Now you can match your house to your Porsche, too

How to best celebrate the 75th anniversary of the first Porsche to hit the road?

How about paint? House paint, to be more specific.

Porsche has teamed up with paint brand Backdrop to offer four iconic colors from Porsche’s history for your house:

  • Irish Green: First seen in 1964 on a 356C sports car, the dark hunter green shade is also one of the first colors to grace the Porsche 911. It’s a color as timeless as the sports car itself.
  • Speed Yellow: This vibrant yellow first appeared on the Porsche 911 in 1991. Not for the shy or Sunday driver, the color is distinctly tied to the sports car and the Porsche brand. 
  • Ruby Star: Dating back to 1991 and seen on Porsche 911, 928 and 944 models over the years, Ruby Star is a deep magenta red that is distinct, bold and joyous.
  • Riviera Blue: An electric bright blue, the head-turning and audacious color was developed in 1994 and has been seen on the 911, 928, and 968 models. 

The collection is available now through Backdrop and will only be offered through the end of the year. Prices start at $75 for a single gallon.
