    It looks like it does not know if it should be modern or retro yes 

    Too many retro elements and just doesn't look right in my opinion. Tech is great (GT3) but the visuals? Not so much.

    Not my thing, sorry.

    They got it all wrong then, manual roof and auto box is what people seem to want...

    You are assuming that the car will actually  be driven. I fear most will not SmileySmiley.

    So true especially if it doesn't have a top. The car essentially will become a museum piece.Smiley

    I love this thread as it really illustrates the breadth of flavours of Porsche to suit everyone.

    its remarkable, so many varieties.

    Re: 991 Speedster

    steelested:

    my hunch is this roof will be fully automatic in production form.

    manual only

    hopefully they will produce the leather colour as seen - I think it looks good.

    curious about the price.....

     

    Price is rumored to be above GT3 RS...

    Indeed Fawlty Towers and Blackadder should be compulsory viewing for all.


    Re: 991 Speedster

    Forgot Fawlty Towers...of course. Watched it a dozen of times, at least. With my wife and even with kids, they loved it.

    Mr. Bean is a favorite too of course, every once in a while we are watching some of his stuff.

    We also loved Benny Hill but not all of his stuff is always enjoyable, sometimes it is a bit too silly.

    Believe it or not, I even watched Dad's Army (hilarious) and Keeping Up Appearances... Smiley

    Latest spy shots showing a virtually undisguised car. The side profile of the roof is very much like the 981 Spyder.

    Not the best design, seems Porsche have lost the plot Smiley


    Re: 991 Speedster

    I think it looks the best and most coherent design iteration of the 911 Speedster. The engineers look to have used the same basic roof system as the 981 Spyder with the buttresses likely being secured in the same manual way to the rear deck lid.

     


    Re: 991 Speedster

    I believe they might show it in finished form at Goodwood next week

    apparently two versions will be available - one being normal other being heritage (gold lettering etc)

    I heard only 20% of the production will be the retro "heritage" version...
