The GTS is fast stock, and a rocket when tuned.

With that said, I still lust after a GT3 when i see one on the road. The GT3 sound is something else.

Especially if you have buckets in the GT3 and sofas in the GTS, the GTS will be more comfortable and versatile. GTS is more well rounded, GT3 surgical IMO

If you find an S loaded with ali the options you want, nothing wrong with that and adding the dealer installed X51 PowerKit. I bought a loaded S at a great discount and added the X51 PowerKit at a net cost of $3800 + tax, after selling my takeoff turbos. The X51 install costs no more than the X51 factory option if bought at discount, but leaves you with takeoff turbos to sell. This assumes you have the necessary performance options. Warranty is the same as factory. P3P Sport Package is best to have, and 031 PDCC is nice to have, in addition to P3P.
Good luck hunting.

You should consider a Carrera T instead, apparently God himself made it.

My next jump will be to a GT3 and was interested to hear what people had to say, so thank you for this thread.

Never drove a GT3.

But the GTS is mind blowingly comfortable in comparison to my old amg GTS. Which is much more of a track car, imho, than the 911.

I could not daily the amg. I was hurting after 20 minutes. I think I could easily daily my 911 GTS

Also take into consideration the "attention factor".
GT3 and RS get lots of attention that is not always welcome ( I have several other high end exotics and it's sometimes a pain in the but* with all the attention it garners ).
Ask yourself if you prefer to "fly under the radar" a little more, and if so, the GTS is your answer.

I find my .2 GTS almost too comfortable, suspension-wise. But only almost. Ultimately, I think it's perfect for what I was looking for, where comfort and livability was prioritized over raw performance.

All things are relative and different people have different degrees of tolerance for performance vs. comfort. I had replaced the stock suspension and rear motor mount in my already unrefined prior DD car, turning it into an extremely stiff car filled with NVH that was completely unlivable for anybody but the driver (and probably for most drivers).

So I have a feeling a GT3 or even GT3 RS would feel reasonably comfortable to me, even as a daily driver. Which is why I'm avoiding test driving them while my bank account heals.

That was actually a big factor in my choosing a GTS for a daily driver, along with my decision to go with GT Silver.

The quote above nails it.

I have a 2019 Targa4 GTS and a 2018 GT3. Both are awesome. Both are wildly different.

The GTS, especially in Targa format, is sublime. Tons of useable power. Decent sound track. Great comfort features. Great stereo (and you can actually hear it -- unlike the GT3).

The GT3 is like driving a chain saw in "angry mode". I love it also but it is completely different than the GTS. My wife is less of a fan. My friends prefer the GT3 over the GTS because, hey, we are dudes and who doesn't like driving angry kitchen appliances at WOT?

Good luck. It sounds like for your use the GTS is an awesome choice. Can't go wrong either way -- or just do what I had to do and get both. LOL.

Itís funny how the same old set of trolls show up every time. Easily amused and with the same recycled, tired lines. Itís bizarre how bothered some of you guys clearly are by the very existence of the Carrera T. Try to not let it keep you up tonight.

It was a joke mate! Lighten up a little... Don't let it trigger you.

When I was young I never thought I was going to have the honor to own a Porsche. To me every Porsche is a good Porsche.

Default daily driver

I think the M3 is a better daily driver than either one.

Iíve had both and they are different like people have already mentioned. One things Iíll add is that while a gts will never outperform a gt3 there are things you can do to increase power or handling if you feel like you need more; there isnít much you can do to ďbring downĒ a gt3 if you find it is too much of any of those
