Dark green 944 in Dayton, Ohio?

As I was leaving work today I spotted a dark green 944 going north on Harshman Road near Valley St. Does it belong to anyone on here? I've never seen one in that color before. It looked pretty nice. If it's yours e-mail me. I'm trying to get as many 944's as I can for a cruise in the spring.

I agree....dark green 944s are rare, i don't think that color came from the factory. I've seen one green car here in Lexington, KY.....not too far away from you all

12 years ago I restored a 81 Z-28 and had it painted Porsche Forest Green Metalic. It was from a late 80's color book. It was a Dupont 2 stage paint # K9133L. Awesome color! Still have a pint left. If I had more cash when my car was painted I would have changed the color to this. One the downside the dark green color became popular a few years ago but back in the day it was rare.

Mine is an '87 Turbo,Dark green LOY5Z paint code"Nautic",which was made in '86-'87 only,or was it '87-'88 ??? Anyway that car is from Ohio but hasn't been there since last fall. You're right there aren't many and I'm not sure if ANY have a cashmere beige interior like mine,or are mostly black.

I would love to see pics of the green/tan color combo as well....I bet that would look awesome. I really like the beige interior on the 944....a welcome relief from the typical black.

I think the rarest 944 color may be the lemon yellow that was only offered in 87 (or was it 88?). I really like the way that color looks on a 944.

That's the color. Looks black at night but looks awesome in the sun. Does it have metalic in it?

Yes it's definately a metallic,seems to have a touch of dark blue but predominately green. These pics were taken on an overcast day so it looks more like black as you noted,and after dark it's black. When the sun's out there's no mistaking the deep green. I'd prefer the Arctic Silver with the same interior,but couldn't pass this one up, 28,008 mi.and literally showroom inside and out. Thanks for your interest,and the new photo transfer lesson, Jim H
