In praise of the 997 GTS

Total 911 - - Views -

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!
