    No, just add a "BOXSTER" lettering and voila, you have another member of the Porsche design family...Smiley

    That thing looks like a stretched out Boxster and I don’t mean that in the positive sense Smiley

    With roof and spoiler down it will look good .   Just stick to good weather and city driving and all is for the best indecision

    Re: 991 Speedster

    How much shorter is the roof line? It doesn't look very different than the normal cab in that sense. Sure the back deck is different but the whole point of the speedster is to have the top of your head barely protected from the wind...

    I heard it uses the smaller windscreen from the Boxster.   Not sure how much difference this makes...

    Re: 991 Speedster

    There is too much body work behind the driver. The windshield is not low enough. Proportions all wrong to be honest.

    At least someone agrees with me Smiley Hideous design Smiley


    Re: 991 Speedster

    I agree too. It doesn't look good. I’d rather drive a beautiful old and slow V8 screaming merlot red/sand handbuilt 08 Vantage Roadster smiley


    Re: 991 Speedster

    The car actually looks good to me as a grown-up Boxster...Smiley 


    Re: 991 Speedster

    Just in case hearing Andreas P talk about his latest baby will swing someone to order one.... the Speedster from AP...

    Does this mean that only the Concept version has 911R motor or that the production version will also?

    I believe he was referring to the concept since he said they chose the 911R engine for the car because it was on the shelf, like a one off.

    Agree - and also AP is still going through the motions of "we will talk to the market before deciding etc...", so since he is claiming production decision is not made, he cannot at the same time be talking about what a production version looks like.

    Re: 991 Speedster

    OK, makes sense.  Most rumors indicate GT3 motor with RS power level (still not aware of any difference between GT3 and RS motors, other than airbox and tune).

    Rear clamshell w/ humps looks rather unattractive.

    Re: 991 Speedster

    Like a stretched spyder . Does not look good on these photos . Probably much better with the roof open . Also the speedster always looked strange in proportions .  That s what makes this car special , in good and bad

    Re: 991 Speedster

    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...

    Nice looking car. Is the gas cap in the center  of the hood? Too bad it’s manual.
