I quite like the GTS but does it need
GTS interior
Centre Lock alloys
Dealer seems to think so
Simple answer is yes.

You can get the same look as the GTS package without the contrast colouring if you dont want that, by optioning the extensive leather with racetex option, that gives you the extra racetex on the lower dash and doors to stop it looking like a poverty GTS.

Then you can also add the extra carbon too (which is considerably cheaper if not optioning the GTS package). You can also add a contrast stitch if you wish too, which is what ive done to get yellow stitching to match the exterior colour.

people who have ordered, what have you gone for with PASM?

On my 991.2 GTS the convertible didn't have the option of the additional -10mm GTS suspension, it was just PASM, which has been great, I keep it in comfort on the motorway and then in sport for everywhere else.

On the 992 theres the no cost option of PASM or the GTS specific -10mm with rear helper springs. Does anyone know if this still has the multi options via a button to have a comfort option for motorways? Or is it just fixed in GTS sport mode?

It still calls it GTS-specific PASM, the A standing for active.....



Electronically variable active damping system with three manually selectable modes (‘Comfort’, ‘SPORT’ and ‘SPORT PLUS’)


NOTE: On 911 GTS models, PASM replaces the GTS-specific PASM sports chassis with 10mm lowering and rear helper springs.

So exactly what options are we saying should be spec'd internally?

GTS interior package
Carbon package
Bose
Probably reversing camera / surround

Plus whatever tickles your fancy

I have been considering a 992 GTS and like the look of the Aerokit (not seen in the flesh though). Then i got to thinking after watching alot of Youtube that perhaps a base 992 Carrera would be just as good and potentially 20k+ cheaper.. on the configurator there is no option for Aerokit on the base 992, only the sport design package. My dealer told me I cant have Aerokit on the base model, yet I have seen base 992 Carrera for sale with Aerokit? Can anyone confirm if the Aerokit really isn't an available factory option?

All opinions welcome in the for and against each model, I haven't been able to drive either yet.

Thanks

Just ordered mine, on the advice on here and Sean at Porsche Glasgow I went with the GTS interior package. It's a black card I ordered so have went with the Black with Red contrasting, lovely.

Didn't go Carbon but went with :
Bose
Folding Mirrors
AeroKit
Reversing Camera
Racetex GT Wheel
Electric Tilt/Slide Glass Roof
Privacy Glass


First Porsche ordered!!

Happy 40th from me to me!!

I thought the carbon interior was a compulsory option with the GTS interior package?

There's maybe some carbon in the pack, I didn't add any more carbon thought.

That would be the over £2k worth they make you add when you select the GTS interior pack

Amazing until you got to the option of Privacy glass. This being your first Porsche you might want to rethink Privacy. Especially on a black car, Privacy makes the body shape look really weird.

'quite' suggests to me you should rethink it, or see it in person. Get it without and then take it in for a subtle tint across the board.

Privacy glass is a good tick box, especially on the rear glass. When your lock out date, I found there was always time for the odd little extra….

Makes the world go round that we like different things. Personally I think it ruins the shape of the car on the side view.
I don't buy the argument of heat reduction, what with A/C installed. Nor, security - who is leaving valuable stuff on display in any car let alone a Porsche - therefore unless you are driving a celebrity or an FBI agent around sat in the back seat - and lets face it, its either small kids or dogs - then whats with the need for privacy glass?
Go for it but personally it looks dreadful in my opinion.

All about opinions. I went back and had a look and tints are defo up my street. Could give or take the 5 racks for the interior but it seems it’s a good option so we’re paying out for some red thread and fancy plastic lol.

I think Privvy looks great, had it on my C2S Coupe below back in early 19 that i used in Spain a lot 100% helps with the heat build up. No need to have the AC on full power with the Privy Glass. Its a must have on a GTS imv, On 992 Turbo S not seen a car without it.

Hi guys,

I am planning to order a 992 GTS, and would really appreciate your opinion.

You can see my full config using Porsche Code: PNKKV5T0.

I would appreciate any comments on the config, but mainly, I am torn between two interior trims:
1. Leather interior, Black (stitching Crayon) (KA)
2. Race-Tex interior package with extensive items in leather, seat centres leather (GM)

Which one would you choose and why?
Do you have any photos of the race-tex interior w/leather - especially of the doors and glovebox?
I had to give up on GTS interior trim, as it can't be configured with ventilated seats that are a must for me.

Thanks in advance
