I’ve been MIA lately due to a lot of changes in my life, most importantly starting my MBA doing it full-time while working full-time. It takes up a lot of your time during the day (including weekends) therefore most people wouldn’t do this and I would advise against it, but being single with regimented lifestyle makes it easy for me.
I’m going to start a recurring journal on my recent “milestone” present I’ve recently picked up; my new to me Porsche Cayman.
The car search took a few months and surprisingly difficult to find the one that I wanted that met these prerequisites:
- Porsche Cayman or Cayman S (based on price)
- One owner history (max)
- Had an existing factory warranty
- Under 30,000 miles
- Immaculate paint condition
- Immaculate interior condition
- Manual transmission
- Fit my budget (my personal 30% rule)
Most of the local cars in my area (edit: all) were demanding too much money, none were manual, and the Cayman S models with the 3.4L engines were at least $10K more expensive with more miles compared to a base model with the 2.7L engine with a manual transmission.
The only car I could find that met my requirements was in Pittsburgh, PA (Allison Park to be exact), which was four hours from my house.
Anyways, I don’t want to spend to much on the “introduction” blog of the Cayman, but I did find the car that met all my needs.
Stay tuned for more updates.
