Help identify interior & body color

Im debating if I should sell my 993 C2 S and enter the 930 arena instead - just sold a 911 -78 and already miss the feel - but love widebodies and more punch

My friend in LA bought this -79 last year and will sell it to me

Havent exactly decided on the trip 70s color yet -but was wondering if this could be a so called sonder wunsch special program car

thanx

Well the exterior is nice, but that interior...whoooo that hurts the eyes.
Can you say...leather dye...I think you can.

WOW!

The interior looks like somewhere the Easter Bunny would hang out.

The car is gorgeous, but that interior might be a difficult sale down the road... I would imagine that had to be a special wishes option...

I like oddball / unique stuff and this interior is pushing the outerlimits but if the price was right I could love it!
Do you have a pic of the dash? Chrome wheels gotta go

I like it. One of my favorite things about these cars are the odd color combos you come across but my interior is polarizing too.

I also like odd color combos - loved my moccabrown/cashmere SC - but I have to say that I agree that the interior is too much mushroom trip for my taste.......

My favorite 930 color is white - and would like a black leather int. with houndstooth inserts to go with the that

Now the body color is original on this 30 year old gem - and it even has the turbo stripe on it so it would be bad to repaint it just for my personal preference I guess. The whole car has been gone through but it is a bit stiff pricewise......

cowtown10 - the wheels are actually polished (even on the inside) but I would prefer black inserts

Requested dash pic

I must have gone back to look at it a half a dozen time last night...I like it.
However, 35K seems like a premium especially if it needs a bunch of work. Guess that all said and done you'll be into it for around or over 40K.

The sunlight makes the polish shine like chrome but I agree black inserts like voitureltd is money!!

I have a BLK/BLK 930 and when the interior needs refreshing I am definitely putting in a houndstooth insert in the seats...love that look

oops my bad - the only thing it needs is the turbo and eventually nice mods from original stuff like exhaust +++
Everything is in perfect working order and what I meant to say is that the engine has just been gone through with new clutch/AC and so on Still there are similar deals out there and one of them could already be original white hehe
My friend is a very honest guy so I always know what I get through him which is important especially with a 930

Now voitureltd previous car looks brand new in that pic!!!

Cowtown10 - there was a pair 930 seats with houndstooth on ebay right before x-mas but with vinyl on the sides instead of leather - good price - but they gave me the idea

I don't think this is a sonder wunsch special program car just becuase of the color... It appears to be a stock color. I believe it's Minerva blue.

I'm unsure what the interior color is but it was ordered at the dealer as I've seen it in at least 2 other cars... and personally don't like it!

I would agree with an earlier comment that 35K seems like a premium for this car considering the work it will need, to include a complete interior upgrade or swap/color change!

When I say that interior color, I was confused.

It looks just like a '67 - '68 Camaro color!

onboost.........Minerva blue it is. As the photo of mine shows it had a black full leather interior. I think I may have kept it if it had been a Saddle leather, however with Minerva/black it was still a difficult decision to let it go.

onboost -I have to say I tend to agree on asking price and for future interior "upgrade...." and probably an urgent demand for more power hehe

But it needs to be a 78/79 model for tax purposes

In the long run, I think the unusual stuff is worth the most. Don't get rid of the old stuff.

That doesn't look like Minerva blue to me...this is Minerva blue:



Paint code: 304-9-3

The car in this thread looks to be a lighter shade...but it could be the photos

e-speedster I'll buy all the blue interior bits if you buy the car and decide to change colors.

Black interiors are always available and reasonable, it may be an even trade in the end.


Nice looking car BTW.
