Default Change the Carrera T 991.2 for the new 718 Spyder

Iím thinking about possibly switching up my Carrera T for the new Spyder if it will a NA 6 cyl, 6 speed, 4.0 l engine from GT3, hope it will have 9K redline

You do realize that a 718 Spyder with a GT3-derived 9k-reving NA flat-6 is going to cost $130-140k right? Porsche's are priced based upon a linear relationship with HP. (Yeah, there's a thread with a chart, etc.)

I haven't read Zeus993's thread link but I'll bet its full of folks who hope for the Sypder (and GT4) to have a 500hp 9k 4.0 for slightly more than the last GT4 cost. Not gonna happen.

Realistically speaking, the last gen Spyder and GT4 came with the same 385hp engine in the same gen Clubsport GT4. The new Clubsport GT4 will have a 3.8L with [email protected] BUT, I just read the 3.8L NA engine won't meet emissions standards....

So... probably just 718 2.5L turbo.

CJ unofficially posted in 718 forum it is a bigger displacement over the 3.8 L motor

Yeah the new GT40/Spyder will be sweet

The T is just going to be easier to drive. Gt4 will be raw. Go rent or find a 918! Example before you make a decision

Actually trying to decide between the Spyder and the 911T. The Spyder will most likely have a 4.0 naturally aspirated motor but it will not be the GT3 motor. We should hopefully know all by Geneva.

Two completely different cars. I choose to drive my T over my 991.2 GT3 about 90% of the time. It's just way more enjoyable for road driving. As for the Spyder, I have no interest as I'm not into verts. Good luck.

This! Spyder = summer canyon carver & alpine serpentine eater, T = versatile sporty allrounder, comfy enough for eating long distance Autobahn km at high speeds yet sporty on winding B-roads.

Here is my solution to the T vs. Spyder Dilemma :-)

And you have both for a little more than the cost of the new Spyder with ADM! Perfect combo.

Yes, this is a much better way to go.
