I have a 2012 C4 GTS 6MT, alcantara delete (apparently rare), short shifter, aerokit (and some other options). I knew it was rare but didn't realize the 997.2 GTS's were that rare as I do see a reasonable amount of 991 GTS's.

One guy this past summer was telling me the alcantara delete and aerokit are rare options. The alcantara delete and aerokit, plus the condition were the reasons I paid the large premium (IMHO) over a regular S.

Thanks
Sea To Sky Hwy is the route we love to drive when the weather permit. Highly recommended when you are in BC Canada. https://www.hellobc.com/road-trips/s...highway-route/
One of my friend has GT4 and other has 2017 Turbo S. We will switch car and will let you know how I feel when the weather permit and I get used to handle the 911. Disclosure: I am NOT a race driver but been driving for more than 35 years. My first car is a Yellow 1978 Honda Civic lawn mower five-speed manual transmission and become sport car enthusiast ever since!

You mean this one ? List as 2012 model year but build May 1, 2011. For sale in Canada as 2012.

I have a 2012 RWD GTS coupe, but glad to see that they are so rare they didn't even exist (according to that link). In all seriousness, there are a fair number of 2012s around.

Awesome, I bought my 2012 C4GTS in 2015 with 5000 mi. It has 33,000 now, it's been a great car. I don't see myself ever selling it. Get the Sharkwerks bypass.

Me too, I had 2 chances to buy 2014 4S and 2015 4S at wholesale cost + small fee. Decline both offer because my heart set for 997.2 C4GTS. Will pass it down to my grandchildren if he/she wouldn't have bought into the Taycan autonomous electric car craze.
Question: our cars already have PSE, how much different SW bypass make? Deeper base? Loudness is not my issue, it's the bellissimo porsche sound that I fall in love with. As some guy put "The Jaguar F-Type S is the frappuccino in this analogy, while the Alfa Romeo 4C is the espresso. " I only drink Americano!

SW drops it an octave at low rpm, not much louder. At high rpm it makes your ears tingle. I did the sea-to-sky last September. No places to pass unfortunately but staggering scenery. I hope you rack up a lot of road trip miles.

Yup. That would be two of them. With age I sometimes have to assume my memory may fail me but I was pretty sure they existed so not sure why they were left out of the production number summary.

See my response above. I knew I had seen them.

No doubt they're out there but in smaller numbers than the 2011 since the 991 was introduced 2012. Would love to get my hands on a low mile 2012.

its a noticeable improvement. The upshift on PDK is much more aggressive and there are burbles lifting off the throttle frequently. At high RPM’s it’s a glorious sound. I never looked back, as I modify the car more and more I’d eventually like to keep the valves opened at all times. The second thing I do every time I drive after putting it in sports plus, is turn on loud mode.

Thanks to both Hula (one octave lower) and Pilfer (PDK/SW sound description). SW bypass will be on my list to do this Summer. While cross shopping on SW site, see this cool 2012 GTS PTS (paint-to-sample) in Blue Turquoise (3AS) with movie clip show SW sound. Yep, It's definitely Domenico Montagnana Italiancello "rough-and-tumble forceful deep tone base sound"! I like it.
