Hi


I just joined the forum and here are screen shots of my build.

Presently living in Georgia and taking delivery at the Atlanta delivery center.

Looking forward to participating in the discussions.

This is my first Porsche and hopefully will be delivered toward the end of the year.

This will be a 2022 model year Boxster.
.
Stay safe stay well.

On Order 2021 Carmine Red Cayman

Hello,
Recently joined the forum and have asked a few questions (thanks to all that gave me their thoughts).
We've been talking about getting a Cayman for a few years and several months ago started actively looking.
We checked out a few CPO ones from a couple of dealerships and almost bought one (they had it for sale for 85 days), we offered $2000 less and were ready to take it home, but they declined.
So we went home and started configuring them on the website, well that hooked us since it was approx. 15K more to get a new one the exact way we wanted it.
But of course they called back over the next 3 days lowering the price till finally they were at what we offered, but we declined.
In the meantime I found an Allocation a few weeks away, and now the day is finally here and it was locked and sent in today. Delivery is suppose to be beginning of July.

Super excited

T

Hello All, I'm from Downunder and ordered in January a Cayman GTS 4.0. Its the 7th Porsche I have owned(including a 993 RS and new 996 GT3 Clubsport), the latest which was a 981 Cayman GTS in Carmine Red...very nice. Really very excited about the new baby arrival, but petrified of potential delivery delays!! What are people's own experiences in this new weird world we live??

Hi, my name is Greg and I've been a member since I purchased my 2021 718 Boxster GTS 4.0 a couple weeks ago. I'm a retired jarhead living in Ventura California and decided after 30 years of abuse in the service I'd treat myself to something nice and got my first Porsche and first convertible, both were on the bucket list. To be completely honest though, I was in line originally for a new hard top convertible C8 Corvette and due to a long story boring I cancelled my order and purchased the Boxster. Regrets? Well, I never drove the Corvette, but I was a bit disillusioned with the high rate of flipping, transmission issues, and poor build quality. I may rent one in the future to see how the C8 compares, but for now the Boxster completely satisfies my driving senses and I can't stop looking at the **** thing. Drive safe and Semper Fi !

A jarhead in California! Head East young man..... And welcome to our madness. Like you I was enamored with the C8 hype; all the reviews; all the YouTube content; all the cool tech.... etc. I ordered one (convertible) last Summer from one of the top dealers in the US. By January of this year there was still no firm delivery date let alone much progress on those in the "Q". I tired of waiting and the uncertainty, got my deposit back and jumped aboard the Boxster bandwagon. I'm doing a custom build and looking forward to having some wheels early Summer.

Duck and Cover Ripper!

Heya all-

Just joined. Have enjoyed other cars, but this is my first Porsche, a bit apprehensive honestly given the $$. But it is fun and quite the machine, based on the little I've driven it so far.

Hoping to learn from you all and make some contribution.

Thanks!

Hello everyone!

Just picked up my first Boxster S from the showroom floor in West Central Florida. Silver with black and red interior.Traded in an absolutely stunning red 2015 Corvette Z06.

I am a semi retired radiologist who shuttles back-and-forth from Ohio to Florida. Would’ve loved to get the manual however wife insisted on PDK. After driving, I find the PDK is just fine.

I did some maintenance on our Cayenne and of course on the Corvette myself but will probably need some help for this, my first, mid engine machine. Hope to learn much from this forum.

Ron

Ron, if you're up by The Villages, I recommend contacting Scott Prince at Porsche of Ocala. He seems to be very knowledgeable and super pleasant to deal with. Gratz on the new Box. I'm down to less than two months, currenlty carless, and pulling my hair out! lol. Pictures are required.....

Thanks Raven! I will post pics as soon as I get some good ones. Right now I’m up in Ohio and the car is down in Florida. I’m actually in the Sarasota area so Ocala would be a bit of a drive for me but thanks anyway. I will keep it in mind as a back up.

Hi all, first post...
I've been visiting this forum (as well as 1 or 2 others ;)) for a while, absorbing as much 718 info as I could -> thanks all!
I ordered my Boxster GTS back in September as soon as the PDK was confirmed and today was pickup day!!!
Aventurine Green/black interior with satin platinum wheels as well as a few options. The colour changes depending on the light so hopefully get some sunnier weather here in Brisbane over the weekend to get some better pics.
