    My new 997S - Slate/Terracotta PICS

    So happy with the color combo...NOTE, I just ran over to take some pics (it just came in and hasn't been detailed yet)...check out the crests in the headrest and the rear center console sprayed in exterior color...i think it looks great...I'll take delivery on Friday and have pictures with it all cleaned up...

    I have a video of it too, but I don't know how to post that...

    Very cool Clayton. I like the interior a lot...are the pictures an accurate depiction of the color, or is terracotta darker/lighter in real life?

    Enjoy the car!

    Re: My new 997S - Slate/Terracotta PICS

    Nice! I like the terracotta better than the old Boxster red color.

    I think that this color would look great in a "deviated" interior with dark gray or black as the contrasting color. If the upper dash, upper door panels, door handles, and mats were the dark color it would have some great contrast. Or perhaps the carpets and upper dash in the dark color, with the mats in terracotta. In any case, there are some interesting possiblities, and none involve nasty stuff like CF or woodgrain!

    Post more pics when you can.

    Re: My new 997S - Slate/Terracotta PICS

    Like it! - I was toying with the idea of a grey/terracotta combination myself but in the absence of any samples and with most of the options still unavailable when I specced the car, I went for a safe choice (arctic/black) instead. Looks like a brave choice has paid off!

    what about a deviating carpet in graphite or natural grey?

    Re: My new 997S - Slate/Terracotta PICS

    I have to know: is terracotta *any* different from Boxster Red? From these pictures, it looks pretty darn close. Also, if these pictures are accurately showing through your camera/my monitor, they certainly don't support those who have insisted on this Board that terracotta is a brown color.

    Does anyone have firsthand insight into the real-life differences between terracotta and Boxster red?

    BTW, GREAT car, 997 Fan!!! Please post more pics of that interior!!!

    Re: My new 997S - Slate/Terracotta PICS

    they are pretty accurate...its more red than orange (i thought it might be the other way around)...its very rich and with the black rooflining and center console sprayed the exterior color, its very rich...for 95grand I think it better look like it and I believe this color does it justice...

    Re: My new 997S - Slate/Terracotta PICS

    Congrats!
    rare combination but very nice! Thanks for the pics!

    Re: My new 997S - Slate/Terracotta PICS

    Terracotta/Boxster red question...terracotta definiately has more of a rust/brown coloration than the orangy lobsterlike boxster red which I believe never held its own...this color is exactly that, terracotta, like the roof shingles...its classy and ballsy, but can be toned down...I don't think I will ever pull up to a light and have the same color combo next to me...the same can't be said for our artic/black friends...all the same, its an incredible car no matter what color...CAR MAGAZINE voted its Performance Car of the Year!

    Re: My new 997S - Slate/Terracotta PICS

    Great colour combo. My Slate Grey 997S has just arrived at the dealer's - I chickened out and went for black interior in the end, but was sorely tempted with what you have gone for.

    Great to see slate grey again - I am SO counting the days now....

    Re: My new 997S - Slate/Terracotta PICS

    Congrats! Looks awesome!

    Re: My new 997S - Slate/Terracotta PICS

    Great combination.Enjoy in good health!

    Re: My new 997S - Slate/Terracotta PICS

    Awesome! What a beautiful car. It's making my wait for my GT silver/Sea Blue 997S even more difficult!!!

    Re: My new 997S - Slate/Terracotta PICS

    That's a beautiful combo . Slate is one hell of a color.

    Re: My new 997S - Slate/Terracotta PICS

    Beautiful--great combination. Congrats.

    Re: My new 997S - Slate/Terracotta PICS

    Sweeeeet. Thanks for sharing. The more pics I see, the less anxious I feel about the flavor of my next Porsche.

    Re: My new 997S - Slate/Terracotta PICS

    Very nice stepping out there beyond Arctic/Black! Love the contrast and the color combinations. Awesome. We're doing 997 consoles now, and they do come out nicely, though not with as many curves as the 996 console did. Part of the new design.

    Lookin' good man. All the best and drive safe!

    Re: My new 997S - Slate/Terracotta PICS

    This is the nicest colour combo I have seen so far. Very nice is an understatement.

    Re: My new 997S - Slate/Terracotta PICS

    I love your colour combo!!

    Re: My new 997S - Slate/Terracotta PICS

    Beautiful but one suggestion : since light colored mats look trashed after a short while, you should get the dark " Natural Grey " floor mats now. They won't show dirt/grease spots and the contrast will bring alive your interior as well as harmonize the Slate -painted rear console . ( I'm thinking Slate or Seal with Cocoa for my next car )

    Re: My new 997S - Slate/Terracotta PICS

    what a unique interior... im not the biggest fan, maybe im too conservative but i prefer black, or the cocoa looked ok... its good you like it! have fun

    Re: My new 997S - Slate/Terracotta PICS

    You certainly deviate from the usual. And only PCCBs way from spending over 100k. On the natural grey floormats--not available any more.

    Re: My new 997S - Slate/Terracotta PICS

    wonderful!
    great combo!!!!
    terracotta and cocoa are best interiour colours!

    Re: My new 997S - Slate/Terracotta PICS

    Nice combo. IMO, terracotta IS diff than the boxster red; not as bright and def less red.

    Re: My new 997S - Slate/Terracotta PICS

    Beautiful shots. Please don't stop posting. :-)

    Did you have the choice of choosing deviated stitching. If so, how much does that option cost?

    Congratulations on the car. Can somebody PLEASE host his video!
