I never thought that magnolia leather on a black car would look so good.

They always buy in cars with odd colour combinations in my experience. They mostly end up selling.

Looks pretty dated IMO.

Dependent on the exterior colour IMO it looks good as an interior choice (though it is something that takes some effort to keep clean) but then 10 yrs ago people thought white cars might have looked a cheaper colour....everything possibly is a popular colour even if only very very briefly!

Thanks Tom, no I am not interested in this car or a 996 turbo or a 993 turbo as I had both already a few years ago. I only made this comment because I thought the colour combination looked good. I was considering a 996 GT2 a few months ago (you have one that looks fantastic) but unfortunately do not think that my driving experience would do justice to this car so I am back to square one. A 997 turbo possibly ?

Must admit, Porsche usually get it wrong with the light interiors, especially on the 996. (SAVANAH for example). But this actually looks nice in my eyes, with a blend of black and the light colour. Never seen one like that before!

I think it looks OK. Agreed, complete bstrd to keep looking mint, but lifts an otherwise dull interior.

I like it. 996 brown interiors are not good but surely better than black! The market doesn't agree though. 997 have better browns

Looks lovely, but then I love light coloured interiors. My Jaguars were Champagne & my Boxster is Savannah (with an Estoril blue body!)

Magnolia does nothing for me, its just not a Porsche colour. My mates 550 Maranello looked great when new but it was just so impractical. Its a Ferrari colour.

Linen, marble grey, graphite grey or black for me. I would caution anyone on Cocoa and Savannah, they are very much Marmite colours.
