    GT-2 Interior, a la Henry Ford

    Henry Ford: "You can have any color you want, as long as its black"
    This long laughed about quotation came to mind as I was conferring with my Porsche dealer on the specs for my new GT-2. When I told him what leather color I wanted, his reply was "You can have any color you want, as long as its black or gray."
    This seems just incredible on a car at this price level, where the order sheet allows an almost dizzying array of interior tweaks.

    Did you get the one Barrier GT2 Allocation? I was Number 2 in line.

    Re: GT-2 Interior, a la Henry Ford

    Did you know Dr. Porsche and Henry Ford were buddies before the war? Meaning: they probably thought the same about "frivolous" customizations and were focussed instead on giving the best possible product in the most efficient way possible. (funny how that would come to mean a dazzling choice of options TODAY)

    The GT-2 is a serious car so at least Ferdinand got his way with it.

    OTOH, the "Marketing Department" offers travesties like photo below.

    Black interiors are _good_.



    Re: GT-2 Interior, a la Henry Ford

    Is the picture bad (as in "is it supposed to be red") or this this ORANGE ?!?

    Re: GT-2 Interior, a la Henry Ford

    The picture is bad. It's actually supposed to be fluorescent orange .

    Re: GT-2 Interior, a la Henry Ford

    Had to go out of state to order the car, after a vigorous and futile search of all local dealers

    It's terracotta, with Alu Design and Stone Grey inserts. Granted, both Terracotta and Stone Grey have a genuine talent to look terrible on photos. IMHO, whoever has ordered this materpiece deserves to have both eyes gouged away with a rusty spoon.

    Congratulations on your order. The 2008 GT2 is definitely in short supply. Hopefully, it'll get better in the next couple of years (although the first allocations of the facelifted GT2 will probably be hard to get too).

    Regarding the interior, it's because of the Alcantara inserts, which are only available in dark grey. Unless you want to order a - to put it kindly - BOLD interior, black or dark grey are the only choices.

    I doubt Porsche would let you order a GT2 without Alcantara inserts either, as they are supposed to be the signature of the GT models.

    The pic seems "accurately" color balanced. The silver/alumiums of the interior _are_ neutral (according to the amateur Photoshop checking I just did) and the white exterior mirror looks about right for greenish fluorescent lighting.

    FWIW.

    Do you ever think of the joking that the guys at Porsche must do when they assemble an interior like this? Might be interesting question to ask if you ever get a chance during a factor tour. Probably won't get an honest answer though.

    Oh la la!

    I guess it is the same color you ordered on your new car
