I had a 997 turbo PDK and a 997.2 GT3 (not RS) and the backseat is useless so lets pretend its gone like in the GT3 & RS. Also the active suspension really doesnt help that much and theres the exact same interior space and minimal trunk space. The turbo does have a bit more grunt around town and can get on it easier without being noticed as its dead quiet. Im not sure I could daily a 911/991 variant of any sort since I like having a trunk and the inside is cramped. In fact I picked up my GT-R after the PDK turbo and thought I would DD it the most because of the large size inside and large trunk. At nearly half the price I couldn't care about depreciation and mileage as much. I don't DD the GT-R, but I do try to drive it the most often of all my cars. My current DD is a 335 sedan or the X5. I am definitely holding out for the new M3 sedan as the daily replacement. I suppose there are many people who DD a Porsche and GT-R, but god that must be exhausting at the end of the day if you commute much more than 15 miles or run errands middle of the day. I typically get in and out of my car at least 10 times a day depending on meetings, stops, lunch, gas or market etc. Just kind of an idea since I have tried it with both similar cars. I did consider a basic 991 for a daily though. The price wasn't too step and most the time I could never use the turbo around town anyways. However, all logic went out the window and I got the GT-R lol.
I have never had a 911 turbo, though I did test drive the new 991 C2S. I think I can DD that car. I do not use the trunk too much but living in Omaha I would welcome AWD. I thought the turbo will be a nice choice. Of course I dont know how well it will ride, but cant imagine it worse than the GT3RS. I do not DD the RS mainly because it draws too much unwanted attention. And thats the thing, having a nice car in the garage that you use only rarely is just not fun. The RS is my track car, but this year I made it out to our local track (MAM) only 5 times for half a day. So I would like to have something nice for DD.
