Pulled the trigger tonight after almost a year. Got a decent price and 2.9% financing:

07 Base Guards Red w/ Black Leather
5 speed Manual
M6Z - Floor Mats Interior Color
342 - Heated Front Seats
490 - Sound Package Plus
P12 - Self-Dim Mirrors & Rain Sensor
401 - 18" Cayman S Wheel
PPA - Preferred Package
P74 - Bi-Xenon Headlamp Package
573 - Automatic Climate Control
446 - Wheel Caps with Colored Crest

Christened it with a nice drive on Mulholland Hwy between Kanan and Las Virgines. Should have pics this weekend. Time to go read the manual. :dance:

2.9% Unbelievable. Sounds like free money in the US. Can I borrow US$3M at that rate? Seriously...Anyone please let me know via PM.

It's always sunny in LA, right? Get out there and put some miles on your new gator.

Thanks All. It's a huge difference going from a Scion tC to a Porsche.

It's my daily driver so this croc will have a few miles on it once everything is said and done. Perfect weather here, if a bit too warm, and I live 15 minutes from Malibu via canyon road.

Mulholland......Las Virgines..........Kanan Road........Malibu Canyon..........geez those bring back memories (I had a Mustang GT convertible in those halcyon days of the early 90's). Good Porsche roads. Enjoy them all. In contrast, my first drive upon delivery was a cold rainy night on a flat featureless windswept toll road, so you are blessed.

Keep in mind you have a big CHP bullseye on your roof and tailgate with that Guards Red paint! ;)

That said, hope you get a chance to unspool the engine on a drive up the coast.

Oh man, you are going to have some major fun on those roads. :burnout:

I am jealous. Nothing even comes close here in Mass.

Finally got around to taking some shots along PCH yesterday. It really is a brilliant vehicle. Still more power than I know what to do with. Enjoying every minute driving it!

Interestingly my insurance only went up $90 a year and I increased coverage over my previous car.

Congratulation on your Arrest me Red Cayman. You got a great looking car. I'm still shopping for mine. What was the dealer asking and what did you finally negotiate it for?
