Ooh. Now that is super helpful, thank you!
I'd think 1978-1980 had the same official specs.

It also points to the black pinstripe with the black leatherette.

As for our local Porsche club, I...

Seat upholstery type and colour issues

Hi.

I would like to return my car to original specification. The only actual thing that needs to be done is the interior, as the PO did a reupholstery job in faux leather.

Thanks JR.
That's exactly what I am looking for.
It looks like it may be best to wait a year or two as I will likely save up more than I need, even taking into account increased costs. I also...

Thanks!

Luckily they focused on what it does rather than how it looks. 8)
