    First post and First Porsche is on the next boat!

    I've been lurking for a bit while deciding to order a 997 S. Finally took the plunge and found a car already built that pretty much meets my specs. Dealer says it's at the port awaiting the next boat.

    I will be selling my '04 E55 AMG w/ Kleemann K2 package. Will be sad to see it go as it was a complete animal. However, I'm not driving it much and figured if i'm going to have a garage queen, it may as well be a sports car. I'm thinking I can have a lot more fun in the Porsche (at much lower speeds!) than in the Benz. Was able to take an extended test drive at a dealer with both me and the salesman driving. What a blast!!

    Was also pleasantly surprised at how hard the 997 S pulls. Was afraid I would be disappointed coming from my modded AMG which excels in the torque and acceleration dept.

    Here's the spec on my car:

    GT Silver
    Carrera Sport Wheels w/ colored wheel caps
    sport chrono package
    sport shifter
    power seats
    heated seats
    self dimming mirrors
    Bose sound package

    Just in time for the Spring!!

    I'm keeping my 05 E55

    but my 2006 C2S is scheduled for an April build. I sold my beloved 2003 M5 to buy the MB, and now wished I would have kept the M5. The E55 has a monster torque motor, but the handling is "disengaged". I bought an M3 cab that I'm telling myself I'll never sell, as the new E60 M3 will be a V8. I think you'll enjoy the Porsche; my last one was an '84 911 SC...and I've been thinking about P cars ever since I sold it to make room for a family.

    Chris... what interior color?

    Congrats on the find.

    oops, forgot about that. Black. If I was ordering maybe I would have gotten grey or blue or... God, I'm glad the car was already built. I went back and forth for two weeks between black and silver - ended up with GT!
