    Unique 997 turbo...

    ...here:

    http://walters.porschedealer.com/new_cars/info.php?inventoryid=276468

    I like Meteor Grey a lot, but interior...

    Re: Unique 997 turbo...

    Wow, way to ruin a perfectly good 997TT!

    Re: Unique 997 turbo...

    BTW, did you notice something on this pic?



    When you choose XSB - Sport Seat Backs in Leather you also apparently get sidebags moduls in interior color as well! I saw natural grey 997S with XSB option few days ago and sidebags moduls were in natural grey as they are on this pic in cocoa...

    Re: Unique 997 turbo...

    I have no clue how that works. I know Rami has Alu Look seat backs, but Cocoa sidebag covers. Dan L has Natural Brown seat backs, but Volcano Grey (I think. Maybe Alu Look) sidebag covers.


    By the way, I noticed this dealer also had a garish 2006 C2S with full red trim inside. No wonder they can't seem to get rid of it. They also have a 2007 cab with terracotta / full alu look trim that might be a hard sell as well. Are Riverside, CA residents devoid of any taste, or do they let blind people drive?

    Re: Unique 997 turbo...

    I think this one is option code "CFH" (Cry For Help). Looks just as good as the "Sickamore." The blue belts really hit the mark.

    Re: Unique 997 turbo...

    lol, nice PS.

    Re: Unique 997 turbo...

    It's new since begin of this modelyear.

    NOT necessarily. Mine came in with the side bag covers in abs and natural brown rear ass seats.

    Need some context on Riverside (and the LA region generally) ....LA region is some 18MM popul; a far more blue-collar/working-class/industrial/many little widget factory cos. economy than places like Chic/NYC ....so think Cleveland/Detroit, etc w/some palm trees and much better weather ....maybe 20-30 guys on LA's Westside (the narrow BevHills to Brentwood corridor ) w/some decent taste in cars...but places like OC/SanFernVy, etc are sketchy at best ....and Riverside (w/its cheaper tract houses than those of NwptCoast ) is from where the support staff for the tech cos/lt industrial cos. of OC commute on the legendary 80 mi LA roundtrip commutes on those famous fwys (most of LA's Westside has a <<10 mi commute to office in BevHills involving no fwys)....

    Given the demographics/tastes of the typical shoppers one would expect at a P dealer in Riverside, this car is fairly well-spec'd for those "tastes"....

    Re: Unique 997 turbo...

    ...They're also still sportin' 4 '06 Cayenne Turbo S's.

    Re: Unique 997 turbo...

    what a disaster combo....

    Re: Unique 997 turbo...

    Thanks for the input. So, is this the dealership for those, errm, actresses and, errm, independent movie producers from the San Fernando Valley? That's the kind of customers I had in mind for that Turbo.

    Noticed a lot of chrome wheels on their Boxsters and Caymans as well, but very few SC, nav or full leather. Interesting order of priorities.

    Re: Unique 997 turbo...

    i think the interior would be really nice without all the damn wood ...the yellow isnt bad at all...

    Re: Unique 997 turbo...

    Geez, even the dealer lists the car as 'automatic'.....when will they ever learn?

    Re: Unique 997 turbo...

    Looks like vomit!!!

    Re: Unique 997 turbo...

    A few threads ago a member posted almost the same interior of his new car which everybody likes (apparently) , here it is vomit

    These guys have similar views over the other car:
    http://www.6speedonline.com/forums/showthread.php?t=73382

    At least these cars are unique.

    Re: Unique 997 turbo...

    It's totally different. Wood works ok (although I'd prefer Makassar to Sycamore in that case) in a Natural Brown interior. Sycamore is totally off in a Cocoa interior.
    That, and the yellow belts, piping and deviated stitching work with neither Cocoa, nor Sycamore, and definitely not with both combined.

    Eeeeeeeeeeesssssssssssssh!! What a nightmare.

    Combined two very different themes (sporty w/ yellow stitch/seat belts & luxery wood) to create a monster.

    Re: Unique 997 turbo...

    Plus the car has PCCB's? Wood interior w/ PCCB brakes, yeah that makes sense.. Ugghh & MSRP $168k . A white elephant.

    Wonder why the car is for sale, did the owner realize his boo boo or did a dealer fire a stoned salesman responsible? It's like someone said - 'just include every option possible, doesn't matter the combination'... There should be somthing at the Porsche factory that stops such builds before they happen. Red lights should start flashing and sirens should start sounding and then the computer that contains the option list should blow up!!!! Then everyone could feel a sigh of relief and go on w/ their day. lol!! Geez.

    Didn't someone ask for that colour combination recently? Yellow seatbelts with cocoa interior? Didn't we all think that wasn't such a good idea?

    Well, after seeing those pics we know that we were right and now we can say for sure that it's not the best combintation, to say the least.

    I must have missed those messages but you're right about that imo, 100%.

    The Cocoa really doesn't go w/ yellow and then add in the wood and you really have an awful combo. Matter of fact it would be difficult to create a worse looking interior. Maybe blue int/ w/ yellow stitching and wood would be the only one worse?

    Somehow I don't think that Ferrari F1 has adopted the Renault paint scheme .

    Re: Unique 997 turbo...

    I expect different things from Porsche. OTOH: Anything Ferrari does looks outageous and ballsy to me: therefore looks good!

    Re: Unique 997 turbo...

    ...and how about this one:



    Man From Chile Grey exterior
    Black/Ascot Brown interior
    Santiago Black trim wheels
    Fiorano Orange engine bay and PCCBs
    Ascot Brown luggage set
    $445,000

    I have the PCCBs with Makassar interior,--but only bits and pieces. I just can't see the sycamore going with much of anything. The ebony works better to me,--you have to have some degree of taste to pull all this off,--without going overboard.

    Re: Unique 997 turbo...

    I hope that dealer pocketed a hell of a deposit on that one. OMFG !
