Finally took delivery of my C4S and couldn't be happier. Can't wait to break through 4krpm after 2k miles.
Here are some quick pics and yes she's dirty and the kids have been in the back!

A lot of people have commented that Agate Grey has a 'bit of brown' in it which is def. misleading. A lot of the perceived brown comes from reflections from the road surface/surroundings and of course it looks very different at dusk/dawn; part of the reason why I like it.

Ordered the black Sport Tex seats unseen and am very happy with the little details and contrast of the deviated stitching. Carbon key is painted which is Ok but I've now ordered the real deal which I think will be a nice touch.
Thanks to all on the forum as a lot of reading helped form my decisions so I hope these interior real world shots will help someone else.


BTW - I think the Bose sub is def. worth it over the standard system!

love the colour but then I am biased and also loving the detail on the seats, great choice! Smile

The cars looks brilliant, I'm trying to choose options for a 991.2 GTS which will be my first 911, and Agate is my favourite at the moment, also GT Silver or Guards Red are on my short list.
Can you describe how the sport tex seat material feels? Is it like nylon, cotton, plastic for instance? The seats certainly look smart, but I wonder if they will cause static.
I have been looking at the two tone black and red leather with the Agate - looks good on the configurator and 'lifts' the interior.
Thanks for posting.

Seats feel soft yet grippy and not at all 'plasticky'.
Haven't experienced any static, colour choice will be down to you.
There'll be a lot of indecision prior to the lockdown date but I'd suggest you decide on wether you want a 'sporty' look or a 'GT' look or something in-between. Good luck!

Thanks for that. Yes, playing on the configurator has become almost a daily affair! They look so good in lots of colours. Options wise I'm not too bad but the paint and interior is a real problem! Part of the trouble is it really grates on me to pay over £4k to get the GTS interior! Add one of the 'special' paint colours and it's £6k before any other options! I think it will be one of the above colours though - both GT Silver and Agate look sleek and classy and Guards with black wheels is a real looker with impact.

When they say Sport 'Tex' is that the new name for vinyl/faux leather or is there actually cowhide somewhere on it Dont know

I was looking at spec for a 718 and it mentions 'tex' as an option

Think of it as 'half-leather'. The 'Tex' sections are a combination of woven textile as you can see on the close up pick. No faux or fake animals AFAIK.
Nice review by zee German here:

I was very surprised to receive the new carbon key fobs esp. as delivery was in the middle of Chinese New Year.
Very nicely packaged box with the key fobs snugly held in foam. I've included pics of the £11 'carbon look' vs the £29 real deal for comparison.
Note to self: must stop buying accessories for the new car Hand

Obviously you're buying your car for you but I'd think long and hard before not ticking the GTS interior box...it's one of the highlights of the car IMHO. Part of what makes a GTS a GTS and is definitely sort after if you ever want to sell. Cars without stick around and fetch less.

Thanks - yes you're right about that. Porsche are annoyingly clever at marketing, the base ans S 991.2 cars have leather interior as standard, it's over £2k on the GTS, the alcantara with leather is also over £2k then another £2k for the GTS stitching. I must say I'm not very impressed with the alcantara 'shape' on the seat back - prefer it just the centre panel.

Available here http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Pinalloy-Carbon-Fiber-Remote-Smart-Key-Shell-Holder-Cover-Case-For-Porsche-Macan-/291793948673?hash=item43f0465001:g:kTwAAOSwc1FXYoDZ on flea bay:

PS Am I one of the few who ordered a rear window tint alone?. The configurator makes the car look odd but the reality is it's barely noticeable. Wanted to keep the line of sight unhindered.

Finally got round to cleaning the interior of the car (courtesy of boots cotton baby wipes!).
Here are some better shots below.

On a plus side the seats warm up pretty quickly on some of the cold mornings that we've had of late (I didn't order heated seats as I never use them).

Ahh the little things in life...

If only there was a proper aluminium petrol cap cover. I'm getting annoyed at looking at the black plastic when I'm filling up twice a week. Might just have to bite the bullet and donate some more money to the Porsche charity Rolling Eyes
