I really do like the 991S interior more. It doesn't feel as cheap and looks so much more modern. But I do like that the 997.2 has a handbrake, hydraulic steering, the shorter wheelbase that gives you that go kart feeling, and I love that I have the widebody with 2wd and centerlock wheels.
I believe Richard Hammond did the same. After seeing the 991, he went and bought a 997.2 GTS. The main reason being the steering. He says what made a 911 special is gone by the power steering.
