hmmm - that front end doesn't match up to the much bulkier rear end... looks out of proportion now in the new pics, and looks like two different cars stuck together.
If they have that rear.. which they will.... I'm on Team 'front is going to change'.

Why would they be running this front end if it wasn't going to be used in actual production cars! The front of the 981 Spyder is far more in keeping with cars looks than this effort imo and separated it from the other 981 versions offered at the time so if the 718 was to keep that classic GT front end why isn't it testing in that format currently

maybe because it's 18 months away and they are just paying with engines and deciding what BHP to give them.

I still don't see one till March 2019.

Thank you.

+ anyway don't you think that current sports design front end is a bit weedy for the big aero rear end?

they need to do a job on this new one as atm it looks too normal,

the 981 is aggressive and the 987.2 sexy, this one still looks like a stock 718.....
I owned two 987.2 Spyders and have been making enquiries about a 981 this week. For me the 718 has the best rear of the lot, looks mean AF in Black.

Anyone seen the silver car just come up at Paragon. Very very cheap for the spec!

Given their reputation for high pricing its very unlike them. Sucker for me at what I thought was cheap at £78.9k

I had a look over it this past Sunday - was presented superbly (as you would expect from Paragon). Photos do not do the colour justice , nor the car, come to that. Jamie said it was one owner.

If I was in the market it would be a contender, for sure.

Oh, whilst I was there a lucky young fella was collecting the Agate Grey Boxster GTS.

fitting an engine that is eager to rev and better gearing would be a good starting point.
