Hi R

Wow, gorgeous spec, if only a cab, I’d have it in a heartbeat.

I’ve had no luck with a Spyder this time around, so I’m thinking a GTS Cab similar to yours would tie my over nicely.

Good luck with the sale.
Ah thanks for that - in truth, I don’t really want to sell it - it’s an awesome car and I much prefer the looks and sounds of the 991.2 to the 992 -but new Spyder incoming in Sept and I’m running a strict one in one out policy smile

Good luck with your search - are you sure you don’t fancy another 981 Spyder - I know that’s what I would have done if I didn’t get a 718 Spyder smile

Hey all - I’m in the market for a 991 (not a GTS sadly but this is quite an active thread...)

Cab or no cab? This is a strictly weekend car. I do like a convertible but have only ever had ‘normal’ ones so not sure I want to ruin the 911 experience by going cab if something is lost over a coupe?

Thanks.

Congrats, looks like a lovely car.

Agree about the 992, a superb DD but it occupies the space in my garage for my weekend toy and I think I can do better......

ETA, mine is a cab and came pre-specced by my OPC. It’s fully loaded with all the comfort features but none of the driver aids.

Did my PEC day last week in a car with PDCC and RWS and it made a huge difference to the handling. I’d like to wait for the 992 GTS but I’m rubbish at waiting.........

Great spec - crucially, without the sunroof. Got to be the best out there.

Coupe for me, the cab has awkward styling with the roof down, if I 100% needed a convertible I’d rather have a Boxster. If a sunroof coupe is insufficient perhaps a Targa? They’re very, very nice.

Any 991.1 manuals around ? these are so rare
Short answer.. no

I’ve been watching the market for the last 8 months and only seen 4 advertised..

For me that is the true ‘must have’ option but the majority obviously don’t agree!
Saw this one pop up. Not a huge fan of the colour, the roof, the sports design pack or the interior, BUT - spanish, buckets, PCCB.....

Interesting, first one I've seen for a while

Odd spec though with buckets and multi function wheel.. perhaps the original owner enjoyed adjusting the radio mid corner on track days!

Never seen a GTS with the aluminum interior trim either..

I’ve just bought another GTS. Graphite blue 2wd with RWS and GTS packs. Pdk this time. Just need an exhaust for it! Great cars and so useable. Makes most things feel slow.

Someone please buy my old white manual 991.2 at Nottingham. It’s been for sale for almost a year now.

8k miles, only options are buckets, smoking pack, Bose, heated seats and GTS alcantara pack. It was a great car, no sunroof too so proper drivers spec. I shouldn’t have sold it in hindsight. £86k and I did most of the miles.

Possibly, but could that just be the default for the configurator?

What car did you move to after your first GTS?

Fokker... which exhaust are you considering for the 991.2 GTS? Akrapovic seem to be the best of the bunch for the Gen 2 991?

Flippin eck that didn’t hang around! manual .1 GTS seem to sell almost instantly. I guess with only about 45 ever registered in the UK they will be pretty hard to find.
The last naturally aspirated powerkit engine etc etc

Yes but its so expensive. The Sharkwerks exhaust is about 2k so I am considering this...

Keen to know your thoughts on the change as I am thinking of moving from my 991 GTS to a 981 GT4.

I know it’s all personal views but would be good to get your opinion.

Hi all

I may be in the market for a gen 2 GTS. Looking around this seems like a good spec / price combo. Does anyone have any comments on this car - https://www.jzmporsche.com/used-vehicle-details/Po...

Thank you!

If you are in the market for a 991.2 GTS this is the only car to buy! Great spec and a fastidious previous owner.....
