    Re: 997 turbo Meteor Grey with Flamenco Red leathe

    How far off is that from Boxster red?

    Re: 997 turbo Meteor Grey with Flamenco Red leathe

    Pretty far actually! It is full red as red leather on F430.

    Re: 997 turbo Meteor Grey with Flamenco Red leathe

    What a frickin' disaster!!!!!!!!!!

    I Have Spoken.



    PS. Meteor grey is an excellent color choice for TT.

    Re: 997 turbo Meteor Grey with Flamenco Red leathe

    I like the color, I just feel that it is a bit too dominant over the interior. Still beautiful though!

    Re: 997 turbo Meteor Grey with Flamenco Red leathe

    When I ordered my meteor grey TT, I almost went with two-tone terra cotta, but it seemed too orange. I thought about a custom dark red or maroon leather. I wound up with a black interior, but it seemed kind of pedestrian.

    I sure feel better about it now.

    Don't like the red in the 997tt, don't like it in the F430 either.

    Bordeaux leather or leather cuoio is far better with grey colours like meteor or silverstone for example.

    I agree with you! But, Bordeaux on F430 is actually too light for real Bordeaux! Audi's Classic Red from quattro Gmbh Exclusive range is prefect dark red leather color IMHO.

    Re: 997 turbo Meteor Grey with Flamenco Red leathe

    Still think that round hub steering wheel is a joke.

    COME ON PAG....put a wheel in there that has some meat to it. That thing is pathetic.

    Re: 997 turbo Meteor Grey with Flamenco Red leathe

    BTW, here is a list of special leather colors that are possible to order:

    Guards Red
    Lipstic Red
    Flamenco Red
    Magnolia
    Speed Yellow
    Maritim Blue
    Giotto Grey
    Red Brown
    Mahagoni

    what's about:
    Magnolia??
    Giotto grey??
    Mahagoni??

    Re: 997 turbo Meteor Grey with Flamenco Red leathe

    White with Flaminco red interior used to be a pretty hot combo in 911's in the 80's. I like it, a little too pink for my (and it seems like most of everyone else) but still it's making YOUR can what YOU want.

    A darker red like oxblood with say a slate exterior would be fantastic.

    Re: 997 turbo Meteor Grey with Flamenco Red leathe

    Looks great on ......Ferrari

    but not Porsche

    Re: 997 turbo Meteor Grey with Flamenco Red leathe

    the interior looks hideous

    Re: 997 turbo Meteor Grey with Flamenco Red leathe

    i guess its ok ..but imo the 2 tone terra cota would look better...i had a basalt boxster with b-red interior that i thought looked great...strange they dont offer that interior color anymore

    Re: 997 turbo Meteor Grey with Flamenco Red leathe

    There should be a checkpoint (internally) that won't allow certain hideous combos from ever being conceived.

    Re: 997 turbo Meteor Grey with Flamenco Red leathe

    not for me

    Re: 997 turbo Meteor Grey with Flamenco Red leather

    Well it certainly stands out. With Porsche's more conservative / traditional style I don't personally think such colours go to well as they would with say a Ferrari 430. Just as well we don't all like the same thing. As someone else here said, a more subtle oxblood red with grey or silver is more my taste.

    Re: 997 turbo Meteor Grey with Flamenco Red leather

    Imagine having to drive home in that after a crap day in the office..

    Its just so unrelaxing on the eye ..

    Re: 997 turbo Meteor Grey with Flamenco Red leather

    WOW.... Very striking. Lovely colour but way too much of it and OTT for me.

    Perhaps would look nice in two tone with black? Certainly doesnt need the steering wheel etc...

    Re: 997 turbo Meteor Grey with Flamenco Red leather

    Reminds me of that avocado green metallic 930 with the purple hides...
