Erm, minimum £13k of free options and some (sort of) unique body styling and "decals".

Hell, Ford and Vauxhall have been doing it (cheaper) for years.

all since VW took control PC

so watch out for the all white Porsche 911 'Match' Special Edition

but in all seriousness, this must be awful for regular model depreciation

Anyone with an X51 has done their conkers (the cooking models registered near GTS launch will fair little better).

In May 2000 Porsche realigned the prices by circa 10% (circa £10k on the top models).

Some customers who bought in the weeks and months before and complained received a bunch of flowers as compensation.

what doesnt make sense, was the Sport Classic was over priced by a mile, so wasnt a factor but this is actually cheaper and almost the same as the SC Dont know Dont know Dont know

did a ducktail and bubble roof really cost that much to develop Dont know Dont know

The price has little to do with "development" costs. Firstly they can photocopy the 2.7 RS DT at 125% and second at least three low-volume US GRP styling houses have clone DTs at approx £2.5-3k.

As for uses of the 997-shell stock-pile, see here (my favourite model is the one with the Mach3/Quattro blade fixed wing):

The SportClassics were all hand tailored with leather covered everything out of the special wish department at Werk 1 though (which is also the case with the newly announced Speedster), whereas the GTS will just roll off the standard production line. The premium is in the labour-intensive construction and the simple fact that Porsche have a subset of devotees sufficiently wealthy that they pretty much don't care what it costs.

If you think about it objectively, they are just catering to all sectors of their customers. If there are buyers for it then it doesn't really matter whether peons such those of us that hang out here can see the value in the premium...
