You can spec up a base and S to look like GTS, But GTS has below as standard :

Different spoiler design in Gloss black
Sport sideskirt, Front and rear apron painted
Sideblades are different with GTS writing
Sport exhaust system painted in black

This is what’s on top of my head, Might’ve missed something

No, extra black trim on the GTS as standard includes: blacked led lights, black wheels, black exhaust tips, black badging, side window trims in black

You can get all this black on the S but need to pay extra for it.

I thought that was a nice summary of how to be the most profitable car maker. Create a model with extra cosmetic and tuned items that do not cost more to produce. Create an image for the model that people want to copy and then charge extra if they choose those items separately. ;) ;) ;) ;)

So, basically, to pretty much everyone that’s not a total anorak, the 3 models look the same.

Well yeah, I suspect we’re all anoraks ( we’re on line on a car forum afterall). But those people with lives are unlikely to see a Macan and instantly say “ that’s a GTS” ( unless they have the foresight to look at the boot ).

I struggle to tell the difference between a Cayenne and a Macan, never mind the version and trim level. OK back lights are the only quick way I can do it.
