    GT silver with Bordeaux, or Rhodium with graphite blue/chalk.


    Re: OFFICIAL: 2016 Porsche 911 [991.2]

    Silver/grey are not even considered a color, they are just part of 50 shades of grey!

    it is a fact, orde has been placed...

    a 911.2 c2 with lots of options it will be !

    GT silver on the outside and Agatha grey on the inside. 

    Oh, I will collect in Zuffenhausen on August 30 indecision  

    (Any suggestion from our German members about what to visit ?)

    Big thanks to all of you for the support and suggestions!

    (waiting, waiting,waiting,waiting...waiting...)

    Congrats Smiley but I would seriously rethink that GT silver/agate grey interior choice. It really looks boring. Smiley

    Re: OFFICIAL: 2016 Porsche 911 [991.2]

    it's clear that my car will be higly exclusive...no one has (or likes...) the color combo :-)

    as I have 'ivory' for the moment in my actual car, I decided not to go for the chalk/blue combo as it seems higly sensitive .

    the 991 will be my daily (also only) car...and honestly, the bordeaux is not so euh...bordeaux...

    I was adviced against the bordeaux for being... boring! (sorry rc)

    I'm running out of options: no chalk, no bordeaux...and no fancy exterior color (do not want to trigger my customers too much). And as always, some customers (a few :-( ) will consider it a good 'sign', others will ask if they are paying for my car...


    Re: OFFICIAL: 2016 Porsche 911 [991.2]

    If you are going for silver on the outisde, I would consider black on the iinside with silver deviated stitching and other silver color bits. But not grey on the insde too. Just my two cents kiss

    Re: OFFICIAL: 2016 Porsche 911 [991.2]

    Maybe two tone black/red. Looks stunning in my boring agate grey Macan.


    Re: OFFICIAL: 2016 Porsche 911 [991.2]

     Another two cents. What about espresso cognac in  natural leather ?


    Re: OFFICIAL: 2016 Porsche 911 [991.2]

    hmmm...too expensive i'm afraid frown

    but I asked if changes are still possible...apart from the fact I will collect on August 30, I don't know till when I can make changes.


    Re: OFFICIAL: 2016 Porsche 911 [991.2]

    I have to second Carlos.

    GT silver with black interior and silver stitching looks great. Elegant and sporty together (with black wheels!).
    I saw this combination on other P cars (991.1 GTS, Spyder). Great.

    Silver on grey doesn't suit the 911 very well, I'm afraid. It's a fun car, make it fun. At least on the inside!


    Re: OFFICIAL: 2016 Porsche 911 [991.2]

    I can't select deviated stitching in the configurator...

    has anyone an idea about the extra cost?

    Understand that life is not a dress rehearsal.

    You will be spending over a $100,000 for this car and the cost of the interior stitching or any other interior is percentage wise very small. This is a big and important purchase. Do it right. Seize the moment and get what you believe will make the car look the way you want it.Smiley

    Whoopsy:

    Silver/grey are not even considered a color, they are just part of 50 shades of grey!

     

    per the late car designer Sergio Pininfarina,  whites , silvers , greys  and black were not referred to internally as " colors " ...but as " tones "

    he also stated that silver is always the best for revealing fully a vehicle's exterior design complexities / subtleties and black being the worst

    Re: OFFICIAL: 2016 Porsche 911 [991.2]

    In the meantime, I saw some pictures of agate interior...sorry for those who have it, but it seems much, much lighter  and more grey than throughout  the configurator. I don't like it anymore.  I saw it on a Macan af the dealer, inside the building (no daylight) and looked way more black than what I recentst saw on the internet in daylight.

    Als of June,16th the order is locked, I'm considering changing I into black. Does someone has real pictures (daylight) of a black interior? any other thoughts on black are, of course, very welcome!

    i would be very greatful.

     


    Re: OFFICIAL: 2016 Porsche 911 [991.2]

    Black leather it will be !

    i'll keep the standard silver alu (plastic?) stripes. Otherwise too many different kinds of "silver".

    This is a color that you really should see in person.  Not too hard to find an example at a dealer...

    Re: OFFICIAL: 2016 Porsche 911 [991.2]

    Does it really look that washed out gray? That doesn't look blue at all.


    Re: OFFICIAL: 2016 Porsche 911 [991.2]

    Indeed... That's why I changed my mind although the combination with blue/chalk interior looks stunning. 

    Comparing with other brands I found it difficult to find a color that suites me/the car. There really are not many colors, are there?

     

    still waiting for my gt silver with black leather...


    Re: OFFICIAL: 2016 Porsche 911 [991.2]

    Wonderbar:

    I saw a beautiful 991 parked some blocks from our home today - I can check if the car is there tomorrow, if so I take some pictures. The color looked excellent (although I was no fan of it seeing it at IAA in artificial light). In real life this can look amazing.


    Re: OFFICIAL: 2016 Porsche 911 [991.2]

    Here are two from my March test drive.  At least to my eye a fair representation of the color on an overcast cloudy day.   The cloudy weather may explain my lack of enthusiasm for the car compared to my 991.1S.  As Grant says best seen in person though.

    Thanks folks, much appreciated...


    Re: OFFICIAL: 2016 Porsche 911 [991.2]

    So, in the above washed out "gray" photo, is that what it really looks like to the eye in the sun, or is that just an artifact of the camera, exposure, etc? I think my first response was a bit ambiguous, but this is what I really wanted to know.


    Re: OFFICIAL: 2016 Porsche 911 [991.2]

    I saw one in the flesh at my dealer. It does not look good. It has an appearance of a washed out grey.
