Joel I still have an old copy of it somewhere, Iíll have to go through my files and I can send it over.

Another cool but often overlooked fact about the Spyder, itís one of the few Boxsters that was actually built in Stuttgart. I was just looking through all my old purchasing documentation and also found the shipping weight for my car, it was 2811 Lbs which is actually lower than I expected. That means Iím actually under 2800 Lbs with the lightweight battery and lighter tires!

I'd love a copy of that spreadsheet too please! I'm on my third 987 Spyder, one of, if not the best road driving car ever!

Added a Boxster Spyder to my collection. Can't wait for some nice weather to drive it.

Does anyone know if the much rarer 2012 models trade for any premium over the 2011’s?

They donít. MY is irrelevant on this particular car when talking value. Any knowledgeable buyer in the market for this car likely could care less if itís an Ď11 or Ď12. Thus, two Spyders similarly equipped in similar condition with comparable mileage separated only by year will bring the same money. But that doesnít necessarily stop some Ď12 sellers from touting in their ads how few cars were made in that MY! This ďso few madeĒ claim might serve to impress a neophyte who doesnít know the production history of the car as described in this thread or that the cars for those two MYs are identical, but it wonít sway an otherwise knowledgeable 987 Spyder buyer. For me personally, I get turned off by a Ď12 seller trumpeting low production numbers because I see it, rightly or wrongly, as potentially misleading to the unwary. A Ď12 is no different or no better than an Ď11 and to imply in an ad that a Ď12 is extra special or commands a premium because fewer were made that year is hogwash, if not somewhat deceptive. Some might say, well, you canít fault a seller for trying! and others might say, hey, a buyer who doesnít do his homework gets what he/she deserves, but I say the car is great enough to stand on its own without an owner trying to exploit phantom selling points.

Any chance someone has a copy of the spreadsheet? I'd love to see if my car is there!

Ditto. Would love to see the VIN breakdown now that many years have passed. I've seen at least one VIN that doesn't jive with the 2011/12 split outlined on the early pages of this thread.
