The PTS is now available on every single car in the Porsche lineup including the Cayenne and . also available with Taycan Recently added, the automaker confirmed on Monday.


This is partly made possible by the recent expansion of the brand’s plant in Zuffenhausen where the 718, 911 and Taycan are produced.

The four-door model has a capacity of about four pts cars per day, although this may soon expand to the Taycan. Going with PTS color does not take any extra time in the production process.

Almost all available PTS colors are historical colors used on previous Porsche models. Some were offered over entire model lines, while colors such as Rubystone or Acid Green were the signature hues for specific models. The 911 and 718 in the catalog have over 100 different PTS colors, while the Taycan has 65 colors and the Cayenne, Macan and Panamera are offered with over 50. Going with the PTS color costs $11,430 for most Porsches, though that number rises to $12,830. GT Cars and 911 Turbo.

For those who want something outside the pre-approved PTS range—say a paint color from another automaker or something completely custom—Porsche also offers Paint to Sample Plus. Available on every model except the Cayenne, the PTS Plus lets customers bring a paint sample to Porsche to see if it can be changed to a specific color. Each color has to go through a feasibility test, which can take up to 11 months, and luckily Porsche will cover the cost if it becomes unable to produce the desired color. It’s a nice gesture, as the PTS Plus ranges from $22,860 on ‘regular’ cars to $25,660 on GT models and the 911 Turbo.
