We're going to get Bobby really confused! LOL! If you did not tick the SPASM box, then you won't have the lowered suspension. If you did take SPASM, then in theory, you would have a stiffer ride.

The suspension is not raised but lowered when you tick the SPASM box. So the debate is about the cosmetic and the slight handling improvement vs the decrease in ride comfort.
This is what I presumably get if I tick that box.

Did GTS different. On the Carrera S he is right. If you take the box it is lowered. On the GTS it comes lowered if you take the box it’s raised . Instead of getting the GTS suspension which is derived from the turbo and turbo S you end up with a Carrera S suspension has n a GTS. It is a big difference because the Carrera S suspension is not the same as the turbo and GTS. On the turbo you get the GTS suspension but it is raised . You have to tick the box even on the turbo S to have it lowered. In short the GTS gets the most raw suspension witches apparent in one of its many features of driving dynamics. The GT3, Doesn’t even talk about it. It’s even more aggressive than the GTS. It is a pure track and part-time street type of car.

Ahhh, that's because the GTS comes standard with the Sport Suspension. So by ticking the box you actually "raise" the suspension, bringing it back to a standard 911.

In effect, you and I won't have SPASM but Larry and Bobby will!

If it's not clear, Bobby will explain it!!! LOL! 😉
He has a GTS and he didn’t raise it. He has the sport suspension. So the three of us have it.

@LessKrazy1 Do you wanna meet tomorrow morning when I pick up my car and see for yourself about the suspension as well as the car? I’m going to be just learning it myself. You’re welcome to join me if you’re in Miami. I thought you were in Ontario.

I would love to but I am in Ontario until mid May. It would be great to meet up then. Thanks again.

Specifically to you with the 992 S you ticked "sport package" and it has the lowered suspension . @LessKrazy1 has a GTS and it is lowered standard . They do offer a chance to raise it but I have yet to meet anyone who ordered a GTS. with it raised pages of builds .. ZERO GTS builds on RL Those with a GTS ordered, post your build - Rennlist - Porsche Discussion Forums

The majority of S builds have the lowered suspension as well. The "sport package" basically adds many GTS traits to an S .

The Targa can not have a GTS suspension . Its the only model variant which does not due to its 250 pound roof sitting right in the center of mass .

I look as wiped out as I feel Its been extremely exciting and I am up way past my sleep time but I am on to the next journey .

In my brief drive the car is a monster . It handles like its on rails . The suspension is much more firm than the 991.2 which I happen to like . It handles like its on rails . The lightweight package keeps outside ambient noise out but lets the exhaust roar note in. Its intense !! Less than 30 miles and I am totally blown away . More to come .
Looks great!
congrats.

The Easter Bunny delivered my welcome kit today….read it cover to cover. How many miles so far Larry???
LOL . You are still at the point of saving this stuff . I used to be that way too . I looked at the letter like it was some type of award . Then a time came when I bought more tax one and it got to a point where I put it in a corner and didn't open it . Getting old is odd wgwn a Porsche letter suddenly becomes es junk mail .I go through the same with Chistophorus .
