Assuming you were able to negotiate a 5% discount or better, and are paying mid-60's for your car, I'd say you have a very thoughtfully spec'd Macan S.

Given the duration you plan to keep the car, and the lack of performance options on your current S build, I would say don't get a GTS, and stick with your original S build.

All of us have seconded-guessed ourselves after placing a factory order. But usually, all is forgotten once you receive the car. In any configuration, it is a fantastic car.
Have a look at these threads for some insight on how good a bare bones Macan S can be:

Default THIS is What Makes The GTS Different-Alex C

Spent hours, days researching the right car for me. Going from a Honda Pilot and a Carrera C4 Cab down to one car. What shall it be? A Macan for certain, but which Macan? I had actually ordered a well appointed "S" scheduled for arrival in January. Second guessed myself on many occasions, did I make the right decision? I am extremely appreciative of the time Alex C took to explain why "I needed" the GTS rather than the "S" I had ordered. The standard items coupled with a few options sold me. Both cars are incredible automobiles, but each car, each option is driver specific in my opinion. I will be picking up my GTS is early December that was a dealer ordered car. Many thanks Alex C.

Congrats on the new GTS! Hopefully it I'll be here very soon. I'm glad my post helped you in your decision.

Cheers!
