Appeared to be some debate as to whether the GTS will have some 2016 production before we see the redsigned 4 cylinder turbos version...

For reference, I ordered a Cayman GTS PTS. Was expecting a MY2015, turns out there will be MY2016s produced, so I got an allocation for a MY2016 Cayman GTS, with PTS

goes into production last week of June
finishes production 3[SUP]rd[/SUP] week of July
leaves Germany 4[SUP]th[/SUP] week of July
arrives US 4[SUP]th[/SUP] week of August
arrives at the dealership 4[SUP]th[/SUP] week of August


<I'll tell my wife 3rd week of August>

Dealer had a GT3 in Mexico Blue - I got to see it in person before finalizing my order....pictures really cannot do it justice. I settled on Mexico Blue on the spot:
Land vehicle Vehicle Car Blue Cobalt blue Land vehicle Vehicle Car Automotive design Supercar


Mexico blue is an eye catching color, can't wait to see it.

Just awesome. If I were to order a car today it would be a GTS. Jury is out what model it would be (Boxster, Cayman, Carrera) as they all have their charm and merits but it would definitely be a GTS. Per-congrats!!!!!!

As of now I did the GTS Interior Pkg with Rhodium Silver deviated stitching (only 2 options red or silver). I am looking into whether I can do anything custom, hopefully at no cost as I am at my max.

I don't really have a desire to to matchy matchy blue trim, stitching, etc - not the look I am after.

Monkeyboy, what color interior stitching did you choose?

They are very easy to install. Only takes a couple of days to deliver to your door from the UK. I am very pleased with them on my 2014.

I'm strongly considering adding these to my GTS.
Do they have a noticeable effect on oil or water temperatures?

Guys there is are several threads on radiator grill guards including calculations how they may affect the temperatures. Search is your friend. Here are some threads to get you started:
