Here's a sad thought.....any known wrecked ones? I bet not all of them are still on the road.

The exterior of these cars is a work of art and the roof is an engineering marvel. This is the only convertible I have ever seen that looks as good with the roof on as off.

I have no plans to sell mine and if I ever do it will probably have 40-50k heart-pounding miles on it and the extra $10k I would get for Sport Buckets would never overcome that driving privilege. So let's stop worrying about what they will be worth and enjoy what we have now! If you are sitting on the fence waiting for the right options, you are missing out on a lot of enjoyment now for a little ROI down the road!!!! Happy New Year!!!
Ditto. It will eventually be a collectible. But, I will always carry the memory of the miles and miles of driving pleasure. And that is priceless. Own the dream or live the dream?

It would be great if one can drive a bare bones spyder (including a/c radio, sport exhaust delete which all add weight) vs one that is fully loaded and see if there is any noticeable difference. I doubt that I can tell the difference. But for me its the thought (of the weight saving and the compromise a driver has to endure for the sake of performance and handling) that went behind Porsches idea for this car that counts. Plus it will not be my daily driver. But looks like I might have to compromise somewhere as I will not get to spec one

No A/C on mine. Weight-adding options (PCM, Audio Plus and I-Pod) more than offset with Lithium battery and PCCBs. Not sure about how much weight is added by the Carrera Red interior (although this is a light leather as I understand) and the PSE.
PCCBs yield the most noticeable positive difference, in many respects: handling, brake feel, power, precision, endurance.

Agree with w00t and craig67. To me Porsche cars are like dogs, you never really get over the loss of one you once treasured. Looking backwards, I should have kept my 944 but I didn't have room or the funds to keep that many vehicles going. I don't want to ever give up my spyder, I hope I have it till I can't drive anymore. Certainly, I remain dedicated to caring for it at my highest capable level but not ever by keeping it in the garage on a sunny day.

As explained by Jabbey (John) in Rennlist:
"First VIN: WP0CB2A86CS745061
My VIN: XXXXXXXXXXX745195 (only 7 built after mine)
Last VIN: WP0CB2A89CS745202

141 MY2012 units to North America

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Mine was a mid-June 2011 production and European order and delivery. Its VIN ends with … CS740122.
It looks like a MY2012.
However, its VIN does not correspond to the numbering series studied in the post above. Is it explained by the difference in numbering between cars for export to North America vs cars in Europe?
Cheers.

In the 458 Spider, the motor is a dual-phase direct-injected F136 FB 90-degree 4.5-liter V8! It has 570 horsepower maxing out at the 9,000-rpm redline and 398 pound-feet of torque peaking at 6,000 rpm. Why do you ask? Are you a Tifosi simply lost in our forum...or just confused on the actual name for this Boxster model?

Bringing back an old thread. Are there any figures on MT 987.2 Spyders in North America. I believe there were 891 for both 2011 and 2012 combined. Curious to see how the 891 breakout between MT and PDK.

TIA

I got curious on Gen-1 Spyder production numbers and found this incredibly interesting thread. Thank you to all of you who posted, especially to Z356 the OP. Incredible.

I'm amazed at how many were produced with the PDK and how few MT's there are.

I'm interested in seeing just how many cars went to Canada. Does anyone know how to differentiate that on the VIN?

Anyways, for the newcomers to the Spyder nation, enjoy!

It is isn't it?

Anyone know the whereabouts of the Excel spreadsheet of VINs?
