Ha Ha, Good idea and that's what I've been doing. A Spyder in your hands is better then dreaming about one on a forum. I'm hedging too because I'm afraid it's going to be a turbo. Better to just wait and be surprised.

On another forum there is info from a reputable source that the upcoming 911 Speedster will be called the "GT Speedster" and will be based on the GT3 with a 4.0L motor.

Is this perhaps an indication that the GT Department is moving away from its historical hard-tops-only product line and, if true, wouldn't this make the possibility of a GT Spyder that much more real?

VW needs cash time to slap GT on all models.

Ha! Could be, Mav!

If the Speedster and Spyder do end up becoming GT products, it would certainly represent a significant model expansion for that Department, but maybe adding two more GT cars wouldn't pose any significant challenges for AP and crew

yup but we all know they would not be obtainiable, and crazy ADMís. Hate to say getting sick of the Porsche elitist dealer game, and I told One dealer you sale cars a bad economy itís over. Guys are paying 200k for GT3ís insane. I paid 151k for my last one at MSRP, and would not pay over as much as I love the car itís not 200k. Crazy times man.

Lots of F-you $$$ fueling the frenzy. Not sure where it's all coming from, but sure wish someone would send a little my way!

Speedster = unobtainium
Spyder = ?? although I'm guessing the MSRP of a nicely equipped Spyder is going to blow some minds before ADMs are even factored in.

Crazy times, indeed. Starting to wonder if the 981 Spyder may have been the end of the "affordable," limited-production/special Porsche models.

Yup on the Spyder, and what I see Porsche has gone crazy and pushed GT3 close to 200k and some over with ADMís youíre seeing a different buyer that has 3 to 4 sports cars, and the Porsche is just another car in the stall. Now Porsche has benefited from the success, and added new clients to the list but at the risk of pisisng off the long time enthusiast. I had my GT3 for two years and sold st MSRP, and my RS over one year sold above ...........itís been free driving, but I will part way with the Spyder I like it that much. Stock market has fueled a lot of the cash man .........2016 and 2017 returns were above 20%, and lots of dividends have been dished out. 😎

Yeah. It's all stock market. Another bubble for sure. Just bought a house - seller had 4 offers in one weekend. And we sold our current house in a matter of a couple hours. Enjoy it while it lasts.....

I'd estimate that most Porsche owners have at least $1M, most much more, invested in the stock market.. The S&P has risen over 25% is the last 15 months. So simple math has the low end Porsche investor making $250K in that time frame, many much more. So that makes that 981 Spyder easily affordable, even it stickers for well over $100K. Porsche understands this and wants some of that money.

I asked my dealer contact this morning if there is strong interest in the 718 Spyder. Here is our conversation:

Him: it seems to be under the radar.
Me: wow, I would have thought the opposite given the fact that the 981 Spyder has gotten such rave reviews.
Him: people are confused because it doesn’t say GT in front of it.

Only a couple I have known, most I know, are regular guys who would rather have an old Porsche than a new Camry and they work on their own cars.

When you consider that 70+% of all Porsches ever made still run, statistically, I would say BS.

Tough to say. Only data point we have is on buyers who purchase from dealers... which would probably put $1mm on the low end. I don't think we have demographic data on the second hand market.

Ha! Don't I wish. Guess that makes me the 1% in Porsche terms.
