What color is my leather?

This is the 2000 S I bought a few months ago. I want to redye the seats but when I check on available Leatherique Porsche leather colors I can't decide which one is right. Here is a picture of the car and the trim tag in the front trunk.

Those are in pretty nice shape. I did the Leatherique in black and was very pleased, good luck!

Sorry to resurrect an old thread, but what colour is this leather, please?

Porsche Boxster 3.2 986 S Convertible Tiptronic S 2dr

I've seen it referred to as terracotta on the web, but that it was only made for 987's. Elsewhere its been suggested this is faded 'boxster' red but it looks too orange for that.

Any ideas?

Here's a link with different Porsche interior colors. The interior color # should be on the frunk sticker to the right of the paint code I think. In the first photo of this thread that would make it E1, but I don't know if that even helps. If you have the original window sticker it would say on that what color it is.

Cinnamon Brown was an option on 986s. On my screen, it looks too evenly faded for Boxster Red, but it could just be lighting & photography shifting the look of the coulour.

I think 78F350 is right, it looks like cinnamon brown to me too. Nice car by the way!

I love my Savanna Beige, but man - that Cinnamon Brown (if it is that) is a color I would love to have!

Evening, all.

I saw it and bought it- the brown/ orange colour matches the existing headlights and side indicators perfectly and it looks very smart.

Up close, a lot of the leather is worn and a bit cracked. Can I improve this myself with a product of some sort?

Thanks
