    New Speedster per EVO

    It was known to be in the works.  Here it is.  It's interesting and I like the blue color, but the price is really absurd.  Something for the well to do collectors, that is to say, not someone like myself!Smiley

    There is no try. Just do.


    Re: New Speedster per EVO

     I would feel very ripped off if i were a Sports Classic customer, as all these limited addition models and the GTS can't help but damage the long term collectors value of the Sports Classic.

     


    Re: New Speedster per EVO

    For let's say the same price of a 997 Carrera S Cabriolet, maybe even 10000 EUR more, the Speedster could have been a very interesting product.

    Personally, I wouldn't buy it because I don't like the Speedster back too much, it looks a little bit like a hunchback but I'm also no friend of the Boxster Spyder, so maybe I'm a little bit biased.

    The Carrera GTS, presented to the public last week, is an absolutely great offer but the Speedster for over 200000 EUR ? I can't help it but the word crazy comes into my mind.

    Re: New Speedster per EVO

    hmmm - odd looking car, not as elegant as I had expected...  Its just a GTS with a very expensive rear tonneau-hardtop-double-bubble-humps thing.

    I wonder what they have done with all the space under the humps where the rear seats used to be?


    Re: New Speedster per EVO

    dont like it and dont like the price.

    actually all the limited editions and the special editions from Porsche utilize roughly the same parts: some extra colored interior parts, Powerkit, fuchs wheels, gt3 front splitter, some other gt3 parts (the back i think)...

    991 must really be round the corner now.

    that said i do find the GTS a fine package!

    The Sport Classic has many other styling details that you can't find on any other model, like the double bubble roof, the ducktail and the rear bumper and exhaust pipes. Some of these elements are also on the even more expensive Speedster.

    The GTS is just a widebody RWD Carrera S with lots of free extras which you could also specify on a C2S. It's a great value Porsche but not a collector's limited edition.

    Re: New Speedster per EVO

     I actually like the color, I miss Porsche solid blue colors.


    Re: New Speedster per EVO

    Not for me..

    I'll stick with the GTS thank you very much..

     Looks like a smurf with ankylosing spondylitis... I dould see this as a "body kit" from a wannaby tunner company that wants to call some attention but not from the "factory" itself

    Re: New Speedster per EVO

    Can someone tell me why GTS and Boxster Spyder are tremendous offers, yet the SportClassic and Speedster feature outrageous price tags? It was a clever move from Porsche to announce the SportClassic first, they wouldn´t sell that batch of cars so easily now...


    Re: New Speedster per EVO

    Not liking it at all....It looks better with the lid on (see last pic)....Anyway.....Next!

    Completely agree .....

     


    Re: New Speedster per EVO

    The GTS is really a very good value and a very attractive swan song for the 997 Carrera models. The Sport Classic and the Speedster are both efforts of the Exclusive department.  Perhaps too much Exclusive, as with too much foie gras, can leave one too full for comfort?

    Re: New Speedster per EVO

     An unattractive blue car with deformed buttocks which costs 20% more than a TurboS. Try getting a decent price for it in three years time... 


    Re: New Speedster per EVO

    looks like a late model countach with all the crap pasted on, and just like lambo of today, a new model every week,

    Exactly my thoughts.

     I think they hired the Gemballa designer for this one...


    Re: New Speedster per EVO

    Wow...They must have a lot of 997.2 parts left in the bin.. The GTS makes sense but the speedster in IMO is absurd..There are enough 997.2 cabs in dealer's inventory in the US so I am not sure who would buy speedster, other then collectors. I could add a power kit and Sport Classic aero kit to C2S Cab for a lot less money.
