Default 991.1 TTS to 992 S

I'm playing with the idea of making the change just to get something new. I'm guessing the performance gap will be quite large. Driving reviews for the 992 are not out yet so I have no basis. Will I regret it? It will be my daily.

Are you trading for the MT? If not also confused by the trade. 3.8 to a 3.0 and a lot less ponies. Are you bored with your car? Try a tune and some other accessories.

I guess I'm a bit bored and wanted a change but don't want to go with a GT car as a daily. I guess the 992 S is the new shiny object and I hear it's plenty quick for daily duty. Also don't want to wait another year for the new TTS to arrive.

I'm sure your going to test drive the 992 S before you make your final decision, as others have said, it will be a step down in power.

Ended up with a Carrera T in manual. More engaging but slower. It's my daily so I can live with that.

Do it! Someone else will be happy to buy your TTS and get a lot of pleasure out of it. Stupid money is good for my Porsche stock.

Congrats. That is something I can understand, as for me MT is a game changer. I hope you kept your TTS .
