Hello everyone,

I just bought a 2008 CS Porsche Design Edition with only 5000km (3150 miles) on it. From what I understand the original owner had 7 other cars (a couple of Ferraris, a DB7, and a SL65 AMG among them), therefore he didn't have enough days in one week to drive this one being the 8th car he owned :)

There was a minor damage to one of the stripes on the hood and I ordered new ones.

I just can't wait to get behind the wheel every weekend...

Take care,

SY

Hi
my local porsche representative still has one of those 2008 special edition bad guys and is trying hard to sell it (black/black,only few kilometers,manual tranny,some alcantara leather options,19" rim, more hp than standard production etc.).
I loved the aggressive look of your new car but I let it go for one 2009 with the new PDK.
Hope you post pictures soon
Enjoy in good health and congrats. :cheers:

Hi rexambar... Thanks for your wishes...

Just a small correction though. the PDE has the same hp as the CS at 295hp.

Mine is the 5spd Tiptronic S. Too much traffic here in Istanbul for manuals :)

Thanks again.

So, the DE stripes are tape/decals? I expected them to be painted, under the clear coat. Doesn't that make them suseptible to damage and wax build-up?

Beautiful car - enjoy.

Thanks a lot.

Yes they're decals and they look like vinyl to me though I am no expert. And yes damages and wax build up is an issue...

i love that car. congrats.

Did you get the briefcase full of goodies as well?
No. The original owner kept those. I wouldn't want his 2 yr old sunglasses and luggage anyway :)

Nice ride indeed! I too am the proud owner of a Design Edition. The USA has kinda been on sale these days, our dollar is now close to par so I couldn't help myself. I picked up a PDE 1 with 9000 miles. Great option list and it is 003 out of 777. I am picking her up at the border this week.

Cheers

Good news from Canada, then :)

I wonder if anyone got No001 or it is still owned by Porsche?

Congrats on the PDE-1, asircali! It's a beautiful take on a wonderful car! I love my #297. Enjoy!

g-money,
you may want to look on ebay for those stripes. I have seen sellers in the past 2 weeks offering full PDE-1 striping kits (not Porsche's, I think, but they look good in all the photos) for as low as US$80 plus shipping; may be worth a look. Have been thinking of it myself as the previous owner of my PDE managed to nick a few of the stripes.
