Cool Porsche Cayman S???

So my girl got into Rider University, and I wanted to suprise her. She is inlove with Porsche and she loves the Cheyenne, but also she thinks shes not ready for an SUV. So I'm thinking about getting her a Black / Terra interior in a Step Auto. She has a MINI S now in auto. Do you think this car is a little much from a female starting college? Does the car have a little to much power? Shes an ok driver, sometimes she doesnt pay attention lol. So for one I'd be glad to get it for her, but on the other hand I also fear her driving it. What do you guys think. Girl + Cayman S = ???

frankly, I dont see girls driving any other porsches than Boxsters. College is scary, they might fuck up the cars. I only take my 330 on Fridays. And even then, I park it all the way in the back and at least 1 empty space between the cars around.

I tried to build one and it came out to about 80k. Everything was hella expensive. THe metallic paint alone was almost a grand. Tiptronic is $3200 more!!! WTF is that?? That's just nonsense. I dont even know what to include in the car even if I could afford one.

Women drive all kinds of Porsches here. Although the only people I've seen driving GT2s and GT3s were probably men. But lots of women drive Carreras.

I don't worry about my car at school but that's probably because there are a few other e90s there, IS250/350s, M3s, Boxters/Carreras, S classes, new SLKs, etc. I fit in I guess.

... yea we share all our finances, same bank accounts.. We kinda play the grown up game lol. The 14th this month will be 1 year 3 months for us I love her shes awsome. Theres lots of girls out there where they just dont give a shit about anything and party and smoke and do all that crap. At least she is real, going to school to be an accountant, wants to start her own business. shes at an internship right now. Hell i dont mind paying for her schooling, well just be paying student loans till we die. Not so bad tho she got 9000 a year schollarship. Once she starts her business as an accountant, itll help me out in business alot, considering i am into the whole Construcion, Owning my own Company, building and renovating houses and real estate investing. Think ill keep her around for a while ahahah.. well forever i hope.. She does so much tho, and i just wanna congradulate her and thank her for everything by forfilling her dream of owning a Porsche.

How can you be talking about having a lifetime's worth of student loans and buying an $80K Porsche as a gift in the same thread?

Anyway, not my business... but unless you're Donald Trump buying your girlfriend a car after just over a year of being together sounds like a bit much. Even The Donald would be wary of setting too high of a precedent from the get-go.

But what do I know, I'm older than you are and I couldn't even afford a Porsche Cayman for myself.

BTW... nice pics in your sig. The black E90 and the red Mini make a great couple.
