I must admit, I am torn. 
 
As a 981 Spyder owner I am all in favour of these ridiculously high 'flipped' prices, as it can only serve to strengthen the values of 987 and 981 Spyders
 
But another side of me would like to see such flippers suffering severely burnt fingers. What an odious practice

I'm sure many of us agree with you but Porsche Cars GB do not seem to want to intervene.
I would have thought that it would be very simple to not allow anyone who sold within, say, two years of purchase, to buy another "special" / limited edition vehicle. But these "preferred" customers keep on being allowed to do it.
Does anyone feel strongly enough to initiate a petition against this practice to give to PCGB?

I thought the recall was on GT4's only made in a different factory to Spyders and was due to a faulty assembly tool as opposed to a design fault 
 
Please correct me if I am incorrect as I read it somewhere in the cyber world so could easily be fake facts

We may not like this practice but a petition would fall on deaf ears as Porsche HQ are fully aware of who got the cars and appear to be very relaxed at PC's being willingly involved in flipping the cars for another round of profits perhaps PCGB view it as "cheap market research" on where the price point can go to for the next generation of Spyders / GT4's 
 
I recently asked a question regarding final production numbers for UK Speedsters the reply a week later was nothing short of laughable hence I feel any petition wouldn't be worth the effort taken
 
 
"In response to your enquiry, the 911 Speedster is a limited production run of 1,948 vehicles for the whole world. Regrettably we do not hold exact figures for the UK allocation. 
 
I hope this may help you moving forward and apologies we cannot provide the exact information you require.
 
Kindest regards"
