Help with interior color, what color is this....

The seller's ad describes red, but I am thinking it might be natural brown, but still hard to tell with the lighting......

That's "Boxster Red." It's a bit orange-y -- about the color of smoked salmon.

Nice how the carpets were changed to black from the stock red/pink. With Silver, it's very nice color scheme.

+1 for Boxster Red. Nice color. And from what I remember when I was ordering my '99, you could choose contrasting carpet from the factory. Correct me if I'm wrong but I believe that black carpet came from the factory with the Boxster red color.

'99 Boxster - Ocean Blue/Graphite Grey

I did the same with the floor mats in my Savanna beige interior. Helps mute the sea-of-one-color look and ties in with the black interior pieces.
