987 INTERIOR in a 986…swap ?


Recommended Posts

Has any body shoehorned a 987 interior into a 986? I want a replace my 99's thrashed interior with a newer, nicer interior and want to explore this option. As I see it the newest interior (04(?)) that would snap right in would have 7yrs of wear, tear and weathering (and it will get a lot more out here in the sunshine state).

Part of my business involves proto typing stuff from scratch so mods to door panels and the like would be pretty easy for me. Below is my guess as to what would easiest (one star) to most difficult (5 stars) to adapt to my car:

Carpet *

Seats * ½

Door panels ***

Center console ****

Dash *****

So I probably wouldn't mess with the center console or dash unless some one told me it was relatively doable or had a DYI. I think I'd stick with the carpet, seats, & door panels

Thoughts, have you done it? am I missing anything?

Regard, PK

P.S My 99 only has 40k, it's fast, and looks great but the interior is trashed (tops seldom up, nite & day, 9 months a year…so cal, what can I sayl).

986 bits mixed with 987 bits in an interior wouldn't quite look right IMO, other than the seats (which bolt right up unless I'm mistaken) - those would probably look good.

I'm sure you can find nice condition interior panels though, my 10 year old interior is still in great shape.

Ya I'm not sure how it might look either. But in principle the only '99 stuff left would be the dash and center console and both of those could be reupholstered in part and gussied up a bit (gear shift knob, gauge rings). Just looking at my options.

Thanks for the reply, PK
