Really excited to get back into a 987 Spyder.

This will be my 3rd.

First Spyder was a 2011 Arctic Silver, STD black interior with LWB & PDK. This was my first Porsche. Plan was to have an afterwork/weekend car to enjoy and the PDK would allow my wife to enjoy it. Turned out my wife may have driven the car once or twice in 3yrs. I traded the Spyder for a 991.1 GT3 which then got me hooked also on the GT cars lol. Wanting a fun manual car I purchased my 2nd Spyder a perfect example as intended and representing the ethos and true concept a white on STD black, LWB, 6spd, short shifter, PSE with radio and A/C delete. Loved this car but could not do without the A/C in South Florida. Car was sold to a true enthusiest and 987 Spyder superfan which I was happy about. Having owned a few prior he now has my former car and another 987 Spyder. One for each residence with the A/C delete car to be driven in the North.
Congrats and welcome back into the fold, you definitely picked up a great example and color combo. Your progression does make sense, it seems everyone has a specific list of must have options for their ideal version of the Spyder, much of it dependent on usage and climate.

Enjoy in good health and definitely post up more pics!

Thanks for sharing and congratulations!! This would be my first Porsche. My dad had an old Austin Healy 100-4 back in the day and he passed several years ago. That’s sort of what kicked off this journey. After looking at a few Healy’s I decided I wanted something a little more modern but I wanted to keep that true sports car feeling. After about 1,999 searches on cars dot com, and filtering out the $100k plus cars, I keep coming back to the Spyder. What’s really ironic about this is back in 2010 (?) I had a car and driver magazine subscription and I remember this car being the center fold in one of the issues and that image is permanently cemented in my mind and is connected directly to the smile reflex.
