Congrats twin brother Steve!
Now our Porsche family is whole again with your RY and my GR 991 coupes. Yes, 50 years have flown by, and Porsche adventures continue to this day.
Wishing you many miles and smiles, enjoy the ride!

Have owned 22 previous Porsche's since my first Polo Red/Black 912 in 1967! Have shared a few of these with twin brother Steve, who is also close to pulling the trigger on a Racing Yellow Coupe.

Hennessy was great to deal with, sales associate Haylee Kerry was a pleasure to work with, a Porsche gal, and a real pro.

Car specs are 2013,Base Coupe, CPO through May 2019, GR/Black, MT, PSE, Sport Chrono, SPASM, PTV, PDLS, Premium Package, Bose, 20" satin black sport wheels.

Now on th a few mods....to make it mine!

About to come home with me!

Think it's been about 6 or 7 more shared P cars and a bunch of individual cars as well. We should write a book!

Anyway, I hope to join you and the other faithful 991 owners very soon. PPI and finalization on my HFS is scheduled for later this coming week. Stay tuned.....

Meanwhile, enjoy your latest greatest Porsche!

Steve and Frank

What an incredible story and great friendship and bond both you brothers have. Wow.

Honored that you've shared your story with us.

You guys bought your first Porsche 3 years before I was even born!!

Congratulations guys! Great car Steve. Porsches must be great - the damp Pacific Northwest didn't rust anything! Enjoy the ride!

Steve and Frank have yellow and red 911's. Someone else in the family needs to buy a PTS Green to fill out the signal light!

http://rennlist.com/forums/vehicle-m...o-pse-etc.html

Sad situation and I had just bought my 2007 997.1 Cobalt Blue Aerokit S Coupe. But damn, I liked that car, and I have always loved yellow cars!

Then in January of this year (after the 997 and a nice Cayman S), I decided I wanted back in a 911, specifically an S Coupe, less than 20K miles, with PSE, SC, SPASM, (Ideally a manual), and some lux features. Also, per the boss's desires, no silver, gray, black exteriors. So the hunt was on!

Searching RL classifieds, PCA, Autotrader, ebay, cars.com, PCNA SearchAgent, and others, I found tons of cars, but not many that hit the ideal sweet spot. But then, back in a listing from August 2016, look what I found!

http://rennlist.com/forums/vehicle-m...carrera-s.html

Now it was available again, and I was ready! emails and calls ensued, due diligence with servicing dealer and independent shop, and decision was made to use FF and hotel points to do a 36 hour whirlwind trip from Florida to the Seattle area to inspect, test drive (60 miles, and even with PDK I was hooked), and do a PPI. On 1-2 March, that happened and the result was a GO!

Arranged shipping with Reliable and I could not have been happier with how they handled things. Expensive yes, but first class all the way, no issues, "one on, one off" loading and delivery on the exact day they promised. Tried InterCity, but they don't do the NW to SE diagonal run.

So today, I detailed her (not much needed, she was pretty much perfect off the truck), and my wife and I celebrated our new arrival (our 23rd Porsche in 50 years as of this June) with a lovely spring drive and dinner in our local community of Fernandina Beach. What a great start to our next adventure with Porsche, PCA, and the wonderful community of Porsche people.

Here are some pics.
Steve : Mine came from Seattle, also with a rear wiper! So happy for you.
