Rare Shades Events

Rare Shades is a celebration of Porsches in Paint to Sample or rarely seen colors. This casual but carefully curated and structured three-hour event is the brainchild of 000 Magazine co-founders Alexander Palevsky and Pete Stout, who recognized increasing interest in Porsche’s sports cars as design objects as well as in its Paint to Sample (PTS) program..

For nearly 70 years, PTS has allowed customers to order their Porsches in something outside of the normal color offerings—or a hue matched to a sample provided by the customer. Each Porsche selected for display at Rare Shades is personally curated by 000 and PTSRS.
