For this I'd give up my 981 GT4. The others, not so much.

Its a 4L in four HP configurations.
  • 370-380hp Boxster/Cayman 6...yes, that is what its called, 718 Cayman 6.
  • 425hp GT4 manual only
  • 485hp GT4 RS late 2020 or early 2021. PDK only. Very limited car
  • And somewhere in between they will squeeze a special Boxster Anniversary with possibly 450hp.
Excuse my ignorance but what is RT??

Anyway, AFAIK, they are very, very close.

Wow, talk about slicing the onion thin. If true, I bet this means the GT4 is going to get expensive. The Cayman 6 will slot above the GTS and the GT4 above that so bring your wallets folks.

A UK magazine is promoting the GT4 being released in the UK? No way!

Yes it would be (or better?), but I bet that it ends up being more expensive than a GT3 too - that's how they'll get around the whole hierarchy thing. They'll throw carbon fiber at it until your eyes bleed at the price...and they'll sell all of them!
