Apart from the lucky people who already have their own Spyder, has anyone seen one on the road? I live in Orange County (California), which is usually a haven for all things Porsche - but haven't seen one on the road.

I've seen a beautiful white 987.2 Spyder driving around locally a time or two and a couple of 981 Spyders at local gatherings & such. I'm in love with their details and that rear 3/4 view is tops. But no, not many of them around at all. Hell there aren't many Caymans or Boxsters around here, period! Which is a large part of these cars' charm, imho.

Last week in the Pasadena area I spotted a white Spyder on the westbound 134 near Harvey Ave. off ramp. It had Rusnak Porsche paper plates. Driver was by himself, so I don't think it was a customer taking it out for test drive from nearby Rusnak Porsche.

I am in OC too and I haven't see any Spyder or GT4 on the road, I do see a bunch of GT4s on the autoX through. I am guessing but I think OC people don't think Spyder is "high end" enough and the top might be too bothersome.

Keeping this to random sightings, I have seen 2-3 GT4s but no Spyders yet. However, I think we need to give the warm weather another few weeks before we can say how often we may see them.

No, never. But then I live in such a nice area where I see a 911/boxster may be once a month. Seriously :(

I have not seen Spyders but I saw 2 GT4s in one day, within 2 miles of each other. THAT was a SURPRISE in my area.
