Smile My first Porsche

Well, newbie here. At age 40 I just got my first convertible and Porsche for that matter. Love it! Nothing like driving an orange traffic cone down the road with the top down. I have owned several sports cars but never a Porsche or a convertible.

Well looking forward to some great weekend drives, auto crossing, lapping days, ect.

Any words of advice, please pass then on.


Thanks, Troy

Congratulations! Send a picture. The orange Box is something else. Well, I like the body design so much I think they could paint it any color and I would still smile.

I bought my 2004 a year and a half ago. I love it. Its amazing how it is almost always good weather for driving with the top down. Even now, just turn up the heater and enjoy!

What other sports cars have you had? How does the Boxster compare in handling / torque to you other toys?

It does come in other colors. That's just the Limited edition color. Not to mention 2 other new colors only available for 2008. Gold and a Light Blue color. Check it out.

Congrats --I'm guessing "Risky Business" may have influenced your taste in music as well as cars.
