Cool Slate Grey over Red Custom 991 Turbo Cabriolet by 'PORSCHE EXCUSIVE'

Oh my...

By admission, I'm not the biggest fan of the iconic 911. That is NOT to say I don't appreciate what it is!

But THIS custom car built by their own in-house customization (many don't even know it exists) "Porsche Exclusive" is foking gorgeous!
The contrast is absolutely Marvelous. And how often do you use that word to describe something?





Note the illuminated door kick plates!

P car Exclusive

The full "lipstick" red or is it "porno" red? interior is off the charts

I can. I mean seriously... Who needs or wants a manual in a Grand Touring Supercar??? Porsche obviously realizes there is simply no need. So if it's good enough for them, Lambo, Ferrari etc... It is certainly good enough for me!

GT3, maybe. Most owners (as demonstrated by not offering it) obviously don't want it nor will they see any time on the track. But even if they DO, these Auto-Manuals will make their times that much better.

PDK > Manual

Not a fan of the exterior color (too flat), but the interior is absolutely stunning except for that silly P-R-N-D level in the middle.

The slate grey is very nice but that interior is horrific.

To each their own I guess.

I really like it. But you know what other color would be just as nice if not my first choice? A very deep saddle! Droooooooooooooooooool

I agree with both of you.

I love the grey on red. Unfortunately, that grey has too much purple in it. Might not be such a bad thing if it wasn't against red. I think it would look a lot better with a different grey.

And I love red interior (have one) but I need some contrast. Dash, door cards, carpet, steering wheel, pillars - EVERYTHING is red. Too much for me.

It is slate and not graphite.
Steve McQueen had his in slate. Last I've seen it.

Too "military" for me, but hey.

Nice car, although the all red interior for me is a little much. It'd be nice if the dash and steering wheel were black, along with the upper part of the doors. The manual purists need to give it a rest, PDK is one of the best transmissions ever made. I had ages more fun with that than the stick, technology can be fun people!

Just made my panties wet. I love red interior, on certain colors, and I think it makes very well with slate personally.

Stunning. The color combo is off the charts nice. Porsche does the all red interior so well.

love this, but there needs to be some contrast in the interior. the red is way too much. perhaps something like red seats, but a black dashboard

Perfection. No one does interiors or red interiors better than Porsche. Just an overall stunning combo.
