    Your avatar suggests that we share the same colour taste Smiley Interior will be black leather/Alcantara/Carbon, silver elements (stitches/door pulls/safety belts) and light weight buckets Smiley

    @ all: thanks so much for the positive comments - really appreciated and makes me even more excited about the upcoming pick up Smiley Only problem is, that winter arrived today.....of course there is still hope that it will be better next Friday.

    After almost 8 months waiting car finally arrived this afternoon at the garage...Because the truck broke down on the road to Belgium (clutch....Smiley ) the car didn't arrive wednesday but only today.

    I was told i could pick it up this evening but .... snow and hailstones came in after 6pm and garage called , we'd better wait till tomorrow evening... fingers crossed: snow is forcasted tomorrow evening... so the never ending story of a very difficult birth continues.

    Car has been built 19th of octobre.....

    Re: Boxster Spyder News?

    @ beltar: sorry to hear about the delivery saga but I am sure all this will be forgotten once you turn the ignition key for the first time Smiley Just curious to hear what happened to your car between Ovtober 19th and today - even in most conservative break-in mode it can't take almost three months from Stuttgart to Belgium ? Smiley

           Yes indeed Smiley     Very nice interior configuration , looking forward to the pictures!  Do you know by chance the weight difference between light weight buckets (P11) and the standard bucket seats?  Have not so far found this information. I have too ordered the lightweight bucket seats on my Spyder which will be produced in the second part of April (but no PTS for me sadly).

    Off topic : Here is my 993 4S in Riviera blau.

    Re: Boxster Spyder News?

    @ m4ever: your aircooled beauty looks fantastic ! I also tried to figure out the weight difference between the LWBs and the foldable buckets, but couldn't find any meaningful data.....other than the rather generic Porsche claim that they are extra light. To be honest I picked them for the "cool factor" - maybe even in the literal sense as they cannot be ordered with seat heating....Having said that I am very happy with the foldable buckets in the GT3 - never had better seats in any car and I very much hope that the LWB are the same level from an ergonomic point of view (wifey and me were happy with them during a short test in a GT4 but the car was stationary in a showroom). Yes, unfortunately the time window for ordering PTS was very small (about 6 weeks if I recall correctly). But then I've yet to see a Spyder not looking good - regardless of the colour. May I ask which colour you did pick ? I wish you that time flies by until April :-)

    Re: Boxster Spyder News?

    The P11 lightweight buckets are the 918 spyder style seats which have electric height adjustment.

    P11 option

    P11 Seats.JPG

    The P03 seats are the folding buckets that were offered in the Cayman R, 991 GT3 etc. The height can only be adjusted by a trip to the workshop. They can now be spec'ed with a heated option as well.

          Thank you Porsche-Jeck. I have also chosen the  P11 option because I like the seats and not because of their weight nevertheless  was curious to know the weight difference between the two. My Spyder will be Agate Grey with Spyder Classic interior , P11, platinum grey wheels , extended Alcantara/Leather option. No PCM and manual air con. I kept the standard radio, had a thought to confirm the radio delete, but my wife blocked from doing this .  I am very much looking forward to seeing the pictures of your Spyder.Smiley

    @ ISUK: when is your Lichtgrün beauty due ?

    My GT4 was due to complete production last Tuesday and was due to arrive with my dealer early next month. I haven't checked with him to see if it is still on schedule but hopefully it is.


    Re: Boxster Spyder News?

    My new friend arrived finally after a long long yourney...

    Re: Boxster Spyder News?

    So, my first day with the spyder has come to an end.

    I took a few pictures to give you all an impression of our configuration. Beautiful pics will follow in spring when nature is more green and i can find time to search better locations.

    From that camera perspective I would add that shot to my car picture of the year collection.Smiley

    Re: Boxster Spyder News?

    For some reason the car doesn't photograph well, however, in real life it looks magnificent! The car looks so much better than a standard Boxster.

    Congrats!
