    Now that I've completed my BB10 collection with my recent purchase of the Q5, I've been getting the itch for something else. That itch has got me looking at the Porsche devices. Given how expensive these phones are, it may just be a pipe dream as putting my kids through college in ten years is probably the more responsible thing to do as a parent.

    Hooooooowever... CrackBerry is my refuge and escape from the real world so I can at least indulge in some of my BlackBerry fantasies here!

    That said, I've been doing a lot of drooling over the Porsche phones and have decided that at some point, I would like to own one. But at $2000 a pop, I have to be extremely selective about my purchase.

    I love the look of the 9981, especially in black. That phone just exudes luxury. But I can't go back to OS7. As much as I loved my 9900, I fired it up the other day just for nostalgic reasons and the OS feels extremely dated. Plus I can never go back to that browser now that I'm a year in with the incredible BB10 browser.

    The 9982 is a nice looking phone but it just doesn't look different enough from the Z10 for me to warrant a purchase. I also can't see it bumping off my Z30 as a daily driver when it comes to an all touch phone.

    So that leaves me with my dream luxury BlackBerry... a Porsche Q10! it would have sharper corners, the awesome 9981 keyboard and some subtle touches here and there that would make it pop and stand out over the Q10. Move the BlackBerry logo below the screen for a bigger bezel and more swiping room like the Q5, throw in a premium Porsche Design leather holster and load it up with an official 10.2.1 OS and you have yourself a magnificent luxury device that I may consider throwing 2 Gs to get!

    What do you guys think? Would you want a Porsche Q10 (P9983?). Does anyone know if BlackBerry has one in the works?

    And please hold off on the "BlackBerry has bigger issues to deal with than waste time on a frivolous phone like this" or "why would anyone spend that much money on a phone?" comments. I think we can all agree that discussing things like OS leaks and which phone is more superior can be considered first world problems so let us just indulge in a little luxury talk, okay?

    I honestly think this device will come sometime. The fact that they'd make 25 gold P'9981 devices though... just doesn't make sense to me. That device is old.

    I think a P'9983 would do really well amongst the crowd that it's aimed at, and I know the Porsche Design devices are "an acquired taste," I personally think they all look cool, ESPECIALLY the black P'9981.

    On top of a P'9983, I'd also like to see more limited or special editions of the Q10. The white/gold one wasn't very nice looking to me, as I'm not big on gold to begin with... though a black/gold combo would look nice I'd think.

    If I had the money, I would love a Porsche Q10!
    I really liked the look of the P'9981 and if they could do a BB10 version, it would be awesome.

    I have seen and used (briefly) 9981 (black,silver and gold) and 9982 (silver) and boy oh boy these devices are slick, they ooze luxury. The exclusivity that comes with these PD phones is par none, not even a gold plated iphone5S.

    9982 looks good but a q10 based 9983 would be so awesome!!

    I won't be buying it though

    Yes please! I'm sure they're working on one but have no way of knowing for sure. I can only imagine how awesome it would be!
