    Congrats Mike! Nice to see you got yourself a real man's car.smiley


    Re: Boxster Spyder News?

    Congrats Mike! Very cool color combination. Looks way better than the 718.


    Re: Boxster Spyder News?

    Very nice. Black or Jet Black metallic (difficult to distinguish on the pictures)?

    Thanks for the kind words guys. I'm going to pick up her hopefully tomorrow or the day after. Will post some more pics as soon as I have some indecision

    @Futch: You have to appreciate the irony when the Boxster is now considered as manly smiley

    @DuckieRS: It's Jet Black. The car literally just got off the transporter. Still very dirty and dusty from it's 4 weeks in transit from Germany devil


    Re: Boxster Spyder News?

    Very nice car Mike kiss You'll enjoy it I'm sure. I picked one up on Saturday and love it.

    Re: Boxster Spyder News?

    I LOOOOOOVE those seats! Cool kiss


    Re: Boxster Spyder News?

    Just sitting in the car will be fun !!! No need to drive it indecision  Great interior, it fits this car so well . And those buckets are so comfortable . I drove the other day 550 km non stop and had no issue at all . No back pain, nothing . In the sports seats in my Carrera, after about three hours of driving I start to have pain on the low part of my back .

    Re: Boxster Spyder News?

    Wonderful Mike, congrats!
    BTW, are those silver seatbelts? They really stand out, seems like an odd choice, not too sure about that.

    Re: Boxster Spyder News?

    Very nice interior spec, it will contrast with a somewhat dull exterior.


    Re: Boxster Spyder News?

    Thank you guys! Highly appreciated indecision

    @Joost: I took a gamble on the seatbelts, thought it would tie in nicely with the silver trim of the classic interior. I don't think they look bad though frown

    @gnil: I agree, those seats are beyond comfortable! Plus they look amazing. Two birds with one stone

    I think they just catch the light in that particular shot in a way they would not in normal conditions, making them look shiny.

    Re: Boxster Spyder News?

    Ah that makes sense! The pics don't really show the seatbelts together with any of the other silver details, so that doesn't help.
    Did you already take delivery of the car? Looking forward to hearing your impressions (that, and of course seeing some stunning pictures of the Spyder in the wonderful SA landscape Smiley)

    Re: Boxster Spyder News?

    We are thinking of selling the beauty...SmileySmiley Mss doesn't like it at all... She misses the comfort of an electrical roof and the car is far too noisy on long runs on the motorway.... When driving open, it's too windy in the cabin...

    I can't say she has no point.

    But to me , It's by far the most thrilling porsche i had. From a driver's point of view, i find it just stupifying, bloody gorgeous... I like it utmost... but my other half ...

    So when you know interested people, give a buzz.  It's not really decided yet, but i presume we will sell it in the end... and i will be wheaping... that's 100% sure SmileySmileySmileySmiley

    Oh, that sucks man! Hope you'll find a worthy new owner or another solution...

    Re: Boxster Spyder News?

    That sucks surprise

    I guess that's the problem with these raw, focussed cars that we crave - for most people they're just too much. I test drove another sports car earlier today - fantastic, but quiet and refined. The weird clunking, grinding and loudness of the GT3 put a smile on my face on the way home, but I can see how others would hate it.

    Re: Boxster Spyder News?

    That's why Porsche is toning down the regular 911, that's what most people want and that's what sells...


    Re: Boxster Spyder News?

    That sucks Belter! Will you lose much money on it like a normal Porsche or has it held its value like a GT4? None has been sold here by owners so that market has not yet been tested! But GT4 has been commanding a premium. Hope at the very least you don't lose too much money on it and is able to jump into another Porsche.

    I am trying to understand when they specifically started with this "toning down" and I keep iterating down the model numbers 991, 997, 996, 993, ... Smiley

    Beltar, sorry to hear that the Spyder might have to go Smiley

    Sorry to hear that . Can't you keep it for yourself and get something else for the ' family ' ?  The car will not lose much value , so keeping it will not be at a loss ( or much ) . 

    I agree with what other's have been said .  The general buyers don't want noise, shakes, vibrations etc... They want the best but it has to be comfortable Smiley   No wonder car manufacturers don't know where to go to satisfy customers .

    Re: Boxster Spyder News?

    These cars are for the driver only. I sold my GT3 RS when my brains took over my heart in the decision, but I regret it big time. Hope the GT4 will restore that!
