Well, here's my humble opinion. I just traded my 2017 GTS in on a 2023 S. I will likely wait a year, but I will be selling my S to get back into a GTS. I had no idea.... I read where the S now has the GTS engine, so I thought it would be fine to go with an S. When I started the journey back home with the new Macan S, I immediately noticed my GTS had a much nicer, thicker steering wheel. Then I pressed on the brakes, and I thought something was wrong, it took a lot more pressure to stop. Because you can't find a GTS right now, I settled for an S. Don't do it! The extra $15K is well worth it.
