I'm having a debate with myself about the interior options. Specifically, I'm wondering about getting the Race-Tex interior on my Taycan Turbo. Is there anyone out there who has spent much time with the Race-Tex who has an opinion about it? I actually haven't seen one up close and personal as all of the demo cars I've seen had leather.

I think if I was looking to buy a turbo on the 2nd hand market i would want leather. But I guess there might be people wanting RT. Is leather not expected on a car like this?

I went for the leather free interior and race-tex steering wheel in my Turbo S.

It will spend a bit of time on track potentially so figured why not.

Mine is the dark gray race Tex. I really like it to my surprise. It has more texture abs “depth” that the leather, and it feels nicer. But obviously not as “elegant” if that’s your thing. It looks more like a sport car.

i am not huge on leather to start with. Let me know if you want pictures.

I went with the leather wheel. I would be concerned about longevity of the non-leather options in the heat and hand oils. My two other Porsche cars have leather and so far so good after 4 & 5 years.
