    Full leather

    Hi to All,

    I am curious is it possible to retrofit full leather interior (997 Cabrio GTS sand beige)? Now the car has all the goodies except full leather interior (adaptive seats, diff., bose, even PCCB). Maybe someone has already maked this? How much it can cost?

    is the partial leather is no go for you?

    Thanks!

    Have you talked to the Porsche Exclusive department?

    The retrofit should be possible but not cheap.

    Stay away of Porsche Exclusive. If you want to make this done go to a tuner or leather specialist. They can do that for a fraction of the cost what Porsche will charge you. 

    I just can talk about my vintage car and that full leather was so in-expensive, I can't even say how cheap that was. 

    And RC - remember that Mustang interior. It was gorgeous, tailored to the car and still less expensive than any Porsche factory order.

    True but the problem is when he wants to sell the car and he has to unveil that it hasn't been done by Porsche but a third party. It could devalue the whole car if he wants to keep it as a classic. 

    Techart did some leather work for Porsche do in the past but I do not know how the quality is now.

    Hmmm - as long as the quality looks comparable I wouldn't mind.

    I don't think the car is old enough to call a classic (no offense to Mantas), maybe in 15 or 20 years when everything is turbo and people are hunting down the last remaining NA engines, then people can start worrying about whether the leather came straight out of the factory or not.  Instead I think if they did a good quality job he could showcase it as an asset come sale time. he could say it was a special custom made interior by a local leather craftsman and play it in his favour. It's all about finding the right buyer and turning a negative into a positive when you're trying to sell something.

    I would call only cars over 10 years of age classics but I assume that with the introduction of the turbo charged 911, things could change fast. It really depends on how good the new turbo charged 911 will be and how it sounds.

    Re: Full leather

    The 997 GTS is (imho) approaching Modern Classic status. The rarest one is the Manual Coupe which was built in around 700 units which is a pretty low number by Porsche standards.  I would not modify it but that`s a personal opinion.
