    Our 2nd 997S

    Hi guys!!!

    Some of you might remember the 997S seal grey and beige interior colour we had(look my gallery if not )it was one of the very first 997S to be delivered, and if you look in the very last pages of 997threads you will also see some pics with the white covers from factory etc..

    Well things have changed..but for good ...after having the seal grey example with only 2.000kms in the clock, we thought that its exterior colour was not our favourite , also the manual gear box was excellent (imo ), but my father wanted tiptronic s (can't argue with him about that )...so now we have now sitting in the garage beside our cayenne turbo another 997S in black(looks much better imo) and again with beige interior colour, but this time with some more options:-natural full leather,-bose sound system(we already had it),-electric roof,-multifunctional steering wheel(which I don't like, but well , can't argue ),-tiptronic s,-pcm + telephone card,-sport seats(this is probably the best option!!!!!, you can adapt the seat however you want, the only problem is the price of it,-red seat belts and may be some other options that now I can't remember ...My father ordered the PSE more than 2 months ago, but as we all know there are terrific problems from factory, and some dealers here in spain, installed the PSE as retrofit, and gaved some problems, so well we are still waiting after more than 2 months and no response from the dealer ...Ohhh one more thing.....AGAIN no sport chrono plus package .....hhmm, but who knows may be for the 3rd one

    Well here are a couple of pics....the car has know 1.000kms approximately

    Seeing carlo's pics pushed me to post our second 997S

    Re: Our 2nd 997S

    great photo's man, congrats on erm... your 2nd 997S? lol btw do the red seatbelts fit in nicely with the beige in your opinion?

    Re: Our 2nd 997S

    beautiful combination, congrats!

    Re: Our 2nd 997S

    Nice combo, great list of options, sorry you lost your 6-speed though. What's up with your Pop?? My 62-year-old mom wouldn't take an automatic tranny if you gave it to her, and paid for her gas for life!!! LOL!!!! Oh well, that's another beat-to-death thread. Black is beautiful, I have sadistic and masochistic addiction to them. Every new car I've bought since I was 16 years old has been black, with the exception of my silver truck. I'm so manic about my paint finishes, that with the big truck, I knew I'd go insane trying to keep up with that much surface area!

    Re: Our 2nd 997S

    beautiful, but IMO red seatbelts do fit nicer in a black interior...but that's only a minor prob.
    The beige is very nice and i regret not have taken it on my cab

    Re: Our 2nd 997S

    69, that's not really fair putting your mom up against anyone else She would probably put most guys on this board to shame given her past vehicle lineup.

    By the way I like the red belts, they trim the car nicely with the calipers, not too much bling.

    Re: Our 2nd 997S

    I'm just doing my job to keep the seniors young!! First it's driving an automatic, then it's using a golf cart instead of walking the course, then it's getting a handicap tag so you don't have to walk as far to buy groceries, and the next thing you know, you're shuffling down the hallway of a retirement home with a walker, and you need to holler for help just to get up out of a chair. It all starts when you get too lazy to shift the gears for yourself, and it's all downhill from there!!!

    Re: Our 2nd 997S

    I cringe to think what the painted sides of the 997's seat will look like after my kids have climbed in and out a few times . Do ALL versions of the 997 seats have painted sides, or only adaptive seats ?


    Re: Our 2nd 997S

    Nice color, congrat!

    Re: Our 2nd 997S

    LMAO

    Re: Our 2nd 997S

    Lookin' Good. Enjoy

    Re: Our 2nd 997S

    Great color Alex!

    Re: Our 2nd 997S

    All sport and adaptative seats have the grey back which is a great shame, it goes with black and grey interior but not the other colours IMO, same goes for the alu touches in the cockpit.
    Apart from that, very nice car Alex, congrats!

    Notice also the beige pocket at the back of the grey seat!!!
    THAT has actually been eliminated on 06 models, no more back pocket, which is very good thing if your interior is not black/ grey.

    Saw a superb 997 cab today, midnight blue, beige int, top down, perfect until I noticed the grey back of the seats! Ugly with beige and blue!!!

    So then the " std " base seat has ( hopefully ) just plain seat colored plastic ? Eliminating the seatback storage pouch would be even WORSE if you have kids - I'm always wiping shoe marks off my black full leather seats in the exact spots of the pouch and that lower part of the sides .
    I mean , it's a four seater and only kids fit in the back and they design these cool looking seats w/o regard to the fact they'll look thrashed almost immediately - not very smart for engendering customer satisfaction.

    Re: Our 2nd 997S

    I have the full leather regular seat and its leather covered in the back.

    Re: Our 2nd 997S

    I have std seats with sand beige full leather, and my seat backs are also in sand leather (no seatpocket)

    Protect seats Idea.

    get a roll of that clear frosted sticky plastic material in Office Depot that kids use to cover their school books.

    What's good about it is the adhesive is made to LAST and not dry out or stick aggressively and self-destructively to the borrowed school books.

    It'll match the silver about 100 percent.

    keeps scuff marks out of the paint until kids are old enough to not mess the seats up.

    Only the sport seats. Standard seats have leather back.

    Re: Our 2nd 997S

    Very nice combo!!!


    I personally like the back seats nie contrast!!!


    Im afraid though that you were mistaken and your car does not have BOSE Sound System,....:(


    It shows from the space in the head of the backseats!

    Might be that your dad fooled you :)

    Hi guys, thanks for the responses. ..the sport seats maked some type discussion , well imo, the sport seats with the beige interior and the grey back seats, looks awesome, very sporty, and if we add the tocuh of the red seat belts, the combination is even better, but that's only my ...

    Hey Dilinger, the car has bose sound system , imo its not the best option to go for, because I drive this particular car without music, in the other hand my father drives with music......., well in relation with the manual gear box and tiptronic s, may be it pushed my father to go for tiptronic the fact that we have a cayenne turbo, the only problem of automatic gear box in the 997S is that is limited to 5 gears, but well it is nice to feel the reaction of the car once you press the buttons in the steering wheel

    Re: Our 2nd 997S

    Lucky bastard. Great car.

    My only dig is that the Sport Chrono Pkg makes the most sense with the tip.

    Maybe you need a third one!

    Re: Our 2nd 997S

    Alex doesnt you car has the active subwoofer in the rear?
