Nice! What color is that? Seems a bit purpler than mine but the lighting is tricky.

It is the lighting. The color changes as you walk around the car. It is Pallisander Metallic (Rosewood metallic). It is very hard to photograph.

Unsure of the color, po said it was Platinum, but COA says Paint to Sample and it doesn't look like other Platinums. No paint codes on car or paperwork. Any ideas what metallic color this could be?

The PO of our car had the mocha brown topped with 84 or 86 Porsche Platinum in an attempt to give it a Modern Turbo Carrera look. I joke by telling people "gold to you and I" which is truly disturbing since I have a well proven theory on senior drivers and gold colored cars...........


Local automotive paint supply matched up the color by referencing a Porsche color book when I needed some touch up. I honestly would like to get it back to OEM.

I've also read conflicting info stating that the 78SC (12/77)was produced with the Targa bar in stainless as well as the door handles and window trim. Currently ours is mat-black. I think the mocha brown would really look good with bright work.

Sorry about mediocre quality mobile phone photos.. We didn't have proper camera with us
Both cars are gorgeous! I want your brothers setup with the polished 7's & 8's

Nice car cpa. Classic ext/int color combo. I'm using mine as a daily driver too. I love the Moss Grun as well, very deep, depending on the light it's almost black.
