So I finally got my Porsche Cayman S after waiting 8 months

So I finally got my baby car. I have to say it is a beautiful car but it is also the most unpractical vehicle ever. I can't fit much but it is a blast to drive. The loan process was a bit disappointing. I honestly thought I would have gotten a better rate than what I got. I got an Apr of 3.89% from US Bank. BOA, whom I have nearly 750K in varies accounts, tried giving me 4.25%. I thought I had good scores (760 thru 770 in all credit bur.) Oh well here is my new toy.

Nice. I'm pretty sure my next car will be a cayman, though my wife is telling me I'll be buying her a Lexus NX.

Sadly, you may be right. My window of opportunity passed when I left my last job. I should have pulled the trigger before leaving. While my intent is to buy a cayman by the end of the year, my wife got an extended NX test drive while one of my Lexus was being serviced. Now I don't go a day without hearing about it.

@FeeBear A beautiful vehicle for sure.  I love the color.  I can only imagine how much fun it is to tool around in it.  Glad it worked out and with your scores, you should be able to refi for a better rate in the future.  But for now...enjoy it...and I'm sure you and the spring time weather are going to be really good friends.
