New Guy From Illinois

Picked up my first Porsche a few weeks ago. 2018 718 Cayman GTS. I'm glad to have found a dedicated 718 forum. Look forward to learning and commiserating with like minded individuals.

Like someone said before on here, the 718 looks great in every color. The black on black looks great! True sports car.

Black on black is beautiful. My car is only CS, but I still feel it's torque and acceleration addictive. A GTS? WOW have fun out there.

Welcome! Enjoy the car. Mine in currently sitting on a dock in Emden.

What part of Illinois are you in, North, Central or Southern? I'm in east-central in the flattest county in Illinois. Great for straight line fun, but the only curves are the interstate ramps. Let us poor flatlanders know if you have any good driving roads. I've had some fun in the Galena area with my prior ride, but I'd sure like to find something a little closer.

About 55 miles west of Chicago in the Campton Hills area.......< Notice I said "Hills". Actually have some interesting roads out here. Google McGough road in Kane county, a few nice curves and banked beautifully.

Thanks,

I'm going to be doing some "work" in the Dwight area over the summer, so I appreciate the tip.

Welcome @wriggly -- nice-looking car you've got there.

I guess with black rims it could be called 'triple-black' even without black cabriolet top.

As the ultimate mono-chromatic non-color, black gets a fair rap for: boring, conservative, common. But the flip side of that coin goes: sleek, menacing, classic. I'm feeling less of the former, more of the latter with my triple-black Boxster S (pictured, lower left).

Thanks. I like the way black cars look, but I like a lot of other colors as well and some much better than black. I currently own three black cars and they are work to take care of. I do black cars because the wife is Henry Ford reincarnated. If I come home with a new car and it's black, I have less **** to pay.
