    I Can not decide!!!!! Would lover you opinions!!!

    Im on the verge of ordering my 997, yet i still can't figure out which color combo i perfer. I have always like seal gray and beige on past porsche's, but i dont know if i like it on the 997. I also love slate, Atlas gray but dont have a good enough idea of how they looks exactly, specially with sand beige. WHat are you opinions, which whould you choose if it were up to you. Pictures would be a help if available.

    Re: I Can not decide!!!!! Would lover you opinions!!!

    I like Slate, Seal and Atlas with a preference for Slate. I don't think I prefer it $3000 worth though. Sand interior should go nicely with any of them.

    Re: I Can not decide!!!!! Would lover you opinions!!!

    I know this is a 987, but hopefully some help. Seal/Sand.

    Re: I Can not decide!!!!! Would lover you opinions!!!

    Another...

    Re: I Can not decide!!!!! Would lover you opinions!!!

    Last one... note screen reflection. Not as distracting as it looks when driving, but worse than from black dash.

    Re: I Can not decide!!!!! Would lover you opinions!!!

    Nice but not mad on the light leathers because it shows its wear more and dirt..GT Silver is superb it really brings out the alloys and all chrome logos ..

    For interiors I am safe and boring I stick with the dark non loud ones ..

    GT Silver / Black Interior = Class and Porsche ..

    Just my opinion though ..

    throt..

    Re: I Can not decide!!!!! Would lover you opinions!!!

    atlas grey is a lovely colour, almost looks black with a hint of dark green

    Re: I Can not decide!!!!! Would lover you opinions!!!

    Basalt Black and Sand look good, as does Basalt black and Terracotta

    Re: I Can not decide!!!!! Would lover you opinions!!!

    i think he has a basalt black 996 and you'd probably want a change of colour no?

    tooner has a artic silver cab with terracotta, looks great

    Re: I Can not decide!!!!! Would lover you opinions!!!

    I do own a Black/black 996, i am trying to stay away from black again due to the maintanice of keeping it clean. I would perfer a dark gray color rather than artic silver or GT silver. i just am getting such a mixed reaction everytime i see one of those 3 colors, i love them all but some times i think the seal is too bland, the atlas is too dark almost baslt black and on the blue side, and the slate maybe to brownish. As far as the interior, true the black is definitly the safist bet, i want some thing different. I was considering the coco, but now i am leaning twards the sand beige.

    By the way, beautiful car wtsnet, you pics really do help, Thankyou.

    Re: I Can not decide!!!!! Would lover you opinions!!!

    cocoa is ummm, not my cup of tea, i honestly don't really like it. makes your car look like a "skidmark" on wheels.

    why not try midnight blue POR911? that's also a nice colour, sure it would look terrific with sand beige

    Re: I Can not decide!!!!! Would lover you opinions!!!

    Blue is nice but its not for me!

    Re: I Can not decide!!!!! Would lover you opinions!!!

    it's almost black POR911

    Re: I Can not decide!!!!! Would lover you opinions!!!

    What about Atlas Grey/Black which is alittle more rarer.

    Re: I Can not decide!!!!! Would lover you opinions!!!

    wicked nice, tooner --as always.

    Here is Slate/Sand from 987 board (although my 997 will be dark horse Slate/Black).

    Re: I Can not decide!!!!! Would lover you opinions!!!

    Slate/Sand:....just gorgeous the warm metallic tones in Slate.

    Re: I Can not decide!!!!! Would lover you opinions!!!

    What about Slate gray, seems like an in-between the atlas and seal!

    Re: I Can not decide!!!!! Would lover you opinions!!!

    that looks really really nice damian. I think that is more of what im looking for. Sucks thats its a $3000.00 option!!

    Re: I Can not decide!!!!! Would lover you opinions!!!

    tooner the belts are a nice touch ..

    throt..

    Re: I Can not decide!!!!! Would lover you opinions!!!

    What do you think.... Red, yellow,gray on sand

    Re: I Can not decide!!!!! Would lover you opinions!!!

    slate gray is a very classy color... you can put either Sand or Natural brown on it to make the car's interior pop out! you can put black on that and it makes the combo more agressive! ... just a thought! good luck.

    Thanks!... It does grab attention whenever people see it.

    Re: I Can not decide!!!!! Would lover you opinions!!!

    I don't subscribe to worrying about an interior color that might show dirt. I want it to show the dirt, so that I can see it and clean it. Who wants to sit in a nasty-a$$ grungy interior, of any color? Who's o.k. with sitting in filth, just as long as they can't "see" it? Do you buy black bed sheets so you won't have to wash them as often? Yuck.

    Re: I Can not decide!!!!! Would lover you opinions!!!

    Its just that ingrain factor , you just can not shift it you end up shifting the top coat...

    throt..

    Re: I Can not decide!!!!! Would lover you opinions!!!

    I don't have those problems. You gotta use the right cleaning methods. Getting dirt out of a deep grain is a piece of cake, and besides, there is no deep grain in Porsche leather. And lastly, the dirt only gets on your interior if you bring it in there on you. I suppose I'm a bit freakish in that respect.
