Lightbulb Do you own your boxster?

I was just wondering what percentage of boxster owners actually owner their Boxster and how.
So did you cut a check for your car when you bought it, financed it, or simply just are leasing it?

I will start first, When I bought my car almost 2 years ago, I cut a check for it on the spot. I had saved up for it and was able to cut a check for the entire thing without any bank help. ITS ALL MINE BABY!

I cut a check on the spot. I've driven my Golf for 100,000 miles in four years. I still have the Golf (also cut a check) and it was worth it because now I have my Rainforest baby!

Fully owned '98, went to a Honda/Mercedes dealership here on the Big Island (no Porsche dealerships here, only Oahu) looking for a car, saw my baby in the lot and took her for a drive.........After having her checked out I bought her w/ an extended warranty as well!

Got a good price (on an 05 with options and special ordered) when I offered cash OTD. The pink slip came in 3 days ago, the plates yesterday and I'll let them stay in the drawer for awhile. Call Mark Taylor of Pacific Porsche in Long Beach in CA.
for the best price on the net.

2003 Boxster Blue/Blue/Gray

I had the money to pay cash, but the interest rate is 2.9% so I couldn't justify puuting all that cash out. The interest I am making on the money is more than that.
