White out and red in.

Sep 13, 2022,18:44 PM

My daughter and I had a pow wow and decided that a car as special as the speedster needs a little more pop in color. So when my dealership called me to ask if I was possibly interested in the red. I quickly asked my daughter if she might be interested in a little change of color. Well here it is. The speedster is a forever car for me I just changed the color. Also the red just felt a little faster๐Ÿ˜‰  Hope you guys like it.

Wow. You might win me over to the world of cars eventually haha

Red is a good colour for the Speedster - phenomenal car, congrats!

That is a classic indeed!

Guards red, just a phenomenal color.

I loved the carrera white, it looked clean, But the red is like driving around a model.

Whoa! Guards Red. A Classic!

A Speedster is good in any color! I'd probably want one in some slightly fun color. Something light colored and fun. Maybe have to do Paint To Sample. GT Silver isn't bad neither, a bit conservative, but not bad.

If I had a build slot and it lined up to a PTS offering. I would have gone either Oak green metallic or Brewster green.

But I'm not complaining. I love the guards red. Hopped in, and ripped about 80 miles of road when I left the dealership.

Sounds enjoyable!

Red for sure!

All the VIP are trading them in it seems, hopefully not to cover margin ๐Ÿคฃ Looks spot on Jorge. Enjoy ๐Ÿ‘

I don't think so Kevin, if you do a national search there are only like 10 or so available in the nation out of 1948 examples.

I think these will eventually be gobbled up and it will then follow the trajectory of the 911 R, 997 4.0 RS, CGT and 918 with time. This will unequivocally be the last NA speedster they offer with emissions tightening. If you think they are pricey now wai... 

These 100% will remain highly valued

 By: TeutonicCarFan : September 13th, 2022-19:11
I don't anticipate a significant decrease and will hold like all limited and gt3 variants. It's just interesting that 2 came in within a month or so. Was joking that the VIPs (those who had 918 factory order) both sold to cover equities. I hope!

Can't wait for that VIP program to end in 2025.

 By: jp884 : September 13th, 2022-20:40
Then maybe more of us mere mortals might have a shot at the limited editions at list. Although the current environment has everything asking over list including base Carrera's.

Because all good things must end. Just because you bought a 918 shouldn't give you unlimited pick of every LE until the end of time.

It allows the ability to reset everything and allow new collectors a crack at getting some special cars.

Wow, I gotta give Porsche credit for doing that.

 By: ArmisE : September 13th, 2022-20:56
I would just think itโ€™s risk to have VIPs of my brand be miffed at me. But it sounds like these were special case VIPs based on the 918โ€ฆwhich eventually started to annoy other true VIPs, if Iโ€™m not mistaken. Again, credit to Porsche.

I believe it was from lack of sales of 918

 By: TeutonicCarFan : September 13th, 2022-21:21
At the time they weren't all sold and as incentive were given first right off refusal of any limited porsche for 10 years.

I think Porsche knows that their established collectors will not leave them and it allows new collectors to come into the fold when the VIP program ends.

 By: jp884 : September 13th, 2022-21:27
I respect that from them, although I wish they would crack down on dealerships charging ADM. Hell, have it be a random drawing for qualified buyers for the special cars. I'm all for that, at least everyone get's a shot. I placed an order for a 992.2 TTS a... 

VERY cool!!

Thank you.

Wowowow... What a beast!!!

 By: amanico : September 13th, 2022-20:32

Absolutely gorgeous ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿฝ

 By: ArmisE : September 13th, 2022-20:47
So you simply swapped the white one for this red, or was there an added premium?

Great choice! It looks better in Red IMHO. So cool

Thanks buddy my family agrees as well:)

 By: jp884 : September 13th, 2022-21:53
A good buddy car collector friend of mine asked me what my wife thought? He said please tell me she hates it, because if she does then you bought well. I told him my wife always hates every car I buy so I'm always buying well

And watch ๐Ÿ˜ญ

I think it is wife DNA ๐Ÿ˜

My wife rolls her eyes so much that I'm shocked she doesn't have strabismus:)

 By: jp884 : September 13th, 2022-22:42
But fortunately for me it's isolated to cars, she can care less about the watches.

Admittedly, I would have kep the white one, but I'm boring like that x)).... I also love that it has black wheels, others would not go as well with the red.... Cheers, Filip

To be honest I had a hard time making the decision.

 By: jp884 : September 13th, 2022-23:45
I actually really loved the Carrera white metallic. However, this one had deviated stitching in red, fire extinguisher in red, seatbelts in red so the added little touches pushed me over.


 By: InHavenPro : September 13th, 2022-23:58
On a car like that, the details can truly make a tangible difference!

Thank you sir!
