Default Back in a Porsche - '11 Boxster

It's been 10 years since I sold my first Porsche (ill-tempered 944 S2), but I picked up a new-to-me 2011 base Boxster with PDK last weekend. Here are a couple of pics for grins.

It's definitely not a pristine garage queen, but it's generally well cared for, has good service records, and drives very well for 65K miles. I washed it when I got it home, applied a little quick detailer mist to get rid of a bunch of water spots, and it looks pretty good.

I've always had a manual transmission fun car, but I got the PDK this time, as my wife had some interest in driving the car. The only modifications on the car are a Fabspeed exhaust and a Pioneer NAV head unit. It might see an auto-x, and maybe a track day, but the intended mission is just a fun, top-down cruiser.

Nice get. I also got the PDK for the wife and she has driven it twice in 2 years. That being said with the sports exhaust and Sport plus it sounds like a formula one car going through the gears.

Got PDK for the wife and she's never even sat in the driver's seat in 2 years! On the other hand, I haven't missed a shift, either...
