    New toy

    Picked this up and have been driving it around non stop Smiley Very happy with the way it drives, despite only having 408hp. It still feels and sounds great.


    Re: New toy

    Wow, looks good Mike!

    Cant wait to see the pictures of that blue beast in the stunning southafrican landscape! :-)

    Only 408hp, Mike? smiley

    Congrats, love the look of this thing. Fabulous choice in your climate.


    Re: New toy

    Congratulations, very nice Speedster. Do you know by chance how many were imported in SA?

    Re: New toy

    You just bought that to cover up your dirty floor. Admit it! indecision

    Indeed a great car. Prefer that colour over white as well. How do you feel about the roof mechanism? Heard that they can be a bit troublesome. Considering the time of purchase, did you still order it straight from the factory?


    Re: New toy

    Congrats Mike wink

    You add another rare "toy" to your collection kiss

    You have been very quiet for some time and I was very curious why. Here comes the answer. smiley

    Re: New toy

    Very nice, enjoy it. I saw one at the dealer last year and they look great in the metal.


    Re: New toy

    I think you all have spent too much time around Rossi 

    In all seriousness, thanks for all the kind words. Yes, I don't believe they made too many RHD variants.


    Re: New toy

    Congrats, very tasty - and in my favourite colour!  Smiley

    Speed has never killed anyone, suddenly becoming stationary... That's what gets you.

    Re: New toy

    OK, finally seen it (but on my phone!)

    MIke - are you in SA?  I thought you were somewhere in Singapore..!  JHB or CPT?

    My friend imported two 964 Speedsters into SA earlier this year, kept one and has decided to sell the other one - I saw it at Porsche a couple of weeks ago but not sure if it's sold yet.  I must catch up with him.  Showroom price about R1.5m I think - about $180m...so just for real enthusiasts with deep pockets!

    Re: New toy

    Ill be honest I'm not the biggest fan of this car. But I do appreciate it being a huge collectors item, it's sure to be a very desirable car in the long run. That said I do want to see more pictures of it since real life shots of this car a so scarce. 


    Re: New toy

    Nice Smiley

    Happy Driving

    Re: New toy

    Mike, so glad you bought a Speedster!        We await your impressions of it. Smiley


    Re: New toy

    A keeper ! Any possibility for a porsche collection shoot ? I lost track....wink smiley


    Re: New toy

    @fritz:  I walked into that one right there. Lucky for me, that particular has been sold a week or two ago smiley

    @Budster: Wow, 10% commission - you Capetonians are expensive 

    @Enmanuel: I was not crazy about the car at first, but I was itching for another convertible. It was either the 12C Spider or this. The 458 does nothing for me from a looks points of view. The 12C, although great on paper - lacked flare in person. It will also depreciate like a rock off a cliff. This car too, I'm sure will depreciate, but at least it has some historic value. I figured seeing that the other milestone 997's were in the garage, it seemed logical to make the move on this. Trust me when I say, I was having second thoughts all the time. I'm not a PDK person either, so it had a lot of cons weighing up for it. Now that I have had the pleasure of enjoying it on some beautiful roads, my slight reluctance towards it have totally fallen away. I even love the PDK! The roof mechanism is also a bit of entertainment to take down. Plus I have always said that the next 911 will be Riviera Blue, but I guess this was a nice compromise in colour kiss

    @Ron: Thanks buddy!

    @Jim: Haha, thanks Jim! I'll do so during the course of the week wink

    @Bjoern: Hahaha, I am afraid that will have to be done during the course of early next year. They are all over the place at the moment heart

    Many congrats Mike, very nice car (perhaps a bit slow Smiley) and a perfect addition to your P-collection. Smiley
