    GT2 Interior

    Need to spec my GT2 and would like to know how Leather Natural Grey/Alcantara would look with exterior White.

    Any opinions most weclome...

    Re: GT2 Interior

    Natural Grey is almost black so it would look okay with a white car but imo if I was buying a GT2 I'd want it to look as sporty as possible. The closer the color combo's are to the WHOLE idea of a car like the GT2 the better and will stand the test of time not just what your favorite color preferances may be at this time. The contast of white against black is more appealing to me than white w/ grey because the grey reduces the contast & looks less high-tech/sporty to me... So w/ that said imo the only interior color I would get with a white car would be black. IMO black is the most sporty color for the 997 interior. Red is also an interesting option but 1st choice for me will always be black.

    I was unsure that Dealers had recived their actual allocations. Have they?

    Re: GT2 Interior

    I got the call on my GT2 as well, July build.

    Re: GT2 Interior

    I personaly think blue interior matches best with white.

    Re: GT2 Interior

    White is a neutral color. It goes with anything.

    So if you want a neutral colored car, sure, white and grey work fine, as grey is a value of black.

    If you want to make a statement, and want white as your exterior color, you should pick something unique for the interior.

    White over Natural Brown leather would look particularly handsome. I also like dark blue and blood red interiors. Grey is too sterile in my opinion, but many find it a "clean" look.

    Re: GT2 Interior

    There are only two interior choices currently for GT2: Black Leather/Alcantara or Natural Leather Dark Grey/Black Alcantara. Keep that in mind. Also choice of standard and special exterior colors is limited in comparison to 997 Turbo...

    Re: GT2 Interior

    that's exactl the point. only natural grey and black are available fo the interior. unfortunately.

    kreso, does the natural grey feature black alcantara or grey alcantara.

    what is annoying as well, if you spec both carbon packages, you get the carbon [beep]. i would much more prefer the alcantara shifter and still have both carbon packages.

    and yes,....still no solution for pcm leather.

    Re: GT2 Interior

    Natural Leather Dark Grey features seat inlays in Black Alcantara. Actually is looks awsome IMHO.

    Regarding exterior color-only Meteor Grey or GT Silver for me.

    should i go for the grey/black interior instead of black ??
    do you have any pics ?

    thanks.

    Re: GT2 Interior

    My only comment is to have the center switch panel surround in leather or a dark color. When I sat in the Red GT2 at Frankfurt, the standard aluminum panel looked way too cheap for such a fabulous car.

    Re: GT2 Interior

    Natural Leather Dark Grey-example from IAA...






    As you can see Alcantara is also in Dark Grey, not Black like it says in stupid German GT2 price list...

    Re: GT2 Interior

    I just went through this decision on my white Nov build TT. I elected to get the natural gray leather, but ordered black deviating carpets (thanks Atomic80!) I spent a lot of time at the dealer with big pieces of leather (about 30" squares) of black and natural gray, and concluded the natural gray had it hands down over the black. What I did not like, however, is the natural gray carpets are considerably lighter in shade than the leather; hence the black carpets. Also, there are no factory mats available in natural gray; black mats are substituted by Porsche when you order gray.
    I'd send you a pic, but the car hasn't been built yet :>)

    Re: GT2 Interior

    Looking at the GT2 Configurator, which is in English under 'Other Countries' in 'Europe' on the Porsche.com website it appears there are three choices for interior:

    Black - full leather ie no alcantara
    Black- leather/alcantara
    Grey - leather/alcantara

    Personally I think the alcantara wheel/gearstick/handbrake etc makes the car feel far more like a GT3/RS in nature, whereas the full leather makes it feel more like a Turbo.....

    Re: GT2 Interior

    alcantara does not age well. I'd get the full leather black.

    Agreed,

    GT Silver with Black Leather/Black Alcantara for me.

    I believe it's the same. "Black" alcantara is closer to Natural grey leather anyway: Alcantara as a material always looks unsaturated / soft / "faded". I doubt it's possible to achieve true blackness with it.

    Don't order the small Carbon package (803) from the factory. Make sure your dealer has a Tequipment Carbon Dashboard Enhancement Package in stock, and let him install it when your car arrives.

    That way, you get what you're looking for. Tequipment packages are set up differently from the corresponding factory options: the shifter and e-brake are not part of the Carbon dashboard package, but are sold together with the steering wheel.

    (However, do order the extended carbon package (EAD) from the factory, as it's not available in any form from Tequipment. The Tequipment dashboard enhancement package only covers the thin trim strip: the vents cannot be retrofitted.)

    Maybe that's black to the Germans. Does anything surprises you anymore after getting thru Porsche's ordering guide especially the interior pieces?
