    Wow - lovely car. I may scrap Slate Grey (saving myself Pounds1000!!) and go for Seal Grey myself. I'm having huge dilemmas about interior colour - I'm not mad on the dash being the same colour as the leather seats - but yours does look very nice indeed.



    Raven, glad to see you've shaken off the slate grey. The sand interior looks great in sunny Spain, but would be very unusual for a UK car with Seal grey


    I wouldn't say I'd totally shaken off the slate grey. I'm still waiting to see one in the flesh when the dealer gets some in.

    Agree with you about the interior being more suited to the hotter climates. I'll probably end up going for Black interior at this rate.

    What are you going for?

    Re: Finally photos of my 997S.!!.Amazing.

    Thanks to everyone for their comments, the combination is probably the best for the 997. I'm glad that my pics have change the decisions for their colour combiantions of some rennteam users!!, just as other porsche clients in Madird!.
    What is your opinion of the combiantion RC??

    Thanks for the additonal photos. Yesterday I was able to change the color combination on my 997S order to Seal Grey/Sand Beige Full Leather. I think this is a stunning combination. The Sand Beige adds to the richness of the Seal Grey exterior.

    I had a 2003 Mercedes E500 with a Stone Leather interior for a year or so. That was way lighter in color than the Sand Beige. I don't remember the glare from the dash ever being a problem. The only bad thing about the light colored interior on the E500 was the same light color was carried onto the door sills. I am very happy to see that on the 997 these are black.

    As far as maintaining the lighter color interior, the fact that it shows the dirt is helpful in that you know when it needs to be cleaned and where. I once had a Ford Mustang convertible with white leather seats. After driving on the freeway with the top down the back seat would be almost black with diesel soot. If the seats were a darker color you might not see this soot, but it would surely be there.
    I think the lighter color is worth the extra effort.

    By the way, my car is due to be built in October. I was unable to get the Porsche Sport Exhaust added to my order.

    Thanks again for the great photos. Enjoy your new Porsche!

    I'm glad that my pics and my car have maked you think twice and be sure of the colour decision.
    Congratulations on your October 997!!!. I also couldn't go for the PSE too, but probably pre-install it....
    The combination is excellent, so don't worry at all!!. The only problem is that each time you go out of the garage, from the moment the car hits the sun, you already have some fingers pointing at you!!

    Re: Finally photos of my 997S.!!.Amazing.

    Hi Alex thankyou for these extra pics,it is very helpful for us people trying to decide which exterior/interior combo to choose,i see you owned a 996 cab before,does the 997 feel much quicker,and how about the handling ,i take it you have PASM suspension

    Re: Finally photos of my 997S.!!.Amazing.

    Gorgeous car, man!!! Just went to my local dealer and spotted a couple of brand-new 997s myself. All I can say is.......WOWEEEEEEEEE!!!!! Having a hard time picking the color before they give me a production date!!!!!
