    Re: 991.2 Carrera 4 GTS

    Yep... was pretty cheeky for a first post. Lol.

    I did drive over the Pyrenees in my first Porsche (a 986 Boxster 2.5 litre) many moons ago. Ever since seeing the 991 R promotion video - the last part of which was filmed in the Col d'Aspin - it has made me want to return to drive it again. Wonderful roads. (You just need to time your visit to avoid bicycle rush hours).

    Anyways. Hello everyone on the forums.

    don't you miss your GT4? i mean, honestly.....

    pmarkow:

    don't you miss your GT4? i mean, honestly.....

    The GT4 and the GTS cannot be compared. They are too different.

    How many modern cars match the mechanical feel and driver involvement of the GT4? Relatively lightweight, manual gearbox, a minimum of gizmos, etc. This would end up to be a very short list of cars.

    The GTS is good at everything. The everyday all-year-round sports car with 2+2 seats which laps the Ring faster than a 991.1 GT3. Beat that Smiley

    Interestingly the perception of speed is inverted. The GT4 felt faster, the GTS is faster. A lot faster. I did a few quick runs in the alps last weekend and in Sport Plus mode the GTS is mental. It builds speed so quickly on the straights and can carry impressively high speed through the corners. Perfectly controlled and stable at all times. I guess the RWS helps a lot.

    Do I miss the GT4? Put it this way, if I would not have the GTS, then probably yes. As it is now, no. Since the two boys arrived priorities have changed. Cars are far down on that priority list. Close to the the section which says "don't really care that much" Smiley

    Last Saturday evening we went to Huus (the old Steigenberger which was rebuilt in 2016). Very nice design and amazing views over the valley. The drinks were great, the food ok and the service sucked.

    That will not last too long, nor should it. Perfectly acceptable to have both.

    Any picture of car seats?, what brand?


    Re: 991.2 Carrera 4 GTS

    I did not get the seats yet, but there are plenty which should fit. I will post pics as soon as I have mine.

    Re: 991.2 Carrera 4 GTS

    Congrats, great choice!

    Drove a 991.2 Carrera 4 GTS over the weekend (Porsche Drive). Tried the regular kids seat but then the twins are very close to the front seat, very claustrophobic for them.. So I used the boosters that we have for travelling. This worked great. Not as safe as full seats, but ok for cruising. We actually got stopped by the police (first time in 15 years in CH) and they checked the kids and complimented how nicely they were strapped in. indecision

    Try this new style booster seat.

    Instead of raising the child with cushions, it lowers the seatbelt to the child's shoulder height. 

    We bought one to use for our current trip here in Orlando.

    Nice! Smiley

    How did you like the GTS?

    The rear seats in the coupe has got more space than the cabriolet. The regular kids seats should be fine *fingers crossed* Smiley

    LOL! The police probably wanted to check out the car Smiley This happened to me two years ago when I drove back to Sweden. I got stopped by the Swedish police after the border. The policeman put his head in through the window and said "very nice car, I have to start saving", then let me drive off Smiley

    Re: 991.2 Carrera 4 GTS

    I just the used the maxy cosy (rear facing) for the first year in my 997.2. Then switched to a Recaro Young Sport, fits perfect (for one, not sure for a twin because it has high side bolsters). When my son grew out of the Recaro, I switched to a BMW X5. No more crap with choosing the right child seats now.
