Default '09 C4S vs '12 C4 GTS

I sold my .2 C4S two years ago and wasn't looking to replace it, but a C4 GTS came up for sale with all the right specs, and it looks like I'm going to pull the trigger. 6500 km on the clock, 6 sp, and Meteor Grey

I'm not going to get a chance to drive it before I pick it up, but the deal is contingent upon the car meeting my approval before I sign the final paperwork at delivery.

I expect that the GTS and C4S will feel almost identical, and extra 23 hp will almost be unnoticeable. My C4S was too quiet, and expect that the PSE will add some aural excitement. Has anyone driven both?

before your approval, you better have a complete cpo inspection by a dealer, and check car fax and do alot of research
Thats before buying any car

Thanks, yes, this is my 3rd 911 and I always PPI. It is CPO and it's got a clean history. The good doctor traded it in on a Cayenne Turbo.

That 23 hp is mostly at the top end. get ready for a kick in the pants above 5800. The torque doesn't end on the GTS like it does on the S
