    Does anyone know the weight saving from having the Carbon Roof?

    I assume same as GT3, which is 1 kg (but more weight saving if you were otherwise going to get sunroof)

    So most of the weight savings is to the wallet.

    GTS

     


    Re: OFFICIAL: The new Porsche 992 – a design icon and high-tech sports car

    I’m interested in a GTS, but this is not a very enthusiastic review.  I’d like a more specific comparison to the 992 Carrera S or 4S. Any thoughts, folks?


    Re: OFFICIAL: The new Porsche 992 – a design icon and high-tech sports car

    I think it will be the perfect balance between a S and a GT3 - not needing to rev the heck out in order to get power - the 2300-5000 rpm max torque jointly with the 8 speed - Turbo brakes front - and helper springs back will make it the sweet spot for all weather driving 


    Re: OFFICIAL: The new Porsche 992 – a design icon and high-tech sports car

    Pity the visual changes are not that pretty. A regular S looks better IMO.

    Agree, but then pretty is not something I associate with the 992 in the first place. The 992 Touring perhaps yes, just...

    Hmm, there isn't any difference externally outside of the badging.

    The GTS simply offers the optional Sports Design option and the Sport Exhaust option as standard.

    …do not forget about the insane power upgrade…Smiley…sarcasm aside, l simply like the GTS concept with the interior design etc…as in my GTS…7 years old, still looks kind of „fresh“…Smiley


    Re: OFFICIAL: The new Porsche 992 – a design icon and high-tech sports car

    The bigger brakes from the Turbo offered as standard, are a good upgrade.

    I don't know how much difference the helper springs on the rear axle, make; also taken from the Turbo.

    Fake ? What‘s the big deal ??? Youtubers and so on get invited and receive their media package for them to use - since l will be in Franciacorta this weekend, l looked at several videos on the GTS intro and they all mix their content to their liking. Smiley With the turbo breaks, Porsche offers a nice upgrade to the S, though Smiley


    Re: OFFICIAL: The new Porsche 992 – a design icon and high-tech sports car

    Is GTS suspension lower than sport suspension on the S?

    I know. I think that combo of options with the dark wheels looks good.

    Re: OFFICIAL: The new Porsche 992 – a design icon and high-tech sports car

    Yeah. Porsche had experimented with that in the Exclusive cab. Now they put it on the 992. Black with silver/grey strips.
