2013 Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet Long-Term Road Test

2013 Porsche 911 Carrera: A New Home

April 22, 2014

2013 Porsche 911 Carrera

When we last saw our long-term 2013 Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet, it was being loaded onto a transport truck. The truck driver told us it would take two to four weeks to reach Pittsburgh, its final destination. Now, about four weeks later, the Porsche 911 has finally arrived.

Here's a note from its new owner, Tom:

"The car finally arrived yesterday. After going through Pennsylvania safety inspection and title work, my dealer washed and vacuumed the car and I took possession last evening. I've attached a photo of the car in front of its new garage. It could not be more different from the Porsche I sold last fall (1988 Targa 3.2L manual) but, boy, is it fun to drive. Thanks for your patience and help with this transaction. If you ever find yourself in Pittsburgh, I'm good for a beer."

I may just take him up on that beer one of these days. We all wish Tom well and hope he loves the car as much as we did.
