X73 suspension vs. the GT4 suspension (which is firmer and partially the same as the GT3 991 suspension).

I have driven both, and from a driving standpoint, I agree. The Spyder is slightly more desirable than the GT4! The misses and I both prefer buckets though, not everyone does. She likes the styling of the GT4, as she finds the lines of the Spyder to still be a bit too "feminine" for her taste.

I feel the chassis and suspension calibration is spot on with the spyder. I did not care for the gt4 on street.
Really drive one i think it will surprise you.
Lets just say if this one sells i have no desire for a newer or different car and if it doesn’t sell I’m ok with that. Just trying to simplify a bit.

I agree! My wife wanted a GT4, otherwise I would have bought tq.3z's spyder. I haven't seen many 981 Spyders listed since then! Great seller; I think he sold the car for $89k, but ended up hooking me up with his Plenum and GT3 TB for a great price.

For a road car, this may be the most involving and emotional car in Porsche's lineup. I don't know why it isn't more popular. A loaded 981 Boxster GTS sold for not much less than this on BAT last week! Seriously, who wouldn't take a 981 Spyder over a BGTS?

somethings are not based on spec and cannot be explained
I HATE convertibles but I take Spyder over GT4 or any cayman. and I was a cayman diehard with 5 cayman S/GT3 and club sport
now if you want to seriously track it, sure GT4 better.
if you do 15 days or less on track, Spyder is the car you want.

Sheesh, I have almost 3x the miles on my 981 Spyder and would not sell mine for anywhere near this price. What a deal.

yeah, so much car for the money! I have never understood why demand is not greater; a Spyder is a lifetime keeper. It will never fail to be a thrilling driver.

Got a few lowish ball offers but think Iíve priced it fair. It is or is close to lowest priced one out there.
Any loower i just keep it. Itís waeming up and summer coming soon.
Will maybe swap in the 964 mooty so you can remind yourself why you need one of those too.

My lowball offer still stands..... I was just buying it to trade in on my 3RS to save sales tax though. That's why I lowballed. It was what the dealer would pay for it. Your price is very fair for a third party sale. GLWS.

WELL, yours was "lowish" :-)
I got a few that I'd call offensive.

Now that's an interesting strategy. And yeah, several dealer offers ~ what you offered, CPO has no value to a dealer though, but it does for private party. If you do that math, my ask is near dealer buy price plus CPO.
