Will do. Still have a few weeks to make some "minor" changes. I love it as is though. Been building it for almost a year.
I am hoping my dealer gives me the right amount of equity in my current lease at turn in to help cover some of those "extras".
Besides my current track car (a racing yellow 981S), this will be the first of 7 DD P cars that I've leased that will not be Jet Black Metallic.
That Carmine Red just grabbed me for some reason. The last 7 have all been black.
I will post pics when it comes in (just in time to start daily driving with the top down here in the Northeast).
This is from the build sheet but I did not do the model or Porsche delete on the rear...

Great looking build. Love to see some interior pics of the build if you can post. If not I'll wait till May for the real thing. Congratulations. She is stunning.

Thanks. I'll wait for the real thing to arrive and post many pics then. There are some significant differences between the build sheet pics and what the car will actually look like. Not the first time I've seen that happen.
This pic shows the seatbelts coming through the front of the car:




I will surely post a lot of pics once the car is in my driveway. Thanks again for the kind words.

Very nice, can’t wait to see the actual pics!

My only suggestion is to add leather visors. I did this and love them.

I somewhat regret not ordering leather around the rear view mirror as well.

Are you putting aftermarket wheels on the car? Black wheels would look incredible with that color combo.

Might have the wheels painted in satin black Agree with the color scheme.

:Leather visors...yeah? Ya think? Hmmm...

Guess we'll be talking in May, 2020 then.
If someone makes me a decent offer on the one I have now (same car TTS Cab) in May, I'd sell it for sure. There is about $45K equity in the turn in residual,
Looking forward to that new carmine red. I heard it was the fastest color...

My dealer recommended it, they spec them on all of their Cabrios (base 911 up to 911 turbos).

I don’t recommend deviated stitching on them, but they look very nice in black leather.

These should be an easy aftermarket swap if you decide to hold off.

Nice build and congrats. Did you forget to add the heated steering wheel? It's a great feature especially if you are in the northeast.

Also, are you sure you want the leather air vents slats and not the air vent surrounds in leather? The air vents with the deviated stitching stands out more than just having the slats in leather.

The slats will be painted red I believe. Not everything I selected is showing up on this build sheet. I will be going through the build sheet a few times before it's finalized, but I'm pretty sure I asked for air vent slats painted in Bordeaux red color.
I can't to both. The system won't let me do the painted slats AND the surround stitching. It's either one or the other.
Like I said, I will be making changes to this build for the next few weeks before it's finalized.
Thanks for the info and advice.
