    Re: 991 Speedster

    Mike, it will al depend on the price of the car. If its little more than the RS I'm OK with that. But if they start charging over $250,000 I have my limits.

    Re: 991 Speedster

    There are some cool details in the concept but lets see how many make it to the final car.

    Mostly it’s what you see is what you get. 

    I don’t regret turning it down.

    If I buy a Speedster it will be a 89 or 94

    Or better yet, a 356

    +1, think it's beautiful, but don't see the point in these hypothetical exercises- at least in front of customers

    Nick, are you saying the pictures of the concept model will be the final production car? Also, when do they plan to start building and delivering the car?Smiley

    It is mostly correct except for the mirrors. Nothing else needed to be changed

    Too bad I love the mirrors. Do you know the price?

    I figured that would be the case but there also is the issue of value. If they overprice the car they send the wrong message.Smiley

    Re: 991 Speedster

    What change of message? All their Cayenne, Panamera, special editions and higher specs cars are overpriced already. It would not change anything to their message.

    The only cars prices correctly are the GTx cars (but that is changing) and the Macan in higher specs. Resale value of GTx cars has been artificially manipulated by Porche but that seems to be coming to an end too. Porsche is smart, why let the speculators, connected people and dealers make all the money? Same thing is happening in the live concert world. People are finally getting smart after decades.

    Here is a 1955 Speedster. It stole the show at our 70th Porsche birthday drive around today. I don't know why these pictures are sideways and can't straighten them out. I also included a picture while we were driving out from the Del Coronado where over 70 Porsche's were parked. We then participated in a 2 hour drive through San Diego, La Jolla and Rancho Santa1528581660832IMG_0880.JPG Fe.IMG_0873.JPGIMG_0872.JPG

    That’s not a Speedster.  That one is a 550 A Spyder and an update to James Dean’s fateful Little Bastard.

    Hi Whoopsy, what did the earlier concept have which you VIPreviewed that changed in the unveiled concept?  1527611592420image.gif

    Is there anything that Porsche could change on the Speedster to make you decide to take yours? Smiley

    Is it that there is another 70th anniversary limited edition model that you expect to prefer?  image.gif

    I gather that you plan to order the GT2 RS Club Sport track racer!  1527608803154image.gif

    Thanks for your feedback, sir! Smiley

    Based on the info available now I more and more understand you decision...


    Re: 991 Speedster

    The rear treatment with the two layers and the central section makes it look less bulbous than previous Speedsters. I like it, but not the two-tone paint scheme and not those mirrors.

    I hope they make this leather color available on other models. Closer to the older Natural Brown. Not a fan of the current natural brown, which looks more like chocolate.

    Re: 991 Speedster

    991 Speedster Concept looks good, but I liked it much more on the spyshots, with standard wheels and in black smiley


    --


    Re: 991 Speedster

    my hunch is this roof will be fully automatic in production form.

    manual only

    hopefully they will produce the leather colour as seen - I think it looks good.

    curious about the price.....

     


    Re: 991 Speedster

    I think the roof will be partially automatic like in the previous Speedster or 981 Boxster Spyder.

    Pretty sure the interior is going to be what will be available to choose from. The concept car is the finished car IMO, minus the side mirrors, hood pins and possibly the hood filler cap.


    Re: 991 Speedster

    if the roof is back...absolute non sense angry worst will be automatic one mail

    that is like a 100kg added for free and no valid reason enlightened

    keet the damn thing hardcore PLEASE smiley

    Re: 991 Speedster

    I find the speedster very curious

    previous editions (except the original) in my eye have looked awkward and the market at the time of sale didn't go that mad for them

     this edition feels to me to be very desirable because to me the styling flows better and secondly, the gt3 engine, manual, then of course its limited.

    I get the fact Im not perhaps the typical customer - or perhaps I am  - who knows?

    I do however think it needs a roof to sell otherwise will almost never be driven - even in the hottest countries where roof down isn't always an option.....

    my ramblings


    Re: 991 Speedster

    The Speedster needs a top. Without it, the car could only be used close to home plus a resident weather man. I for one wouldn’t want a car without a top regardless of the heritage crap.

    Agreed. But a manually operated top is sufficient. Smiley

    You are assuming that the car will actually  be driven. I fear most will not SmileySmiley.

    most people would call me mad but if I were lucky enough to get one, I would drive it everyday
