    I want to buy my first ever Porsche 911, but which one do I go for?
    I really like the thought of a GTS but which gen? 3.8 or 3.0. Also you can get a newish T or Carrera S for the same money. Any thoughts

    This is lovely for a 3.8 and OPC supplied, low miles too. Full GTS interior is a must personally on any GTS.

    It's a tough one with the 3.8 and 3.0T, I think it would be best to try and drive both. But an equivalent spec and miles 3.0T will likely be £5+k more.

    Good option, the 991.1 GTS. Sound, good power, rear seats, insane driving pleasure, NA engine, soulful car. For me I like the aero kit and GTS interior.

    The best 911 that outsold ALL of the others is the VW Beetle.

    Been deliberating between a 991.1 GTS and a 991.2 C2S. Love the styling of the 991.2 but prefer the sound of the 3.8!

    Has anyone gone between either of the above?
    (Sorry OP, not trying to hijack the thread!)

    I bought a 991.1 GTS PDK in October, it has a spec I haven't seen on another to date and I absolutely love it.
    PDCC -20mm, PASM, PCCB, GTS Interior, PDLS+, ACC, 18 way seats, Carbon centre trim and finished in black, now with a ceramic coating and front PPF.

    Here’s 991.1 GTS Cardiff sent me, which is currently for sale I think 77k (the video was made for someone else). I’m not into the colour (agate grey) but has a nice interior combo with aero kit.

    My GTS had a sunroof and it was a squeaking annoyance !

    I would not spec one and try to avoid if possible . the Aero kit also is a no no for me aesthetics wise but each to their own
