Lighter Green 2018 Porsche 911 GT3 Has Matching Interior

There are certain Paint to Sample shades whose English name perfectly reflects their German moniker, but the one we have here certainly isn't among them. That's because the color covering this 2018 911 GT3 is dubbed Hellgrun or Lighter Green.

Made famous by the 1970s 911s, this has been approved for the 991, 718, Macan and Panamera under the names mentioned above.

Interestingly, the hue has also made its way inside the 991.2-gen GT3 we have here, as you'll be able to notice by using the swipe feature of the Instagram post below.

As for how the color compared to Mint Green, another PTS jewel, Lighter Green comes with fewer blue undertones. Of course, those who prerfer their Porschas in less extrovert shades will steer clear of both hues.

Now, all this 991.2 GT car talk has brought us in the mood for... even more adventures of the sort. And this is a brilliant occasion to remind you that we recently showed you another two beasts of the sort doing their thing on the Nurburgring.

We'll start with the 2018 Porsche 911 GT2 RS, which still holds the Nurburgring production car lap record thanks to its 6:47 cronograph number. Nevertheless, the stunts we're talking about don't involve the official Green Hell adventures of the rear-engined animals, with these having taken place during a private track day. It's worth mentioning that the event was organized by Manthey Racing, a team owned by Porsche.

As for the second Neunelfer we're discussing, this is the freshest one of them all, namely the 2019 911 GT3 RS. And the track animal recently attacked the Nordschleife in the hands of Kevin Estre, the works driver who set the official 6:56 lap time of the toy. In fact, it was all part of a Nurburgring taxi scheme, with the funds raised via the action going to charity.


Congratulations to @gt2urbo on taking delivery of the first known PTS Hellgrün / Lighter Green (227) Porsche. Hellgrün was made famous by the 911s of the 1970s. Perhaps most notably, it was warn by a 1974 IROC 911 RSR and 1973 Carrera RS 2.7. As for naming, Hellgrün was approved for PTS for the 991, 718, Macan, and Panamera platforms as “Hellgrün / Lighter Green" (not to be confused with "Light Green / Birch Green"). It, however, appears to be the same shade as the former “Hellgrün / Jade Green.” This looks like another Rubystone / Ruby Star situation. For those wondering how this color compares to Mint Green, Hellgrün has fewer blue undertones. @stickercity just installed stripes and script and installed full PPF on this car. Cheers for the photos, guys! Special thanks to @racperformance who ordered the car and @veltracon who helped secure the car and buyer. Swipe left for additional photos of the GT3, RSR, and Carrera RS 2.7.
