    Re: 997 Turbo Cabrio Macadamia Metallic

    Cool pics!!!
    Imagine this pic in Black/Basalt

    Re: 997 Turbo Cabrio Macadamia Metallic

    very nice pics!!grazie!

    Re: 997 Turbo Cabrio Macadamia Metallic

    nice colour, really match the cabrio.

    between is that black interior?

    Re: 997 Turbo Cabrio Macadamia Metallic

    I guess those odd colors are okay; they MUST look better in person.

    I can't imagine _ordering_ them though; more like an "off-the-lot" decision IMO.

    Because the car has almost a _mythical_ presence to it, it's like "traditional _Porsche_ colors" are burned into my brain as the only possibilities. You know..., AS, SY, GR, Blk, Grey, WT... .

    I really like this color, not being sarcastic or anything.

    Re: 997 Turbo Cabrio Macadamia Metallic

    I like the bronze hue to it. Would have greater appeal if there was less red (?) in there and more yellow (?).

    IOW, if it looked more "champagne" in color it would be a stunner IMO (_polished_ bronze not "patina-ed" bronze).

    My money is on natural grey with black carpets.

    I still don't know what to think about that color. I guess I'll have to wait until I see one in the flesh. Until then, stick to Arctic or Midnight Blue.

    Re: 997 Turbo Cabrio Macadamia Metallic

    Interior is Black. I saw that color in person few weeks ago and it looks pretty good. Actually lighter in shades then in pics above...

    Re: 997 Turbo Cabrio Macadamia Metallic

    It looks like I need to upgrade my "natural grey radar". I though the [beep]-proof test was to compare the plastic and leather areas.

    It might be the lighting, but the leather areas appears to be noticeably brighter than the plastic (which remains black in natural grey interiors). Also, the carpets look noticeably brighter than the leather, whereas Porsche interiors are usually set up the other way round.

    Do I really need to bring my "natural grey radar" to the dealership for the 30,000km service?

    Anyway, I've like Macadamia best with Natural Brown so far.

    Re: 997 Turbo Cabrio Macadamia Metallic

    Nice but the black interior on this color is questionable?

    Re: 997 Turbo Cabrio Macadamia Metallic

    Regarding grey interiors.

    This is not the greatest comp (dammit: I can't find the better one); try to ignore the bicolor of the BMW.

    It shows how busy the 997 interior is compared to BMW. Look at the door panels especially.

    Everything is broken up and somewhat jumbled in 997. BMW is always coherent, unified and flowing.

    My point; I have always ordered BMWs with grey interiors because they are soooooo nice looking; grey shows them off.

    IM_H_O, the 997 interior looks best (to some people) in black to downplay the extra stuff going on. Natural grey is kinda dark, right? If so that's good.


    Re: 997 Turbo Cabrio Macadamia Metallic

    Natural Grey is like 90% black. It's close enough that Porsche did not bother to make dark grey plastics, they just carried over the parts from the black interior.

    Porsche is trying to keep as many interior parts as possible common to the 911 and the Boxster. It lowers costs, but it does not necessarily flows well together. In fact I prefer the 987's interior to the 997's.

    Re: 997 Turbo Cabrio Macadamia Metallic

    looks better in person. I saw this color on dealer lot and it was OK. Good for risky people.

    Re: 997 Turbo Cabrio Macadamia Metallic

    It looks like a type of nail polish my grandma used to wear (seriously).

    Re: 997 Turbo Cabrio Macadamia Metallic

    I ordered the 997 Turbo Cabrio Macadamia Metallic with two tone sand (beige)/black for a December delivery. If I can figure out how to upload pictures I will.
