Hi Folks,
I am ordering a Carrara White Metallic 718 Boxster with two tone black/crayon interior and I am curious to see what looks like outside the configurator.
Does anyone here have this combination of colors? Can you post photos or videos so I can see how it looks like?


Best regards,
Cesar

Painted wheel crests will surely look great on that combo!
Definitely, on the monochromatic 'non-color' combinations -- triple-black and this white-on-chalk -- a touch of bright color really pops. I've got the painted center caps and red calipers on my black Boxster S. After-market ideas to continue the theme pictured. Red seat belts another option.

Unfortunately, reviews of the Momo shifter suggest it does not mate well with the Porsche threaded stick....

Yes, I have selected the color painted wheel crests and red seat belts.
But I still can't imagine if this will be nice outside the porsche configurator.
I can't find on google images or youtube.
It seems that, for the white boxster, everyone chooses or all black interior or black/bordeaux red interior.
I have until tomorrow to decide. After that my setup will be sent to factory.

I like. Apart from the contrasting dashtop/center-console, it is the photographic negative of my triple-black Boxster.

Apparently the dealers believe monochromatic black or white are the classic look as I seem to come across more of these in inventory photos than any other 'color'. Well maybe also the safe look. I like to see some real color too, but as noted just a touch of bright color really pops against the monochromatic look.

btw I had to explain to one SA what I meant by 'monochromatic'....

You are correct Gallatin.
It is Chalk or Crayon (name used in porsche configurator).
But for me it looks like a tone of white.
Did you like this color combination?
I do like the color combination! I agree with @OliverK that the Chalk/Chalk works better than White/Chalk. For me the lighter color seats would drive me crazy trying to keep them clean. My OCD would be in overdrive with those seats.:crying:

Dont combine grayon interior with white outside.
Grayon is darker as white and so your seats will look always like dirty.

Best interior color with white is black. Play with white/black contrasts.
Not combine similar but not identical colors.

If you want the crayon interior choose another exterior color (red or black or one of the blues).

Hi fellows, time is up. So I was 50/50 on the the two choices, but I have been again to the Porsche store to see the options. Black and crayon looks more classy, but the leather was already showing some dirty and wear on a 10.000 miles car. The black/bordeaux red was a brand new car so I couldn't see what a car with this mileage would look like. At the end, I decided to go with the black/red because I am afraid of the stains (I only use jeans) and the possible early wear from the black/crayon leather. So I asked for the full leather black/bordeaux red with the bordeaux red seat belt and sport plus seats. I will keep the black top because I don't like the colored tops. Thank you all for your opinions, it was importante to my decision. Now I have to wait until January when the car will be delivered. :)
