Green With Envy — Porsche 911 Carrera S
Porsche owners love expressing their personalities with the colour of their cars, and the proof in the pudding is the rainbow-like palette the iconic German sports car brand puts on offer — even as standard colours.
But some colours stand out from the rest, and green in particular has the distinct honour of being Ferry Porsche’s personal favourite. Even today, Dr Wolfgang Porsche often specifies some of his cars in his father’s favourite rich, natural hue.
What’s vogue at the moment is green cars with earth-contrasted interiors. In fact, the movement is so strong that the hashtag #GreenOverTan has garnered a strong following across many social media platforms worldwide. Beyond the motoring world, the colour green has also become a favourite among watch manufactures who have debuted several timepieces in green like the new Patek Philippe Nautilus 5711A or the Grand Seiko SBGW264 — both have green dials.
Porsche Singapore brings that hashtag movement to the fore with its Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur show car — a 911 Carrera S. This striking car is finished in a seductive and sophisticated Aventurine Green Metallic, complemented by a two-tone Atacama Beige and Black Interior.
Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur is the brand’s exclusive personalisation service, with more than 700 aesthetic and technical customisation options across all model series — a proud blend of creative imagination, engineering precision and immaculate quality.
Highly-trained craftsmen from Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur devote their effort and time to fulfilling individual customer requests and specifications — slowly, painstakingly, and by hand.
From an embossed crest in a headrest, to an exterior colour finished in your favourite hue — with Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur, the sky is the limit when it comes to creating a Porsche with your own personal signature.
This 911 was created with bespoke enhancements that are a nod to the classic 911s. The staggered 20/21-inch Carrera Exclusive Design wheels call back to the nostalgic Fuchs-styled rims of the 1960s, while its exterior trims are re-finished in matte aluminium for a classic look.
In addition, the decorative racing stripes as well as Porsche’s side script decals in silver channel racing 911s of yore, adding to the sophistication and detail.
Inside the car, the Heritage Design Package option features multiple Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur elements that create an interior ambience that seduces you to come in and indulge.
Notable highlights include Porsche crests embossed on the seat headrests, posh OLEA club leather on all tactile panels, tanned using olive leaves which were selected for their luxurious ageing qualities. The centre seat console is finished in Corduroy, another material that offers elegance and refinement.
The instrument cluster on the 911 features the traditional tachometer front and centre, surrounded by two digital display screens, made extra special with white hands and scale markings contrasted with green numbers to evoke the original 356. The Sport Chrono stopwatch on the dashboard is paired up with the same classic colour scheme.
To add to the finishing touches of the classic 911 plaque on the passenger console, a Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur signature is placed on the centre console, marking out this 911 as one that is truly special.
The 911 Porsche Carrera S is an exemplary model of #GreenOverTan, and with the limitless customisation possibilities that customers can tap into with Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur, it’s undoubtedly a beguiling automobile marvel for the senses to behold.
