In praise of the 997 GTS
dear Sir, Very happy to see the 997 GTS feature in the April 2018 issue. I own a Carrera 4 GTS, acquired in November 2017. I named her Helga. It’s my first 911, and I am very glad I waited many years for it. I can’t compare it to other 911s, but I did test drive a 991 C4S at Silverstone, which wasn’t bad, but I prefer the 997 in terms of aesthetics. The 991’s bum is rather large for me, but Helga is just perfect. Driving her is an absolute dream. Your comment about brake corrosion is spot on, especially around winter. I will be taking her to Wales and Scotland soon. She will love it!
I believe the 997 GTS will be a future classic. My dream car was a 964, but I am very happy with Helga. She won’t be sold – at any cost. adebanji alabi I’m so pleased our 997 GTS feature resonated with you, adebanji. the 997 GTS is an absolutely cracking car and a surefire future classic. Great to hear you’re having fun driving the car, as we’re sure we’re seeing less 911s on the road day-to-day due to rising values. do keep us posted on your porsche story, particularly your Wales and Scotland trips!
