    Does Midnight Blue work with Black interior?

    I'm 90% sure I'm going to change the order on my 997S to Mignight Blue. However, I'd really like Black on the inside as it cleans up the dash.

    Does anyone have this? Do they match?

    Re: Does Midnight Blue work with Black interior?

    I have this combination and I really like it IMHO it works well . I can't understand why it's not a recommended colour combo in the Porsche brochure. To me its works the same as Black on Black

    Do you have any pics showing the combo? Something of the door?

    sws1, I will try to sort some out this weekend

    Re: Does Midnight Blue work with Black interior?

    HI I think it looks dull.

    I would go for beige (Classier to my opinion.) If not why dont you go for Blue leather interior ? Good match.!


    Good luck Florent

    2 tone int. black dash - terracotta seats.

    Re: Does Midnight Blue work with Black interior?

    You need to seriously look at Natural Brown Leather.

    Midnight works best with sea blue, natural brown and terracotta.

    Re: Does Midnight Blue work with Black interior?

    Look around your house. If it is very neat and "minimal" you might want the black interior. IMO, there's just waaaaay too much stuff going every which way in the 997 interior (lines, shapes, textures, materials, colors, doorpanels, speaker trim, stitching, you name it); black tones it down.

    Re: Does Midnight Blue work with Black interior?

    I dont like the black, but its a preference, you like it, so who cares!! The black is not a deep black interior, so it looks nice. Lots of interior colors to contemplate, take your time!! I like cocoa,... I keep hearing about the sea blue, is that the color name, thats doesnt sound good with Midnight, clash city, but I need to see a pic...goodluck

    I have stone grey, yes I know, basic match...The terracotta would make me ill with Midnight, cmon seriously now!!!!

    IMO

    Re: Does Midnight Blue work with Black interior?

    If the 997S you are contemplating is a coupe, bear in mind that because of the sunroof there is very little insulation in the roof. With midnight blue and a sunny day I can promise that the interior will be quite warm. Now the sea blue will go quite well with the midnight blue as it is quite a dark color. Also the natural brown would give you a much more classier look. Doing a search in Rennteam will produce pictures of many other combinations that you may find satisfactory. One final word, before placing your order view your selected colors under natural sunlight and not under the showroom lighting.

    Re: Does Midnight Blue work with Black interior?

    Most definitely dark blue with black is a good combo.
    Not to everybody's liking but that does not change the fact that they can be combined.

    Re: Does Midnight Blue work with Black interior?

    I just locked down my order tonight on MIdnight Blue / Beige full leather. I have seen all the pics, and the dealer had a C4S in the showroom with those exact colors. Best looking car in there IMO.

    What's funny is that in spite of analyzing the colors to death, I came back to almost the exact combo I had on my 2001 Boxters S (Lapis / Savannah). The only different now is that the Midnight blue and Sand Beige are even nicer to my eyes that Lapis Savannah.

    Re: Does Midnight Blue work with Black interior?

    I had savannah, too much butterscotch..
    You'll like the beige better, softer, more enjoyable

    My Boxster was Ocean blue/Savannah Beige, got a little bright inside, but always looked fresh!!

    Re: Does Midnight Blue work with Black interior?

    My Boxster was Ocean (not Lapis, as I used to say) and Savannah? Beige; 997 is Midnight and Sand Beige. The Boxster Beige was nicer than the Sand Beige, but the two colors - blue/beige - are the right choice, in my mind.

    Re: Does Midnight Blue work with Black interior?

    Midnight Blue looks AWESOME with Sand Beige( #1)!

    Black is nice, but several others: Cocoa, Grey, and Natural Brown would be my next preferences...

    Re: Does Midnight Blue work with Black interior?

    funny, I think Midnight and Black would be good. natural leather gray (which looks almost black) would be even better.
