Hi There

I saw this parked in HK this evening. Its an unusual car being a manual. Also is it a widebody?, I do not think so.

I loved the colour which looked like a slateish grey. These pictures were taken at night under mixed lighting, so are probably useless for working the colour out, but you never know.

Looks similar to the sports classic albeit a bit darker under those lights.
Would think repaint rather than wrap but don't really know. I quite like it actually.

Looks quite similar to the "Man Of Chile" colour, apparently a derivative of a shade available on the 356...

NB with a kit and a WB front PU.

Aftermarket repaint I'd say.

Agree with others, looks like paint , the car sporting nb rear pu- wb front pu with" aerokit turbo" additional lower section plus aerokit 1 sideskirts. Definitely a "fast body" model👌, also noticed racing recaro style fixed buckets ,perhaps an rs steering wheel and light coloured( maybe grey) instrument faces?
Like the guys attitude to mods✌

I'd say it's Porsche Nardo Grey. Could be a full paint or full wrap. It certainly looks different.

I also think it's Nardo. It looks okay.

This in a similar vein looks much better http://ruf-automobile.de/en/modell/ruf-turbor-2/

deffo a repaint. I used to live in HK and saw many 993's repainted to either another official colour or some other mashup. Most likely a tip converted to a manual too if a HK car, but could be a genuine manual if its been imported. HK 993's are generally in pretty poor mechanical condition due to lack of maintenance or proper use. I test drove a couple when in the market and they could barely rev over 5k. There are however some enthusiasts who genuinely look after their cars and know them inside out.

I hope mine is not one of the poor mechanical conditions as you mentioned Wink
