By 2001, Porsche removed most of the neat, light color choices and replaced them with a bunch of "off-blacks." Other than red, yellow, green, and zenith blue, there isn't much to pick from (at least...

I think could be a good deal if the car is in great condition. You'd be surprised the differences in condition which don't relate to mileage. Pay particular attention to the top fabric & window.

Wow, striking how little they have changed. I guess forcing your way into a cockpit for interior pictures was out of the question! :)

You couldn't pay me to run 19" wheels. You'll have have what, an inch of rubber between you and New York's finest [potholes].

If you like the style, at least stay with 18"

It was photoshoped, and it was gorgeous. However, I heard a strong rumor that the coupe wouldn't resemble it. Instead, it would have a flat glass in the rear with flying buttresses.

Well, it is quite simply the best convertible Porsche has ever made, bar none. It was designed from the ground-up as a roadster, with the ideal balanced mid-engine design.
