Sweet! Looks like a 718 GTS with a wing and new rear lower diffuser. Tail lights, nose, and side intakes all look like standard GTS gear. Interesting that it doesn't have the vent for a center radiator but does have GT4 wheels and brakes and it does have the wing but no extension to the spoiler underneath.....

That one looks like MT, so I wonder if (and hope that!) PDK will be offered?

Why would they use the GTS bits, to disguise it?
And why would they use the turbo version tailpipes and not keep them closer together like the current one and the GT3 ? Surely there's more room in the mid mount set up than rear engine GT3.

All this leads me to believe its a turbo.

I'm hoping for an NA PDK 718 GT4...if it's turbo I'm not buying, if it's only offered in manual I don't think I'm buying unless it's really better than my GT4.

To me, the the larger intakes and split tail pipe arrangement (like 991.2 Carreras) indicate Turbo. I hope I'm wrong.

The plates are mule plates (I'm local to the ring), and that wing kinda looks like CS wing. The 718 rear end is fugly.

I prefer your car. Just can’t get used to that badging, or the plasticky intakes.

And know all that I am eating my (sales guy’s) words from a few days ago that there might be no 718 GT4. This definitely seems to be one!

^ looks the same to me...(I'm hung-over from last nights Canes win). So I might be seeing CS wings everywhere.


Honestly, based on the fact that it still has to logo on the back, I would say it's a Aero/Motor test car and nothing more. NOT a GT4.


*edit... LOL.. I can't believe nobody has seen the give away as to what this car is...LOL


A German will pick up on it QUICK.

Hmmm... to say that one is "fugly" and the other beautiful bespeaks a finer and far more granular appreciation of the subtleties of beauty than I apparently possess.

There is a LOT of GTS in that, but that would be an efficient starting point for a mule - use something currently rolling and mod it with your new parts to prove the design and measure for install fit and form.
