Wishful browsing / Keeping abreast of market prices ... came across this gen2 4s.

Super low miles & Manual... and I actually like the cream bodywork ... but wow that interior !! (No PSE either).

Strong money , but less than the white one at Hexagon

Brave person who specced that!

I like burgundy interiors but that 'menstrual red' is way OTT for me.

Such low miles... probably too embarrassed to take it out. Grin

I would try and get that car for less and then get that interior recovered. Still not a fan of that exterior though, looks like a 1980's filling cabinet

I reckon that was specced out here in Dubai. When I was looking for the 911, a fair few came with the whale red insides, and almost 9/10 M3s came with the full red boudoir interior. I steered clear. wack

Red leather interior - Nope.

Wow that is very red.

The fact that everything is red is a bit much for me.

If it had a black dash and carpets that would tone it down a bit.

In the end it is personal choice.

I have seen a few silver with red interiors that look stunning.

Would certainly wake your you up in the morning!

In RHD....? Besides...no fire extinguisher, so highly unlikely to be a UAE car.

All being said, I like it. Red with Cream white exterior; I'm sure it looks better in the flesh than pictures suggest.

I dont see it as an issue and would just spend a few quid adding some black accents to the interior to break it up . black wheel ,centre console and a few bits on the door panels. black mats and maybe a black dash top and you would be surprised how that would look .I dont dislike the cream paint got quite a retro look about it.

2005 Porsche 997 Carrera 4S

PostPosted: Sun Apr 16, 2017 9:19 pm    Post subject: Reply with quote

When I was looking for a car last year I had my eye on a white Gen 2 turbo with red interior. I talked myself into liking it eventually .... mainly because it was the only white car in my price range .... when my 4S sold I rang the dealer only to be told they had just taken a deposit on the car. Wasn`t meant to be what
It cost me another 5k to get the car I now have, same year, same miles but with 2 years Porsche warranty, body colour sports seats and black leather.

Happy ? ......... Oh yes Very Happy

If it had colour coded sports seats and centre tunnel and black carpets I reckon it would look awesome!

I was just kidding. Funnily enough I don't have a fire extinguisher in my Dubai car, even though the GTI came with one.

I do like a red interior, but imo it is a bit too much with the cream... If it was a Cocoa interior with cream exterior that would be very nice!.

My Cayman was a Silver/Cocoa combo and it definitely made the car feel special. As long as 'you' like it who cares.. Smile

I've had a cream 911 stunning and commented on wherever it went. Also a silver 993 with a boxster red interior. Not everyone likes black! And contrary to popular belief they ain't generally cheaper. Pictures never do red interiors justice. Shame not specced with black dash mind that's truly nice.

There was another last year same colours/spec but higher miles was up low 40's iirc.
