Porsche has launched a special 911 Carrera GTS for Thailand. It celebrates the company’s three-decade presence in the country. The car is only available in one of seven colours, paying homage to Thai culture and taking inspiration from the country’s colours of the week.
Porsche made the seven colours through its Paint-to-Sample programme. Each day of the week has a corresponding colour in Thailand. They are:

The 911 Carrera GTS 30 Years Porsche Thailand Edition features other bespoke touches besides the exterior paint. The standard 20- and 21-inch Turbo S wheels are two-tone – black and the car’s corresponding body colour. The Porsche crest on the wheel centre caps adds a splash of colour as the automaker paints the brake callipers black for a stealthy look.
Porsche pairs its new exclusive exterior colours with high-gloss contrast finishes on the front apron, side window sills, rear apron inlays, rear lid, and exterior mirrors. It even features a special “30 Years of Porsche Thailand Edition” plaque on the B-pillars. At the back, five slats over the engine are painted in red, white, and blue like the Thai flag, while a contemporary 911 logo sits below the Porsche lettering.

Inside, the special 911s receive contrasting trim pieces finished in the corresponding exterior colour. The seats have black corduroy inlays and Pebble grey piping, which Porsche also uses to accentuate the upper parts of the dash, the door panels, and the rear side trim against the black leather interior. Each seat features a unique anniversary logo on the headrests.
Porsche put all the colours into one car in a one-of-a-kind Inspiration Car. The automaker unveiled the GTS it at a gala event celebrating the company’s 30-year history in the country. The Inspiration Car exhibits all seven colours used on the special-edition models. Porsche will display it at its booth throughout the 44th Bangkok International Motor Show 2023.
