Lifetime dream realised

Didn't think life could get much better in July 2012 when I took delivery of my first Porsche a cracking Boxster s mint condition ticked all the boxes and put a huge grin on my face,earlier this year had a brand new cayman s out on 24 hour demo from Lancaster Colchester hated it for 10 minutes till I found my way round the gearbox (es) then my god did the world light up unfortunately couldn't afford 62000 so back she had to go, but it got me thinking and two days ago I realised my dream purchased my first 911 a stunning black convertible with full history,not a mark inside or out, so at the moment I have gone from nil Porsche 15 months ago to 2 Porsches today hehe how extravagant! Think I've really joined the club now, still loving my Boxster but she has to go as I only have room for one toy on the drive, very happy boy!!!! :)
Fantastic stuff. Keep both :thumbs:
I went to the local tyre place the other day for a battery check after the 911 wouldn't start following the cold weather.

As I pulled up there was one of the guys all over the car loving it. 'This is my dream car' he said.

My reply...'It used to be mine, i'll tell you after I get the bill if it still is'


Weirdly it passed the battery test so something must be draining the battery pretty quickly (circa 5 days). I have a solution though, I will simply drive it more often and not worry about it.

So in short its still my dream car :worship:
...so what model 911 Carrera did you buy?.....pics would be good.....but anyway whatever the car.....congrats.....enjoy
ah in my excitement i forgot the all important figures i bought a 996 convertible, had to think long and hard whether a convertible or coupe but this ticked all the other boxes so it just 'felt right' up till now my 'felt right' has never let me down and after crawling underneath this one and checking all warned about bits it had to be, so 11th october cant come soon enough, :)
