+1! All the way! Silver & black is obviously the conservative option but plain and boring.

Out of those I would choose GT Silver and Truffle Brown with deviated stitching.

However to me the better choice would be GT Silver with Red/Black two-tone.

Silver on BROWN!!!??? that should be some sort of fashion crime. I know the 992 is trying to be some kind of "throwback" homage and all but I'd leave the 70's and 80's with their horrid fashion sense right where they belong and go silver or crayon on black interior. In my opinion, the exterior of a car should make the statement where the interior should merely compliment it. Kind of like wearing the right color undershirt.

The 992 I test drove last week was Silver (don't know exactly if Dolomite or GT) with Truffle interior and looks stunning on the flesh. It would be my choice between those three specs. Excuse the crappy iPhone pictures.

I think GT Silver and black with deviated stitching is a classic Porsche combination that never grows old. But I'm biased.
Chalk with black, two non-colors- strikes me a a bit boring.
Chalk would be stunning with the truffle brown.

Truffle all the way. After a little over 2 years Bordeaux/black is getting boring.

Apparently, I am the only one that thinks truffle brown is the exact same color as dog s#it..... Or that mixing silver with brown is the most horrid color combo possible.......
