Yup, it looks like Lilac, here's my Lilac example. The shade of purple changes depending on the light.

Sahara Beige in bright morning light





Same car, same color, same location and same camera, a half hour later afterthe sun had come up a little higher in the sky. Sahara Beige does NOT photograph accurately but I think it is a very unique era-correct color.

Petrol Blue Metalic. Its hard to photograph. The color has green in it, in person, but if you take a picture it looks blue.

+1 for tobacco brown. know a guy who had one in that color. it was stunning in sunlight... almost copperish. would like a car that color sometime.

here is a sample of my all-time favorite silver-type color: dolomite gray... not sure if it's factory but love the fact that it's darker. guess we have 'seal gray' on porsche's current offerings...

Anthracite, is this a factory color?

My color is called Anthracite. I thought it was the original color but I think I've seen the 1974 color charts on some thread here. Does anyone know if this is the original color?

}{arlequin, looks like your Dolomite picture....hard to tell from just a picture but it looks close.

very interesting. is yours metallic or just a 'solid' color? the dolomite is metallic. yours doesn't look metallic and seems a shade lighter than the "mc queen gray" that's in the movie... always forget the name of that one.
