Road trip - Porsche 718 Cayman.


We ordered a new Porsche Cayman in early August, 2017. It takes about 14 weeks to build a Porsche and we picked the car up November 28th. We decided to have the car delivered to the Porsche Experience Center (PEC) in Atlanta, Georgia. If Porsche customers pick up their new car at PEC, they are entitled to a partial day of high-performance driver training on the road racing course and skid pads at PEC. Since I'm already a racer and instructor, I shared the school with Linda. She had a great time spinning the yellow school car (there is a composite photo of one of her spins in the link below). They also provide a free lunch, a tour of the on-site Porsche museum and a facility tour. There is also a "delivery reveal" which is sort of theatrical but great fun.

The PEC delivery also allowed us an "excuse" for a "road trip vacation" where we could visit a number of places we had not seen before. During the road trip home, along with Atlanta, we visited Savannah, GA, Beaufort, SC, Charleston, SC, Myrtle Beach, SC, Wilmington, NC, Wrightsville Beach, NC and various areas on the NC Outer Banks including Kill Devil Hill, Nags Head and Kitty Hawk. I knew from previous trips that there were heavy bugs on some areas. In one of the photos below you can also see the "no-see-um" bugs stuck to the front of our new car.

On the second-to-last day of this trip, Linda tripped and broke her wrist in North Carolina. The trip was great but this wasn't exactly how we planned to end it. The good news is that the break was "clean" and non-displaced so she healed in less than 8 weeks. Link to some photos below.
