Hi Needmoregarage,

Thank you for your interest, however, we do not offer the foam and the covers separately.

I like the fabric in the picture you attached, and if interested, we have access to a number of automotive fabrics that could compliment the color combination of your GT4. Take a look at our website for a sample of the fabrics available, and examples of some of our customersĺ seats. One of the examples is a picture of a Black/White/Red Tartan in our Agate Grey GT4 (with grey stitching verses your red).

Regards - Kim


I have a 981 Spyder in GT Silver and classic garnet red interior with red LWBS. Any pics with these seat? Trying to determine best combo.

Can someone please chime in with some opinion - as I don't want to miss an opportunity here. I am going Pepita - with extra foam for my aging frame......and I THINK black white...but I have red belts and red stitching in my Black Touring with steel (red) calipers and a red porsche rocker logo....so simple question is, am I missing an opportunity to zip up my interior to Black-Red Pepita or three colour Black-White- Red? Feel free to tell me I am way overthinking this....

I don't think you can go wrong with either. For me I also have red stitching, red calipers, red steering wheel marker and I wanted something that would tie it all together and it did exactly that! Kim can always work with you sending you different samples until you are 100% happy! Good luck and post pictures when it's all done!

Check - yes, way over thinking this!!
Personally I'd definitely go black/white/red.

For pictures of LWB with red leather, if you GOOGLE “black white red Pepita Spyder” you will see a few examples.

One of the most striking examples uses the Red/Black/White Pepita.

Couple of questions:

I have concerns putting White on a seat cover. Will these stain or for some one who drives all summer with Windows open will the dust that settles in my car give me reason for concern?

Also- the 1 inch memory foam; which I would have serious interest if I pull the trigger, should one have any long term concerns??. For example- over time would they develop any permanent creases ect

Thanks

I ordered the Black-White Pepita only because I have zero red in my car. Miami Blue, PCCB and standard belts/stitching. If I had red calipers I think I would have gone the other way on the inserts. IMO the red adds a good bit to the look.

Awesome! Some good pictures and ideas here. I'm picking up a Miami Blue RS with yellow stitching/seat belts today, thinking about doing some inserts for it. Just plain black/white, or any ideas what else might look good?

I think black/white pepita on a MB car with yellow accents would look amazing!

We have a set in our GT4, as do a number of customers without any signs of deterioration. Given the source of our foam, we are confident in its durability.

As an option, we have recently incorporated a 1 inch memory foam into the seat and backrest with very good feedback from a customer who wanted to minimize the toll on his back during long drives.

Feel free to call or PM if you would like to discuss our foam cushions further.

Kim

Do you or will you offer a rewrap option on customers' inserts from your swatch of fabrics at a lower cost? BTW I have 4 way seats incoming on my GT3T and looking to go with either houndstooth or pepita.

Hi Jim,

Hopefully you’ve received the swatches I sent. I think a simple answer regarding the white is, it depends on how you use your car. Leisurely = less chance of getting dirty. Lots of track time = greater chance. Fortunately, all of our seat inserts are scotchgarded for added durability.

Regarding the memory foam, we are using top quality memory foam that is used in commercial grade memory foam mattresses with proven performance. To date, we’ve had nothing but positive feedback.

Thanks,
Kim
