2009 Porsche 911 CARRERA 6-SPEED TARTAN INTERIOR

It has Fuchs and tartan, and has me considering doing bad things to my financial state. I didn't know you could order a 911 this way. Dang.

I didn't know they brought tartan back either. That's awesome.

The Fuchs are a pricey option / accessory. They look good with the Carrera stripe in that color. I've never seen the Tartan either, gonna have to ask some questions at work tomarrow. Porsche will 'special wish' damn near anything you want...for a price.

I'd be curious to see it all with a classic white exterior and a little lip spoiler, but I'm not complaining.

Wow. Gorgeous! Love the Fuchs.

Of course, they're still making the same damned car :)

Seriously though, Porsche and Disney are trading being on top of mining their heritage to sell stuff to their customers.

They did that with one of the special editions with the ducktail for like 300K a pop. That has to be aftermarket tartan.

I'd thought the same thing, and it's certainly very possible, but this made me think it was more likely than not factory:

I opened this expecting a tartan wrapped car. I am disappoint.

Ok, now that I'm over that the car is secksy!

Yeah, I'd imagine for the right price, you could have bought a 997 with a tie-died or paisley interior.

It's nice, but it would be better in a bolder color. I think a tartan with a broad red stripe would look amazing in a silver car.

Well shoot. That's pretty convincing.

I may have to fix up a future Porsche similarly.

why would you get tartan and not get it a decent colour? It seems to be an issue with all cars anymore, everything is either Gray or Black inside.. with a few beige interiors thrown in for good measure. What happened to the bold interior colours of yesteryear?

When I do the seats in my 914, I want to go with tartan or houndstooth

There were several tartan color combos back in the day. Some bold and others pretty mild. Still cool though.
