My Porsche Cayman, FINALLY!

Hello y'all,
This past weekend I made a dream come true. Since I was four I've wanted a Porsche. I had a red, white, and blue 911 cup car Hot Wheels that was my favorite out of all the hot wheels I had. I still have it to this day. I remember in 2006 when the Cayman was introduced. I was a junior in high school. Top Gear on BBC was my favorite show and Jeremy Clarkson at the end of 2005 reviewed it. He called it the "Cockster." Lol! His review of it wasn't the best, but he did enjoy the drive. I fell in love with it then regardless of his review. So without further adue, here is a picture of it.

PS - I will be listing my mods for sell from the the 135 soon. So get ready for that if you're looking for some mods.

Nice, you must work a few blocks from my old job.

Imbed image fail. Picture my old Z3 M Coupe on the roof, across from the new church, the one that just flooded.

Nope, traded it in for the Cayman. I'll miss the speed of the 135, but the Cayman is all that I imagined it would be and more. I love it. Plus it's CPO and has warranty. The 135 just lost it's warranty and I'm pretty sure the water pump was starting to go or something. I'm not real sure. I got a low coolant level on the way to the dealership. That was the sign for me to get the Porsche. Lol! My good morals hope that nothing is wrong and it was a fluke, I don't want the next owner of the 135 to be up shit creek.

Nope, I work in Commerce, TX. The attached pic is from the dealer listing. I haven't taken any good pictures of it yet.

Well, I'm 25. I guess that is a young age to some. I've essentially lived a quarter of my life. It's taken 25 years to make this dream of mine come true though. I've been very fortunate growing up. Learning the value of a dollar was taught at a young age. Strong discipline and good role models are to thank. I've had a dream of owning a Porsche for a long time. I learned dreams usually don't come to fruition without work, dedication, and persistence.

Congrats man! I'm hoping to replace my 128 with a Cayman next year and find something cheap to daily drive.

I'm jealous! Enjoy!

Congrats.

And it only took 21 years, since you dreamt of the Porsche since you were 4. Even better success ratio!

not to hamper your efforts...but I am pretty sure the 911 offsets don't work for 981/987 cars

Solid choice man! A P-car should be on every enthusiasts' bucket list. Nice to see you made it!

Thank you! That is defiantly a possibility, or maybe a GT3. I'm thinking an Aston Martian DBS or something after that! Dream big or why dream at all, right!?
