I also remember reading that the GS output is 302kw as opposed to the 315kw GT version ( it revs out 500rpm less than the GT ) but the torque output is the same as the GT at 551nm. Besides, we all know how easy it is to edit the ECU and bump the tune so you get the GT engine for 12K less.
The 4 pot Brembo's are optional.

Me? I do track days frequently (almost monthly).

What's the point of a performance car, if you're not going to make use of it.
