    "Even the side air intakes behind the doors are a perfect example of performance oriented design: side air blades embossed with the ‘GT4’ logo help to boost ram pressure. The results are improved air induction and more efficient cooling of the engine."

    What ever, I think, it is a nice to have on a Cayman for high speed driving or DE Smiley

    @ beltar

    Great pics - Thanks Smiley

    Regarding the "Spyder" Script on the doors - are they from Porsche Exclusive or custom made??

    Ferdie:

    Hey buddy,

    truly awesome car. As I know your Misses and you, the options and colors have been carefully chosen. Must be the nicest Spyder I have seen so far, and the PTS makes it absolutely unique. How was the factory pickup?

     

    Hi Ferdie, long time no see....Thanks for the compliments on my Blue Babe Smiley

    Factory pick up was exciting as usually - quite some changes/improvements compared to what I saw ten years ago.

    Though the pick-up instructors seem to be a bit challenged with the latest niche products. "That's the switch for turning on the rear window heating" Yes, sure ! Errrrm, Sir - that's a plastic window in the Spyder "No, we don't do plastic windows at Porsche" :-) Another visitor asked the tour guide: what's that for a nice blue Porsche at the pick-up parking lot (obviously the visitor meant my car - only blue Porsche parked there...) "That's a Speedster" Smiley

    Congratulations PJ and Beltar!!! Stunning, stunning cars!

    @blueflame: I took only radio and bluetooth for phone. No need for Nav on my side. kiss

    Thanks Mike - looking forward to your comparo of the Spyder with its impressive stablemates at your home 

    As we had the weight discussion: if my COC papers don't lie my car is bearing a weight penalty of a bit less than 40 kg compared to the naked (other than classic interieur leather package) PCCB equipped Sportauto car for the cast iron brake and the luxury goodies (Aircon, PCM, Bose, Rearview camera, light package...). With a 90% filled tank my car should weight just a bit under 1,370 kg. Not too bad for a rather full spec cab, if you ask me Smiley

    Ferrari would market the car claiming a dry weight of below 1.300 kg.....Smiley

     

    BTW - RT is the nicest  way to kill time on my flight today - typing / texting at 1000 km/h isn't dangerous at all :-)

    Re: Boxster Spyder News?

    @ blueflame,

    the doorscripts are custommade. My wife didn't like the porsche striping 😭,too much in the face , she said. I find the white colour better when there is a bit of contrast with the black logo on the sides... So we got this compromice.

    Congratulations Crayphile! Very beautiful and classic color combination .

    Looking forward to your driving impressions

    Limited impressions as yet  - lots of traffic and wet! What a pleasure to be changing gears manually again ( and good practice for when the Singer arrives). The sound is just fantastic even with the sports exhaust off. Its clearly a tightened chassis, very fast responsive steering, clearly "tall" gearing was evident even with the limited drive today. No chance to see really how fast it feels but the car definitely wants to go and be unleashed.The seats are very comfortable. I did not spec this car but overall its a great classic combo homage to the old Spyders. No parking camera so I will need to be careful as real visibility is inevitably not great - another throwback to the pre- dual clutch / flappy paddle days which seem so long ago now. The roof is a big improvement on the prior model but will still take some practice to get slick at it I think.

    Do you perhaps have more shots of the dashboard area and door cards? Curious how the aluminium trim looks in more detail.

    PJ and Beltar-You can both now be Spyder idols! Fantastic cars! Many, many congratulations!

     In the Spyder Classic interior the painted trim is in GT Silver regardless of the body color. On my Spyder which will be in Agate Grey with Spyder Classic interior I could not change the trim from GT Silver to Agate Grey , or Aluminum or Carbon for that matter. The only possibility was to have it done by Exclusive (CX options).

         Thank you CrayphileSmiley   My one goes in production at the end of April so still few months to go.


    Re: Boxster Spyder News?

    @crayphile: thanks mate! wow it looks even better in detail!

    @m4ever: I didn't know that. Appreciate the info :)


    Re: Boxster Spyder News?

    I really regret not getting one whilst it was possible. Good move Mike! Best car of the whole range today for me.

    Re: Boxster Spyder News?

    Anyone know if the gearbox/linkage in the Spyder is the same as in the GT4? The 'box in the GT4 seemed to me to be waaay better than the standard models.
