    Re: Boxster Spyder News?

    Beltar congratulations , real beauty. I think Porsche did a great job with designing the details in a purposeful manner on the Spyder.  Looking forward to your driving impressions kiss


    Re: Boxster Spyder News?

    Tim:

    For some reason the car doesn't photograph well, however, in real life it looks magnificent! The car looks so much better than a standard Boxster.

    Congrats!

    Agree. Recently saw one and it looked more like a supercar, than a Boxster variation... Smiley

    @ ISUK: when is your Lichtgrün beauty due ?

    My GT4 was due to complete production last Tuesday and was due to arrive with my dealer early next month. I haven't checked with him to see if it is still on schedule but hopefully it is.

    Great news - maybe I can catch a glimpse when I am in Zuffenhausen next Friday Smiley

    Well, if you understand JV as abbreviation for Joint Venture, JV 911 is actually not that wrong (engine from Carrera S, steering from Turbo...) Smiley

    I just checked with my dealer and the car is now showing completion on 20th which is Wednesday but he says the system suggests it is being built at Osnabrück.


    Re: Boxster Spyder News?

    I think all the Boxsters are build in Osnabrück

    I some some Spyders on the line in Zuffenhausen.  I think all Caymans are built in Osnabruck, but Boxsters built in both locations.

    Re: Boxster Spyder News?

    Yes, close to 160k EUR - ouch. But the price is largeley inflated by Dutch taxes and CO2 "duties". Net price for export into EU countries would be around 97 kEUR and then you have to add local taxes (in Germany 21% VAT but no CO2 taxes, luxury taxes or similar).

    Re: Boxster Spyder News?

    Does anyone now a better winddeflector for boxster/spyder. The small deflector between the rollbars seems inapropriate. Is there an aftermarket solution?

    Here you go:

    http://www.ur-windschott.de/boxter%20low.htm

    I had it fitted in my 981S (see attached pics) mainly due to bad visibility with the OEM mesh deflector. Not sure whether it actually does a better job in terms of wind reduction. Quality and fit is excellent and it also fits the Spyder (did a test myself) Smiley Mind you they offer two versions (standard and high) - I have the standard (lower) version. I guess the higher version also would fit the Spyder though I am not sure whether it suits from a design point of view.

    Yes, the Maritim car has a luxury spec (Burmester....) rather than following a puristic approach Smiley

    In Germany, VAT was 19%. Is it 21% now?

    Thx! But actually i'm looking for a solution to cover the holes in the rolloverbars.

    Of course you're right Smiley Sorry for the typo: Germany is 19%, Netherlands is 21%

    @ beltar: o.k. - I understand. I am not aware of a solution for the wholes in the rollbars (981 parts will not fit, as the design of the Spyder rollbars is different from other 981 variants).

    Seriously? Did I miss something lately? Smiley

    97k plus 19% VAT would be around 115k EUR. Acceptable but still a lot more than MSRP.

    Beautiful car though... Smiley Perfect combo for a Spyder.
