Default 17 vs. 18 vs. 19 TTS...

Hi Guys,

Contemplating a 991.2 TTS. This would be my second Porsche. Newbie to TTS question - what differences (if any) are there between the 2017, 2018, and 2019 TTSs?

I know most cars have “running line changes” (slight changes in parts/components/OEM suppliers/etc.), but are there any physical/feature/body differences between these cars?

thx,
L76

Biggest difference I found , is there is NOT much difference in price. Might be my SouthEast region, but I ordered a new 19 for $15k more than any less than 10,000 mile used 2017 or 18 I could find on AT or CG. Good luck !

Default Key difference

They were produced on different dates. That’s about it as far as I know.

I believe the information system PCM is slightly different........you have to have a ATT chip inserted that has a monthly charge to access Google Maps in the 17 and in the 18 and 19, there is no chip required as it is built in.......ask your dealer.........

As far as the rest of the car, I believe the headlamp washers are not available on the 19 and you could get chrome plated ones with the 17, but not 18 as they are body color.....

Can't get Graphite Blue Metallic with the 19, but only with 17 and 18s......color discontinued as a regular offering.......now a PTS color I believe.......

Thx Guys. This explains why the 2017s and 2018s are holding their values so well. Will be interesting to see what the 992 TTS portends...
Cheers,

In 2017 they changed the PCM as well as the turbo's internals, not the car, the turbo chargers themselves, I believe this added 20 hp in the process. I ordered a 2018, when I was told about the same car I ordered that was traded in by an 82 year old guy, it was a 2017 with 2002 miles, couldn't have purchased a better car, and it came with 2 extra years unlimited mileage warranty, no brainer.

More to it than that. Head revisions, fuelling revisions, suspension/PDCC revisions, cabin sound switch, different steering wheel for chrono cars (at least), RWS became standard IIRC, PDK point revision for reliability, boost tube fixes, and more.

Not to mention minor facelift. In 2017, the 991.1 became the 991.2 which has different taillights (3 dimensional) and running lights.

hcvone, Steve Cole, and Hawkeye 911 point out the differences between the 991.1 and 991.2 TTS models. My question was specific to differences between the three production years of the 991.2 model to-date (e.g. years 2017, 2018, and 2019). Appreciate the info guys.

cheers,
