Default Sapphire blue with red & black interior??? Help!!!

Changing from a pre-owned 991 GTS to a C4S 991.2 and need to confirm the build spec very soon.

Now I love the Sapphire blue exterior and really want to order it. My favorite interior choice is Red/Black, looks fantastic.....just can't work out if they go together or not? Have googled this combination but can only find all red int with Sapphire.

I am building my dream car so really want to get it right. I know it's very much a personal preference but.....any thoughts?

Thanks

IMO, that combo would scream superman! The closest I would go to that is full black leather with red deviated stiching.

Thanks white rock.....looks pretty cool. It's just I don't want to get it then be disappointed.

The Red/black interior goes with loads of other colours silver, grey, black or white but I love the Sapphire blue.

Hoping for some positive feedback to convince me to push the button.

Black with Red stiching.

And I agree that the red/black leather option looks great. But I would for sure not get it with yellow or macadamia

As long as you keep the dream car for a long long time, get what what you want. This color combo of blue/red/black will NOT do well at resale (if a concern).

It's your car, if you don't care, get what you like

Wouldn't do it. If that combination is what you truly want and you plan to keep the car for a long time then go for it. But since you have doubts and that combination is extremely rare then don't do it
There's a reason why that combination is rare.

I wouldn't do it....I love sapphire blue but that much red, ugh. But in the end, it will be your car and you have to get what makes YOU happy, not anyone else. Good luck!

Did you consider Blue/chalk with deviated silver stitching? Or as above, black with $thousands in deviated red stitching (don't forget steering column casing in leather with deviated stitching - goes well with the top of the dash)
I think the black/Bordeaux would be tough with a bright blue.
I wanted to do the same interior with Graphite, but it just doesn't look right too me, so I'm sticking with basic black.
Starting from the interior out, I could see white, blacks, agate, GT Silver and maybe midnight blue. But that's me - it's you're $$$.

I wouldn't have thought to order this combination, but the thread you posted shows a good looking car!

Default C'mon!

I think that it would look fantastic, would do it myself if I had the courage.
Important however, go with black wheels, and no yellow calipers (red only) or colored crests on wheels.

Are you superman?

Do you dream of being superman?

Do you wear glasses during the day and take them off to save people?

If you answer Yes to any of the questions above then it's the right color combo for you.

Haha you beat me to it. Was just headed back in to edit my response... Couldn't have said it better myself.

Also, no question that the colors go well together because they absolutely do! It's just whether you like them together and whether or not you (or your alter ego) have the personality to match!!
