I guess now I see why Porsche makes many variants of 911. I had a 2015 GTS PDK- but for me it was a little too soft and needed to be lowered a tad. At certain times could use a little more power...stepped into a TT but more preferred NA high revs. Satisfied this with GT3.

Folks have different preferences — that’s what makes it fun to look around the market.

A lot of food for thought here. Don't wanna go 991.2 (non-GT3) because of the forced induction. But some of the other options are very intriguing I must admit. A 997 GT3 in various vintages, 991.1 GTS MT, makes me think I can dole out $100k or less for 1 of those (haven't looked) and that'd be the same or less than if I sold my cab and got a 991.2 GT3 MT... maybe the missus won't put my nads in a sling... too much, lol.

Or I could keep the cab, get the GT3 and roll the dice. People on both sides of that fence too.

Super helpful stuff, thanks!
Easier to ask for forgiveness than permission usually

I'd consider a Targa GTS in your situation because those second set of seats are important, here's a NA example, I'm sure you can find one with a man tran.

I'm in the same boat as you, four kids, 15, 13, 12 & 7. Those older kids can't ride in back and so I moved to a 3 Touring, yes there are times, in a pinch, when I want a third seat (a forth behind the driver - no way).

Anyway I enjoy the coital comforts of home so I had to be relatively transparent with my transaction.

All kidding aside, thanks for the suggestions. I've always been partial to the Targas. Some years back I lost my closest friend who drank the Stuttgart Kool-Aid long before I did. He owned early to mid-80s Targas that leaked like sieves 2 or 3 at a time, so I've always wanted to buy one to remember him by. The 50th Anniversary, like the GTSs have the powerkit, so that may also be an option...

Maybe go for a turbo S cab 991.1 and keep the GT3

I have had GT3 and a Targa for a lil while. I drive the targa with the kids and the GT3 alone.
