‘14 Turbo 65k miles vs ‘15 4S 35k miles - similar options and condition.

The Turbo will stretch the budget a bit at +$500 a month - considering the mileage and cost, what should I choose? Go for the Turbo or stick with the 4S?

Thanks!

Always buy what is within your budget. You will need the extra $$$ for maintenance, tires, and go-fast parts. That being said, as one who had a turbo then sold it, drove an NA for a while, then sold it for another turbo... The turbo drug is hard to give up.

Good points / ideas - forgot to mention I’d be using this as a daily driver in the Northeast ~250 miles a week...

Have you driven both? If not, get the Turo app. Rent someone's car for the weekend and get to know the driving differences between the two.

Turbos are incredible, but I'd go with the 4S, particularly in light of your budget, and the fact it'll be a daily. My experience with turbos is that people are more likely to have driven the crap out of them. KC is right, there will be associated expenses. From a purely emotional perspective, you can't make a bad decision. They are incredible cars!

It just occurred to me to ask whether you've owned a Porsche before...

Oh and make sure you pay to have a thorough PPI done at a reputable Porsche shop... not necessarily a dealer.

You don't need a Turbo as a daily driver; overkill
