    997S Black/Terracotta Pictures

    S Black/Terracotta Pictures

    Pic of terracotta interior makes me feel a little more confident about ordering my slate/terracotta...it looked more pinkish in other pictures

    Re: 997S Black/Terracotta Pictures

    last one

    Re: 997S Black/Terracotta Pictures

    amazing!

    You forced me to tell y'all

    For a couple years I had a 1988 Jaguar XJ-S with a buckskin leather interior. (My wife approved of the car)

    Everything was going well until one day a friend of mine said, "Gee, your interior looks gay!" (not that there's anything wrong with that).

    Got rid of the car later because of endless mechanical problems.

    But ever since that comment I never saw the interior the same way. Since then I am vastly more aware of the interior materials and color, which is totally ironic, wouldn't you say?

    Sounds like that was the beginning of the "end" of it

    Hmm, that Terra Cotta would be a leap for me. Glad I went black To each his own.

    Re: You forced me to tell y'all

    Not quite on topic, but looking at those pictures i can't help being awed by the beauty of the 997 The poise, the allure, the shape's smoothness, the way it looks like it lurches forwards even when standing still... a masterpiece of design
    Retro or not, those headlights are a perfect fit for the evolved shape..

    Re: You forced me to tell y'all

    Yeh, I don't like that interior at all, I'm sorry.

    Personally, I like dark interiors but if you absolutly have to go light(er) than the beige color that is popular in Ferrari's is nice.

    By the way Max, where are you from? I'm very curious

    By the way brunner, I think the picture below shows THE most flattering angle of the 911. It's a 996 GT3, so imagine with the new 997 headlights

    (Thanks to GT3Scott for the photo)

    Re: You forced me to tell y'all

    I think I could live with the terra cotta, but I think I would prefer the sand beige. Nice pics though, and Danny, thanks for showing a pic again of the most beautiful GT3 in the world.

    I would suggest cocoa or (if still available) cinnamon brown leather. I saw the latter on a slate grey 996 Turbo and it looked absolutely beautifull. It doesn't have the redish/pinkish tone of the terracota. Maybe natural brown would suit as well. Don't forget to post pics I'm really curious to see a slate grey 997.

    Re: 997S Black/Terracotta Pictures

    I'm also curious to see a slate grey 997. I'm thinking about the interior colour and spoke to the dealer today (when he phoned to tell me I couldn't order a sports exhaust) and he thought black was the best option if I didn't want to spend extra on the interior colour. Can you get brown for the 997?

    Re: 997S Black/Terracotta Pictures

    Beautiful in my opinion.....now deviate the carpet to black and it would be even better!

    Cinnamon brown I believe is gone for the 997....nice color though. Natural Brown looks awesome with slate, seen a few 996s in that scheme....

    Slate/Natural Brown...



    Black/Cinn/Deviated black carpet...


    Re: 997S Black/Terracotta Pictures

    In my opinion the ineterior looks great!!!. I was going for that interior in the 997S, but its a bit expensive, and then went to beige!.
    Again that 997S with that combo is probably one of the best choices.....apart from the interior:beige and exterior:seal greay (mine)hehehe

    IMO dark interiors look best.
    Sorry but terracotta just doesn't do it for me...Although I really do need to witness the colour on an actual car to truly endorse my view.
    What about resale, do you think interior colour might effect values? If so would you change your choice?

    Re: You forced me to tell y'all

    Danny,

    I have a black GT3 as well.
    I love that rear wing.
    Is is the CF one from Carnewal.
    Can you post other pics of it, like a side profile of the car and a shot from the rear if possible?
    Im interested in buying one too.

    Thanks,

    R

    Re: 997S Black/Terracotta Pictures

    Love the slate/cinnamon pics...I tried ordering my slate with cinnamon (special interior order) but porsche said they could only give me a black stearing wheel and shifter and could not deviate the carpet yet...TOO EARLY IN THE ORDERING PROCESS...oh well...Im looking forward to taking my slate/terracotta delivery in next 3 weeks...will post pics

    RR4, the wing is the Carbon one from the GT3RS, here are some more pics.

    Sorry for going off-topic guys.

    Again, thanks to GT3Scott for the pics.
