Back again for the first time!! New owner

Thats right back in black. Bought another Boxster this weekend. 05s Black on Black with the Sport Package. Sports Chrono, Pasm, and sports seats. Also has heated seats for those cold winters here in Texas.

Sad to see my Silver Box go but it was time to move on. Picked up on the east coast and drove it all the way back to Texas this weekend. What a road trip!!

Thanks guys. Thats the reason I drove it home Nine8Six. Almost a 2k road trip, with all my detours ALONE. Just me and the Box and had plenty of room for more luggage. Will remember this for a while. Hopefully enough to forget my first Porshe.

Yes, it's a great bonding experience I am really happy you found the "right" one Randy! A beautiful car with some great options! Nice way to make lemonade out of lemons! Looking forward to some drives
