On Macan Forum one of the members spec'd a beautiful Turbo S . As I went through the configurator along with him I learned its a very different type of car to build . I had spent most of my time on the GTS followed by the Gt3 . I also dabbled with the T , S , and Base cars almost as much as the two main ones I was pondering for myself .
There are a lot of options on the Turbo S that are not on the other cars . For instance the sport design package has a different fascia and the wing has a horn like look . It also has side skirts with widen the appearance . One can paint the plastic bits either in exterior color or gloss black . Even the air slats can be gloss black . He loves the gloss black stuff .
The gloss stuff wasn't for me and even the exterior color I felt was over the top. The sport design got a lot of forum love in Rennlist but I would not want it on mine . One thing I noticed is that one can make the model designation gloss black but not satin . The same goes for the Porsche logo on the rear . I don't like gloss so I would leave it as is . I also would want the lightweight package but if one chooses the 18 way seats it has to be leather . I can't believe I can't choose race tex !!!! Ideally the buckets are the choice but I am pricing in my age and that it would be a daily .
By the way .. I am not ordering one but I built one as if I was . I considered a more luxury build car but what draws me in. is the sub 10 sec 1/4 mi time (vs 10.3) which is to me the main strength of the Turbo S . Its not that it would embarrass itself on a track but at that price its a Gt3. As a daily it put me exactly where I am which is why I bought a GTS . I thought about all of this before I put my deposit .
So I decided to build one just to see . Its my first because once I ruled out the car I had no dabbled in it.
This is what I got . Its 40K less than what the guy on MF has but I feel it would suit me .
So how about you ? Build one for fun .
