    Habemus... 991 GTS

    Finally, after what seemed a very long wait, I was able to pick it up from the dealer today. Didn't get a chance do drive it much except for the 30 min drive back home yet the smirk on my face have not worn off yet Smiley ... the sound is amazing, the looks, every detail from the little blackened bits to the red stitching with black alcantara... tomorrow first thing in the morning I will hit the mountains for a drive, but for now I snapped these pictures just before it got dark

    Re: Habemus... 991 GTS

    Carlos, I know all your cars are keepers.... at least compared to many owners on this board..... but I think this will truly be a classic.  Now you just have to do some brain rewiring to train those left and right fingers to do your bidding and get the max out of PDK.  Cheers!

    The 991 GTS would really be our ideal Porsche - with the right seats for SWMBO of course!

    Re: Habemus... 991 GTS

    Fantastic color, but keep it out of the sun. In my neighbourhood there is a Jaguar F type in red and you can already see the color fading on some panels. Red is very sensitive.

    Re: Habemus... 991 GTS

    Thank you guys!!Smiley

    Just came back from a short drive on a mountain road, was with the window down playing like a kid with the PDK downshifts and changes in combination with the GTS exhaust sound, what a combination! no .... so much so that don't know if it was the novelty and it will wear off in time or not, but did not get that feeling of "wish I had a manual" that I got when driving the other 991 models I tested. The sharper steering, paddles, and sound of the exhaust made a big difference.

    A stunning car. Congrats.

    Re: Habemus... 991 GTS

    Congrats

    Red / Black combo is unbeatable kiss w/Black wheels of course smiley

    Let us know how you feel now that you've switched to PDK for the first time ever. You'll gain few lbs and become a bit lazy too, but will be driving her around more with less effort and sweat


    Re: Habemus... 991 GTS

    Congrats! Keep the reports coming

    Re: Habemus... 991 GTS

    Thanks guys!! wink

    Relieved I didn't get the S-PASM-20mm, I already scrapped the front lip on the ramp at my summer home were I am now, its the under part of the lateral of front lip but its painted and left a mark. The problem is the sportdesign from bumper the GTS has, it goes down mch lower than the regular CarreraS bumper.

    Re: Habemus... 991 GTS

    Fantastico Carlos. Simple as that.

    Black headlights, black rear grill, black wheels. Red stitching. Bravo !! 

    Love the front grill of the GTS. 

    991.2 must be really good, if not, I see 991.1 GTS raising in value. 

    Many congrats!!! and please post more pics !!! smiley
