Default Speedster is Launched!

Can’t find a configurator for it but it has now officially been launched.


Please post a link to the first live configurator.

Car launches used to be fun, now it's like being given more work to do to try to get an allocation. I just can't get excited about any of them anymore...

Yep. My guy in Champion who I've been dealing with for 10 years told me $200k over
Time to work with other dealerships in the future...

At least in terms of looks, I think the boxster spyder is better and only 1/3rd the cost too.

As much as I do like the Speedster design; the Boxster Spyder is certainly a better looking car- at least the last iteration. Will be interesting to see the new one

Brings back memories of my first 914 with board racks in the 70s. Me and a buddy even took that car on a surfing trip to Mexico. Not sure that would be a good idea in this one.

You are not crazy. Although I don't find it ugly, I don't find it attractive.

That rear 3/4 view makes the *** look so big and cumbersome. The whole car looks too big

That is possibly the worst angle and they use it for the splash photo? SMH
