Talking Just picked up my '07 987

Finally pulled the trigger. I picked up my "07 black on sand biege toy last night.
Can't wait for the weekend. I will be driving to Napa and the surrounding area with my wife. I have been waiting a looooooooooong time for this day. Anyway, I got a great deal from the Porsche dealer in Fremont. A CPO car in great shape.
Driving home last night, I had my first experience with perma-grin.

We "curts" seem to have a love affair with black on sand beige 987's!!

Buying a CPO car was also a smart move. I haven't lost a second's sleep over all the "issues."

Congratulations!! I saw your car on the Porsche CPO site. It looked really nice.

For those of us still in the hunt and search mode for a CPO 987, do you mind sharing what you were able to purchase the car for?

Enjoy that trip to Napa!

I am Confused

Wikipedia shows the Boxster as a 986 model until 2004. Then they show the Boxster as 987 from 2005 onwards.

But they also show the Cayman as a 987. Is this correct?

The car with photos is still listed on the Fremont Porsche web site. Just search for Boxster under their CPO cars. Has a list price of $33,988. What did you get it for?

Thanks for welcoming me into the Forum. After reading all the "issues" I decided to buy a CPO car. Without a doubt, I feel good about spending a little more money for the piece of mind.
And, I have taken a few "extra " trips just to get that perma-grin going... Still can't belive the feeling I get driving this car.
Regarding the cost, I thought I got a good deal. In the end, I paid 32K and Porsche was offering 1.9% financing for CPO cars.
Anyway, the guys at Porsche of Fremont were very easy to deal with. I would buy there again in a heartbeat.

Thanks for the information. Figured you were out and about adding to your perma-grin experiences! I'm looking forward to those!

And I agree about the CPO warranty. I've bounced back and forth between considering non-CPO vs CPO cars, and I'm 99% sure I'm going the CPO route too.
