    Grey Hair and Coffee

     Okay, so I will turn 70 this year, and I have grey hair (with a slight blue tinge). I love espresso—not cappuccinos or lattes, just natural espresso.   My side/peripheral vision is not as good as it was, and I have to watch my step entering my car on a dark night.  My eyes are light sensitive, so I need sunglasses on bright days. My mind wanders a bit when I drive and I sometimes have to stop very quickly if something is in front or back of me.  I am fairly computer savvy, but still remember making carbon copies on a typewriter.  I am also hopelessly extravagant, addicted to Speed (no not dexadrine to keep me up at night), and often need a real boost to give me a thrill.

    Think I caught the disease from RC, and will visit my local Dr. next week and order some medicine.  The prescription is expensive, but at my age, WTF...

    You guys are great internal medicine docs.  Guess I will have to go to an eye doc to check on my side and rear vision...Smiley

    So narrow windows and poor rear visibility. That means its either a very low car, or a big one. Panamera or maybe a Cayenne Turbo. 


    Re: Grey Hair and Coffee

    It's a panny, not a Cayenne judging where he posted :)

    Congrats.

    side & rear vision = premium package... no? :)

    Re: Grey Hair and Coffee

    Wonderbar, if you were really old you would be driving a Mercedes SL.

    I met a man who was 84, still worked everyday for Northrup Gruman and had just bought a then brand new 993 Turbo. He had owned only Porsche since the early 50's.


    Re: Grey Hair and Coffee

    Takes a long time to become young.  At least that's what I will tell myself when I talk to my local Porsche Dr. next week about the following prescription: 

    Panamera Turbo S (June build/2013 model)

    Agate Grey/Espresso

    Turbo 20 inch rims

    PDK

    PCCBs

    Carbon Interior Package, including multi-function wheel and illuminated door sills

    Black PDLS headlight package

    Roll Up rear side window screens

    Lane Change Assist

    Rear camera

    Some leather stuff

    I will post a few questions about options for group comment soon.  Hope you guys like the medicine--you may want some when you get old and become young.

    Panamera Turbo S...Agate Grey met. with Espresso Natural Leather inside and Carbon Fiber Interior Package ? Smiley

    (I just realized that I guessed this from your first post because I didn't read the other posts and jumped to a Quick Reply Smiley).

    Euro delivery ? Can't wait to hear more details. Smiley

    June build ? Close to mine...mine is planned for an end of May production. Smiley

    If you can wait for one year - WAIT!

    I swear you will love the next generation Panamera. Very very good looking car. I got the chance to see what we will get next year.
