I have a 4S Volcano Grey/Bordeaux-Black/Turbo wheels that has been sitting at the port for about three weeks. That's my vote!

Honestly the best color will be the one that puts a smile on YOUR face.

Don't sweat your color choice too much. If you like it enough to put it on your list of top three - it's guaranteed a month into ownership you'll think the color you chose was the greatest one ever!

They are all good, but I'd go with number one as I love the 911 Turbo wheels!

I've gone Carmine Red, black full leather interior & 911 Turbo wheels. Mine is built and booked for collection in the UK on March 1st

I think the Panamera looks and feels a lot more luxurious with a tan interior rather than black; the nuances of the design come out more.
Grey leather reminds me of well used towncars; brown or Mokka does not seem to age well (it looks dated very quickly); red is gorgeous, exciting and fun - but one will get tired of looking at it after the first few weeks?
Black is neutral, non-controversial, a safe bet - but also a bit vanilla in my humble opinion.

I love Porsches two tone interiors, they look stunning. Just be aware that the versions with light colored carpets are really sensitive to dirt and require frequent scrubbing

Wonder if I should have opted for the two tone crayon/black interior, but felt at the time of locking down my spec that classic black leather was the best choice with Carmine Red.

And the Carmine Red was a real last minute impulse decision. On my way to the Porsche Centre on that day I was 95% fixed on Volcano Grey with crayon/black interior!




My final combo choice!

I really like the two tone. I ordered black or black and asked if i could change, unfortunately they said it was too late and could add months on the delivery.
The red is very nice , you made a great choice, watch out for speeding tickets.

Night Blue is a classy colour. I would go black/crayon or black/beige personally.

Just built a Carrara white metallic with leather black/ saddle brown for my wife. Classy look I think. Blacked out door handles and window trim. Sets it off.
