    Great shots, it is perfect in white! Instant classic 911.

    indeed shifting is ancient technology - so is a fuel burning engine..  I happen to like both :) 


    Re: GTS Candid pics

    pure 911

    Hi Nick - Yes you're right, I went last night.. (report of the event on separate "Porsche Racing Legends" thread)

    As far as the GTS is concerned I must admit to being disappointed that the featured car was in Guards Red and not Carrara White.Smiley

    Red does nothing for me these days and the GTS looked somewhat ordinary in that colour.  It's also fair to say that it was probably 'put in the shade' a bit by the multi-million pounds worth of machinery displayed around it!

    It looks okay, but I was honestly expecting more.  I think (hope) it will be a whole new ball-game when it arrives in white..Smiley

    The interior is superb, paddles on sport-design steering wheel and all.  It was in leather (no alcantara) and felt just perfect...so glad I ordered mine that way.  It also had sport-bucket seats which again I'm glad I didn't order.  I found them very hard to sit on and the shape made getting out of the car a real chore (maybe I'm showing my age again!)

    They showed me my official order sheet on the factory computer with order number and comm number.. so everything's in place for an early delivery.

    Re: GTS Candid pics

    John, thanks a lot for the pictures!

    You are right, red is not the most fitting color for the GTS.

    one thing i havent got verified yet is the color of the central locks: with the GTS they seem to be grey, but on the GT2RS they are black.

    Which would you preffer?

    Also very interested in a more detailed report!

    Nick - what more detail do you want.  I couldn't drive the car... I couldn't even start it up.  There's a limit to what I can tell you when it's just sitting there!

    Except I didn't like it in red, but sitting in it felt very good apart from the bucket seats....Smiley

    bucket seats are out of place in the gts.

    they are damn comfortable nevertheless....

    Re: GTS Candid pics

    If I recall correctly, Porsche-Jeck has similar seats in his 997.1 GT3. I sat in the front passenger seat a few times during visits to the Nordschleife. Once seated in the seat, it was perfectly comfortable. It holds your body firmly in place on the track - and on a track, I would really want seats like that - but personally I didn't find it easy to get into or to get out of so, for use on a daily driver, it just wasn't 'effortless' for me. Basically, if you are a little overweight (like me ), then it's less than easy.

    Also, if you fit a safety harness, then that's one more thing to handle when getting in or out. If you get in the seat and inadvertently sit on any of the belts or the buckle of the safety harness, it can be a little awkward trying to lift your body up enough to get the belt or buckle out from under your body. Slim or petite people won't find this an issue. Larger sized people will find it cumbersome until they get used to it.

    If I were ordering a GT3, I would feel like choosing these seats but my head would advise me against it. Still, that's just me. Everyone's size, fitness and preferences are different

    Re: GTS Candid pics

    Great shots Gents!

    Stupid question here:

    A while back (3 or 4 years) I was told by a dealer (I know, I know) that the 997.1 GT3 RS had the wide body rear end.

    Recently watch a video here where a Porsche official pointed out that the GTS was the only RWD 911 with the wide body.

    I know this is considered meaningless to some on here; but who is right??


    Re: GTS Candid pics

    IMO the way you reconcile both statements is by saying that the GTS is the only RWD non-GT 997 with a wide body.

    Or the only RWD Carrera model with wide body.

    So many variations that even Porsche officials get confused!

    Re: GTS Candid pics

    The price for the GTS Cab here, is exactly the same I payed for my car 14 months ago, and I don´t have wide body and 408hp to play with Smiley.

    Hope they can make a 991GTS slightly after the launch, but I guess we wont see it soon.

    Hi John, don't worry - as long as you feel young at heart your body will follow your mind (not the other way round...) Smiley Even my 77 y/o father made it and he rejected any help (what will the Ladies think ? That I'm an old man ? Smiley)
    Unless you suffer a serious back condition, it only needs a bit exercise to make yourself familiar with getting into (and more so) out of the bucket seats. The heavenly ergonomy once you sit in the car compensates for the little extra effort. It's like Easy described it: - yes, not effortless (compared to the standard / sport seats) but very rewarding when you switch to "fun mode" when driving Smiley And you don't need to track the car to enjoy the reward - any winding country road will do the same. If I'd (ab-) use my Porsche primarily as a city car going to the bakery....(God forbid) I wouldn't get the bucket seats though.....but in this case I wouldn't get a Porsche in the first place Smiley

    I'm sure you will love the GTS, John -  every little bit of it, including the seats Smiley

    Exactly Smiley Once seated in the seat, it's a great feeling Smiley

    And yes, I forgot to mention that the benefits are gained in spirited driving on twisty roads as well - and not just on the track Smiley

    Re: GTS Candid pics

    I sat in a GT2RS recently with these seats and have to admit they are terriffic. But for daily driving (geting in/out very often, sometimes with a suit and so on) they are too hardcore for me. And there is no possibility of heated seats, which is sometimes pretty usefull. so i went with the adaptive seats that offer a very good compormise between sport and comfort.

     


    Re: GTS Candid pics

    Good all-round choice: heated adaptive sports seats  I have them too

    Hi Achim - thanks for that.  I have a left knee injury, resulting from a motorcycle accident when I was 17, which is one of the reasons I've chosen PDK over manual.  The knee is also my main problem when trying to extricate myself from bucket seats. Smiley

    Like Nick, I've gone for the heated adaptive sports seats I'm familiar with... and yes, I think I'm going to love this car....Smiley
