Its Time For A Tetanus Shot!
Growing up on the beach, rust and I have been feuding since before I could drive. Corroded Carreras are a common sight here in Florida, so someone chose to replicate the look in their latest build. Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur has debuted a Paint-to-Sample patina for cars that need to look the part.
It is true that the factory will build a car exactly to your liking. So to show the world what they are capable of, the skilled painters replicated rust with an airbrush above the car’s base coat. The effects were then covered in a matte-finish clear to protect their work. Normally such work doesn’t warrant a video, but their YouTube channel is blowing up with the audacity of the work.
Should you choose to set your new Porsche apart from all the rest, it will add a few thousand dollars to the window sticker. Perhaps the best aspect of this project is how many Automotive Journalists fell for it. Porsche has trolled the world on April Fools Day, so who says Germans have a punctuated sense of humor? Bravo Porsche! We hope your are ready for more tomfoolery today, to get your laughs right here!
