    What do you guys think of Seal grey with Cocoa interior?

    I initially wanted Atlas grey with the cocoa, but ther more I think of it, i believe seal will go better. I know cocoa is also nice with silver, but i do not want a silver car.

    Re: What do you guys think of Seal grey with Cocoa interior?

    Any of the three combos would look very nice. Never seen a Boxster with cocoa, I've seen a seal grey CGT with brown interior and it looks very nice indeed.

    You might consider black deviating carpet to break it up a bit.

    i have a 987s in basalt with the cocoa interior. I could not be happier. The cocoa is wonderfull. Nice texture and even a subtle grain.

    Re: What do you guys think of Seal grey with Cocoa interior?

    Well I guess that tastes west of the Atlantic Ocean are different to tastes this side of it. Each to their own, but I think cocoa is awful. Sorry, but the question was asked!

    Re: What do you guys think of Seal grey with Cocoa interior?

    Aww, I don't think it's that bad... Though I haven't seen it in the flesh I admit. The only one I have trouble with is terracotta - it's ORANGE!

    But I tend to prefer warmer shades (sand, brown) over the colder shades (blue, green), and think the grey is just too colourless. I'm OK with black though!

    Re: What do you guys think of Seal grey with Cocoa interior?

    As a colouradvisor , I think the cocoa finds its perfect match in GT-silver, artic and seal are also OK, But I have to admit that basalt and esp atlas are not the perfect match for cocoa...sorry
    Atlas grey has a blue-isch touch in it depending on the light to wich it's exposed, it's that touch of blue in it that doesn't match with the brown of the cocoa...
    Atlas fits more with terracotta, altough I liked the former boxsterred more... Terracotta is very orange..
    When you combine it with black carpets it's a lot better...

    IMHO, Beltar is ABSOLUTELY Right !!
    Couldn't agree more !!

    Re: What do you guys think of Seal grey with Cocoa interior?

    I have to admit, i was nervous until i got the car. the basalt has dark brown flakes in it. i was not keen on the cocoa top (i went with black). in the end, i'm enjoying the benefit of a car built to spec - uniquely suited to my preferences (and unique in general).

    Brown is the new black!

    Weldon, I think cocoa is great! But as a brown-eyed girl, I am prone to my earth tones.

    I think your car looks really nice. I too am going for a unique combo of slate with sand - haven't seen it anywhere (searched like crazy online...) but I know it will look the dog's danglies. Some people follow the trends, some people set 'em...

    Re: Brown is the new black!

    I have the two-tone (stone-grey/black) full-leather interior in my 987 and I think it looks absolutely fantastic. I don't have a good pic of my interior, but here's a shot from the Leipzig car expo (AMI):

    Re: Brown is the new black!

    I'd say Seal + Cocoa = Bad. A medium grey and a dark brown....just don't go together IMO. Seal looks great with black, grey, blue, etc. Cocoa would look great with any silver, blue,......even red, yellow, and teal would be good matches. I've seen an Atlas Grey with Sea Blue interior....one of the best combos out there......

    Re: Brown is the new black!

    I was seeing a 987 in seal grey with cocoa roof and interior on Friday. Follow this link for a picture.

    Re: Brown is the new black!

    wow, that looks REALLY good.

    Re: Brown is the new black!




    Re: Brown is the new black!

    Just my opinion again.....but that combo looks horrid. Looks like someone made a mistake at the factory.

    Seal is a great exterior color and cocoa is a great interior color but I still vote no for both together......especially since GT or Artic Silver looks so much better with Cocoa.

    One thing about Porsches.....peoples tastes are vastly different and all that really matters in the end is if the new owner is happy with it!

    Re: Brown is the new black!

    Cocoa provides a pretty dull looking interior look. It really harkens back to the 924 era cocoa look interiors.

    Seal grey Porsches need some chrome bits and a darker contasting interior/roof to stand the color out.

    Otherwise its all rather hum drum looking and lacks any "presence."
