I'd get the Gen 1 Turbo PP every day of the week, obvious I'd say that as I did.

If it needs to be Gen 2, I think I'd go GTS unless it was for towing.

From the power and torque curves in the link above it looks like the torque is artificially limited, presumably to protect the transmission as both the GTS and Turbo have the same max torque across the Rev range.

I just had a look on the DMS website to see what power they get out of both, they are only showing the turbo at the moment. I was hoping you'd see both sitting at the same power and torque, meaning they're the same power plant and intercoolers etc.

Noticed the OP said he had a test drive? Was this at a main dealership?

Was it during this lock down? Porsche Wolverhampton said I have no chance of a test drive cause its against the law.

Ahhh, that explains it. I assumed it was very close to when the thread was started, my bad.

Has anyone compared both cars with air suspension using the sport plus settings? I would like to know if they both feel the same when both in their sportiest settings?
