Well-I've made the call-new Turbo on the way!

After test driving both a 2017 Turbo S and a 2018 Turbo, I've made the decision. The mainstay GTS will make way for the future. 2018 Turbo build below. I'm very excited about this. I felt I didn't need a Turbo S, nor did I want the additional financial burden with a new home happening in the next couple years. I'm OK with the regular brakes and I happen to like the base design 5-lug wheels. I did step up in a few other areas...see below. Delivery set to be sometime in June.

For me with an AWD car with more mass, I felt PDCC would be a good-to-have. I loved the feature on my 991.1 S. And after having Bose in so many Carreras, I felt that the Burmester needs to be a worthy step up. It was that or the Centerlock wheels and for me, while my GTS has them and I do love the look, it doesn't really add any measureable performance gain.

I like the look of the Sport Tex and silver stitching, and with that setup, it's zero added cost. I also added leather interior trim because I like the look in black or agate gray and for me, carbon trim is nice but again doesn't add performance. Same goes for headrest crests, illuminated door sills, rear wiper, etc. so I passed on all that stuff. I like the black theme on graphite blue. I'm looking forward to it.

I can’t decide between the 991.2 turboS or a 4GTS. What made you decide Turbo vs GTS?

Hey George M, well I drove a new GTS, a 4GTS Cab, Turbo, and Turbo S. To me the actual 3.8 Turbo is an absolute hammer and is just spectacular to drive. The 4GTS I drove was awesome too, but for me it made more sense to not downsize engine and instead go 3.8 Turbo, with the even wider body, bigger brakes, and that awesome wing in the back!
