I’m a two timer times two. I cheated on my “purist” ideals and recently spent a week with a beautiful 2009 Porsche Carrera S – with PDK no less – and a host of other goodies. Now, as I get ready for the spring and prepare to show-off my air-cooled lovers on the dating scene I’m afraid they’ll know of my infidelity. To make matters worse, just as things were heating up with the Carrera S, a 997 Turbo sauntered down the street and parked itself in my garage for a brief stay. Talk about a hot and torrid affair… I’m still cooling down (and so is the Turbo).
Ever since Porsche announced that PDK would finally find its way into production level cars I’ve been waiting
impatiently quietly to try it. Trying a car is more than just a 30 minute jaunt at the local dealer. You need to live with the car, get to know each other, tell each other your deepest and darkest secrets. Well, thanks to Porsche Cars North America, I got my chance. After five days and more than 500 miles (that’s a lot of driving in Southern Florida) I know more than my fair share about what the 997 had to offer and also what she didn’t.
Over the next few weeks, I’ll detail my discoveries, let you know the good, the bad and the ugly (there was a lot of the first, a bit of the second and nothing ugly to speak of) and try my damnedest to put you in the driver’s seat as seen by an ordinary Porsche owner.
If there’s anything specific you want to know, let me know now by commenting below. Otherwise, you’re leaving me on my own and who knows the havoc I might wreak left to my own devices.
Ps. I am so getting a 997 Turbo!!
