    Color Request

    Hey guys,

    I have a color combo request for you. I was wondering if anyone has any pictures of a 997 Cab (namely a C4S) in Gaurds Red with a Cocoa top. The common color combo is black so it has been tough finding any pictures of this. I also built one on Porsche's website but seeing the real thing is just a lot better! Maybe someone can photoshop one in their free time if available? Thanks!

    Re: Color Request

    Bright red with dark brown? IMO, that's not a good combination...but, taste is subjective.

    Re: Color Request

    It does sound interesting when you hear it, but the Cocoa is pretty close to the black. It is interesting to think about.

    Re: Color Request

    I've ordered cocoa leather for my new car. I can assure you it is nothing like black!

    Regarding the leather interior:

    Cocoa leather is like a very dark chocolate colour. It has black 'veins' in it so it looks more 'textured'. The black leather interior is really a very very dark matt grey. It's isn't jet black.

    Regarding the cabriolet soft top:

    The black top is a real black - not very dark grey - but it is a matt finish. However, the cocoa soft top is dark chocolate but usually seems a tiny bit lighter than the interior cocoa leather colour. I think it's because the daylight obviously lightens it up more from the exterior. Inside colours will obviously look darker unless the soft top is open catching the same daylight.

    Re: Color Request

    I have seen Cocoa in person and I agree with you that the interior color is much different than black. Regarding the top, the black top with Gaurds Red is so common that it is almost not as desirable. I am just wondering how the combo would look in real life, or in pictures. The Car Config. seemed to make it look fine, in that when switching from black to cocoa on the top no real change was noticable. The interior color would not be cocoa.
