Reminds me of something Michael Jackson would have worn back in the '80's.

just a bit over the top for me. Maybe with an all black steering wheel it would be toned down enough.

It's a bit much, but at least it's a 930 which is over the top anyway.

Switch out the steering wheel with a black 930S wheel and you will be set.

Actually looks a lot like the Gembella Cayenne interiors I have been seeing in the Eurp porsche mags. I like it.

The general rule is; if you think it might be overdone, it is.

Putting on a black wheel would be easy and go a long way to dialing it down.

Tacky. Looks like it should have fuzzy dice hanging from the mirror and a plastic Jesus on the dash.

Kinda reminds me of the interior of mine... one of the POs went nuts with the red and black theme. All that red is coming out. I'm going for black/grey.

Yeah, it's loud in color but doesnt that fit perfectly with it's pedigree? I think it looks very nice - It remind me of the old Weisach 911 Model with it's funky color scheen on the interiors.

Isn't "Unique" what Porsche is about after all?

I would keep it as is.

my 2cents.

What most people so far agreed on - the wheel would have to go and perhaps a few other details. Over all contrast between the red and black a bit to hefty.

Still, damn what a car !!

Exterior - beautiful

Interior - Each to their own.

I could live with it, but might change out some of the red to black...

Exterior is gorgeous. Interior is a bit over the top for my taste. Reminded me of a Japanese "tuner" car.

I'd get rid of all that red crap. Even the calipers.

Overdone. But it does look like a quality job. I like the red piping on the seats...even the belts red. But everything else should be black. The CF stuff doesn't look bad...but would be better against black. Shift knob is sweet...'cept for the red boot. Ditto the parking brake. I think the only other thing I'd "allow" red would be the door pulls on RS door panels. (..although I'm not sure RS door panels would match this interior very well..)

Just my $.03...
