Taking inspiration from this thread, I just ordered a Mamba Green 4S with Bordeaux red interior and mission-E wheels. The dealership called it "unusual' ... but hey , nice to be bold...

Now the wait....

Long time waiting but finally took delivery yesterday. The "watermelon" combination really works and has already had incredible response from everyone who has seen it.

with difficulty! It was bad timing, happened to be heading out of town for a week just as it was ready for pick up! At least I won’t be sad to be coming back from this vacation!

Joined the club with 2 Mamba Green Cross Turismo's. Well, to be exact - I have a CT 4S on order (delay approx. 5 months so far). And as a stop-gap I managed to bag a cancelled order CT 4S which i collected yesterday. Not the spec I want, but will sell this when 'my' carb eventually gets here.... Or..... start saying that is better than none.. Watch this space for a 'For Sale' post...

Chilli is finally here! Picked up from Bend, OR today. Stopping over in the Columbia River Gorge on my drive back to Seattle. Amazing drive from Bend to here! Hopefully get some nicer scenic photos soon.

Looks amazing! Almost same spec I’m planning on ordering.

2 questions:

How long ago did you place your order?

How does the mamba look irl compared to what you expected? I’m stuck between mamba/frozenblue and can’t decide!

Placed order at start of July. It was the last '21 allocation and it froze almost immediately after I ordered. Delivery was originally scheduled for 10/1 (Track Your Dream was fairly accurate), but I was out of town for a week and then there was a recall which delayed it for another couple of weeks.

Better! In some pictures it seems a very bright/"puke" coloured green, but in reality the colour is more sophisticated. In overcast cloudy weather (hello Seattle winter) it seems like more of a darker green. Really pops at golden hour. All these Porsche paints really seem to change in different weather!

I had reservations about the green (and kept wondering if I'd regret it) but when I saw it in person I definitely didn't regret it. I'd recommend seeing one in person if you have a chance. Frozen Blue was also my second choice, but glad I went for the green - though you'd be happy with both.

Oh and my girlfriend, who was quite annoyed at me for ordering a "bright green car", said - and I quote - "wow, it looks actually really good in person". So it's approved.
