Smile Just picked up first Porsche, a 986 in good cond..

Folks, I am impressed...thanks for letting this nervous buyer lurk and learn before I jumped into the world of 986s. The PPI advice was spot on. Pics to come as soon as I slow my driving pace down to a reasonable level... Love this car...it's brutally smooth and a absolute joy to share with my friends/family.

One minor issue...how does one park it and not look back a thousand times..when does that wear off...?

V/R

I find myself parking close to the window at restaurants so I can look at it while I eat.. That's a whole new level of crazy

Sir, I know what you mean..I just finished a bbq meal with my wife at Busbees BBQ in Bandara TX. I sat no less than 1 foot from our boxster. I'll call it the 986 new normal..

I do the same thing -that is park it as close as possible to the restaurant I am going to. However as long as you are insured for theft then replacement is not a problem.
There are lots of Boxsters available to buy.....
