Default Speedster: Heritage or Normal?

With the release of the Speedster and the option of the heritage package only in 1 colour, I would like to ask a couple questions to those more knowledgable than me:

1) Based on previous Porsche’s what tends to be the uptake on packages like Heritage? For example, I believe there was a styling package for the Spyder/GT4.

2) What has been the uptake on WP for 3RS, 2RS, 918, etc

3) Which do you think looks better? Heritage or Normal?

I personally love the interior of the Heritage, but with only 1 exterior colour option and I assume the majority of cars configured with it, it might make sense to go a different direction.

Wait, the heritage package only comes in that one color combo?
So if one wants it they're paying extra and there's going to be like hundreds of identical cars out there?

If you are going to actually drive it. I would not roll around with meatballs in a heritage package.

That is my understanding.

If that's correct then wow!

Are the white bits painted or a luxurious sticker package, or a bit of both?

Not 100% sure, but I assume sticker as that would be a very costly paint job. Someone will hopefully confirm shortly.

Without the mirrors and center gas cap, it's just a tacky paint scheme. If it wasn't Porsche telling you it was a "heritage" package, you'd like at this as badly as flames on a pony car. Get a beautiful color for a beautiful car, that stuff is ugly P-koolaid nonsense.

What I want is linked to my questions above.

For example, if 90% of cars have heritage I will likely go a different direction as I prefer something different. If 10% are likely to have heritage I would probably go for it as it is still rare and different.

I would have already gone PTS and CXX if that was viable.

I guess the colour options for non heritage will also help in the decision process. I am hoping for Agate or Meteor as a standard colour.

I have been trying over the last couple of years to break my obsession with black cars and the car being “more unique” is part of my internal justification.

I would go normal version and spend the 25k on options like cxx stitching, carbon, and pepita bucket inserts. Customize it to me, probably would take the stickers off.. lol

I think the Heritage is ugly.

Really looks great in red and everyone must own a red convertible at one time or another.

Either way, I look forward to discussing which one is rarer in the endless pissing contest of who has the rarest car on RL.

My vote would be normal, red just makes sense.

No Heritage. I’d prefer a non-metallic Blue or Green.
