Not open to buying a top of another color and painting it to match your car?

That is a unicorn! Or a Peacock...

This is djomlas car in a thread he posted in 2006. I believe it is Jade or Ocean Green Metallic. He sold the car in 2009 I think. Great color and with a hardtop, even better. I think RandallNieghbour has the right idea for you. GL.

You can see my grey hardtop/green car in the general discussion. I'd agree that with your color the two should be the same color. It's a fabulous color.

In my town we have a Porsche/Audi specialist body shop that quoted me about $1000 to paint mine. They did absolutely perfect work for me on front bumper and speedster humps and I wouldn't consider anybody else should I change my mind about my top and would think their price correct. Quite a bit of disassembly/ reassembly is required. I'd recommend against a general painter and recommend a Porsche specialist for sure.

Maybe this will make the notion of $1K for a hardtop plus $1K for paint feel a little better ...

... here is a listing of all the 986 hardtops still available new from Porsche--all about $4600.
