    Holy Crap...GT Silver/Carrera Red










    Re: Holy Crap...GT Silver/Carrera Red

    Looks Arctic to me.

    Nice combo though.

    I couldn't suffer bright red interior myself though, I'd have instant road rage driving around in that.

    Re: Holy Crap...GT Silver/Carrera Red

    Holy crap!...to much red interior

    Re: Holy Crap...GT Silver/Carrera Red

    I don't get it.

    Gotta be a very "special" buyer for that car! "Special" buyers will be required for the car's entire service life.

    At least the red calipers now make more sense.

    Re: Holy Crap...GT Silver/Carrera Red

    Oh my, isn't that RED!

    Re: Holy Crap...GT Silver/Carrera Red

    I actually like red leather, but this is yet another example of how not to do a bicolor interior. The way the 997's interior panels are designed make that exercise quite difficult. Isn't it ironic that it's much easier to produce a convincing custom-made interior in the cheaper Boxster than the iconic Carrera?

    On the other hand, GT silver suits Carrera Red really well (probably thanks to the lavender secondary tone in that color). Meteor, slate, and of course black/basalt would work great as well.

    Re: Holy Crap...GT Silver/Carrera Red

    The red looks very saturated...Nice idea but I think it's going to be a bargain when it comes to re-selling.....

    Re: Holy Crap...GT Silver/Carrera Red

    Man oh man does that car need lowering.

    Re: Holy Crap...GT Silver/Carrera Red

    Too much red for me.

    Re: Holy Crap...GT Silver/Carrera Red

    Waaay too much red.

    Re: Holy Crap...GT Silver/Carrera Red

    I'm usually a huge fan of red interiors, especially over silver... But the way that red looks on my monitor is too lip-stick-ish, needs toned down a degree or two... And turbo wheels do nothing for me...

    Re: Holy Crap...GT Silver/Carrera Red

    Carrera red? Looks like dog's knob red to me.

    AWWGHHHH! "Thanks" for the visual. I think I'm gonna "barf." (pun intended)

    Re: Holy Crap...GT Silver/Carrera Red

    I think the color combo is great. I have always wanted to get a red interior. I don't like the wheels though.

    Yeah, me neither. Finally saw the combo in person and gotta say they are best for the Turbo. Just a little too busy for the Carrera. They "counteract" the busy Turbo exterior well; they are kinda "what's the point?" and a bit too busy for the Carrera (talking looks-wise only). IMO, of course.

    Re: Holy Crap...GT Silver/Carrera Red

    Add a little lip gloss and you'd have a real pimp mobile.

    Re: Holy Crap...GT Silver/Carrera Red

    Far too much color for me!

    Re: Holy Crap...GT Silver/Carrera Red

    I find red interiors to be very feminine.
    My wife would love it!

    Re: Holy Crap...GT Silver/Carrera Red

    Interesting - this appears to be a custom carrera red / black two tone interior. The standard carrera red includes carpets, upper door and dash all in carrera red. (confirmed on the configurator). Imagine how bright that would look? That said I dont mind it. I think it need the alu centre console to tone down the looks a little though.

    Familiar with dog's knobs are you?
