I’ve kept this topic to myself for a long time. My plan has been to build a car using this color for years now. In fact, it is still my plan (someday).
I take note of various things that impress me and keep a folder on my computer called “Inspiration”. It might be something as simple as a color I like or a material. It could be the shape of a fender, or the way a custom interior is put together. The fact is that certain things inspire me and I like to remember them and integrate into my builds that very essence of where my inspiration started. For example on my S2000 some of the style came from my desire to resurrect the Top Secret gold demo car concept that I loved so much+ my love of Mana-P’s (MS-R) graphics on the Top Secret V8 G35 (version 2 of the graphics). So I told Mana-P what I liked as a starting point for our collaboration on my car and together he and I came up with a design that I felt was even better than what he did on the Top Secret G35 (if you look, it is still similar on the hood and the doors but more style was added).
I saw this Porsche at SEMA perhaps 3 or 4 years ago and immediately fell in love with it. Champion put the car together and did a phenomenal job. But really what made me fall in love with the car is the paint color choice. Pictures simply do not do it justice but I’m glad I at least have those to remember it by. It was one of those cars and color combination that just left a lingering impression on me. I find myself years later still waiting for the perfect project to break out this color with a different spin on it. The use of this color and carbon fiber accents is absolutely perfect on this Porsche.Â Classy all the way. With the right car and the right lines, this color can and should be revived once again. I hope to be the next one to do it, but now that I’m putting this out there you can go ahead with it too if you like.
I realize some of you may not think the color lives up to my own personal hype of it. True, the pictures don’t do it justice. But trust me, in person this car in this color is absolute perfection.
Please excuse the first and last pictures…they’re HUGE. Those are the raw images off of my camera from SEMA years back.
