539 Weissgold Metallic
A silver base with subtle gold brown elements for a very rich
appearance. The color appears to change, dependent on lighting, from the
warmer elements to the more silver and is a darn hard color to describe (and
I'm an artist by trade).
Porsche called this color, I believe, "Weissgold Metallic" -
"WeiBgold" in German - POR 539, which would perhaps translate as
white-gold or silver-gold.
I any event, there are moments when one would call it silver, but a glance
at the silver wheels indicates immediately that it is not silver but a warmer tone. Multiple clear coats were applied by the factory.
This was a bit of a special shark in that it was ordered (although a 1985 S, which all had the front and rear
black spoilers in place) with no drill marks and no spoilers for the cleanest look possible.
