Congratulations, iiAtlas! She is hot! The color almost looks black on the monitor. Love the two-tone interior. That's one of the regrets I have with mine, of not adding some color to otherwise all-stark black. After you break it in, let it rip and write up a review. Looks pretty compact and tidy.

Thanks the_rider!! Yes it is quite a dynamic color...I am very excited to compare it to an incoming X5 we have in Carbon Black Metallic, another incredibly dynamic blue/black. Will post pics when that arrives at the end of this month. The two-tone is just the splash of color I was looking for. Am sure your car is just stunning without it, so don't worry too much

Appreciate the kind words! I am heading the break in best I can....at least the city driving is helping to vary the revs

Congratulations. Car looks great! Can’t wait for mine to arrive in a 2-3 months. I just joined this site, looking forward to learning from others. This will be my first Porsche too

And congrats on the C-172. My dad had a C-206 and later a C-210. We used to take family vacations in it all the time. I miss the 210. Now I fly for a living, but miss General Aviation flying

Hey Guaji congrats!!! That will be a long wait I am sure..but so so worth it. They are spectacular cars!! The 210 is some family hauling machine...I am sure you have great memories. Nice to see you "carrying the (aviation) torch"

Hopefully the Cayman I ordered arrives in early April, even a week or two earlier would be nice. In the meantime, I am watching alot of videos on Youtube and the owners manual on the Porsche website.

I have alot of time in the “Skyhawk”/ C-172 as an instructor. The C-206 was like a lil pick-up truck, capable of carrying more than the 210.....just slower.

Question: Does your front license plate have to be mounted off center like that?

NY State requires a font plate but I didn't want to drill in to the front bumber, Rho Plate to the rescue! https://www.rho-plate.com/

Very high quality product I was incredibly impressed with how it was package, shipped, and installed. It is all billet aluminum and attaches where the tow hook would. Two thumbs up!

CT requires a front license plate as well. So when you purchase a new 718, it doesn't come with a front license plate holder or pre-drilled holes to put one on? Please don't take offense, but I really don't care for the off-center mounting of the license plate. If forced to do it myself I would have to drill holes.
