Porsche made a very honest, very balanced car, unlike anything the supercar world offers today. It has a wooded know on top of a manual gear stick, a simple interior with no navigation screen and a round steering wheel totally devoid of any electronic trickery.

This car is production model 1035 of the 1270 that have been made. That doesn't sound like a very special number, but it's the only one that's been customized by interior specialists Carlex Design, long-time favorites of ours.

They chose to cover the interior in yellow thread to contrast with the black leather and carbon fiber for a sporty overall look. The tone is borrowed from the color of the brake calipers and hints at the Carrera GT's sporty nature.

Carlex also added lots of luxury extras and add-ons like the Alcantara floor mats in rhomb stitching, rear view mirror in Alcantara, Trunk (boot) lining decorated with yellow stitching. Our favorite petal is the yellow and black carbon fiber on the door cards.
