Default Got my "new to me" 991.1 GTS!

Hello guys!

I've been a long time lurker (I know, weird)...but I just picked up my new to me 2015 GTS. Quick specs: Manual, CL wheels, Chrono, Red seatbelts (very important), Full Leather (although I did want Alcantara), BOSE, and SPASM. Love the car! I had a base 997.1 before this and this is leaps and bounds ahead of that. Love the way the exhaust sings. I wanted a white car with black interior, and when this popped up at Porsche Chandler I had to get it. They weren't willing to wiggle too much, but MSRP is $133, they had it listed at $117, and I got it for $108k. 8200 miles on it.

I'll try to get more pics later, but here it is on that awesome day!

Very nice car. Congratulations! What is the over-under on how long it takes you to swap out the front side marker lights?

Lol I had the clear markers in hand even before my car was delivered.

Thanks guys! I was hoping for $104k, but I am happy with the price in the end. Well worth it for getting very close to what I wanted. This is also the third car I've purchased from my sales guy, so I think that helped out also

It's missing the Keyless Entry and Go, but I ordered the antenna's and I have a PIWIS II so I'm going to try retrofitting it and seeing if that works. If it does, I'll post instructions on it. Now to get it wrapped or PPF on it at the very least.

It's a GT2! More info here. Lot of custom work on it. They said it was ridiculously loud as well...

I traded mine in to a dealer in June, a 15 with 136MSRP, pretty similar to yours but PDK) and got $100k. They sold it for 112k, and that was with 12k miles. So getting yours with 8k miles for 108 is a solid deal.

It's missing the Keyless Entry and Go, but I ordered the antenna's and I have a PIWIS II so I'm going to try retrofitting it and seeing if that works. If it does, I'll post instructions on it.
I specifically ordered mine without it. I hate that chit.

Very nice and Welcome!
I picked-up my '15 GTS last February --- nearly identical to yours in white, glass roof, CLs, SC, PASM Sport! Sounds like the only major diff is I went with PDK vs. MT. The interior I have the alcantara with deviated stitching (which also has the red highlighting on the seat belts). I chose this car over others primarily to get the alcantara.... Picked-up with (if I recall correctly) 8700 miles on it CPO from PWB FL, nearly same price too!
