So I guess I missed the very latest on turbocharge vs. NA. Is conventional wisdom now that the RS will for sure be turbocharged?

Sure doesn't sound like a turbo. And PDK is the only 'box that changes that fast!

They tested both. Expected to be NA. Most likely last one to be NA due to fuel economy rules and that we've reached the limited of NA.

Surely going to help maintain the value of the 991GTs if they are the last of the high revving NA motors from VW.

It will be NA. I read some where yesterday that they were watching and listening when it did that time and they said it was NA for sure.
