Default Should I cancel my 4S order and get a T?

2018 911 4S (140k)
http://www.porsche-code.com/PJXS8689

vs

2018 911 T (134k)
http://www.porsche-code.com/PJRSBSH7


Should I cancel my 4S order and get a T?

- Looks almost the same
- Save 6k
- Cool bucket seats
- Ceramic brakes on the T!

thoughts?

Your builds are totally different, one is AWD and back seats the other is with LWBs (eliminates the rear seat) and the standard RWD with 8k brake upgrade... What is your main use for the car? That would help others chime in.

The main draw to the T is the "rawness", simplicity and lightweight aspect. Some people would argue that the pdk and sunroof are a no-no with a spec such as yours which includes the buckets and carbon brakes.

btw your links are flip flopped.

My main use is a weekend car to cruise around in. No plans for tracking the car. I'm wondering if a T would provide the same level of fun while saving 6k. Yea the comparisons are not one to one.

Is a 134k 911 T optioned too expensive?

I sold a 4S and moved to the TTS another AWD car. Love them and you would love the 4 in S model. Go for it.

I think as a weekend fun car you could go with the T and have blast and possibly save even more than 6k. Take out the sunroof and maybe some of the other creature comforts. Does a 7 speed manual appeal to you? Have you driven a PDK of the 7MT? You may find the 7MT more engaging and therefore "fun". BTW the other thing is that a build-able T allocation may be hard to find, some larger dealers on the country have only 3-4 allocations.

For some reason I can't compute your comparison.

A better comparison would be T vs the Base Carrera.

The T is just not that special to me.

But I would be all over the 4/4S.

My T build, if I were to order it, is about $130K or so. FWIW

You are over thinking it. Keep the 4S.

This.

For that amount of coin he's spendng.... I agree, get a GTS (rwd, coupe, manual). It's the sweet spot of the 991.2 line (excluding the GT# cars).

l agree with this. Iím sorry but I donít see the specialness if the T. Not much lighter, not any faster, and I donít get the appeal of cloth door pulls.
