    @ChequeredFlag Thanks!

  • ChequeredFlag (seller) 5 months, 1 weekago

    Yes, the paint is all original. Meter readings between 3 and 6 are within factory paint spec. Anything over could be suspicious. Anything under, it's probably been overly buffed but still qualifies as original, I suppose. Hope that helps.

  • Dozer (registered bidder) 5 months, 1 weekago

    Thanks for adding the paint readings, but they don't answer the question if the paint is all original. Please advise. Thanks.

  • ChequeredFlag (seller) 5 months, 1 weekago

    A video has been added to the bottom of the listing. Quick walk around, interior, start, and top working included. Here for any last questions or comments. Thanks! - Alex

    My 991 Turbo S, bought from a pcarmarket auction 2 months ago, has the same color combo with black wheels. Falling in love with the color every time I look at it. Definitely not boring as regular gold. Great color! Glws

    @dennisconnie2 They are factory wheels. The owner had the dealer refinish them. No window sticker, but we do have a copy of the MSRP with options. Thanks.

  • dennisconnie2 (registered bidder) 5 months, 1 weekago

    I have the very last 997 made for the US market a 2012 Carrera S Red/tan. Anyway are those wheel factory? Do you have the original window sticker?
    Thanks

    I have the same car. They are rare in this color. 2012 911 S cab, but mine has a black top, black interior and a 7 manual with the double parallel wheels in original color. Love it. Can't go anywhere without people wanting to know the color and telling me how beautiful and unusual it is. GLWS

    Just what an 80 year old guy (me) needs to brighten my days. And I am getting too old to shift for myself, so the auto tranny is my choice. Consider me "shiftless" but willing to spend my remaining money on a car to last me the next 15-20 years, and not become "electrified" with and EV. Grandkids can wait for this'n !!

    Yes it really is stunning person. I just had the wheel powder coated in Matte Black. Also pLastidipped the mirrors and and grill in matte black. Set it off nicely.

    @JakeMacZ These are the original wheels.

  • JakeMacZ 5 months, 2 weeksago

    Are the original wheels available? The bronze wheels are offsetting.

  • INOV8 (registered bidder) 5 months, 2 weeksago

    @ClarkD1 I believe you, this car drew me in for sure, I bet it is absolutely stunning in person.

    Thanks for the nice comments, so far. This really seems like a one of a kind spec and is easily one of the more unique color combinations we've had. Might take some time to grow on people but that's the fun of it. Anyway, here for any more questions if anyone has any. Should be getting a video and underside photos done early next week. Good luck!

  • ClarkD1 (registered bidder) 5 months, 2 weeksago

    I have a coupe same year and model in the Lime Gold, everytime and I mean every time I drive someone stops me to tell me how beautiful the color and car are. Most looks of anY car I’ve ever owned.

  • INOV8 (registered bidder) 5 months, 2 weeksago

    Have always disliked gold cars, maybe because when I was young it was "old people color" and now that I am old because it is old people color; boring, mundane, just never liked gold cars. This car....something so special about this spec; WOW, absolutely love it! This might be the car that converts me to a gold car fan.

  • shuajess (registered bidder) 5 months, 2 weeksago

    @jbauto It all subjective but I believe the color combo is perfectly done. Those wheels are a darker shade of the exterior and although bold, are very tastefully done.

  • jbauto (registered bidder) 5 months, 2 weeksago

    Love the Spec. Almost. The car is gold but the wheels are Bronze gold. Clash. I would paint the wheels to match the car or Root beer to match the roof. Just a thought. GL
