Possibly win the award for cheapest reason to visit a garage , and leave with most expensive bill puh

An 80 pence plastic stopper had dropped off spoiler... I even bought two of them ....

Daughter and I raid the OPC fridge (twice) use the bog, read their magazines, sit in a few.cars...
Wander aimlessly around the car park.....
They have my dream car... (Relatively speaking)

A black 997 GTS coupe ... So I say to salesman... Run the numbers for me ...

I LOVE my 4s... But should be a reasonable upgrade !?

355bhp vs 408 bhp
AWD vs RWD
Manual vs PDK
Sunroof vs No Sunroof
PCM 2 vs PCM 3
2006 vs 2011
1475kg vs 1420kg
4.8.sec.vs 4.6 sec

🤣🤣


See you at Donnington

Did the garage get the power figure wrong in their advert, they mention 385 but you put 408 bhp?

Looks like a nice car, but I must admit that I don't get the GTS thing in general. I can see a turbo as a step up but I wonder if the GTS is not just too much of a marketing exercise?

I really could be missing something (quite new to Porsche) and not trying to rain on your very excellent parade. Happy to be shown the error of my ways. Meanwhile I'll get my coat and put on my flame suit.....

If I ever change mine, it will need to be a GTS (997.2 or 991.1), love them Thumb
