GT Silver 718 Cayman on order

Hi,


Had a 718 Boxster loaner for two days. See picture. Loved the way it handles. And it looks absolutely stunning. The engine sounds different then what I'm used to from my Macan GTS, but not bad to me at all. Was not in the market for a convertible. So I went and put an order in for a 718 Cayman yesterday. Hoping for late April delivery. Pretty excited


This is my built: PH7W87H4


Looking forward being part of this forum.

By the way I saw your post over on the Macan Forum. I think that as more people order and take delivery this site will become more active--hopefully! Ha Ha

Hey Gallatin, My Boxster S, which was ordered in January for April delivery, is GT Silver and Bordeaux Red/Black full leather. It is such a classic Porsche combo. But those orange corner markers on GT Silver have to go! Already received a set of the clear markers.

Great minds think alike!!! I decided on the GT Silver after seeing it person. I always had Black or White cars so this will be a nice change--the GT Silver really Pops! You are right about the orange reflectors--they will be changed right away. I envy you the Boxster S--I purposely didn't drive one because I knew I would want it. ha ha If I stay on schedule my delivery is set for mid April.
