The 6MT GTS doesn't shift as crisp as a g50 911 or a Boxster, but I find the shifting experience more refined than my older rear engined Porsches. If you want the quickest way to get your family...

My 08 GTS has the 1N3 Variable Assist Power Steering listed as an option. I assume this is the same as Servotronic? If so I thought it only added boost at low speeds? Does it also add boost at...

Have the control set at Auto, with a temp setting at 68F. Mine regulates the temp pretty spot on, with the fan control automatically going up or down depending if we are sitting in the sun or not.
