That Porsche interior is fantastic...Obviously appealed to the same market as the Mercedes of the time which came with some rather lurid Plaid cloth on some models as I recall. I miss the German carmakers doing things like that...
Saw a late Volvo 850 (I think it was anyway, it had been debadged) today which reminded me of one of the favourite options that Volvo offered at the time - which I seem to recall the automotive press absolutely hating. Which was to have the usual wood (or at least wood effect) trim in place, but using a really light coloured wood rather than the usual dark veneers.
I still reckon it looks absolutely fantastic, very much different to the norm, and really brightens up what could have otherwise been a very dull (if exceedingly well executed) interior design.
...Seem to recall that was one of the last cars to feature the two-coloured green and amber Lambda warning light on the dash, which as a youngster I found quite fascinating. Yes, I was a strange kid.
Would still like one of those Volvos if I could find one at the right price that wasn't utterly knackered.
