Opinions sought re Gen 3 S V GTS

Post by Nelladrahcir » Tue Jul 20, 2021 2:13 pm

Folks

I've have a deposit down on a GTS since April and am just about to pull the trigger on the final spec but this morning has completely thrown me???

So I have now spec'd a Gen 3 S compared to my previous Gen 2 GTS and also a Gen 3 GTS by way of further comparison.

Gen 3 S code PN5ZDLT1 £61683 + otr

Gen 3 GTS code PNNLP634 £71841 + otr

I've spec'd leather interior as I wanted the leather dash top, not sure if that is actually included in the 14/18 way seats package if anyone can advise?

The only extras that I've included on the S to bring it up to the bits on the GTS that I want are the air suspension (again possibly not necessary with 20" wheels), 75l tank, black window trims and rear logo in black with model deleted.

I'm struggling to work out why I should pay over £10k (over £11k if I bin the air suspension) for a bit more power I can never use and very probably would never notice, 1" larger wheels, brakes that again I'm probably never going to notice, painted lower trim that will chip and a grill that looks lower spec than the S???

Any opinions appreciated

:-)

I think you’ve summed up the situation well. It’s hard to see £10k worth of difference between the two. My only comment would be to go for air on the S. It’s good for comfort and you can lower the suspension if you want and achieve one of the few differences compared to the GTS – lower ride height.

Previously one of the few plus points of the GTS (for my priorities) was the Alcantara interior but that’s gone now.

Depending how you spec it, it won't be £10,000 more for the GTS. Have you done this to see actual£?

The prices should pop up on the codes.

I've been looking all morning.

Unless I'm missing something the difference boils down to the power, air suspension, brakes, painted panels, wheels, fuel tank, badges and trim options that you can only get (and pay more for) on the GTS.

Welcome to PorscheWorld.. I did this comparison and it comes down to £5,000 more for the GTS. Frankly, that's a price I'm willing to pay.

They start off £11,470 different. I spec'd an extra £1540 worth of extras on the S over and above what I spec'ed for both cars so the difference is £10,000.

If it was only £5k I would probably go for the GTS.

Have you opted for 21's, Air Sus, 14 way seats (which means you have to have Extended Leather), 75L tank, Gloss Black here and there, Sports Exhaust to name just a few. My guess is what you Want on the S is less than you get on the GTS. Which is fine but you are comparing Apples with Oranges on this occasion.
