Been reading all the posts on here for several weeks and decided to finally write something. Picking up a gts in a couple of days and so f...ing excited. The mrs is not interested in listening to me but guess I have found some fellow Porsche lovers here!. Have been driving these cars for the last 12 years and I have enjoyed each and every mile I have driven in all of them. I am not thinking of any financial loss and just looking forward to getting out into the country and letting the sound of that uprated engine and PSE put a large smile on my face. The aesthetics and specification of the GTS is superb. Anyway, hello to you all and look forward to reading all your posts.will post some pics later in the week once I decide to get out of it.

...Take it from someone who knows...centre lock wheels are a nightmare,

After 4 black cars had no choice but to go for the exact opposite
Spec is carrera White with leather/alcantara
VTS Tracker
Windscreen with top tint
Rear seats
Universal audio interface
BOSE Surround sound system
Telephone module
Extended navigation module
Heated seats
Sport chrono package plus
Auto dimming mirror
Parkassist
PDK gearbox
Sports seats back rests in exterior colour
Rear section of centre console in exterior colour

I know it's the colour of the moment but it looks great in White. If I get bored I can always wrap it!

Well, I went and picked it up with him today. Magnificent! He's a happy boy!

Amazing how someone can grin solidly for 2 1/2 hours driving. Good man.

I wish my comrade many thousands of GTS happiness!

Ordered mine. I knew they would be prepared to do a deal with the 998 on the way. I worked out the cost of a low spec car and they very much wanted me to take an existing car instead of placing a new order on the factory. As this was pre ordered it had a very high spec which I insisted I did not want and eventually got the extras for free. £10K!!!!

Sports Chrono, extended nav, leather, heated seats, telephone module, audio interface, park assist, metallic,cruise control, multi function wheel. all free

plus 2 K uplift on my 997 trade in.

They are scared of having stock left so go in now before they run out of pre built cars.




Is it a PDK?

If so, keep the mileage sensible and I'll give you £30k cash in 2016.

Mr. Green



Offer transferred to Mr SimonC as PDK is a must have.

I had a 24 hr test drive in the GTS pdk + a blast round Silverstone in one

Great car and I was tempted for a brief moment but with 996 Turbo S + a 9934S can't justify it

But give me two years and the search will be on for one

followed a white GTS up the A3 today about lunchtime, cool ride - smooth and pretty quick. I was on the white Fireblade if it was anyone here.

Its also ideal car for me, yes i could of got a GT3 but with 2 young children, it puts smiles on their faces as well as mine when we go to school Floor Floor

Need to put more miles on it so I can give it a good blast.

Jose, know how you feel. Done 650 miles now and can't wait to be able to drive it properly. If you have kids then there is no substitute! Took my son and his friend out at the weekend and when they got out, I knew Porsche had buyers for the future! Enjoy Smile

Hey 911D, good to chat the other week and I'm glad that you decided to go for it. I look forward to seeing it at a future meet.

How long do you have to wait and what's the spec?

Its being built around mid April with delivery due end April / early May. Spec as follows:

Carrera white, and manual (total must have for me!) Thumb
Extended Nav
Audio interface
Leather interior (alcantara gets sticky IMO)
Red seat belts
Park assist
Sunroof
Heated seats
Tyre pressure monitor
Centre lock wheels
Illuminated door sills (the Mrs liked them)

Can't wait Very Happy - just need to find someone to take the Boxster S (mint condition with 17k on the clock so I'm hoping won't be too hard to shift)
