    Special leather interiors?

    Any experts have any idea as to whether some of the brown leather shown in the watch straps in this link would a) make a good interior color for a 997 b) be possible to replicate by Porsche?

    Re: Special leather interiors?

    I'm unsure which brown you're looking for.
    But yes, Porsche can replicate them. However, you need to keep in mind that some interior parts will be black. Choose your color accordingly.

    Why not cocoa by the way?

    Le Chef,
    The leathers on the straps look quite nice. Depending on the one you're looking for, it could work. As to it being possible, I think anything with Porsche is possible as long as you're willing to pay for it.

    Re: Special leather interiors?

    Por$che claims they will do anything $pecial for the $pecial cu$tomer. Not worth it, IMHO. Six more months of waiting and lots of cash: for what (compared to Cocoa)? Would be a special gift a movie star or Bill Gates would give themselves to alleviate boredom.

    Re: Special leather interiors?

    A number of the colors shown would compliment Porsche's existing color range. However I do feel that the situation you are proposing requires further consideration. During the last true custom body era of the 1920's and early 30's. The owners of such bespoke vehicles would often have an extra hide stored away in case repairs were required during their ownership of said vehicle. If Porsche were to do the custom interior I doubt that this may be possible. Secondly before casting one's lot in with Porsche, I would consult with some of the excellent antique vehicle restoration shops in the Chicago area as to your proposition. You may find that you would have more control of the work being done and get exactly what you want.

    Have you been to the exclusive section on Porsche's website?

    They have updated the samples check out the 911 cabriolet and the meteor grey Cayenne interior.

    It may decrease the wait time if you order one of these interiors.

    C'est moi

    My two major addictions are cars and watches, with wine thrown in as a side bar. I need to rob a couple of banks to keep up with some of the guys on the watch forums!

    Re: C'est moi

    yeah, thats really true, some of the guys from Asia have collections that really amaze me.
    i'm pretty low key: only have 2 watches, planing on a third.

    Re: C'est moi

    Most of those straps look like Croc/Alligator. I know how much one of those straps cost, I know how much a pair of shoes in those hides cost (depending on bench made or not $$ to $$$$$$). I would HATE to see how much Porsche would charge to do that for an interior. I remember seeing a Benz 500 from the 30's with hand stiched bright red horny toad skin interior. Hundresds of 3 inch square hides stiched together. It was amazing, but gut renching at the same time...

    As connoisseur mentions it would most likely be much more cost effective to have a restorer or high end interior upholsterer do the job after you got the car. It would also be closer to you and let you see the hides before hand.

    I've always wanted an interior done in saddle leather, maybe with the seat centers in quilted suede... I think it would look good with one of Porsche's dark greys.

    I can do the horny toad bit without having the real thing in the car to remind me!
    I like the color of the leathers I showed but not the actual material. For the car I would prefer cow to reptile
    As to the saddle leather and suede look you describe - it's a little like an Aston Martin Vanquish I saw at a dealer not long ago - just stunning.
