If my experience with the 981 Spyder is any indicator, warranty should be the least of your considerations. The 981 is Lexus level reliable.

Based on my experience with 3 years and 20k miles on my 981 Spyder, there are no issues. One warranty visit due to a leaking window seal.

I was able to buy a spare 3.2 for my 986 S track car. It only cost me $3k. Perhaps you can find a spare 2.5 for your car? It certainly appears to be a nice car and worth the expense of keeping it...

One vote for the 981 Spyder. And I’ve owned a bunch of P-cars over the past 30 years. This one for me sits at the pinnacle in terms of driver’s car rankings. Miata would rank pretty high also...

With all due respect to the 911, one of which I own and love, the 981 Spyder is the greatest sports car ever made. The manual top is a small price to pay for the greatest sports car ever. :-)
