ORIGINAL: daro911 Great links thanks for those Flat6 Why am I being told there will be no 981 Spyder soon or even if at all! According to the Porsche link the following quote contradicts today's OPC spin The new model becomes the third version in the Boxster range, joining the Boxster and Boxster S, yet at first sight stands out clearly from the other models. This is quite simply because the Spyder has been developed essentially for driving in the open air. Let's hope Porsche will give us another third model to the 981 range real soon
ORIGINAL: rob.kellock For the sake of my battered wallet, let's hope they don't. Give the residuals a chance of fighting back!
ORIGINAL: flat6 I remember when Spyders cost this much at around 1 year old, http://www.pistonheads.com/sales/4154363.htm but this 981 is only a few months old! I don't think the Spyder will be an 'investment' for a while yet, but then, what is? Soley about the enjoyment for now

ORIGINAL: rob.kellock Wow, that 981 has taken a bit of a battering already hasn't it. Mrs K has got so partial to the Spyder's stripes that she's hoping to pick this upgrade to her Fiat 500 up tomorrow!
ORIGINAL: rob.kellock In 911 Sports classic livery too.
ORIGINAL: rob.kellock Watch out at those car shows, as a Spyder owner you get to meet all sorts... :-)
ORIGINAL: rob.kellock Swindon car is hardcore spec!
ORIGINAL: rob.kellock Bargain one has popped up on here though! I like the stereo and aircon on mine, wouldn't want to be without either to be honest. I may do the odd track day but reality dictates I also do the odd traffic jam! Are you able to join in at PCGB day at Oulton Park in November? Highly recommended.
ORIGINAL: rob.kellock I was there but not on track - spent much of the day up at the top of the control tower with my children dodging the rain!
