Trying to decide on either a 991 gts or turbo, I love the gts in either Miami or Carmine and to me looks the better of the two cars but a turbos a turbo at the end of the day.

I personally like the sound of the sports exhaust on the gts but the turbo just doesn’t sound so good , I’ve been told I can buy this and buy that exhaust upgrade for the turbo so can’t decide but also the colours available for the turbo are bland grey,white,black unless I go for a new one.

What’s your opinion on depreciation as it seems the 2015 3.8 s are holding their value well ?

No brainer. Turbo. It can do everything the GTS can. And then some.

Hmm, quite close I’d say. The turbo’s hold up ok against the GTS market wise.

The driving experience is so significantly different that it is probably best that you get a test drive in each to see which one gives you the most smiles.

Good luck in your search. Laughing

Hope the Turbo has a stereo, you will need something to listen to whilst test driving Wink

Simply change out the stock exhaust for a Kline Innovations inconel unit ...a big improvement and let’s remember exactly why the Turbo is quieter than the n.a. Cars.... it’s busy making all those extra ponies to give it the ‘Warp power, Captain !!! ‘

Sometimes the Turbo is so quick , you are watching the horizon approaching so fast that even listening to the stereo doesn’t drown out the ‘ OMFG’ sounds that are going on in my head not sure if I uttered them or not !!!

I don’t concur with GTS values holding up the same as the Turbo ... a good Turbo will always be worth more , even in relative terms ....’not for nothing’ is it the top of the tree .......

I do like the GTS though ...nothing against it at all , particularly in Carrara white with black wheels!
( wasn’t there a member on here a while back that had the stoneguards in Black too ?? It was sweet!)

If you want the exhaust rasp without a doubt the 991.1 GTS is the place to go.

As for Turbo vs GTS there are an awful lot of posts from people on Forum's who work their way up through the 911 line and ultiamtely buy a Turbo and regret it. For some people it's just too capable and a little uninvolving...partly because of the engine and I suspect partly because it's 4wd.

There are also plenty of people who love the Turbo. Ultimate daily driver bar none.

So really you need to try cars but there is always the halfway house of the 991.2 GTS which owners love...it's a turbo engine obviously but also can be had with 2wd...lots of people have traded in 991.1 GTS for them and absolutely love it.
