You have not 1, but 2 station wagons. Thanks for your input.

And, yeah, I too really want a GTS. Just not willing to spend $70+.
Nice minus the transmission but my God the price

There's just no way that ever makes sense. Annoyingly, it's propping up the used market with folks like myself. Sucks being your own problem.

They need to build something like the RS America again. I thought the original 911 r rumors were something similar.

But yeah what is the point when they can sell as many 100k plus 911 they want.

I would much rather a base 991 over a 997S, but that's me. And I test drove a ton over the last few months, pretty much right after I got the GT4 and knew it wasn't working. I like a good ride and a more balanced handling feel. I don't mind a revvy engine that likes winding up. The 997 certainly drives more "911-like", but to me, not a fetishist, that's a positive. Don't miss the bobbing light nose. The 991 front end actually has grip going into a turn.
