Jonttt will tell you you're going to do your dough on this buying brand new AND a 718 rather than the 6cyl 981 Rolling Eyes

Looks a good spec but I'd add adaptive cruise given our traffic congestion you'll be knocking ordinary cruise off and on all the time. what

I take it the GTS has the PASM option as standard with the small dial for adjustment on the steering wheel and sports exhaust Dont know

Spec looks spot on Thumb

And it will be one of the first batches, there are a few already at dealers but most seem to be waiting to march to take delivery.

How exciting.

Ps ignore Zingari, we have already established that you prefer a turbo power delivery Thumb

They have much more presence on the road compared to any Audi short of an R8 and the 981/781 shape always gets the “right” type of attention in my experience.

Looking forward to seeing the actual pics Wink

This has been a great thread and good to see you make the right decision over an Audi Grin

Yes I will update the thread as I first time Porsche owner and yes it does not sound like a pure Porsche but that does not matter that much after some miles I will open her out and only then know how it all comes together.

Cheers

So it's been 5 weeks, 400 miles on it. A few times in S and S+ modes lately.

I think any RWD sports car gives you feedback and this car is great for that you know the limits.

When you drive it in normal mode gearbox is seamless. But in S or S+ compared to the TTRS S-TRONIC gearbox the Audi has a very slight better seamless performance.

Both cars rate of acceleration seems constant from a 3000 rpm. Given the 718 is RWD the torque must be better to compare to. AWD.

The sound is better than the 718 S but not by much. I would like at som point to put a Amrytrix exhaust. They inform me that it's the same unit, socgivn Prosche have improved the sound in the GTS compared to the S not sure I will see a big change.

Krish
