Waited for 40 years but finally my first Porsche

Title says it all. Only had it 3 days but loving it it.

Was worried about the 718 as people complained so much that the flat 4 sound was so poor next to the flat 6. I have not heard a flat 6 in real life but I think the flat 4 turbo sounds awesome!

It is one of the first 718 (late 2016) and has done 27K miles. Around £10.5K of options on it.

Looks great! I really like the color combination.
It looks like my Boxster interior. Chalk and black full leather. Excellent!! Goes great with the dark blue!
Also like the 19" wheels!
Exterior is Sapphire Blue with Black + Crayon or Chalk interior

Beautiful interior, would match just about any color and looks so elegant!
Congrats! A lot miles and smiles behind the wheel.
Just noticed that you also have 2 way sport plus seats also! Great options on a very fun car!
I only had the car 3 days and the only complaint I have is the tyre noise (19" wheels with PASM). I have Pirelli P Zeros on the car and I normally prefer Michelin. From what I can find on the internet Michelin PS4 should be a better tyre all round, still be N rated and be quieter.
Simply superb color combination. Only downside is that I now know I made a mistake in not ordering the chalk color interior. Your pictures make me ooze. I better not tell my Goddess wife, who was the one who thought a chalk interior wouldn't work. 😍

Your reaction to the exhaust note shows why social media can be so wrong, so much of the time. A person should form their own impressions rather than read drivel written by folks who probably never experienced the thing they are writing about. Good luck, sir!!
On tyres....mine still has original Yokahama N0 with 10k miles...quiet and only half worn.
Welcome aboard! If you're anything like me, it'll never grow old!
Congratulations! I also have waited years to be an owner as well! I simply love the 718!
Congratulations! Great choice on Sapphire Blue and the 19” wheels! I have a black interior but yours is stunning!

Amazing looking car, congrats! Any future mods?
Really nice looking car, I love that blue. You will probably find yourself staring at it a lot - when you aren't driving it that is! As you have no doubt discovered, the car is just sooooo good. I wish you many miles of enjoyable motoring.
Beautiful car and perfect color...but how do you lower the roof? :sneaky:

Only mod that comes to mind is a reversing camera. Plug and play and around £300 on Ebay. The unit also allows input from additional cameras so as it do that, possibility camera in front as well or even two cameras, one each side for checking kerbs for parking? However, cannot see a way of neatly installing side cameras unless small fish eye camera on underside of mirror housing? Just thought of that while writing this so may not be a good idea!
