  1. European Delivery of my 2013 Porsche Boxster S: The Prologue

    by , 09-24-2012 at 02:34 PM (The adventures of the RY 981S)
    It is now less than a month until I will be able to pick up my new 981 Boxster S, that I ordered over 2 months ago (see my spec). Since I plan European delivery with a 2 week vacation driving through parts of Europe, I decided to use this blog to journal the journey.

    I will start first with a recap of how I ended up where I am in my first Porsche adventure.


    While this is my first Porsche, I have been interested in buying one for a while. In fact, ...

  2. Road Trip! (Part 2)

Route 29 follows the Delaware River (and the Delaware and Raritan Canal) along the New Jersey – Pennsylvania border. Along the road, many beautiful rural views are available (it IS the Garden State, after all!), ...

    For each of the last 5 years, my younger brother has organized a fund-raising charity golf tournament at a municipal course in Stroudsburg, PA to honor the memory of a departed friend and avid golfer who strongly supported the Make-A-Wish Foundation. I’m a terrible golfer – I play twice a year whether I need to or not! – but I try to be a good big brother and support family and a great cause so I take the opportunity each year to make the drive up north and turn it into a “road trip”.

    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 ...
