My 986 has a new big brother!

I picked up a new DD... a 2013 Cayenne GTS. Ive been needing something big enough to carry my family of 5, my hockey gear, etc., yet I still wanted it to go balls out quick. I sold my M3 sedan and ordered this. It finally arrived after 3 months of waiting.

I think they both look pretty good snuggled up in the garage. Not sure what my first mod will be tho.



Some photos at the dealership:




Cheers

Mark

I looked at those a while back, and loved them, but not enough space for my family of four plus camping gear/etc for family vacations so the wifey said no way Jose.

The dealer had the car front and center waiting for me when I arrived to pick it up. Unfortunately the front of the dealership has a row of handicap parking so it was odd where it was positioned.

The GTS is crazy quick and in sport mode handles like its stuck like glue to the road. The kids are digging it so far as well. My 3 year old wants me to "go fast daddy". I have to keep reminding her of why we have speed limits while in my mind I just want to mash the pedal.

Look around these forums for my posts... I have a ton of photos and threads of my build on the boxster. It's actually a project car that is going to be my sons when he turns 16.
