Hi All

I’ve been away for about a year but just bought this GTS.

Sold my Cayman S last year after owning it for 3 years. Was not doing enough miles I thought. Sold it to my best friend who then spent the last year telling me how great it was. So really regretted selling.

Went on the search for a replacement. Looked at the 718. Tried one but just could not go past the 3.4 981.

Went to see a couple up here in Scotland at dealers. One was terrible, second was brilliant and high spec but miles overpriced. Hence why dealer still has it months on.

Finally found this one in a private deal. Just serviced, still has a years Porsche warranty, all the paperwork and under 15000 miles.

I think it looks really well but looking forward to giving it a full detail to get it to MY standard!!!

Great to be back, and I’m not selling this one! Thumb

Nice car Thumb Although I am slightly biased as picked up a race yellow Cayman GTS back in May.

Is yours manual or PDK? PASM or X73?

Thanks guys

Never though I would buy one on a private deal, but difficult to get a good one as you know and previous owner was spot on.

No plans to do any mods other than that expensive fuel cap (alloy style one) which no one sees except me Smile

Will give it a detail top to bottom, Then get out and drive it. Thumb

Krispe it’s the Pdk this time which is what I wanted. Had a manual S before.

I like the spoiler down too

Well done.
Fantastic cars.
Did the Porsche driving experience yesterday in the 718 gts. Loved the day in every way and 718 was great.
BUT
Would not swap it for my 981😁😁😁😁😁
