Hello boys and girls

Long time Audi Bmw owner ~ Going to be ordering my first Porsche : )

this is basically what I'm trying to spec





Wanted to reach out and see if theres a list of must haves ~ the option choices are a little overwhelming (esp with the interior)



Any help would be appreciated

No not yet - just Finnish the garage floor
I too spec’d Crayon for my Turbo S. The best colour by far. Has an off white tint in sunlight and a very elegant grey in cloudy or darker weather. For the exterior all plastic parts are being painted high gloss black because the plastic diffusers, air intakes, window sills etc really cheapen the look in my opinion. Brake callipers also painted black. Yellow has no place in my little world and there is no need to scream ceramics for a car like this. I went for weight loss and performance gain versus driving aids, many of which are a) very expensive and b) certainly not required for me (lane assist, parking cam, adaptive cruise) since you are buying a high performance car that has daily drive ability. I guess if you manage 650 bhp, you know how to park a car. :)

I have spec’d carbon roof for weight loss and lower centre of gravity, lightweight glass and added sport exhaust. Also replacing the OEM battery with a Porsche motorsport Lithium battery to shave off an extra 40 lbs. Stayed away from the aero package. Think it looks good in the rear but not in front.

Interior I chose dark grey leather with crayon contrast stitching and crayon belts. I have seen Manufaktur leathers at huge extra cost but cant find a difference with the stock leather. This is unless you want multi-colour leather interiors. Alcantara GT Carbon steering wheel and middle console to match the alcantara ceiling and A frame as well as carbon package interiors. I think having dark grey leather, Matt carbon finishes, grey alcantara and crayon accents makes it look homogeneous, elegant but still sport-driven. Only weight added extra is the front axle lift, given that bumps and my garage entrance gradient are a fact of life where I live. Heated seats based on my climate but no cooling. Either or both work extremely well and fast.

Also went for Burmester audio but understand that the 2nd tier Bose is also good unless, like me you have audiophile OCD. For me it’s either engine noise only or theatre sound if I am on a long cruise. Definitely more nice to have than must have for most though.

As a 930 tribute I spec’d the new straight 5 Spoke wheels (not the original looking ones) that make a subtle reference to the original and are not a payable option. Also adding the sharkskin sticker under the air intake.

This is my 5th Porsche and with the Turbo S, the area below the air intake, takes a lot of beating given the extended rear arches. For additional protection the whole car has a PPF and ceramic coating (wheels too) and nano coating for all windows. Use the money you save on all needless aides to pay for what I think is a very good investment in protecting your paintwork (also adds a little more shine and contour and makes maintenance/washing a breeze).

Hope this helps and enjoy the very best Porsche yet!
