Finally brought it home!

I posted some pics of my new car when it arrived at the dealership in Toronto in mid-Feb the day I "visited" it but I am attaching a few more taken on delivery day, March 23rd, as I thought some of you might enjoy seeing them. I have not been able to post sooner, or even spend much time on this forum, due to excessive business travel lately. The car had 42kms on it on pick-up day and has only 420kms on it today, 280 of them put on just to get it home from the dealership. (waxed it and parked it....no time to play!). I can say that it is everything I hoped it would be so far. Handling is absolutely incredible. The really tough part will be waiting until it has 3,000kms on it before exceeding 4,000rpm (according to my owners manual). I have to confess I have cheated a little, sliding up to 5G's on a couple of occasions......couldn't help myself. Looking forward to next weekend for some wheel time!

Congrats! It is a beauty. Enjoy it my friend!
I have a theory on that exceeding 4000 rpms.. I am in the car business myself.
Every hot rod car that has been through the dealership has been test driven heartily by the lot jockeys. Drive responsibly and keep your warranty paperwork handy.
Just joking.

Best of luck!

Very nice, hope to be joining you in a couple of years with a new S. As for the 5K runs, just remember, OBDII remembers all......

Wow!!

Great color spec (same as mine, although mine is a 2000 model). This is a really nice looking car. I think I need to convince my wife I need to upgrade to a later version.......

What a beauty. What a pain. "excessive business travel" without her.

Congratulations and enjoy the car. I know how big of a pain the break-in period is. I just crossed it myself.

That is my absolute favorite color combo for a Porsche (red with tan interior). Gorgeous Box, MAC. Very very nice!
