What color is my interior?

Seriously, I don't know.
Anyone know the name or color code? The reddish-brown parts were swapped in so they won't show on a sticker or by VIN search. I've found some color charts online but still couldn't find a perfect match (probably due to scanned images and monitor variations). I'm buying some cheap sport seats and want to recover them to match the "brown" parts.

It also appears you have the full leather package. Very nice.

There is a tag attached to the underside of the front truck. It looks like the one below. Take a photo of it and we'll decipher it for you.

The pictures don't provide a great representation of the color. I'm thinking cinnamon brown or boxster red.

Thanks for the replies. I just found this chart online. It is the first time I find anything with the top three finalists together (boxster red, terracotta, and cinnamon brown) in the same image, so while the colors might still be off at least they're relative to each other. Cinnamon brown looks a little too brown. Boxster red and terracotta are pretty similar and look close to my interior color. I know that terracotta was available in the 996 or 997 but was it available for 986 Boxsters?

My 986 is Arctic silver with boxster red and in your pictures it appears to be boxster red, especially the drivers side dash picture.

Teracotta was not an option for the 986. So it's either red or brown. You should be able to tell by looking at it.

Too easy... look at the tag! On this one "DE" is the interior color.

Can't! My red/brown interior parts are not original to the car. Hence my confusion.

So there's "Red" and then there's "Boxster Red" which is really brown, correct? If that's the case then I'm betting my interior is Boxster Red since it looks more brown than red, and Terracotta (not available) and Cinammon Brown (too brown) are already out.
