Project successfully completed!
Before:



And after:



The boot originally came with black stitching from Suncoast (as others have said in previous posts). My wife is proficient at sewing, and was willing to attempt redoing the stitching in red by hand. We bought a few different spools of red embroidery thread on Amazon, we picked the best one, and then she tripled up the thread (because it was more fine than the stock thread) and she went at it. Here's the side by side of the original black and her re-stitched red version done by hand. It turned out perfect!




This is a great and manageable project and it really is an impactful upgrade. Thanks to all for the help and guidance on the process! Any questions, feel free to ask.

Hmmm... not feeling it. I think it's confusing I'd want to get in and drive a stick.

Not super common for automatics to have a shift boot, but not unheard-of either.

I like it. Does anyone know if this would work on a 2019 911.2 GTS? Thanks

Mine is a 2017 GTS, so yes it would work the same.

And to the doubters, I have a Macan with PDK too and it has a leather shift boot, not that plastic piece that I took out of the 911. Iím really happy with the change. Itís not that crazy!

Thinking of doing this on my 18 Targa. May be able to get my hands on a leather boot with deviated stitching, but it does not have any kind of plastic or infrastructure to it, just the leather boot. Looks like from previous pictures that if you order the Suncoast version there is some kind of plastic structure that gives it definition where it connects to the console. I'd buy the Suncoast version but don't want it to be the only piece in the car without deviated stitching. As opposed to previous poster, neither my wife nor I is proficient at triple-thread stitching. Any advice appreciated.

I'm happy with the look given my car's red stitching and painted key, even more so now that Porsche has basically killed the PDK shifter off!

awesome look!

Wish I found out about this before I did mine! It is a Boxster part, but pretty sure it fits the 991.

If you're asking about the link Porsche_nuts put up, yes that's the one I ordered and it fit perfectly. I have an 18 Targa 4S. You'll also need the console trim piece that goes around the hazard and lock buttons. Suncoast #SKU991553

Excellent! Thanks you very much. Yes, I was referring to the the link from Porsche_nuts put up. Question. Does anyone have the actual part number for the shifter with gray stitching? Suncoast doesn't list part numbers. I would like two order from Sonnen as they sponsor this forum. Just need to be sure I get the correct shifter. Thanks

If anybody else is interested in doing this mod, I have a black shift boot (complete with the 7MT ****) and the black trim piece required for a 991.1. (Not sure if it's the same for the 991.2 but it likely is.) Never got the chance to do the install and traded out of the car last week. List on these parts is about $300. I'd like $160 for both.

Trim piece is new in the box, the boot is in excellent condition. This is the photo from the top of the thread if you don't want to scroll all the way up. The boot I have has the black stitching and the Carrera trim plate, as this one does.
