    Re: 991 Speedster

    If it makes you feel better Moser I've bought at least 21 Porsches over the past 13 years and been responsible for family members buying another 4 cars from my dealer and I will likely have zero chance of getting one either.


    Re: 991 Speedster

    it makes me feel a lot worse actually....hence my idea for transparency in the way car manufacturers allocate certain vehicles...  ok, maybe not all of them go to the lottery....but at least 5-10 cars....it would be a wonderful event...where people who have bought so many cars from Porsche feel they at least have a chance....


    Re: 991 Speedster

    The centrepiece of the limited special edition

    The concept cars’ body is based on the 911 Carrera 4 Cabriolet. The fenders, as well as the front and rear bonnet are made from lightweight carbon fibre composite while the chassis was taken from the 911 GT3. Furthermore, the GT development department provided the exhaust system with its titanium tailpipes and the drivetrain including the manually operated six-speed gearbox. The same goes for the centrepiece of the limited special edition: The Speedster Concept is powered by a naturally-aspirated flat-six engine developing more than 500 hp and capable of engine speeds up to 9,000 rpm.

    Moser:

    its very sad that someone how has purchased 8 over the last 12 years can't even get a whiff of getting on a list to buy this car..... 

    Why don't the car companies make these limited special edition and then have a lottery for the customers and make the process fully transparent.  To qualify for the lottery you have show proof of funds to be able to purchase the vehicle, and put at least 50% deposit.  From there on you get a lottery ticket for the car... it could be a marketing masterpiece in my honest opinion, where actual Porsche fans and lovers are given a fair chance to get the car of their dreams....Of course there would be conditions attached to the sale such as not being able to resell the vehicle for at least two years or something along those lines...

     

    I've asked me dealer in Lebanon for an allocation, but he said we would be lucky if Lebanon got even 1.  He took my name down, but I know there are many people above who have purchased 918 spyders and other ltd edtion models...

     

    Moser

    Just not many years ago they had problems to sell all the 918s...how quick things change...


    Re: 991 Speedster

    The car is absolutely fantastic except for the rear hump. it is horrible. Maybe it will look better in real life. The sad part is that this just shows you how super cool a convertible GT3 with no wing and rear seats could be...


    Re: 991 Speedster

    yes it's crazy....


    Re: 991 Speedster

    First, all the BS it takes to get allocation leaves sufficiently bad taste to dissuade interest. Second, PDK a better choice than MT for this car in my opinion. Third, styling and details a little overworked.

    Re: 991 Speedster

    Wonder how much this will cost? Not that I would be in line for one anyway. 


    Re: 991 Speedster

    We don’t yet know

    cost

    Re: 991 Speedster

    There'll be no problem whatsoever with availability - you just have to buy a 0km one from a car website of your choice for double the price!

    Re: 991 Speedster

    I do like the new speedster, but I do not like this "limited model each quarter"-thing of Porsche - it somehow depreciates the "value" of the ordinary range of models...oh, and wait, I have only 23 different models to choose from, usually, ...


    Re: 991 Speedster

    1948 units is a lot of cars.  I think a lot of people who wants one can get one?!

    I'm in for one.  Don't think I will have any trouble as Whoopsy (#1 VVVIP at my dealer) is not getting one.indecision

    Re: 991 Speedster

    I don’t believe the Speedster has a retractable top. It has a removable top. Need to check the weather each time you drive it. 

    Btw, I’m guessing the price will be around $200,000.

    You’re safe then. 😂

    1948 is not many cars! This is worldwide.

    Nick - you live in San Diego.  No need to check the weather (72F and Sunny) Smiley  Most suitable large city on Earth for a Speedster.

    I bet the price is way over $200k if you choose any of the Heritage options...

    Btw, the rear plate says it is still a concept, I thought it was the final look

    Re: 991 Speedster

    I’m pretty sure it’s the final product. Not sure what else would change? They’ve already confirmed the wing mirrors and central fuel cap will be optional as part of their heritage package

    Re: 991 Speedster

    The silver Speedster concept looked great in person at Rennsport Reunion.

    Wolfgang Porsche stopped by the PCA tent for a brief speech, along with Detlev Von Platen.  DvP mentioned their goal was to sell one less Porsche than the market would take, without mentioning models.  They didn't take questions, so nobody asked what about the impossible (for the normal guy) to get GT allocations?

    I did ask a PCNA guy about it, he had no explanation.

    Grant, the price probably closer to $225,000. I would agree with options closer to $250,000. Received a call from my SA today and he indicated that the dealership probably will have a ADM on the Speedster. A deal breaker for me.

    Yeah, unless they are going to start giving you over msrp for your trade-in's, I'd tell them to stick their ADM where the sun doesn't shine Smiley
