Porsche has announced in the past few hours that it has expanded its famous Paint to Sample pole program, so soon even more interesting road cars will arrive.
The German automaker has announced that 160 new colors will be available through the program. Anyone looking for a custom color can create it using the Paint to Sample Plus program .
Porsche Paint to Sample
The number of standard colors available depends on the model. For example, over 100 colors are offered for the Porsche 911 and 718 , while more than 50 are available for the Panamera , Macan and Cayenne. The 100% electric Porsche Taycan , on the other hand, offers 65 color choices.
A new color mixing desk was built at the Zuffenhausen plant earlier this year, which made it possible to further expand the Paint to Sample program. These changes will allow Porsche to increase the production capacity of the 911s from around five cars a day to around 20.
The Plus version of the German company’s program offers greater customization for the user. The latter provides a sample to its dealership who sends it to Porsche where it undergoes extensive quality and feasibility tests. This test can take up to 11 months. Prices for most Paint to Sample Plus models are $ 22,860 (€ 20,246), but go up to $ 25,660 (€ 22,726) for the 911 Turbo, 911 GT3 and 718 GT.
