Yeah, I'm not convinced by it. It'll be interesting to see in person when it's clean and in a more vibrant colour, but I'm finding it hard to embrace the core concept.

True 911 hardcore fans and purists don't like the Speedster. Investors like the Speedster.

I don't think 911 Speedsters have ever really worked from a visual point of view. Pre-996 they could just about get away with it without the rear deck looking awkwardly long, but since then they've just been too big of a car for it to work.

As i'm sure i've said before, the Speedster variant seems pointless now they have the Boxster.

the Speedster variant seems pointless

Maybe pointless strategically, but not financially... it's a parts bin special, so no mega engineering costs... if they make 1,000 units at £200k/unit, that's another £200 million in revenue to help cover the fixed costs... and a Boxter Spyder won't be on the shopping list of people who have the clout to get a Speedster.

Not really surprised by how many serial GT buyers want one of these... the overs will be hilarious.

Not pointless if there are people willing to pay for it.

A person buying this wouldn't even look at a boxster, different animal for different $.

Looks better then i thought it would 👍

They've made more of an effort with the design integration of the rear seat-delete tonneau then on previous Speedsters where it just looked like a cheap fiberglass afterthought.

This... actually looks alright to be fair.

Not exactly the sort of car I'd dump cash on, but I can see the appeal. If you take away the little trinkets like the bullet-shaped wing mirrors, bonnet mounted fuel filler cap, and the engraved glass anniversary plaque between the speed humps, there isn't really that much difference between the production model and the concept.

Except perhaps the profile of the engine cover and the rear wing, but that's about it as far as I can tell.
