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! :eek: Already received a set of the clear markers.

Boxster S
manual trans
PSE, PASM, PTV, SC
20" Carrera S wheels
14 way seats

Great minds think alike!!!:cool: 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.

I have a VIN...now waiting for a boat to get it over here. :nerd:
Awesome, keep us posted on that. Just make sure you inspect it a lot before taking delivery since anything can happen from the time it leaves the plant to being on your driveway.

I was pretty patient waiting for my car until I started this "tracking" the boat stuff. First I had the wrong boat and thought my car had landed a week earlier than it did. When I figured out the correct boat, it took nearly 13 days for the darn boat to get to Rhode Island. They musta run out of the food for the hamsters powering that ship.

After the ship landed, it was another week until the car got from Rhode Island to NJ.

I think maybe it's better just to wait for the call from the SA. :)

I can't help myself lol. Already looked up the possible schedules and boats. A soon as my SA gives me the dates I'm on it. :D
So here's how it goes when you track the boat: first you'll see a little icon that shows the boat leaving Emden and then as you track it it'll go through the English Channel into the open sea. Then the boat will just appear to sit there for a number of days, making no progress. At first I though the sailors were busy playing spin the bottle, but no, the GPS can't track the ship in the open sea (unless you pay to follow via satellite). You will get an estimated ETA at the U.S. port (for northeasterners, that would be Davisville, RI). Then you'll find that the ETA is off by a day or two (and never early). Finally, when the ship nears land, you'll be able track it again and even see the little tow boat icons moving to meet the ship and guide it to port. Exciting! But then you gotta wait all over again for the darn thing to show up at the dealer (about a week or so).

Patience is a virtue; patience waiting for a new Porsche is unlikely.
