The trend of customised car paintwork is
becoming popular as a way to stand out

Netherlands — How do you make a 997-Type Porsche 911 Carrera 4S stand out in a crowd?

Do what one Dutch owner did and give it an army camo paint job.

We're not sure if it comes with a military-issue interior with infra-red HUD or whether there's counter measures such as smoke screens, or radar jamming equipment, but it sure stands out in the parking lot.

There's not much to say about this unique take on exterior style other than it looks different. 

The 911 Carrera's shape is somewhat shadowed by the camouflage motif, but overall it seems to work.

It doesn't have an overly glossy finish [matte perhaps? - Ed], and if you've enough cash to pay for a Porsche 911 Carrera 4S you can probably afford to make sure your individualistic paint scheme looks this professional, which is what has occurred here.

More and more we are seeing customer demand for different paint schemes, especially in the sports car market.

Here in Australia Ford and FPV started the decal trend, by offering stylishly appointed sticker motifs on its models, and both Holden and HSV now offer similar decal packages.

Not long ago Volvo released a range of bizarre coverings or 'wraps' that covered every inch of its C30 hatchback, including white and pink clouds, rainbows, and there was also some camouflage finishes too.

The days of going into the new car dealership and asking for "the red one" could be numbered as drivers becoming increasingly involved with how their car looks in order to make a fashion statement and show off their personality to other road users.

We're currently investigating a Wombat motif (complete with marsupial pouch) for the office runabout, a clapped-out 1992 Holden Barina that sometimes misfires.
