Good research but a perhaps a little too much PR
"Especially tuned Porsche Sport Exhaust with natural cabin amplification" - maybe you can clarify that rather than just lifting it?
That would be that the fake noise from the speaker bolted to the bulkhead is stronger?
You missed that the smaller rear disks from the turbo reduce the unsprung mass.
And you do realize that the car's Logo on the PCM and rev counter are (mutually) excusive on all Porsches? That's PR
words with no meaning.
I guess from the length or your post you are feeling a little insure on your choice? Drive it and enjoy rather than over analyzing how effective the marketing department was in convincing you.
First of all, I'm not "regurgitating PR
info". I'm trying to find facts to illustrate the difference between GTS and other models, plain and simple. And I thought it was necessary based on the uninformed comments all around regarding the GTS, like "the only difference is that it is 10mm lower, so you can do the same with $150 lowering links and save $12K!".
The logos info was only to indicate where the GTS moniker appears on this model. I don't recall seeing the "S" on the corresponding tach of the S. So that is the kind of uninformed comments I am trying to avoid.
And no, I am NOT feeling "insure" (sic). Perhaps you meant "insecure", which I am not feeling either. Actually I am extremely happy to have chosen a GTS, and that is why I wanted to research as much info as available on what makes this vehicle different.
And no, the marketing department was not convincing at all, as I did not get any marketing info at all before ordering the GTS. I simply read the specs and did pricing analysis comparing all 3 models and came out with the conclusion that for me the best option was the GTS.
Perhaps it is you who is feeling "insure" after reading that what you thought was only cosmetic changes on the GTS are not just so.
And by the way, the Macan DOES NOT have a speaker induced exhaust sound. It is naturally generated. The changes to the air intake and lower exhaust pressure help with the PSE sound naturally, which sounds quite different from an S or a Turbo. And by "different" I mean better.
