It will be interesting to see how you like the 718 Cayman S given your extensive experience in road racing! Have you had the opportunity to drive a Cayman S yet?Hello All:
I've replied here a few times but should probably do a proper intro posting:
I'm in New Jersey and just retired (college prof).
My car will be a 2018 “Plain Jane” white, base model Cayman with PDK.
Ordered my Cayman from an NJ dealer the first week in August with planned delivery of early November in Atlanta.
We’re hoping to do the PEC in Atlanta if timing works out (we would fly down and drive it home). Right now, it looks like my car will arrive on the planned date, but the first PEC slot is early December (I just spoke with the scheduler in Atlanta). There is some chance that the date could be moved to mid-December which is too late for us (due to holidays with our large family and grand kids). I have about another week to confirm or cancel the PEC but we’re really hoping to do it if we can squeeze it in.
The Porsche replaces an NB Miata which has been the best car I’ve ever owned. I’ll admit I’ve been tempted by the new Miata RF, but in the end, the Cayman has more appeal to me (plus I already have three other roadsters). I owned a 356 for a brief time in the '60s, (and it barely ran), so I consider this my first real Porsche.
I’m married with kids and grand kids and I’m a long time road racer and vintage roadracer here in the eastern US. I have a bunch of in-car racing videos on Youtube (search "aeronca65t racing").
If the PEC thing works out, my wife will help me drive the Cayman home from Atlanta. We have some other long tours planned in the car in '18.
Hopefully the PEC works out and you upload some footage of it for the rest of us to see
