Wait... people are paying $200k over sticker for a 918?? I thought you could just walk into any Porsche dealer and just order one up at list price! Wasn't there speculation that they wouldn't even sell all of them? »
I was this guy, but let me explain myself. I was trying to sell a 2001 Pontiac Sunfire GT with 73k miles on it. So, with just that information, you can deduce that the car is worth approximately nothing, but hey... it's got low mileage. So maybe it's worth a grand or 2.
I wanted at least $5k. It had nothing to do… »
I love that the clock has a big label under it that says "CLOCK" so when it stops working, you'll know what was supposed to be displayed there. :) »
Who's got time for this?? I'm still stuck on the 911 Targa configurator...
Roof goes up. Roof goes down. Roof goes up. Roof goes down.Roof goes up. Roof goes down.Roof goes up. Roof goes down. »
You never finish with the 911 configurator. Hell, once you realize that you can switch to 3D mode and work the roof on the Targa, that's as far as you get.
Roof opens. Roof closes. Roof opens. Roof closes. Ooooooh.... »
Funny. Red seat belts is one of the few options I DIDN'T check off when building my Porsche. Want a stupid one I couldn't let go of? Leather seat backs. I HAD TO HAVE THEM!!! Ugh. :( »
This has been my favourite video on the Internet since it was first posted. Wear headphones or crank the sound up!!
It helps that I've got a Boxster GTS on order. Now, if anyone asks me about the car... I just send them this video. "It's this... but in brighter red... " :D »
I have no idea how close to production these are, but I don't expect to see them before the 2017 model year. You never know though. It could be a big surprise and BLAM!! 2016 is a 4-cyl turbo.
This all makes me even happier that I just put my order in for a 2015. I know that people like me are going to someday… »
Hot damn!! I'm trying to buy a Boxster right now and not having much luck getting a price that makes me happy. NOW I WANT QUAD LED HEADLIGHTS AND A 918 STYLE WHEEL!!!! »
I bet you'd find almost the exact same information on buyers of sports cars or sail boats. A convertible as your primary car isn't terribly practical in most parts of the world. So if you throw out the fact that they're convertibles and consider who can buy very expensive but mostly unnecessary luxury items... … »
I've tried to do some research on this whole situation and I'm still at a total loss when it comes to understanding any of it. »
I don't understand. Does the TRD exhaust only change the sound? He talks about "breathing better". If there's no additional power available, how is it breathing better? Is there more power under the curve without changing the max? »
Thanks man. That post was from last year and I've since seen it in person with the roof in the trunk. Seeing that, I pretty much conceded that the roof would never come off during road trips as you're right... there's pretty much no room left there for anything else. »
