Lightbulb Porsche predictions

With the new spy shots of a GT3 cab, it seems anything is possible! Lets hear your wildest predictions for the future of Porsche cars and see if any materialize!

I'll start with my own crazy wild prediction:

The 4.0 NA engine from the current GT3 will be used as a base engine in the 992 platform's Carrera models

Don't take it too seriously, it all just good fun!

Although I still think its theoretically possible. Would it really make sense to shelve this engine right after perfecting it and only a half generation production run? How long was MEZGER in production?

Fixed it.

I predict that 918 & 919 technology will filter into "ordinary" Porsches sooner rather than later...T

I'm going to predict when the gas/electric/turbo/wind powered hybrids come out for the 911 GT cars everyone will freak out just like when water cooled cars came out. Then folks will realize Porsche doesn't make bad 911s and will buy them up with crazy ADMs just like every other good 911 out there.

911 will continue using turbocharged engines
Look at Ferrari’s latest patent. https://www.whichcar.com.au/news/fer...-of-the-future
