Default TTS/TT Order

Hey All,

I've got some decisions to make, my dealer has been helping me figure out an alternative to a GT3 given the delays. I'll switch my GT3 deposit to a GT3 RS or Cayman GT4 and use the TT primarily on the street.

Now the tough thing I'm trying to figure out is the color combo. I'm probably leaning towards Sapphire Blue, but looking for some advice here as I haven't seen one in Sapphire Blue in person.

So here's the color combinations I'm considering, in rough order of preference:

1. Sapphire Blue over Espresso (change carbon to leather as well and go with yellow dials/belts)
2. GT Silver over Espresso
3. GT Silver over Red/black
4. Agate over Red/Black
5. Sapphire Blue over Black

Would appreciate the feedback from people who have seen some of these combos in person.

Thanks,
Nate

Nate,

Colors are very personal. I just saw a sapphire yesterday. It is a statement. Your other choices are much more low key.

Too personal of a choice.

In your line up I would pick agate on carrera red/black.

I got Agate over Red/Black, and I love it. I will admit that black exterior looks more menacing/cooler (but I did not want to live with swirl hell). The Red/Black interior is just lovely ... I would also have considered that with white car, but then the car disappear in a sea of white, and I feel it lost a lot of 'depth' / shape.

Thanks all for your help - wish I could find a Sapphire Blue one in stock locally to help make the decision.

I've ordered a white over black/red Macan Turbo for my wife, which is part of why I'm thinking of doing something with espresso this time around.

Otherwise - love the Agate over Black/Red...

Jason is a great guy. As for the interior, the two tone espresso and cognac would be my choice.

Thanks for the advice all, helped get me thinking.

Ended up going with Carrera White over Espresso/Congac on a 15 TTS.

Build doesn't lock for about 10 more days, so may change my mind again, but think it will be an nice combination.

White on Espresso/Cognac is very nice indeed!
It's the colour combo I went with on my TT Cab and wouldn't change a thing!

You should definitely get the deviating carpet in espresso. Less work to keep clean especially if you'll be driving it a lot.
