Would be great if the top were electric but certainly not a deal breaker as is.
From a branding of the speedster perspective it won't be automatic, and apparently will wok just like the one on the Spyder. This is a very good thing.

Anyone having second thoughts on the 991.2 Speedster after seeing the 992?

Incomparable models. Also, the Speedster will probably be priced at GT2 RS money.

I would like 2 as well:
One as a piece of art for the living room, and the other to drive EVERYWHERE, topless, with goggles on...

If they start producing these around Geneva show time as people are saying, how long do we have to order and get car? The scheduling is tight because 992 will be coming in then.

It doesn’t really matter. They make different cars on the assembly line utiling JIT manufacturing processes. 991.2 can be made along with 992, 718, etc. same goes in Leipzig, panameras are made along with cayennes and Macans.

I prefer the last and best of a very good generation to the first and worst of a new unproven one. I have an allocation and am very excited about the car. What I may not be excited about is the price. I need it stay in the $200k-$225k to stay married.

congratulations John!! That is amazing. I agree with you on best of the last. If you donĺt already know it can you please do all of RL a favor and call PCNA with your commission number to find out the exact finish production date?

Are you sure you've got an actual allocation and not just a promise that you will get one? No one else has heard anything about allocations yet.

Official dealer allocations have not been issued. I suspect a rough guideline will be the dealer's actual # of GT2 RS allocations received, minus ~20% (estimated 2,400 GT2 RS's vs 1948 Speedsters). I see no reason why the criteria shouldn't be similar (overall sales volume, # of regular 911's sold, etc).
