Wink Ultimate Mocha Brown Thread

Holy cow.

Everyone with a flashy color gets a special thread.

How about the guys and gals driving turd brown retro 70 cruisers with plush carpets.

By this time everyone with common sense may have repainted them but who knows............................................

I've seen some very attractive turd brown cars. They are quite unusual and unique. Perhaps that's where their appeal lies...

Brown is one of the best colors Porsches came in.

I love the brown

I was searching some past threads and brown was taking a beating

Lots of talk about the only way to sell one is to repaint it

Curious what still out there

Its not mocha, but definitely brown. I love the color. As a matter of fact, if I were to buy a new 997, I would order in it brown.

Anyone who was in high school in the 1970's will always come over to chat. The younger kids just laugh.

My current 911 is Mocha Brown. My previous one was Smoky Quartz Metallic. Both are "brown" colors. Both are truly stunning.

I'd rather drive a diaper brown ratty 911 than any G35, 350z or whatever other plastic guido-mobile the kids currently favor.

This one isn't mocha, obviously, but a fairly rare color called Tobacco Metallic. Since the car is for sale, any of you that don't have a brown car could have one soon...

I think brown may have come full circle, the other day I was parking and a kid on a skateboard cruised by and said "sick car, sick color"

Tobacco is such an awesome color. When I'm ready to step into a 930 one day, I hope I can find one in this color or a similar shade.

Well, they only offered this color for two years, 1979 and 1980. Not many 1980 models in the US (except this one) so your odds aren't good.

I think you should buy this one now, while you have the chance.
