    In this colour combo hard to sell?

    Please view these pics in the link.  I am planning to buy another 991 s cab in NZ to tide me over until my GT3.  This car with expresso interior is 20k cheaper than same with black.  I like it and its the only one of three available in NZ with seat ventilation.  Would you avoid this combo? ThanksSmiley

    This combo is at least in Germany very common. At the end a question of personal taste as always. But no reason to avoid it if you would like it.

    I think it's a lovely combination .. much more interesting than black leather


    Re: In this colour combo hard to sell?

    I would buy it!

    Re: In this colour combo hard to sell?

    I like it better than black.


    Re: In this colour combo hard to sell?

    Fantastic and timeless combination IMO.

    The same I'm going for with the 991 Turbo S.


    Re: In this colour combo hard to sell?

    That combination is popular , even if it is not my preferred choice.  I would not worry, unless the NewZelanders have something against braun  ?

    I paid extra to get Espresso over Black and would do so again. I only get positive responses and even the dealer ordered a demo car in the same combination (white/espresso) after they saw mine. The quality of the leather is also supposed to be better. So go for it!

    Re: In this colour combo hard to sell?

    Porsche has used a similar combination is some of their special models (Carrera GT) / editions (2004 Boxster S special edition to commemorate 50 years of the 550 Spyder). In that case, the interior was not the current Expresso but the previous Cocoa brown (which I found blotchy and with a hint of cordovan, which I personally don't care for).

    Of course, the CGT had its own special, lighter, brown interior, to go with GT Silver.800px-Porsche_Carrera_GT_(Salon_Auto_Bucuresti_2005).jpg

    So by no means an unusual combination for Porsche.


    Re: In this colour combo hard to sell?

    The darker Expresso is the best brown so far, imo.

     


    Re: In this colour combo hard to sell?

    Silver works with just about any interior I've seen. Go for it. kiss

    Re: In this colour combo hard to sell?

    The Espresso is "Natural Leather" so much better choice, plus cannot do black for a Cab, too hot for my tastes!


    Re: In this colour combo hard to sell?

    HAve the Espresso leather now for more than two years and I can confirm the quality is very good. Still looks new, also the seats.
