Have you noticed how much car interior customization has in common with the world of smartphone cases? No wonder many companies do both! Acid green accents combined with black leather and a few carbon fiber accents make the German SUV look like the back of an iPhone 7 gorilla case.

From the look of things, this is the current Cayenne S with a twin-turbo V6 engine and that new steering wheel design inspired by the 918 hypercar. It's a €85,000 SUV, at least. But the custom interior certainly adds to its value.

Carlex's inspiration could have come from many places, like the color theme of the Porsche S-E Hybrid series, or the Nike LeBron sneakers. Either way, the Cayenne looks like the inside of a sports bag.

Between the touchy feely Alcantara leather and the bright green accents, the Cayenne is psychedelic in the extreme. But then this is an expensive Porsche SUV, so having people on drugs in the back seats might be a daily occurrence, or at least that's how we imagine things.

As we've come to expect from them, Carlex Design has covered not just the seats of the car, but also the headliner, the doors, and the dash. That bright green color has been applied everywhere, including the surrounds of the speaker grilles, the spokes of the wheel, air vents and gear shifter. Between those and the neon seatbelts, you're probably looking at a complete deconstruction, followed by painting of all the trim and the upholstery work.

Speaking of which, we have to mention that the perforated leather on the seats is stitched together with the same bright yellowish green. They didn't miss any of the smaller details. Getting things details like the bezel of the Chrono watch or the back of the speedometer painted much have been a pain in the quad exhaust. But it all pays out in the end.
