I bought the car pre-owned. The purpose was to show the OPTIONS of the car since it was a custom ordered car, not the price which is at this point, is irrelevant.... thanks for the compliment though!

The way I've been driving lately, I just may die in that interior

YES! But not until I need new tires. The current tires are Michelin Pilot Super Sports with about 75% left. I want some monoblock deep concave wheels, eventually

The sport mode button and suspension button are separate. The car handles relatively soft (hardly) for a Porsche, but once I press the sport and suspension buttons it is more like a GT3 suspension. The smallest bumps in the road cause you to bounce up and down and talking to the person in the passenger seat is like "he-ey, do youuu want to ge-t some st-ar-bucks... lol

I always did find it funny that Porsche fuel gauge measurements show "4/4" and "2/4." "Guys it's cool, we've got 2 gas tanks left, we have at least 1000 miles!"

Enjoy that car, I have always wanted a Porsche but I am at a stage in my life of I can only have one car due to living in an apartment complex, and spaces in the city are expensive. So it's either a Porsche or a more spacious 2-door that can handle the winter for me when it comes to sports cars. The sheer amount of stuff I can fit into my E46 is incredible.

Edit: Okay, considering the car also comes in AWD as well, you officially have me interested, OP.

I can't even fathom owning a dream Porsche, with an absolutely bananas interior that smells like new leather around in Florida.


I would leave the phone, iPod everything at home and just go drive that thing for hours.

I had the lowly Boxster 11 years ago. I never wanted to leave that car, I loved every moment of it!
