If you look in the Porsche Redbook, though, it'll tell you what colors were standard in which years.

FWIW, your car looks a lot like mine.

edit: Don't forget that even if you were mixed up a batch of "Venetian Blue," it might not match your car due to 20 years of wear-and-tear on the paint. Here's a blurry shot of my paint code decal:

I know this sounds gay as hell but I think I love you I found it this morning right where you said it would be. I knew it had to be there somewhere. When I spoke with Porsche last week she told me paint codes L999 are custom match paint but I told her this would be the dumbest thing Porsche could have done not putting that code somewhere in the car.

So it seems its called Slate blue metallic L661/X6
