I'd like to pick up a 718 but was wondering if there is much in the way of rumors of a GTS model being released?
You've also got to like the slightly different bodywork & interior. I'm not keen but at least you can rectify the interior at no cost. On top of that the standard front intakes on the base & S catch leaves but the open design on the GTS is far worse & is change just for the sake of it. It certainly isn't an improvement to my eyes. I'd also question telling someone that had a base car on order that they'd regret not altering that order & buying a GTS, or the S either for that matter despite the fact I own one (though it's a Boxster S in my case). The price difference between the Cayman base & GTS in particular is massive though ($27,900 Canadian) & enough to buy a cheaper second car as a run around. It's very easy to spend someone else's money & it could just as easily be the case that "ejdd" would live to regret the decision if they did alter their order. However there must have been some reasoning behind "ejdd's" original decision to run with the base model & I think they simply need to examine if those reasons still hold true before jumping. If they decide they've actually made a bit of a mistake, ordered the wrong car & now really want a GTS then crack on.I recall a YT video review of the previous generation GTS which concluded it was more cost-effective to selectively option-up an S -- unless you really wanted every option included in the GTS package.
Kind of what I figured. There's no doubting that if you actually want all the items as fitted to the GTS then it's a good package & it is one that would suit myself for instance. My own Boxster S has all of the options fitted to the GTS as standard apart from the torque vectoring & the cosmetic differences (obviously it has slightly less power as well, despite sharing the same engine) so if I were in the market for a new car then despite some of my reservations regarding those cosmetics then I'd certainly look at it. But being as you'd opted for the 2.0 model then I didn't think the comment stating you'd regret not changing your order & buying a GTS to be particularly helpful.I stuck with the base+options, 20k of options!?!?!?!?!. Main reason for ultimately not going for the GTS (and the wait) or even the S for that matter was pushing my budget to max. It would have meant dropping options. Ultimately I preferred some creature comfort options rather than extra power that I would likely rarely need. Possibly last minute buyer's remorse/panic. As this is a GTS thread I'll finish by saying, the GTS still seems to be a great deal if you would be optioning up the vehicle with all the included add ins.
I don?t know about that, I saw the other day.. http://www.caymanoc.com/home/records/718-gt4-spotted-r34/Me too, ....
I hope it will come with the 4.0 N/A engine and PDK.
But the 718 GT4 will not come before 2019
I'd be surprised if it had a PDK. It is all about being a driver's car after all. That was one of the aspect of the last GT4 that people really loved.It looks like the GT4 will come early. Maybe 2018.
But PDK who knows.... I doubt it.
