interieur change from black to red

I own a `87 black 930 with full leather black interieur which is in nice condition.

For any reason I would like to have a black 930 with red leather.

I think about to install a lipstick red interieur which I can buy for a reasonable price.
I don`t want to change the dashboard, this can stay black.

Here is a picture from the sport seats, was the black edge original from Porsche
in 87-89?


1: would you consider to change the interieur from black to red?
2: if available, I like to see some pictures from this color combo.

thanks
Falk

I think a red interior on a black car would look spectacular! I believe the contrasting piping was a factory option.

i love the red interior idea, however i really dont like contrasting piping on the seats...

for some reason, every time i see contrasting piping it reminds me of "cheap" seat covers...

but red interior on a black car is my personal favorite,...even better is red interior on a dark grey car...

have you thought about just recovering your original stuff

Thank you for sharing the picture!
Thats what I need to find the decicion...

jim:
-I agree, the black piping is not my favourite,
but the market is very small.
-recovering my black leather parts would be a shame,
they are very nice+ it would cost lots of money:
sport seats-rear seats-door panels-rear side panels-
sunvisors (if i change them)-door pockets-full carpet

only the center console is not includet in the kit,
anyone have a lipstick red one for sale?

You can repaint the black piping, if you don't like it. It's not hard to do. The factory piping is essentially painted plastic in that era.

As for the center console, find one in another color, strip the dye from it and re-spray it. Again, it's easy to do.

I had a dark charcoal with lobster or lipstick color seats and door panels in my limited edition audi 4000cs quattro back in the day. I would love to do that again as it really had a special feel and look to me. since then I've been trying to find a car with that color combo but it's really hard to look for a car as old as ours and get what you want. Almost have to just make it what you want when you find a good car.

I had an 86 cab that was black with the can-can red interior. I loved the color combo.
