Hi Pete, definitely not a 911R but I certainly did take design cues from it and it is to this day my favorite 911.Is that a 1967 911 R? 👍
I too had a Fiat spider many years ago. I just remember getting out of my Fiat and driving my dads GTV and the Alfa just seem to have a more heavy duty fell to it. What is your important between the two?After seeing many Fiat spiders at gatherings with my '93 Alfa Spider Veloce, a second 60s Pininfarina design seemed in order. Found this 1982 Spider 2000 with only 11,400 original miles last year. I've put 800 miles on it since October, and its a completely different driving experience than my Alfa. I enjoy both spiders, and its great to face this choice on sunny driving days!

Sounds like a long term plan.The difference mostly is the driving "feel" of the two cars. The Alfa is smooth and very modern--power steering, power brakes and instant response. The Fiat is vintage--you feel the road and movement of the car more intimately. The Fiat is driving a '60s car built in 1982 vs. a '90s car in a 60's styled interior and body. I plan to keep both Spiders for a long, long time!
