German/Reference name: lindgrün
Paint code: 226
Models and Years:
Linden Green (226/lindgrün) is a historic Porsche color that dates back to 1972 when it was a special order body color on the 911. Linden Green has, perhaps unusually, gone by a few different names. When it first came out it was called Lime Green, but later it would famously be known as Chartreuse. Over the years it would also be called Lind Green before finally being called by its current official paint to sample name, Linden Green. These name changes have led to some amount of confusion, but Porsche has made it easy: PTS Linden Green has kept the same paint code that it originally had almost 50 years ago, 226! Linden Green was only offered for two years back when it first came out, but following its initial usage it would not be forgotten. Some might recall having seen this color on an epic 997 generation 911 GT3 RS 4.0. In 2015, Linden Green went paint to sample on the 991 generation 911. This was due to the efforts of California Rennlist member Green Lantern who worked with Porsche Marin to have Porsche conduct feasibility testing on the color. According to Green Lantern, this was a process that required over 14 months- after the samples were submitted!
