    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 !!

    @JakeMacZ These are the original wheels.

  • JakeMacZ 1 day, 15 hoursago

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

    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!

    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) 1 day, 16 hoursago

    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.

    @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) 1 day, 21 hoursago

    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
