    Glad to help.

    Just wondering what do you mean by "black?" Painted shine-y black? Black leather? Stock black "vinyl?"

    Re: BLACK console - any pics?

    both painted black and black leather console in black leather interior.

    Re: BLACK console - any pics?

    Black/terracotta with black carpets and black painted console.
    Member vinnie83 has just ordered a Carrera Red car with black leather console. You'll probably have to wait until it arrives to get similar pictures.

    Re: BLACK console - any pics?

    Thanks, i am still thinking to have the painted console or leather console, any thoughts?

    Re: BLACK console - any pics?

    IMHO, leather all the way. Glossy painted is just that: plastics.

    I think the rear center console in black (whether painted, leather or CF) is a must with black deviated carpets.

    Re: BLACK console - any pics?

    Take a close look at leather and "plastic." Unless you like more stitching, the stock "plastic" looks fine either because the material is mfgred nicely OR it's in a low relatively dark part of the car and you don't see it very much to be bothered by it.

    OTOH, painting it (making it shiny) gives it a lot of attention but reminds me of _roadsters/speedsters_ which are meant to be functional and not "luxury" GT cars. BTW, mine IS painted.

    If I could spec my car all over again: I'd probably now consider Carbon Fiber as a first choice.



    just my two cent's worth.

    CF look great too, but that's just an overlay carbon and you can see the plastic base when you open it. plus very expensive.

    But I think the CF console would look more classy than the painted black console. Way to go.

    thanks for the advice.

    Re: BLACK console - any pics?

    Carbon looks better

    black deviated carpets? any pics?

    The picture above is a black/terracotta interior with deviated carpeting in black. If the deviated carpeting had not been ordered then the standard carpet would have been terracotta.

    Re: BLACK console - any pics?

    Its really hard to spec out a "custom" porsche interior because the option codes are so damned complicated and non-intuitive.

    One mis-step, one ommission and your car arrives seriously f*ed. Been there, done that. 6 months of waiting only to be disappointed and forced to shaft my dealer with a 190k car.

    Big issues:

    * Package options together is that so hard? They could even charge MORE for it because it would be less transparent how much individual components cost.

    * Why is it so bloody complicated?!!!

    Two examples of MANY of why its complicated:

    * Why are there 4 options for stitching? How many people only want coloured stitching on SOME parts? Compare that number to how many people get screwed because they didn't order all the codes?

    * Why do you need to order the special leather option for a certain part (ex: gearshift/handbrake/misc leather) (a common accidental ommision) in order to have the deviated stitching carry over to that part?

    * Why are people (who don't know what they're doing) in charge of ordering cars at the dealership?

    i see.

    the standard carpets for mine would be all black, because mine would have all black leather interior.

    I'm starting to think we should make Rennteam special editions. Group buy of 10 to 20 heavily optioned cars. Paint-to-sample and elegant, unusual interior combinations. And most important, with a guarantee that there won't be any glaring mistakes in the spec...
    There is enough knowledge on this board to make it happen. A lot more than at most dealers'.

    E.g. baltic blue, blue top if applicable, ocean blue leather, linen seats, linen vents surround and dashboard trim strip, blue stitching on linen leather, linen stitching on blue leather, and the usual suspects (PCCB, adaptative seats, XPA, DAV/DAW, XMZ, CUV/CPT, XTV, XMP, CVW, XZD/CZD, CUR, DAA/DAB/DAC...)

    Exclusive options are expensive and so are paint and leather to sample, but there is probably a lot of negociating room if we order in bulk.

    Re: BLACK console - any pics?

    As mentioned above I've ordered carrera red interior with deviated black carpets, black leather rear console + compartment lid, with red stitching.... I was thinking of the painted black finish, but decided against - I was worried about the finish dulling over time with watches on the wrist rubbing, studs on denim jeans / jackets etc scratching the shiny finish.

    Also I saw a car in the dealership with black leather + red stitching and I fell in love immediately!

    Definitely would recommend the black leather finish over painted anyday myself.......

    We can all back out when the car comes.

    (I always liked the linen leather though, ever since I saw it in an old exclusive catalogue)

    Re: BLACK console - any pics?

    Cars would be paid in advance and ordered from a juridiction where you can't back out (or forfeit the $150k).

    If that fails, there's still Euroclassics...

    What's really weird is that is actually pretty close to what I am thinking for my next 911, except I would switch the arrangement of the leather -- the seats would be sea blue and the rest linen. I fear that linen seats would get really dirty on a daily driver. I'd also nix the devaiting vents as I'm not fond of that look, but to each his own.

    Re: BLACK console - any pics?

    Linen leather is like solid black paint. It looks so damn good, but it's not practical.

    Your version is not practical either, because of annoying windshield reflections, and some interior parts not being available in non-standard colors.

    Re: BLACK console - any pics?

    AH yes, I would panic when jeans/etc rubbed off on my linen leather.

    Black paint was a stupid idea, esp on my GT3 track car.

    Nano-tech will end these problems

    You're probably right about the dash. But it could look good if it's just the lower part of the door in linen (with the upper part in Sea Blue) and perhaps the consol hatch lid in linen.

    Re: BLACK console - any pics?

    We always hit the same problem in the 997. The shape of the door speakers (the woofer specifically) and the lack of bicolor rear side panels in any color other than sand, stone and terracotta, preclude such setups.

    While it is possible to order a linen insert in the door panel (i.e. not the speakers, nor the top, nor the side airbag trim strip) to avoid the door speaker problem, it still looks iffy in a 997 because there is nothing similar in the back. So, we're pretty much stuck with deviated seats only (and deviated stitching in the same color everywhere else).

    On the other hand, in a 987, it looks great. If I were to order a 987 today, I'd order white with natural grey interior, black top, black carpets, red stitching, carrera red seat inserts, door inserts, center armrest/console hatch lid, and dashboard trim strip.

    It's just silly to spend that kind of money on a 987.

    Re: BLACK console - any pics?

    Groom: This is what I'm talking about, except keep the seats blue so they don't get too dirty. I would probably just do the door inserts and leave the rest (including the entire dash) sea blue.
