I, too, have a (2017) 971 4S with sports package and rear axle steering, though no PDCC. I am seriously considering ordering a 2020 GTS. I have always felt like there's not quite enough "grunt" starting from a full stop in my 4S in normal mode. I realize the horsepower is slightly more in the GTS and the torque is quite a bit more, but it is coupled with a hefty increase in weight. So, the stated 0-60 speed is virtually the same between the 4S and GTS. Is there a noticeable feeling of more power from a stoplight?

Any other changes you have noticed?

Not apples to apples, but I came to the 2017 971 4S from a 4.0T Audi S6. The low-end grunt was noticeably better on the S6. The car felt A LOT faster, even though on paper the HP is about the same as the 4S. The 4.0T engine is also very tunable for even more HP/TQ if that's a route you'd go down at some point.

You can giving me the best comparison. My 4S had sports package and exhaust. Did your old car jabs the sport exhaust too?
Yes, sport crrono, rear steer, sport exhaust. Sound much lower stronger sound. Sport plus changes sound more than sport. PDCC is great. A different car without it.

Tune is very nice. 4.0 is has very low end tq, mpg going down.... but big difference.
