Porsche 997 Carrera 4 GTS – Amethyst

A Porsche 997 Carrera GTS is definitely a darling in our garage. So when we managed to get hold of an Amethyst Metallic with special options ab work from Zuffenhausen, it was big for us – and it still is.

Firstly, let’s talk color. Amethyst was developed for the Porsche 964 in 1992 when the Porsche design team once again wanted to make a color that would pop and excite in different ways. Colors that were both damn cool and naturally beautiful for the design lines of the time. Porsche had shown, months ago, a 964 RS in Sternrubin which was received by the Porsche elite with a standing applause. Earlier on, the Rubinrot Metallic had shown its worth on 911 Turbos and the 964 as well – both colors had a very limited production time and this 997 has a bit of both within the paint job.

Back to this 997 Carrera 4 GTS. In August 2011, the Porsche design team decides to make it possible to order the 997 GTS in a new version of the legendary Amethyst metallic color. The Amethyst color option was only available until February 2012 (only 6 months) and it was never available at any of the 997’s again – the color first returned as PTS Exclusive on the 991 GT3 RS in 2015.

In the 6 months in 2011/2012, according to our information, only 37 997 GTS’s in the world succeeded in being painted in the Amethyst color in Zuffenhausen.

The next point on the configuration is unusual and it’s the seriously exclusive leather interior in Sand Beige. In addition to being carried throughout the cabin – down to the smallest details, a 977 GTS’s are usually born with leather/alcantara seats. This one got its own recipe in Zuffenhausen and is therefore supplied with seats in full leather. In addition, RS Spyder rims with center locks, Sport Chrono Plus, adaptive sports seats and the extended GTS exterior options colored in Amethyst. A great amount of other options appear in the car’s “birth certificate”. The 997 GTS Amethyst with Sand Beige was, as far as we know, only built in 3 copies in total.

We found the car at Porsche Zentrum Bensberg in August 2017, where the car was looked after and maintained according to all Porsche AG regulations. Since then it has remained in our permanent collection – right up until now, when it’s ready for adventures with a new owner who wants a very special 911. The car can drive you to Sicily over the Alps in pure joy or be a regular driver for your weekend trips or daily. The potential for this GTS to have a good incline in 997 value over time, is certainly possible.
