    Cue the Jefferson's Theme.....

    Movin' on up....



    First, movin' out, off she goes, the finest Porsche I've ever owned. 2004 C4S Cab, flawless, 20k miles, absolutely a phenomenal ride I've enjoyed from day one:




    Next, movin' in! More details to follow:





    2009 Turbo Cab, Silver/Dark Nat Grey full leather, 6sp, sport chrono, etc.

    Been in the garage all day (dealer) doing a few minor mods. Will post final pics later next week when done along with all the pertinent details.

    Many thanks for all of you who provided feedback, advice, opinion, etc.

    Special thanks:

    Chris Sanner - the guy worked his nuts off for me, just trying to help me in my last ditch effort to secure an '09. Wasn't his sale, but the guy bent over backwards for me.

    Rob in Washington - also provided much needed input, advice and guidance with some good info on pricing and available vehicles.

    Sharky - I pestered the crap out of him, Cannga and Chris (TT Surg) for advice on pipes. More to come.

    Alan Baylis at Wheel Enhancement - a true professional. The guys knows the products, the pros and cons, and was a great ear to hear me out.

    CEC/TechArt (goodies to follow)

    Champion Motorsport - great guys to talk with who have some amazing cars, really helped me narrow the must have's from the want-to-haves.

    Rennsport One - super guys who know the cars, the goodies, and where to find it all.

    Many others....will compose a full detailed story next week. Exhausted now.

    Thanks.

    Something about a convertible Turbo makes my heart skips a beat, or two, every time I see one. She's a beauty!

    Didn't hear from you for a few weeks so I thought you've changed your plan. Funny but I do feel happy at this moment, for you!
    Great move on your part and much, much congratulations!

    Congratulation! Enjoy every moment .

    There is something very special about Cabs! (but to some like me it was an acquired taste)


    Re: Cue the Jefferson's Theme.....

    Many congrats - looking forward to more details and lots of pics..

    Details: 

    2009 Turbo Cabriolet 
    6speed 
    Arctic Silver Metallic 
    Black Canvas Top 
    Dark Grey Natural Full Leather 
    Thicker 3-spoke multifunction 
    Heated/Ventilated leather seats w/lumbar and memory 
    Parking Assist 
    Bluetooth 
    XM 
    Sport Chrono Package Turbo 
    6-disc DVD/CD Changer 
    Floor mats in interior color (w/Porsche logo) 
    Universal Audio Interface (iPod) 
    Rear Center Console Leather 
    Porsche Crest in headrests 
    Seat Belts - Silver 
    Factory Short Shift Kit 
    Foot Rest Aluminum 

    After Delivery: 
    Clear Sidemarkers 
    Silver Crest 
    Champion RF67 19" w/Michelin Pilot Sport 2's 
    Lower lips front/rear and rockers color matched 
    Tubi Street Exhaust 
    TechArt Twin Exhaust Tips 


    As for the configuration, it was not precisely what I would have ordered, but was close. Might have wanted adaptive seats, but I drove both and realized I'm the only driver, I'm not likely to go on an 8 hour road trip, and the regular seats offering ventilation felt just fine (full power and memory, heated, ventilated). Also, I like the thicker sport wheel over the multifunction, but the thicker MF wheel is pretty good and I'm getting used to it. Would not have ordered silver belts, parking assist or cd changer, but again, this one was loaded up nicely (leather rear console is a nice plus, along with XM, Bluetooth, iPod, etc).
