Picking it up tomorrow! Now to debate how much to put down.... Thinking probably $45k...probably a good enough compromise between buying it outright and paying interest on an $80k loan.

what the christ

this stuff isn't all hammered out before they build the effing thing?

what happens when someone like you decides he shouldn't have requested a bubblegum pink w/ yellow stitched interior?

<edit> even if you're limited to porsche's option boxes you could probably make a car that'd be pretty tough to sell to somebody else at full price

With some of the porsche options/combinations you can create a car that could only be sold in a wealthy arab oil nation...

I think if they don't sell they just put them up for wholesale between dealers and shuffle them around until they match the car with the person who has the lack of taste to want it.

I don't know what you mean...obviously the amount is all hammered out, but how much I feel like putting down on the car isn't. I had to give them a deposit, which was non-refundable. So, if the car showed up and I hated it, I'd be losing that. In my case, I just pre-traded my RX-8 -- it was leaking oil all over my driveway anyway, so I didn't exactly feel like fixing that just to trade it in. I borrowed a car from family for the three bloody months it took for it to come in.

Anyway -- it's rainy and dark here, so I pulled her in my garage and took the shittiest cell phone pics ever. But, there's not a ton of light in there, and my lawn tractor was still in the stall next to her because the fucker won't start to move it into my other garage; dead battery.

Pics:





Exterior is Dark Blue Metallic, interior is full leather Amber/Agate and I added an option to deviate the carpet in Agate. However, it didn't deviate all of it, like I thought it may. However, I think the areas they chose to deviate were enough to tone down the floor, and the areas that will easily soil are darker, so that's a plus. I like it, but it may not have been worth the $500 cost of entry. I probably could have lived without it.

Either way, I think it came out nice. I love the darker wheels on it, and I think the brighter interior really pops! Was $81k out the door taxes/tags/etc. They gave me a pretty shitty loan rate (2.7% for 5 years), so I'll be immediately fixing that, my bank will give me < 2.3% for being a Platinum member, so....

Anyway, first drive was boring. Rain, traffic, bleh! I spent more time fucking with the radio than driving it. But, the PDK transmission is pretty well behaved in traffic, so that was nice. Hopefully the weather clears up a bit so I can play a little more tomorrow -- we'll see.
