Where did you find a GTS and is it a manual?

Weird. My -11 GTS was first titled January 3, 2012 best I can tell suggesting a late 2011 build but still a 2011.

Look on the underside of the driverís door and the build date will be shown on the decal there. I suspect yours was built the spring of Ď11.

Our 997.2 GTS (itís actually his, but I like to call it ours) has a build date of 7/12. If itís typically risky to order one of the first-built of a new model to roll off the production line, then is it any assurance of a well sorted more reliable car to buy one of the last of the breed to be built?

I would tend to agree with your statement, assuming it was not built on a Friday afternoon just after the Zuffenhausen Factory Worker's Picnic. Prost!
