Ask any Porsche collector what their favorite color is, and aside from Guards Red, the answer will be PTS. What does PTS stand for? Paint to sample.
A Paint To Sample Porsche 911 is just what it sounds like. If you want a car that is truly yours, the process is not complex. It opens the door to special events, and opportunities to reserve limited-run models before they are announced.
What is Paint To Sample? The Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur program can make it a reality if you can dream it. In the early days, a dealer would note “Sunderwunsch”, or “Special Wishes” on the order form, triggering a direct connection from the salesperson to the factory. Nowadays, Porsche’s Paint To Sample has changed a bit.
What are PTS colors? Well, that’s kind of a loaded question and there are many pre-approved Paint To Sample colors that can be selected, but new ones are also being created with new requests through the Paint To Sample Plus program. While Paint To Sample used to mean that the color was completely bespoke, Porsche now offers around 160 pre-approved Paint To Sample colors that are incredibly unique. The Paint To Sample Plus program is where bespoke creations and wishes from customers are granted. While this route may take longer, the result is a completely personalized paint finish.
How much do PTS colors cost? The pre-approved selection of PTS colors range from $11,430 to $12,830; PTS Plus colors can cost up to $25,660. Sure, this is a substantial increase on the vehicle’s price, but the result is a bespoke creation and PTS Porsches are always hot when on the market.
Due to the incredible volume of Porsche 911 production, Exclusive Manufaktur is located next door to the assembly line. Here the cars enter as rolling chassis to be assembled by hand. Not only will your car arrive to-order, but it will also stand out among the regular production cars. Someone took the time and money to create this masterpiece, so it was probably treated with white gloves. Therefore, it will receive praise from Porsche purists at events around the world.
