My 2019 718 Boxster was my first and my 2020 911 Carrera was my second, and I have no plans of getting rid of either of them :love:
Will there be more in the future, well it's hard to improve on perfection, but you never know...

The list stands at four: '83 911 SC, '96 993 C4, '01 986 and the current '17 718. I sold the SC (dumb) and still have the other three. I've looked at Corvettes, Hondas (yes), Beemers, and Mercs before deciding that Porsche engineering trumped them all.

The 718 is my first Porsche after several bmw m cars and I think it’s the perfect way to get into the brand. I’m sure I’ll be moving up the Porsche lineup throughout my life.

Two, both of which I still have. A 2004 Cayenne S with 212,000+ miles and my 2018 718 GTS.

I was planning on dumping the Cayenne this spring, but the pandemic put a stop to that idea.

What are your thoughts on the Cayenne? And how reliable as it been ? Still going strong with 200+ ?

For context, I am the 2nd owner. It was my Dad's car originally, but after surviving a few Florida hurricanes sitting in his driveway, I acquired it from him at 204K miles two years ago. He bought it for around $60K new in 2004 and put about as much cash in maintenance into it over the 14 years he had it. Since I have owned it, it has needed a new blower motor (the car's third), alternator, and battery. The interior is showing its age; I have had to glue back on both seat backs for the front seats and much of the interior plastics are cracking. Currently, it has what might be either a starting chain or starter issue, evap leak, and a leak in the washer fluid system.

All that said, it still starts and runs strong, but it's not worth pouring much more cash into it to keep it on the road.

Sounds ridiculous, but I have owned 12 Porsches over the years: a '75 914 2.0, a '66 912, a '68 912, a '85 911 targa, a '86 Carrera coupe, 4 different 944s, a '90 Carrera 2, a '17 Cayman S, and now a '18 Cayman Base( my absolute favorite). At 68yo, I have been around the Porsche world for awhile.

Just one - My 2019 current daily driver - a 2019 Boxster.

I always wanted a Porsche since the early 1970s but, without much thought, just considered BMWs my kind of car and Porsches something achievable but not a car I could responsibly buy. My girlfriend, truly much smarter than me, perceived how much I wanted a Boxster and asked me if I wanted to die someday with the money in the bank or a Porsche in my driveway. I could not mount any credible argument to refute her logic. Within a couple of weeks I had a custom configured 2019 Boxster on order. That was in November 2018 and have not had even an iota of a regret since but have had an unending smile on my face. It is my daily driver and, as nice as the BMWs were (M3, Z3, Z4), I get orders of magnitude more enjoyment from the Boxster.
