Espresso is beautiful and the best brown Porsche has ever maid. Go for it, maybe its the last chance to get it since on the new Panamera and Cayenne you cannot order it anymore.

I have GT Silver with espresso/cognac. I thought I would tire of the espresso ... who wants brown? In reality the espresso is the best part of the interior. Deviated stitching is probably a "must" though.

I would have loved to do Espresso with GT Silver deviated stitching and CXX Anthracite Gray brushed aluminum GT3/GT4 dash/door/center console trimŚbut those three items would have been $10,000, and I just couldn't get there. Maybe if I'd skipped PTS and gone with GT Silver?

This is a very interesting question. I just bought my wife a BMW M550i. Car is silver with mocha leather. While I'm ok with the look, my wife thinks it's too "mature" and hates it on a "sporty" car. It's not bad where we can't live with it, but frankly if there was a silver/black and a silver/mocha on the lot I would've picked silver/black.

I have the Espresso leather in my 2013 C2S and love it. Although it is not a daily driver, the car has 41,000 miles on the clock. The interior looks brand new. Pictures do not even come close to accurately depicting the color. It is a deep rich brown. I think I am correct is saying that GT Silver has brown tones in it and would match with Espresso very nicely. To me the natural fit for the trim would be carbon fiber with its silver color connecting the inside with the outside. I say an Espresso interior with carbon fiber and it looked very good. Have "fun" with your choice.

That's gotta be something to see. Also love the umber interior, but have not seen it in a 911.

Pics, please!

I wouldn't necessarily have spec'd Espresso Natural Leather but I think it looks gorgeous in this (leather-stuffed to the gills) 991 C4S in GT Silver.





I tried adding more interior shots and am not sure why they didn't upload.

Non-deviated stitching in Espresso is the same colour as the leather?

I'd much rather do black/Bordeaux red. Brown is OK in small doses, but Porsche really overdoes it in their interiors sometimes. Brown dash, brown door panels, brown steering wheel, it's just too much. The black/Bordeaux combo strikes a great balance and red looks way better than brown IMHO.

I passed on a bunch of used 911s with brown/blue interiors. They can be done right, but I don't think Porsche does them the way I like them.

I would hate to be buying a brand new 911 today. Too many great choices. I bought a 2013 C2S a year ago and it had the Natural Espresso leather interior. I was hesitant at first. Brown interiors are for old folks. Or so I thought. These days you see more and more high-end vehicles being delivered with brown interiors. Bugattis, Rollers, Bentleys. Espresso is a luxurious color. From ten feet away it looks almost black. As others have already said, it looks much better in person.

My personal favorite is Espresso/Cognac with FC trim.

If you're worried about the resell value. Don't be. The car will sell when you're ready to sell. 911s with CF interiors get a lot of attention on the used car market. Every time I went to bid on a C2S with CF trim they were already sold.
