More and more examples of the 2020 Porsche 911 are being brought to the world these days, which means we can regularly feast our eyes on various hues. And the one that brought us here today is special, since, for instance, this is new for the 992.
The shade that covers this Neunelfer is called Aventurine Green and while we've talked about it before, this is the first time when we get to see it in the flesh.

At least in this showroom light, Aventurine Green seems to make the rear-engined machine look a bit like a chameleon, while highlighting the lavish side of the machine.

After all, the eight generation of the Porsche 911 means the sportscar now comes with plush features, chief among which is the Wet driving mode. Sure, other machines pack similar goodies, but this one can be automatically activated.

In fact, here's how it all works, in Porsche's words: "The system uses acoustic sensors in the front wheel housings to recognise sprayed-up splash water, and in this way can detect wetness on the road. If the driver activates this mode, the Porsche Stability Management (PSM), Porsche Traction Management (PTM), aerodynamics, optional Porsche Torque Vectoring (PTV) Plus, and drive responsiveness are adapted to the conditions in such a way as to guarantee the best possible driving stability. From 90km/h, the rear spoiler is adjusted to maximum downforce, the cooling air flaps open, the accelerator pedal characteristic is flatter, and PSM Off or Sport mode can no longer be activated,"

Oh, and there's another shade that catches our eye when it comes to the Porsche 911 sitting in front of us, namely the yellow used for the brake calipers. Of course, this means the machine is fitted with the optional carbon-ceramic brakes.

Note that these don't offer track day assets, such as improved fading resistance.
