Thanks! I actually realized after getting the Amethyst purple model, that I have all unique colored 964s, which is why I took the picture in the first place. The colors weren't planned, just worked out that way, then again a lot of these are only available in 1 color from GT Spirit at least. 8-)

The only 964 I have not pictured here is my AA 964 Carrera RS in Mint Green, that would fit nicely here.

That's perfect! The Mint RS would look great in there.

Refresh my memory...the Guards Red Coupe is what exactly? I'm assuming its by GT-S? I read on another forum that Norev is releasing a 964 C4 with the D90 rims...the 1st 964 model released by Porsche. Might be worth getting.

The red one (actually supposed to be Indian Red, not Guards Red) is a Carrera RS Club Sport or at least that's what GT Spirit is calling the model, but it's more commonly known as the N/GT, a striped out more track focused version of the Carrera RS.

I've heard about the Norev 964, I am definitely interested.

I'm sure that looks fantastic without livery. What color is it now? What color is it going to be?

Man I searched far and wide for this pic I saw once of a silver one with white modern white wheels but now I can't find it.

But basically imagine a modernized 320i like this:

repainted into this silver

It's a Mercedes silver, I have the paint already, just been too busy to get to it

I tried spraying it with Tamiya TS83 a couple years back before I knew anything about painting and didn't realize that colour was not to be clear coated, so unfortunately that has to be redone properly. I think silver will give the body a nice muscularity
