I can see that someone's already answered the want ad for henchmen

I believe the locations were Minneapolis, Long Island, Tampa, somewhere in Texas and one other, LA maybe. You also get a discount code for use at the driving school in Birmingham, Atlanta and soon to be LA. It really was a good opportunity to drive a car that I would consider buying, although the one I have put serious consideration into, was one I did not get to drive and that was the Panamera. Will likely schedule a test drive soon.

Sounds like a modified version of what they used to call the Porsche World Roadshow.  Glad you enjoyed it.  When I did the Road show it was fun.  I'm glad I got to do it a few times, but if it had been a significant distance from me I wouldn't have bothered.

At least in the past you either have to get an invite, or know someone with passes.  Then you sign up, and if you make the cut (they get more people who want to go than they can accommodate), then you get notified of the date and time to appear.  They have info about the current program on line.

The fact that they have photos of GT3 RS's doesn't mean anything.  They always have a few display cars, that no one gets to drive.  When I went last year they had Cayman GT4s, that you could sit in, but no one could drive them.  The cars you get to drive are the standard production cars, not the limited production models.

They have changed just a wee bit since then. ;)


Easier to drive faster, more creature comforts, etc. If your memory of the old 911 serves you well, then driving a newer car will also allow you to realize just how nimble a real lightweight car is. My GT3 feels like a heavyweight compared to my old 914-6. Mind you, I don't smell like burning oil when I drive the newer car. lol!

I still remember test driving a 981 Cayman S with PDK two years ago. Great, great car.

I prefer it to the 911s.

Uh oh. I will say it is an absolute blast of a car. My best friend has one in Rhodium Silver Metallic. It's a go-kart for adults, probably only bettered by the GT4 (hey HRoi) and the Lotus Exige S.

The GT4 isn't doing it for you? tongue.gif
post #23532 of 26371
no, lol. the GT4 is a keeper. i had a PDK Cayman S that i loved, but was a placeholder for the GT4.

it was a lease but i could have bought it out and sold to our friend here. sport chrono, premium plus, bose, PDLS, PDK if i remember correctly. buyout was in the mid-50's and i think i put 10k miles on it

Gah, engine light on again this morning. Let this be a lesson people. Never let anyone near your car in exchange for money. Dealers know jack all. . . cloud.gif

The Cayman has a fantastic chassis!
