Default When I was a senior in college...

...Porsche came out with the 964 Carrera 2 Targa. My favorite color was Black and swore I would own one quickly. Almost 30 years later, I finally got my first Porsche.

Stock wheels, interior materials, and steel brakes. Bose, heated 18-ways, FAL, LEDs, light design, dim/rain sensors, 23.7 gal, clock, and silver seatbelts. Full XPEL wrap. Switched immediately to Michelin PS 4S's as it regularly rains here. (I now have a spare stack of new track-day Dunlop Maxx R2's in the garage...)

Still in break-in miles and I can't wait to be able to let the revs climb.

Really like the Touring and being a bit more stealthy...!

Looks great congrats. Look forward to seeing it in person since I’ In your neck of the woods, just a few miles south in Loudon County. One thing for sure, many nice curvy roads around here.
Enjoy your ride.

That's great congratulations! I am envious of the scenic roads you have around there. I also tried to keep it stealth and went with GT silver, but I wasn't as committed to keep it below radar and went with the winged version It's my first Porsche too, unless it starts giving me trouble or unforeseen circumstances, I hope to keep it for 10 years or more. Even after 1 year of ownership, I still peak in the garage to glance at it!

In my senior year, the 2011 GT3RS 4.0 came out. I was certain I'd be able to pick one up CPO in a few years, for maybe 70-80 grand.

Maybe in 30 years, I'll be able to afford one
