For what it is it is marvellous,but I can think of 4 possible reasons,
1.It is not a 911
2.Carrera GTS has rear occasional seats.
3.CGTS you can get 4WD
4.It does not have PDK,the PDK really is superior to the manual,I drove one 2 months ago .{Cayman S]
Here in Canada for GT4 and C4GTS the difference is $50,000 [100K-150K]
