I personally hate tan or brown leather in most cars (jaguars and bentleys excepted)

gray looks great in my zenith blue 996

I love my tripple blue cab.

You need to add metrepol blue as an interior option in your poll.

Thanks for the responses.

P-Car - I've heard this sentiment a lot... Unfortunately, I actually prefer the brown shades... but I just think that limits me too much as I'm looking to get into my first 996...

Stan -- I only included the colors that I was going back-and-forth between in the poll. But you're right, in retrospect, I should have included blue for reference...

metropol blue is my favorite,too. the porsche beige is too yellowish for my taste. the natural leather brown is a good alternative albeit at a higher price.

I really like it, although the color is difficult to capture in photos, in bright daylight it is a mid blue but at night it really appears a lot darker (but never a royal blue like it sometimes looks)

I have the full gray leather which I think works very well

However (controversially for this forum) I may be trading it to get into a cayman 's'

totally agree with both these sentiments

the beige can look like babyshit yellow

the natural brown is much better, and pretty unique, although I still think its suited to aston martins and jags etc more.... it just doesn't feel very germanic.

How about a choice for BLUE!!!!!

I vote for Blue!!!

picked up my Lapis Blue C4S with Blue leather interior on Friday.

My second choice would have been Black. Just my opion but I didn't like beige. Almost bought a Lapis Blue with a beige interior but I couldn't get past the beige dash or beige steering wheel.

I agree with you Igancio.

Funny, my C4S is the same color and options as the C4S on your signature.

I like Natural Brown if you can find it. I have the Savanah Beige, thought I would get used to it...it is the only regret I have, wish I got Metropol Blue. Don't care much for grey interior with any color. Just my $0.02.

It is tough to capture in photos - in sunlight the car has a purplish almost lavender color to it. I almost ordered a Boxster in Zenith/Gray. Great combo!

I have a Lapis Blue C2. The interior is Graphite Gray with deviating carpeting in Metropol Blue. I think that combination is very nice looking. The Metropol Blue carpet really ties the exterior color to the inside and also makes the interior a little darker and gives it some depth. Here are some pic of my interior combination. Sorry for the poor quality.

I've got the same combination as gota911.

Lapis blue exterior and center console, graphite grey leather and metropol blue deviating carpet and stitching, with a full OEM wood kit thrown in for good measure (it's a garage queen, not a track car)
