Default Question about custom leather options

First of all thank you very much for this great thread!

I am just about to finalize my configuration and I haven't found any information about the following question:

My current plan is to go with full leather black + deviating stitching in chalk or silver. As another contrast I would like to have the middle of the door in a lighter leather like chalk.
Is there any option (and if, which code?) to have a solution similar like this one offered from Mercedes:




Door top: black
Door middle: chalk
Door bottom: black


Thank you very much for your help!

Eduardo will know for sure (most likely), but if it isn’t on the Configurator or a Z option on the dealer’s computer your only probable chance is to ask for CXX special request option from Porsche Exclusive.
In case you were wondering, it won’t be cheap if they will do it. When I asked about adding matching GT Silver stitching for the steering wheel on my LTS car, I was quoted $4750.00. To change the thread color on the steering wheel.

Default Scottsdale Auction Week Report

Went to Gooding this morning for special breakfast with David Gooding sponsored by Chubb.
Later attended the Keith Martin (Sportcar Market Letter) panel discussion on the state of the
collector market:



Our own C.J. 'Ichiban' was seating in just in front of me...so our forum was
well represented there!

https://www.sportscarmarket.com/about/keith-martin

***
Interestingly one of the cars there at Gooding for auction tomorrow is a
1985/1986 Porsche 944 Turbo Cup Car that I crewed for (mostly fueling)
in the SCCA Showroon Stock series - 1986 Escort Endurance Championship!



https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1986_S...e_Championship

I knew well Jerry Nelson, one of the drivers & dealer principal at Schneider & Nelson
Porsche in NJ. We took this car everywhere - Sears Point, Mid-Ohio, Mosport, Nelson
Ledges, etc. You know you are getting old when they are auctioning off a car you (in
your mid-thirties then) actively participated in its racing history when it was brand new!



https://www.goodingco.com/vehicle/19...4-turbo-cup-2/

***
Missed the auction for a 1977 VW Cabriolet that I was trying to buy at Barrett-Jackson today (Thursday).




http://msclassiccarsllc.com/VehicleDetails.aspx?vid=505

The seller's staff at the event gave me wrong auction time info on the lot. Really dissappointed!
Sold for $23.5K plus commission. Not a bad price for the condition. I would have bought it had
I been there.

***
Back to Gooding tomorrow. Tom Scott's Pre-A 356 Cabriolet for sale there. Too expensive for
me...but just beautiful!



But notice its color...'Fashion Grey', an original Pre-A color you can still order PTS today!

Spot on about pricing. I spoke with porsche about doing this sort of thing on a Boxster and they said that the second you touch the doors, it's a $9,000 exercise. This was as of about 2 weeks ago.

Default 'Lizard Green'...

Some of you might have noticed a new 'Special Color' introduced
on the newly announced .2 991 gt3 RS. It's only an additional
$4,220. And you don't have to deal with the 'drama' & 'suspense'
surrounding PTS, when/if they offer that. It looks to me to be a
solid/uni color but we will need to confirm that.


If history is a guide, 'Lizard Green' will be included as an approved PTS color in
a few years at PAG. But for the present, it's an 'exclusive' to the .2 991 gt3 RS!
Undoubtedly PAG has seen the increased interest in the PTS 'greens' that are
being ordered in record numbers for the .2 991 gt3. These not only include 'Signal
Green' & 'Viper', perennial favorites, but also the more 'yellow-green' vintage/historic
hues which include 'Gelbgrün/Lime Green'. 'Chartreuse/Lindgrün', 'Birch/Lichtgrün',
'Willow' & 'Olive'. 'Lava Orange' & 'Miami Blue' are now in the general Porsche
models color offerings. Clearly PAG is trying to give us their customers some bright
colors that normally would only be available to us via PTS. Yet, as 'special' colors
available on demand, they don't carry the cost & drama now associated with PTS.

'Lizard Green' is a welcome addition to Porsche's color palette. I predict will prove
to be a memorable & highly popular color. And it will take it's place of honor in the
pantheon of historic colors that will be talked about in future years. So just as the
RS model recently gave us the beautiful 'RS Orange' (.1 997) & 'Ultraviolet' (.1 991),
this new 'Lizard Green' will be one for the ages!

Love the color!

I have a less flamboyant order in with Porsche for a Carrera C2 with a V260 vehicle enter the body shop date of 3/9/18 and delivery sometime in May.
Pretty exciting for me as it's the first time I've done a custom build.
You helped me nail down including option CZW Extended Interior Package, Dashboard Trim in Leather.
Here's the final build code if you'd like to check it out:
http://www.porsche-code.com/PJS3RVP7
I feel fortunate to get the allocation as my understanding is from talking to dealers that most all the remaining production for 2018 is going to Europe.

I've been searching for a reference I think I read on rennlist but can't find it now.
It's I believe a CXX option that can be ordered where Porsche will create a photo album of your car during the various stages of production.
Can you give some detail on this option or point me to where it's already been written up?

Very much appreciated!

Congratulations. Glad I could provide a tiny bit of help on that!

Darrell:

I talked about a Porsche option that documented some unique options to
the car being installed by the 'Exclusive Manufaktur' at their after-assembly
workshop. That was around 1000 euros back a few years ago.






****
There is now perhaps an even more expensive photo book that might trace
the full assembly process of 'your' car in Zuffenhausen.

You need to talk to Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur in Atlanta & ask what are
the current options available to you regarding these photo books during the
build!

I have ordered the photo book which covers production so quite thrilled how it is going to look like as Exclusive did not have a sample in Stuttgart at the Exclusive Manafuktur. They showed me a couple of other books (see example from Eduardo), but no one with this specific content. It costs 1790 Euro. Attached the German order form (sorry no english...)

Fyi: For those interested.
I emailed [email protected] explaining my interest in obtaining a photo book of my car during production.
I received a nice reply (see copy below) explaining the program.
Apparently if you want a photo book you have to purchase it at the time your order is placed.
The email also contained attached .pdfs for ordering the photo book in english, one like the one above, with a cost of $1,790 euro and another one with a cost of $1,190 euro if factory delivery.

I hope this mail finds you well.
Thank you very much for your mail and the interest in our products.
Attached you can find all information regarding the individual photobooks.
Unfortunately it’s not possible to provide digital photos on the ground that we only organize a photo shooting especially for your car when you place an order.
If you have any further questions please do not hesitate to contact us.
