    Dad got a Cayman S!

    My dad came to pick me up from my college today in Boston, and as we were walking out to the lot, I saw a cobalt blue Cayman S sitting in the middle, and I said, very ironically, "hey dad, look, it's your dream car!" And so we walked over to it and I'm looking in the window, and I see him standing behind me, holding something. I look back, and he has a set of Porsche keys in his hand. I started SCREAMING!
    "NO WAY!, I DO NOT BELIEVE IT!, OH MY GODDDD!!!, ****KKKKKKKK!!!!!!!"

    We then drove about an hour and a half home, but it felt like 5 minutes. We pulled off into a gas station on the side of the highway, and he gets out and says "your turn". I got all excited, and got to drive almost the whole way home!!!! I can say, from first person, I can't think of a more driver oriented car that I've ever been in. It's incredible, and their aren't any words to describe it.






    Anyone doubting me? Would some pictures do the trick?






    OKAY!














    I'm in love!!!

    Congrats. Cobalt suits the car very well.

    Re: Dad got a Cayman S!

    Congrats!

    I drove it for the first time this week, so I uderstand how you feel. It's one hell of a car.

    I got out of the boxster 2.7l thinking it was underpowered and a tiny bit disppointed. The cayman S on the other hand is a real porsche.

    Now you can have all the college girls you want

    Re: Dad got a Cayman S!

    Thanks guys! I definitely think that cobalt blue fits the car the best. However, '07 is supposedly the last year they'll be making that color!

    Re: Dad got a Cayman S!

    Wow andy! Wish my dad had suprises like that for me every now and then. Unfortunately,my dad does not give a thing about cars, and is very weary of german ones... he likes french cars better

    Congratulations to you and your dad. If you are correct about Cobalt then I'm just glad I got my Boxster in that colour when I did - it looks great. BTW, what spec is the Cayman?

    Hope you both have many exciting and safe times. Enjoy!

    Tell him that there are 3 good things about French cars:
    1) - They are comfortable
    2) - They are comfortable
    3) - They are comfortable

    You forgot another good feature of French cars - spares are easy and cheap - just follow one down a bumpy road

    Re: Dad got a Cayman S!

    Yes you are right! I hadn't looked at it from that perspective.

    Re: Dad got a Cayman S!

    When my Dad bought his Boxster, he pulled an even more elaborate stunt. I had been pushing him to get one and the dealer had the perfect model, spec'd exactly like he wanted.

    Anyways, it looked like he was going to let it pass, when one day he got me in the car to "run some errands" and continued to drive us down to the Porsche dealer under some guise of the salesman calling about a different model.

    When we arrive, the Boxster was parked literally outside the door of the dealer. I was chiding my Dad about how good it looked. As soon as the salesman walked outside with the keys and a big smirk, I got the joke and my jaw dropped. Not only had Dad bought the car, but both he and the salesman were in on it. They both got a big laugh.

    Those are the rare moments in life that really remind you to have as much fun and mischief as possible.

    Since, my Dad and I have taken a few road trips in that car. It's a great bonding tool. I hope you'll do the same with your dad.

    Re: Dad got a Cayman S!

    ^ That's definitely true! Every time I tell that story to someone the get a laugh!

    I dunno, I don't want to ruin the picture!


    Apparently my friend took a picture of me that night when we got it. Not terribly photogenic picture of me, but you asked for it!!!




    Re: Dad got a Cayman S!

    My dad would love a new Porsche but is dead stingy and keeps hinting I should buy it for him - he will pay for it in the end but just won't sign the check. My mum always asks me what i am getting next but as soon as my old man mentions cars she freaks out and says " save your money and stop being childish", poor bastard : ) Guess he had more cars out of Stuttgart than i ever will anyways

    Re: Dad got a Cayman S!

    Good looking P-car! I hope you get to enjoy it as much as your dad gets too!
