    Re: Boxster Spyder News?

    sfo:

    IMO Spyder is a good bet if you intend to keep it long term .. over the long term, costs will be about the same as hatch back as depreciation will be low or minimal.

    in an age where money is cheap, and interest rates are low, get the car .. it's your passion

    when you are older, there will no longer be any NA Boxsters.

    it's now or never

    +1

    Alex, You're young! You have plenty of time to build your life. Money comes and go. After all, we remember only moments in our lifes, good and bad ones. Buying a brand new Porsche, is unforgettable experience. If this decision will bring you joy without a headeck, even it's hard - do it! 

    Anyway, Spyder is a good choice in your case, price depreciation aspect.

    Just saw this car on a parking lot and all I can say is gorgeous machine !!


    Re: Boxster Spyder News?

    When I was at factory in Zuffenhausen last October I saw Spyders  being delivered (at the factory delivery center) . Production started if I am not wrong in July last year so at this time unless there is little demand (unlikely), there should be few cars out there.


    Re: Boxster Spyder News?

    They are being delivered worldwide :)

    Mine is coming in March and is late because it is PTS Voodoo Blue... I have also requested CXX options from Exclusive department.

    Curious which CXX options you got for your Spyder? I got exterior painted interior trim (not available otherwise for PTS Spyders) along with painted PCM trim.


    Re: Boxster Spyder News?

    You Guys are lucky you got the PTS window not to mention CXX options. I have also a Spyder on order, production in April. Agate Grey / Spyder Classic interior / LWBS. I am really looking forward to it.

    Re: Boxster Spyder News?

    Blueflame: very nice Spyder wink !  I was in doubt between GT Silver and Agate Grey.  I checked again yesterday on PTS but zero chance. Will you have your Spyder delivered at the factory ?

    Yes, I will pick it up at the factory end of April.

    Regarding PTS - strange things happen at Porsche. Last year we had a Exclusive-appointment for a friend to choose a color for his 991 RS. They knew we were coming just for a PTS-Color - 3 people to Stuttgart just for this...AFTER our arrival they told us, that PTS is history, but he could take Black or Miamiblue...Smiley

    But look at the LWB-seat story with the spyder, since last week, they are available again - may be we have luck with PTS in March...Vipergreen is waiting for me...Smiley

    I've been offered a GT silver one today with the Spyder Classic interior - I'll probably take it and become part of the Boxster family Smiley

    Whoa, nice wink

    I'm just surprised about the lack of news from new owners.  I wonder about chopping in the GT3 for one.

    Dave. You have always been an open top kind of guy .... And I feel you miss a bit the mid engine layout. Maybe you should take the plunge ...... Before the GT3.2 comes out.  You would gain ( or at least not loose ) on the GT3 and resale value on the Spyder will stay strong

    Hehe, you might have a point there ;-)

    I just popped into the dealer to ask about Spyders just out of curiosity... No way, he said - all sold out.

    I did have a poke around a 991.2 cabrio though - very nice - I was amazed at the engine sound when he fired it up in the showroom - sounded loud and not turbo like - quite promising.  Booked a test drive for later in the month,,,

         That is great to pick up the Spyder in Zuffenhausen.  My initial PTS was Azzurro California but the color although on the PTS iist  had to go through the feasibility check. I waited for the feedback and lost the PTS window.  

    Viper Green is a fantastic color I wish you all the possible luck with that. I have given up on that.

    Well done Smiley I was let down and missed out on a car. I tried phoning round a number of dealers but it looks like all the cars are sold and no further allocation is heading this way.

    @ Duckie: yes....colours at the Ring! Come to think of it - I now have more displacement in the Spyder than in the GT3 Smiley

    @ beltar: that white / red combo rocks SmileyHad the same in the 981S  (except the red stitching) and loved it. We never had a flashy colour on our P-cars and thought the Spyder would be the right type of car to give it a try Smiley
