    bluelines:

    Let me add a few sarcasm smileys to my above post so that it's true meaning is understood 

    Not necessary bluelines - at least as far as I am concerned Smiley.....

    We are 110% satisfied with our Boxster GTS, it is leagues better than any other Porsche we've owned, even the 997/2 Carrera S that preceded it. I get a thrill every time I drive it, perfect!!!!! Smiley 

    Not so with our Volvo; two major faults in a month and this week towed away by a recovery truck after I was advised not to drive it with an airbag fault warning....Smiley

    Well, talking about Rennteam bundle of joy, I have to confess I really miss nberry good old times posts when he was a proud and happy Ferrari owner bashing on Porsche products. His posts were so entertaining and the bashing was hilarious Smiley Smiley Smiley , I agreed with him so many times. It´s sad he came to this side of the fence, now we no longer have those great threads from him.

    Re: Brandnew Boxster Spyder (981) available...

    They are both correct in their own way though, I know this is a Porsche centric board but sometimes the Porsche fanboy denials are a bit too much... Porsche is great but they have slipped in being the benchmark (except 918, limited and not for sale anymore) or in being a value sport car brand. Their cool image has seriously been hurt although their sales are still good worldwide. What saves their image today is... their best in class SUV and crossover for car enthousiasts.

    I bash all brands equally. I don't discriminate.

    I drive a R8 now...so not exactly the typical fanboy anymore but the new GT3 is an excellent product and the Boxster Spyder is an interesting offer for the money the dealer was asking. Was. 😉

    Would you really put 116K Euro towards the Boxster? It's not like 116K Euro only buys you cars up to 116K Euro.

    To me, if you have 116K Euro to spend on buying a car, then you have 116K Euro to spend on a owning a more expensive car as well. As such, I just don't see the appeal in such an expensive Boxster. For that money, you could literally drive your R8 for probably 8 years.


    Re: Brandnew Boxster Spyder (981) available...

    No, I would never put 116k in the Boxster Spyder as a weekend toy but maybe as an investment. Maybe, not sure if the Boxster Spyder is special enough for that.

    Re: Brandnew Boxster Spyder (981) available...

    So, my opinion: the boxster spyder is special!!!

    is it worth 116k? Maybe not. Buying new was cheaper. So until today it's a good investment

    after having had 965, 993 targa, 996 cab, 997S cab, GT3 996, and audi R8 (V8) i now have the spyder for one year and a 993 cab i thinck to have enough porsche-experience to make my point:

    Driving the spyder after 5 years R8 was comming home. Already after 100km i knew i made the right choice  

    this spyder is one hell of a car . very quick, agile, better sounding than the best Burmeister.

    to say it's perfect, no rather not . Therefore it's too noisy driving it on the motorway . But since 991GTS was too expensive the spyder offers tons of fun for the money. We went to Italy and  orse last summer and i've never had so many thumbs up in the last years. 

    I find the spyder more exclusive and as good drivers car than GT4. (Drove one for 2 days) the GT4 is defenitely the better trackcar. Spyder is a lot more fun as roadcar.

    One day a 991 GTS cab could be the car to have for me though. More isolated, comfy roof, and same engine.

    maybe RC can change cars .... :-)

    Re: Brandnew Boxster Spyder (981) available...

    Just saw that there are at least 2 new (max 100 km) GT4's for sale here in Dubai, if anyone should be interested. Prices are around EUR 100.000.

    None in WHITE though wink

    Not really worth it...considering transport, TÜV certification (if possible), import tax and VAT... Smiley

    You can get them cheaper in Europe.
