    Damn angel

    If any proof was ever needed that even a special 911 is 'just' a 911, this photo makes it very clear which ones are the proper big boys. wink

    Re: 991 Speedster

    Yeah and he just need a 959 and a GT1 to complete the Porsche collection :)

    At the end of the day, these 4 halo cars will be judged by how they impacted Porsche.

    GT1 will be ranked first, it's the rarest, and it brings back trophies for Porsche. 

    Next comes the 959, First of the Porsche hyper cars to show case future tech. It's also very rare AND brought back trophies for Porsche, so some would argue it should be ranked 1st. 

    3rd place automatically goes to the 918 by default as the GT1 and 959 is fighting for first place. 918 was the tour de force for Porsche, they poured everything they know and they didn't know into the car. Except the engine, all the tech are still living throughout the product range from Porsche. 

    Last place among the Porsche halo car is rightfully the CGT. Nothing on it contribute to anything Porsche did after. Some might argue about the engine, yeah it's a nice engine, a V10, that's ABOUT IT!. For christ sake it didn't even have it's own steering wheel! The 918 at least gave us the next generation of Porsche steering wheel. It was a dead end project to salvage money from 2 failed racing programs, not 1, but TWO! People are only blindly drawn to it with the V10 and manual. 

    Numbers backed me up, CGT is the most common of the 4 hypercars. 

    Anyways, with those 4 out of the way, now one can see why a 911 variant isn't that high up the ladder. At the end of the day, it's just another 911.

    Porsche GT1, one can certainly dream...smiley

    I drove the 959 many years ago, not a fan.  From the same era, I prefer the F40.

    I love Singer and their attention to details.  But I'm not a fan of their business model and their delivery fulfillment.  They have courted me over the years and a few of my friends have gotten Singers (eventually, after 1-2 years of delay on top of the original 24 months expected time).  

    Everytime I speak to them, the phrase "rob Peter to pay Paul" always pop into my head. Smiley

    Christian, I thought you're done with Porsche smiley


    Re: 991 Speedster

    Who said I'm done with Porsche? Smiley I'm not done with them at all but as I can afford only one "expensive" weekend toy and Porsche didn't put that rumored 960 on the market, I had no choice. Smiley

    As a business car, Porsche also became too expensive. I pay for my GLC63 S half the money (business lease) I would pay for a Cayenne Turbo S and the performance is basically the same.

    I almost got the GT2 RS instead of that 960 but the dealer played a game I didn't like (long story), so I test-drove an Audi R8 V10 and I was infected with the V10 fever. Smiley

    The 911 GT3 Touring is one of my favorite Porsche, I was actually thinking about one (992 GT3 Touring convertible, yes...this is going to be a thing) for my wife but I don't know, maybe she got her midlife crisis, she wants a wing now. Smiley

    Long story short: I still love Posche, I was deeply impressed with the new Taycan Turbo S, I always had a crush for the  GT models (GT3, GT3 RS, GT4, etc.) but I also think that Porsche is too expensive right now and compared to their competition, their lease rates are ridiculously high, so... Smiley

    No clue. Smiley I saw a camouflaged mule by mistake last year and shortly after, it was (unofficially of course) "confirmed". This was before the corona crisis though...so take this with a grain of salt. Lots of things could change, I heard that Porsche wants to get "lean(er)", whatever this means.

    Fully loaded 850i = base C2S, my full option hybrid 745e lease cost would get me a base gas Panamera. Better lease rates + discounts. Don't know why the Porsche lease rates are so high in comparison with the competitors, anyone has a clue? Smiley

    Fully loaded 840d is 10% cheaper than my nearly fully loaded 981S. List price of the 840d is about 20% above the 981S

    Porsche lease prices do not baffle me, they annoy me. Smiley One reason I will probably not have a Porsche in my garage again anytime soon. My wife is a little bit different, she misses her 911, so I guess she will get one, even if the lease rate isn't good enough. Smiley

    Mercedes also sucks, was yesterday at my Mercedes dealership to get the summer wheels installed and my sales guy told me that there are no lease incentives right now, no special offers for interesting (AMG) models. I guess they think nothing has changed, they can continue business as usual. On the other hand, they complain that no new customers are coming and that over 15000(!) of their lease customers in Germany have asked for a temporary payment stop because they cannot afford the leases right now (corona and all).

    I think the car industry will be in for a big surprise this summer and especially next winter.

    Re: 991 Speedster

    I heard that many customers are being offered extensions to their current lease because the dealers don’t Want the cars returning to their lots right now. Cash better than inventory.
