Funny, was going to say same about tail lights, which I agree, are about the only exterior cosmetic change on the 991.2 that I prefer over the .1.

Long story short in response to the OP, this is...

If PDK, I think I prefer the .1.... Heresy, Iím sure some will say. Perhaps not as much torque, yes. But.....

The .1 engine sounds better to me. Higher pitched scream, less tenor drone.

Iíd rather have my PTS GT3 Touring and a 981 Spyder than a new Speedster. Two great cars for less than the price of one.

So I have a 981 Spyder and a GT3 Touring. Itís fair to say the new Speedster is what you get if you combined the 2 into 1 car. And the price is about equal to the sum total of price of my 2 cars, as...

Speaking of 991.1 v 991.2 GT3, the 991.1 GT3 is a real bargain right now.
