Pascha Red Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet Is a Nod to the 356

With Porsche introducing no less than three GT cars (think: 911 GT3, 911 GT2 RS and 911 GT3 RS) and a non-GT special (911 Carrera T) in under a year, one can be forgiven for not paying all that much attention to the standard Carrera models. However, the Carrera Cabriolet we're here to introduce is anything but standard.

In fact, this configuration is the richest we've seen for far, with the sportscar easily qualifying for the role of a Porsche Exclusive rolling statue.

The Cabriolet was recently spotted at Cars & Coffee in Greenville, South Carolina, with its Pascha Red hue sweeping afficionados off their feet.

It's worth mentioning that Pascha Red was one of the special colors used for the Porsche 356 between 1950 and 1952.

Going past the main hue, we have to mention the Sport Design package of the car, as well as the banana-colored calipers, which signal the presence of PCCB (Porsche Carbon Ceramic Brakes) hardware.

And the cabin spec is just as special as the exterior details of the open-air model. To be more precise, Expresso and Cognac leather covers the interior, while the 18-way adaptive seats come with houndstooth inserts, as well as Espresso 911 embroideri and piping.

Even the gear lever for the manual tranny comes in Cognac leather, while the cloth roof of the Zuffenhausen hero comes in brown. Come to think of it, it would be difficult to come up with a more elegant spec for a 991.2.

Returning to the GT specials we mentioned in the intro, we'll remind you that real-world sightings of the 2019 Porsche 911 GT3 RS are not just a fantasy, even though the track special has yet to make its Geneva debut - the move is scheduled for next week.

In fact, last time we discussed such a matter, we showed you a Stormtrooper spec GT3 RS that had been shared by Porsche brand ambassador Mark Webber.


Here is a very special one. A brand new PTS Pascha Red (pascharot; non-metallic UNI; W15) 991.2 C2 Cabriolet, shared with us from a recent Cars & Coffee in Greenville, South Carolina by local reader @carolinacarspotter. Pascha Red, a color I am featuring for the first time, was one of the Special Colors (sonderfarbe) for the 356 from 1950-52. It is very evident that a lot of thought went into this build. Exterior wise, it wears the SportDesign front fascia, ceramic brakes, and painted rear apron. Inside, the natural leather interior in Espresso/Cognac is highlighted by houndstooth inserts on the Adaptive 18-way seats with piping and 911 embroidery in Espresso. The Cognac leather of the manual gear lever and boot is possible by checking the “Customization Package, Manual Gear Lever” option. Otherwise the standard color is black, even with all the other interior leather options checked. Note the cabriolet roof in brown as well. Many thanks again to Phil for the photos. What are your thoughts on this example? #PTSRS
