #PTSRS

A PTSRS Exclusive: Presenting the first and only known PTS Signal Yellow (signalgelb; non-metallic UNI; 114) 991 GT2 RS, delivered recently to Clermont-Ferrand, France. This example sports the Weissach Package, standard wheels in satin black (with incoming magnesium wheels), LED headlights, and full bucket seats. Inside, note the extended deviated stitching throughout in Racing Yellow. Happy to finally see one of my all time favorite colors on the 2RS. Many thanks to @porsche_clermont_ferrand for the exclusive photos of this very special car. Paging @og_amer. #PTSRS

Presenting the first and only known PTS Agate Grey Metallic (achatgraumetallic; M7S) 991 GT2 RS, recently seen near Geneva, Switzerland by local reader Emiel @carphotonl. This example sports the Weissach Package, magnesium wheels in satin White Gold Metallic, LED headlights, and full bucket seats. While Agate Grey is a standard color for the GT3 as well as the non-GT range, it has always only been available via PTS for the RS models. It is also interesting to see that this owner picked Agate Grey for the 2RS, because it is a stark contrast to the owner’s previous car - a PTS GTS Red 991.1 GT3 RS (with reg plate “B7 VVF”). Like the 3RS, I speculate this car will be seen not only in Switzerland, but also around Monaco and the Netherlands (where this car was delivered in), so keep your eyes peeled for this. Many thanks to Emiel for the photos of this car. What are your thoughts on this example? #PTSRS

A PTSRS Exclusive: Presenting the first known PTS Willow Green (weidengrün; non-metallic UNI; Y83) 991 GT2 RS, just delivered in Zug, Switzerland. This example is the standard model, and sports the standard wheels in satin black, LED headlights, and full bucket seats. Willow Green is a historic VW and Porsche color, having been available for the ‘71-73 Karmann Ghia and Beetle, as well as the ‘71-72 914. While not having seen this color in person, it certainly has a flat tone in these photos that is characteristic of historic colors. On the spectrum of Porsche colors that you will be familiar with, Willow seems to fall in between Gelbgrün and Olive Green. Great to finally see this color on a modern Porsche. Many thanks to one of our readers from Switzerland for the photos of this very special car. What are your thoughts on this example? #PTSRS

Rare Shades of Blue: Congratulations to one of our long time readers from Luxembourg @fastfredddi on his stunning new PTS Voodoo Blue (voodooblau; non-metallic UNI; Z12) 991 GT2 RS. This example sports the Weissach Package, standard wheels in satin black (with incoming magnesium wheels), LED headlights, and full bucket seats. Fred’s Voodoo Blue is joined here by Miami Blue and PTS Yachting Blue examples, all local to Luxembourg. This is a great testament to how blue looks especially good on the 2RS. Already missing last week’s inaugural Rare Shades by seeing this. Many thanks to Fred for the great photos of his car, in good company to add. Which of the three would be your pick? #PTSRS

A PTSRS Exclusive: Presenting the first known PTS Dolphin Grey (delfingrau; non-metallic UNI; W07) 991 GT2 RS, recently delivered to one of our long time readers in France. This example sports the Weissach Package, standard wheels in satin black (with incoming magnesium wheels), LED headlights, and full bucket seats. Dolphin Grey was a Special Color for the ‘64-66 356 range. I’ve included a few photos of Dolphin Grey on other cars, including a 997.2 GT3 RS 3.8 (photos 2-3), 991.2 C4S (photo 4, by @porschebeaverton). The 5th and 6th photos, taken by @autohausmarcus, show a comparison of a Dolphin Grey GTS vs. a Chalk Boxster and a Fashion Grey C4S. As per Marcus, Dolphin Grey is “99% pale light grey and 1% watery emerald/mint”. A color I would love to see in person some time. The owner of this 2RS also owns the PTS Sepia Brown 991.2 GT3 that I featured earlier, suggesting that the theme is historic Porsche colors. What are your thoughts on the Dolphin Grey? Paging @flachtgrau. #PTSRS

Presenting the first and only known PTS Olive Green (olivgrün; non-metallic UNI; 274) 991 GT2 RS, just delivered in Scottsdale, Arizona. This example sports the Weissach Package, magnesium wheels in satin black, LED headlights, and full bucket seats. Olive Green has made a resurgent comeback recently, with several examples of the 991.2 GT3 having been delivered worldwide. Prior to that, we have only seen 1 example of a 991.1 GT3 RS (from Germany - the first modern example sporting Olive Green publicly known), 1 example of a 911 R (from Brazil), and 1 example of a 981 Boxster Spyder (from the U.S.). Many thanks to @autohausmarcus for the great photos of this very special car. What are your thoughts on this example? #PTSRS
