Marble grey:



Marble leather will come with either a blue or black dash and carpets, depending on exterior colour and owner preference.

Rubicon grey (not a great picture). It's like classic but with more purple. A very rare shade and usually found in cars painted Viola metallic (v few in this colour)

Cashmere beige. Again, either blue or black dash/carpets, depending on exterior colour and buyer choice.

Glad to be of help Very Happy I'm not sure if that chestnut pic actually is right - might be flamenco red.

Asim - good work on supplying the pics. Are there any colours that would-be 993 buyers should avoid only for re-sale purposes?

I do like that beige leather with the dark blue carpeting - very luxurious. On the 996's the closest to beige was Savannah which most 996 would-be buyers appear to avoid.

This is a very subjective thing Maxie, some will love some of the rarer shades, while others will run a mile!

To generalise, the market seems to favour the same old conservative colours, meaning black and grey, which the majority of cars tend to have anyway. There's a few cashmere cars out there, but it seems to divide opinion. The reds, green and blue even more so.

On the right car, even the most wacky interior colour can look good IMHO.

My personal favourite is silver with Boxster red Cool

I have the marble colour leather. Almost white in colour. All my seats have been Connolised (professionally cleaned and treated) and look superb against the blue carpet and dash. The two colours compliment each other giving a very clean, fresh and luxurious look. The car is Zenith blue and the exterior and interior colours really work well together.

As for the green interior.......words fail me!

Dan - Are you sure your seats havent been retrimmed not just treated? The stitching looked perfect and the surface was very matt just like new leather. Very jealous.

My favourite I think has to be Classic Grey. I have Marble and I do like it but with Midnight Blue contrast the jury is out, personally I'd like it all one colour with the ubiquitous black insets.

Looking at the pic of Rubicon grey, it looks very similar to mine but I thought it was called Province or is that a different colour ?
