I always wished the red leather interior on the 987 Spyder was like the Flamenco Red of years past, where it really popped as this red does in the pictures

Fantastic pictures Joel. I just noticed your roll hoops are painted silver too, it looks fantastic with the red leather.

It really POPs doesn't it? I'll be adding more alcantara accents this year. Love that combination. The 981 Spyder Classic interior really nailed it IMO.

Tx Afshin. Yes - hoops and side mirror triangles are painted.

It was so funny that night. Weather clear for the photo shoot and I stopped on the way home for some food and bamm it started to rain. I can hardly wait for better weather up here. We socked in with very little Spyder time.

There's a cinematic quality to these shots giving off a Miami Vice-ish sort of vibe. Very cool, Joel!

Is that the stock steering wheel? I know you were flirting with making a change.

Ryskt, Zeus, Awesome photos! Thanks for sharing! It will have to tide me over until the snow melts. Keep em coming, there is a lot more winter ahead in the midwest.

Well... the truth be know is that we do in fact need to run with a front plate. Some of us think like a 16 year old and just don't put it on.

No - it's not stock - the previous owner replaced the original red one with this alcantera. But what is next up is a 981 Spyder wheel in the 997.2.
