    Black, Cocoa, Yellow - color combination

    Hi everyone, I am fairly new to this board and not even close to reading all posts but I want to say thank you already for giving me a lot of inspiration and knowledge. I am from Germany and about to order my first porsche. And as with many of you, the color part proves to be the most difficult decicion by far. I dont like black interior and the light brown gets dirty quickly and reflects the light too much. So now i am really in love with the cocoa brown. So far so good. Many of you recommend something grey on the outside to match but somehow i really only like black metalic as exterior color. So now the difficult parts comes and thats why i ask for advise: i have never seen the combination of black ext., cocoa int. and yellow seatbelts as well as maybe the cupholder front in yellow. the rest all leather, pcm included. The car i am looking at would be a C4S with ceramic brake which is also yellow, hence my idea for the seatbelts :-). black and cocoa are just too dark alone and need some color somewhere i think but again i never have seen that combination before and i am not sure how it would look. Any thoughts?
    Good weekend to all,

    Hi Andreas, welcome on Board
    Black exterior + Cocoa interior looks nice. You may search the 997 Turbo Board for Rami's pictures (the car is atlas/cocoa, but this very dark grey could give you at least an idea about how Basalt/Cocoa may look like).
    I agree that this combo needs some light elements not to appear too dark. Though I wouldn't add yellow elements: some nice silver trim (rear centre concole, seatbelts etc.) should look very nice IMO (again: Rami's car is a good example with quite a lot of exclusive options in silver trim).

    great! thanks. actually atlas does look great with cocoa and is almost as dark as black metalic.
    Rami's TT looks awesome i have to say.

    Re: Black, Cocoa, Yellow - color combination

    Hows it goin, My c2s is due in tomorrow in basalt black / cocoa brown and to be honest with you I ordered what I wanted, not what will protect the trade in value.

    I personally would be wary of the seat colour belt issue as you could have too much going on, but hey thats the beauty of it - you choose, its your money!

    I shall post some pics tomorrow after I collect my black baby.

    Cocoa Brown works so well and is has more depth and warmth than grey / black interiors.


    Re: Black, Cocoa, Yellow - color combination

    Congrats Paul. Looking forward to seeing your pics...

    Re: Black, Cocoa, Yellow - color combination

    That would definitely be my choice. Great colar combos. Especially going for the yellow seat belts adds a little of flash to the car.
