So my current spec is senca blue, no black pack, black wheels, yellow calipers and black alcantara/yellow trim interior.
However, I really really like the idea of tan as I have never had a car with a tan interior. I stopped short of speccing the car with tan as the blue with tan isn't something I thought worked and i dont recall ever seeing anyone else do it. I played it safe, albeit secretly wishing i could have tan.

Like a lot of you, I continue to find time to spec ...and change my spec again and again. Looking at the post a short while ago about grey with tan made me even go back and consider that !!! It so easy to just keep chaning minds with this car and the easy to use configurator. I am trying to work out if me thinking tan could well work with blue is just man maths applied to colours and me just convincing myself it would, or if it really could work.

Any thoughts?

My opinion, the blue works nicely with the tan interior. Go for the spec you want; if you make compromises you'll regret it, like I've done in the past. The only issues around resale will relate to cars specced with extreme combos, like McDonald's 'clown combo' (yellow exterior with red interior).

Complimentary hues in colour theory, opposites on the wheel. Why would it not work?

Go for it. My first 911 was Cobalt Blue with a Terracotta interior so kind of similar. I loved it - Really stood out from all the boring sliver / grey / black 911s with black interior.

I've seen a Seneca blue with tan leather. Looked good. Leather on dash and doors had vg stitching. Seat has a contrasting flash in the squab.

Blue with the tan interior works great actually. it is a nice color combo. One thing you may want to consider it how dark (or light) the tan is and will the color of dark jeans transfer onto the seats? It may not...just throwing it out there.

Seems like people always dissing McDonalds (yellow/red) and Superman (Blue/red). I say if you are feeling it, go for it!!

As for the Blue/tan: lotus doesn‘t seem to object:

But personally that’s my spec for the moment (blue/tan). Though green / tan is a possibility as is shadow grey/tan.

Did I mention I like tan leather seats?

I've a metallic blue (San Marino) with Amaro Brown and i think the combo is a winner. Seneca/tan could be great!

Just pointing out that more offbeat combinations reduce the pool of potential buyers, not that red/yellow was wrong per se. As I said, don't compromise (as long as you don't care about resale).
