What do the FR-S and BRZ have to do with anything?

There is a 6 cylinder non-GT Cayman/Boxster coming, no doubt about it. The real question is, where will it sit in the range...new model? GTS replacement?

Are you sure its not a GT? I thought they were calling it a GT4 Touring. Its all conjecture, with a few teasers from magazines so far. I mentioned BRZ/FR-S (low sales so far) because its a sharing project, like Z4/Supra.

Not sure of any specifics, but another 6cyl Boxster/Cayman variant that ISN'T the Spyder or standard GT4 is definitely in the pipeline.

And here are pics of one winter testing in Sweden.

This “mystery” 718 has the Sport Design covers and 19” wheels, not the bumper covers from the GT4 mules nor the 20” wheels.

This suggests to me that this mystery car is closer to an S/GTS than a GT4.

It’s all, of course, guesses now.

Hopefully the NA models still get center exhaust.

But I’m concerned that I have yet to see a mule with the tips in the center.

Split exhaust just looks so mediocre.

Plus NA models don’t even need the particulate filter.

Unlikely. Diffusers are "in"

Not likely. These new spy pics line up with the pics from a couple of months back. The side vents and exhaust are different from the GTS; however, it seems to have the GTS brakes, aero, etc. I'm guessing this will be new trim level between the GT4/Spyder and the GTS, just with ~400hp NA motor. That's not to say they won't still make a GT4 touring. That could be on the table too.

JAhmed,

Why are the diffusers part of the next Cayman/GT4 but not on the upcoming GT3 from the pics I’ve seen?

Or or is the GT3 also set to receive the diffuser?

I remember seeing some diffuser fins on the pics of the 992 GT3?

Could be that the diffuser has moved up a little bit and is harder to see in the pics. Might be using the same diffuser as the 911R/991.2 GT3?

One more thing I just noticed. Those are NOT the same brakes from the S/GTS. If you look closely, they look to be closer to the Carrera S brakes, which would make sense as another upgrade over the S/GTS trim.

718 S Brakes:



Test mule vs. 991.2S:
