    Aluminum Look Seat Backs

    Does anyone have pictures of sports seats with the aluminum look back? Specifically, I'm considering a cocoa interior with mostly aluminum accents.

    Re: Aluminum Look Seat Backs

    Here's the stock sport seats seatback.

    I think the aluminum one is completely smooth; no u-shaped ridge, no hook. Anyway, I've seen silver seat backs that are very bright and smooth (like fenders), I believe that's the aluminum look. (can't find the pictures)

    Re: Aluminum Look Seat Backs

    As one who has a full leather cocoa interior in my 997, I would be hesitant at using much aluminum look with that color. Such a combination would look fine with black. But when you view a full cocoa interior you find it is a much richer looking color, hence the hesitation.

    Re: Aluminum Look Seat Backs

    Here's the pic I was thinking of, obviously not a Porsche product, but compelling nevertheless.

    Re: Aluminum Look Seat Backs

    Here's what appears to be the Al Look. Apparently it's simply the stock "smoked silver" ("volcano grey?") color replaced by the aluminum trim color.

    This is the closest I could find. It is GT Silver on Cocoa leather.

    GT Silver on Cocoa.

    Re: Aluminum Look Seat Backs

    Wow, that's the worst picture I've ever seen of cocoa. Given that it always looks bad in photos, I still think people should see it in person before ordering.

    IMHO, the 997 interior is already waaaaay too bizzy and adding all these bright aluminum elements might bring it over the top for some people.

    Definitely problematic (IMO) Notice how the white stitching sticks way out and bizzy-fies everything in these photos on the link jerrygee provided.

    Re: Aluminum Look Seat Backs

    I'd prefer the carbon package instead...

    Heres a few of GT silver painted backs on cocoa..

    Re: Aluminum Look Seat Backs

    Also check whether the side air bags in the seats backs are also painted - the ones int he pic abpve were done specially, and not part of the painted seat backs option.

    Oh BTW, in percymon's picture, it shows the elastic-rimmed pouches on seat backs.

    I'm fairly certain Porsche discontinued them in the Carrera for 2006 (and beyond?).

    cleaner look w/o them etc... .

    I'd rather have them since nobody sees my C2S seatbacks anyway... .

    FWIW


    Re: Aluminum Look Seat Backs

    Not what I would've specced, but this interior looks extremely sharp w/the basalt black seatbacks & other contrasting bits! (someone on rennlist bought this car)
