My list has varied as I've contemplated a CPO car. I just bought one which checks almost all the boxes (so, if it's on my list, is it really a "must have?")

1) Leather interior
2) SC (always planned on a PDK)

Those two were non-negotiable. As it turns out, I added two more, having appreciated the difference they make to me:

3) GT Sport wheel
4) 18-ways. All I can say is WOW

Finally:

5) PSE. My car does not have this, so I plan to add after market.

In addition, my car has SPASM, which was not an original top-five but seems pretty cool. I haven't spent any appreciable time behind the wheel, so I will continue assessing.

Manuals are fun, drove them for 20 years, got bored, traffic got bad and so i switched to Auto's. Nothing wrong with either, best to have 1 of each if possible
Ditto Bemo. Bought by first P-car in '89 and have been gear jamming ever since. Never thought I'd have anything but MT, but then came PDK, and bought my first PDK 991 last year, I have a huge appreciation for PDK. Not lazy, or bias, or a MT hater, but perhaps simply rounding out with age. Plus I can drink my coffee, hold the wheel and shift sans scrambling for gears.

This thread is now long enough that about every option has been mentioned, with one glaring exception:

Good floor mats!

The standard ones are tissue paper grade. If your car is a garage queen, not important, but if you don't live in a microprocessor factory grade clean room, get some Lloyd's or Coco mats--something durable.

My list, based on the GTS I've just ordered to replace my '15 GT3. (No, I haven't lost my mind. I'm no longer the track rat I once was, and the GT3 has been modified to the point that it's just not a very practical street car anymore. Mostly, it sits in the garage.)

GTS (I had a 997.2 and loved it.)
PDK (Shattered my right ankle many years ago, never could do a decent heel and toe afterwards.)
PDCC/SPASM/rear wheel steering (I intent to continue to AX the car)
Alcantara (I hate leather. Too hot, too cold, always slippery.)
No sunroof. I never use them, think they're pointless.)

Not a top five item, but I always buy a car in a light color, usually white. I live in a hot environment (inland SoCal) and dark colors just don't work for me. I went with Chalk this time around, since I've always loved Fashion Gray and this seems pretty close.

'15 GT3
'16 RS7
'18 911 GTS on order, due in April
'18 Panamera Turbo Sport Turismo, trapped on the dock in San Diego since December, awaiting CARB certification.

My 991.1 S was racing yellow. The Highway Patrol could see me coming like the rising sun. I think they could see the glow before I even crossed the horizon. People think red cars are the most noticeable, but they're wrong. Bright yellow is.My first purchase after I bought the car was a good radar detector.

Thanks, DMoore. That's useful information, bearing in mind my Racing Yellow Carrera T on order!
