That sounds like a very fair deal. Check to make sure you get the full warranty term. PDK is awesome!

Sounds like a very nice discount, most of the options are very desirable and Basalt black is a fantastic color.

get the deal on the 09, I went from 07 CS to 09 C...I think the 09 is nicer car, plenty fast...and I would be very leary of DFI engines until those issues get sorted out...

Being a new Cayman S owner...
I've read alot of posts in the last few weeks.
I haven't read any conveying buyers remorse.
If you can afford it...
GO FOR IT !
:banana:

I'll repeat a part of a previous post...
I snuck out of the house in the middle of the night after buying the Cayman S.
2 hours later when I was crawling back in bed...
Without moving a muscle... the wife asked...
Did you have a good time?
It was then that I realized...
I was still smiling !
:hilarious:

Sounds like a nice car. I am a fan of basalt black. Great color.
alan,
I live in a HOT,SUNNY,HUMID TROPICAL COUNTRY so I am a bit concern about BLACK/BLACK porsche but on the other hand I love the color.
Any of you have some thoughts,opinion about this
thanks

I would be at your dealership when they open in the morning. At that deal the car will not be there for long. That is a sweet sweet deal.

Like others have said, that is a fantastic deal. I put in my vote to go for it as well.

If you love the color, don't be too concerned about the sun. That's when the car looks its best.

Awesome car. My only debate would be could I live with an automatic transmission vs a manual stickshift and clutch pedal. Otherwise the car looks perfectly equipped and a great color.

Have you owned a black car before? I would be concerned about Black/Black in the DR. Central Florida (where I live) is listed as a humid subtropical climate but the DR is tropical. Many more cars here are white rather than dark colors and there is a reason. The car will be fine...but you will spend an uncomfortable few minutes every time you leave it in the sun and start it up. I would suggest a dark tint on the windows to limit the sunload to the interior as much as possible. Also, use a windshield shade. Black cars look gorgeous....but they come with a price in hot sunny climates.
