    Re: The Official Just Took Delivery of My 718 Thread

    Hi,

    New member here joining from Belgium. Sorry, if this is not the correct thread.

    I previously owned a basalt black 987 which was the best car I ever had. Really enjoyed that for 5 years and then sold it in 2012. I ordered the new 718 in December and delivery would be around May-June. I haven't seen a new 718 in the configuration that I ordered so I am very anxious to see IRL how it will work out. I opted for Rhodium silver with black Carrera S wheels, black sport exhausts with sport exhaust system and sport chrono, black leather sport seats with Porsche logo, Bose, gps and park assist and the chrome fuel cap. Now I just need to survive the long wait... I am interested to see pictures of other member's cars and how configurations work out and your experiences...Have already seen some very nice combo's in this thread. Will post pictures of my beast once delivered.

    Cheers!

    So not exactly "just" for me...actually I took delivery at the Atlanta PEC back in October, but just found this forum now.

    Re: The Official Just Took Delivery of My 718 Thread

    My first post here.

    I'm waiting for my new 718 Cayman S, and it is a tough wait! I ordered it back at the beginning of November and am still waiting! It was apparently finished in January and then sat around for several weeks before going to the docks to be shipped to the US. The dealer told me it was going to be shipped mid February, so I thought great - it'll be here soon. But then they called mt at the end of February and said it still hadn't been shipped and was still in Germany! Ugh - it would have been better to not promise me the mid February date and get my hopes up. So now the dealer said it was put on a ship on March 3rd (and I had him verify that multiple times!) So new estimated date is end of March. Besides the crazy long wait and desperation to get my new car, I'm also concerned about the US enacting some sort of import tax and making the car exponentially more expensive than the original agreed upon price!

    So, as I'm sure everyone else in this thread has gone through - I just want it here now.

    It's a stick shift, sapphire blue, sports seats.

    Re: The Official Just Took Delivery of My 718 Thread

    Hi All, I just joined and I recently took my new order on 2/26/17. I ordered the car on 11/22/17 and it was supposed to arrive in mid-April 2017. So it was a nice surprise getting it nearly 2 months earlier. It's been a blast driving the 718 Cayman these past couple of weeks. The driving experience is very different from the 987 and 981 models. It's very quick and it never feels like I'm driving fast when in actuality, it's blazingly fast, maybe too quick for its own good.

    Mine is a 718 Cayman base, Black Exterior, Black Standard Interior, PDK, with the Sport Chrono Package and Sports Chrome Style Dual-Exhausts as well as most of the safety features.

    Here are some pictures of my family's new car. It's been a real pleasure driving the car since we took delivery of it a couple weeks ago. A 2017 Porsche Cayman 718, black exterior, black interior, with PDK and sport chrono package as option highlights.

    Pretty car, congrats! Are those photos taken up in the East Bay hills by chance?

    Thanks! We took a picture on top of the hills when going through the Caleveras to Sierra Road loop in Milpitas and San Jose. It's a lovely drive. I'm basically just using the Porsche GTS app now to find new routes I've never taken before. I found this route through the app.

    Those Cayman 18" wheels actually look pretty good on the car in your photographs. Much more interesting than how they look on the configurator.

    Beautiful car. Enjoy it in good health.

    Thank you very much. I was worried about them. I didn't think about changing the wheels until after my car's production date already started. I would've got the Carrera wheels if I could go back and choose again. However, I was relieved when I saw it in person and it looks pretty nice. Honestly though, all the wheels I've seen have looked great on these cars even from the 981 generation.

    Re: The Official Just Took Delivery of My 718 Thread

    Well my car is apparently in the port now, and has to wait for who knows how long for PDI. It will have been almost 5 months by the time I get it. I'm pretty frustrated at this point as that is far too long a wait for a car. I don't think I'd do this again.

    Hopefully it'll be worth it. My car was supposed to arrive at about 4 months, or a bit more. But something happened and a slot opened up for earlier production and my dealer asked me if I'd like to take it. I said yes and I ended up getting it almost 2 months earlier. My point being, I would've been in your situation if an open slot didn't become available. But so far the car has been worth it and it's been a blast to drive. I've had it for almost 3 weeks and I've already put in 2,000 miles. It's been a real pleasure and hope you'll feel the same here!

    Share more with us about the 718 you bought. Details and photos are always welcomed.

    Enjoy your car in continued good health. 2,000 miles in 3 weeks sounds like what I did with my last Porsche. Drove it every day, several times a day, sometimes for no more reason than how enjoyable it was to drive.

    Just got an email from the dealer saying the car is done with PDI and can now be released to the transporter. So that is good news.

    Re: The Official Just Took Delivery of My 718 Thread

    So, just took delivery today. My dealer (Colorado) had ordered a car for me from a dealership in Alabama. But after 2 weeks they still didn't have the damn thing on a truck yet so i go impatient and just went to a different dealer and bought off of the lot:
    Base Cayman
    Graphite Metallic Blue
    14 way Sport Plus Seats (Black)
    PDK
    18inch Boxster Wheels
    Heated Multi Function Wheel
    Luggage Net
    Smoking Package
    Power Steering Plus
    Nav Module
    Bose
    Connect Plus
    Prem Package

    Super excited with the car. I am going to do a video review tomorrow and post it up. And dont believe the hype, it sounds Fantastic. I had a 2014 Cayman and a 2014 Boxster, so I know how the old model sounded. It doesn't sound the same for sure. But great in a different way.

    If anyone is interested, 5% off MSRP and i got them to lower the clear bra cost to $895 to match a competitors bid.
