  1. First love

    by , 06-01-2012 at 07:34 AM (Life with my CS)
    I've spent a good bit of time (and alas, money) driving and enjoying the 944S2 lately. I just installed some new Koni sport shocks/struts and took it in for an alignment. Next up was a turn at an AutoX to see how things are working. The old 'fo 'fo did pretty darned well and I was able to turn a lap time on par with the Cayman R in attendance (OK, I'll admit it, I hit a cone... ), and I was running all-season street tires at that! I still need to pick up some 968 M030 sway bars, but man does that ...

  3. 4 years!

    by , 01-26-2012 at 01:19 PM (Life with my CS)
    4 years ago today, I picked up my very first Porsche - my 2008 Cayman S, Meteor Gray over Cocoa.

    I don't know I can say I could be any happier with the car than I am. After months and months of car comparisons, test drives, reading every car magazine out there, and then four years and 47,000 miles of actual every-day-driving ownership I can honestly say my CS is an even better car than I hoped it would be! How many times does that happen in the real world?

    Beautiful? ...

  4. A new adventure

    I've been thinking about picking up a "daily beater" sort of car for a while now to keep the miles off the Cayman, which in my ideal world I will keep forever.

    While I wasn't planning on making a move until next spring, a car in great shape, with many years of records, good recent service, a great color combination (IMO), and very fair price came up for sale and I just couldn't pass it up.

    So as of last Monday, I find myself the owner of an India Red over Black/Linen ...

  5. "Senna", the movie

    by , 09-21-2011 at 06:46 AM (Life with my CS)
    I saw "Senna" last night. It's very, very good IMHO. Not so much a documentary as a review of his life in racing, with in-car and race footage, home movies, interviews with Senna and other drivers and owners, TV personalities, etc. There are also several scenes of pre-race drivers meetings where are very interesting.

    His driving skills were absolutely incredible - it's clear from much of the footage how he was constantly "dancing" the car on the edge - and he ...
