The emissions sticker has to be lower right-hand edge of windscreen.

The sticker in that position looks green to me, so Euro 4 compliant.

They are issued by the plates/car, so at one point this thing probably had a diesel in it.


As much as I would love a 4.0L, this does not look like it. All the newer motors are Euro5/6. I'm back to thinking, if a GT4 ever comes, it will be nothing more than a 718 with 3.8 X51

The emissions sticker is correct and corresponds with the sample shown below.

It has a Euro 4 emissions sticker - i.e. the highest emissions sticker?

Surely if a company like Porsche changed the engine which meant a different emissions level they would get a new emissions sticker?

Well a 3.8L with Powerkit would be great as it really helps mid-range torque and keeps power higher up the rev range, not a boring engine.

And examples of blue stickers can be found... But my point is why would a yellow sticker be on a GT4 proto?

The caliper and rotor are a dead giveaway. The standard 718S Calipers especially the rear are much smaller than the ones depicted in this car.

That's what I thought, but someone corrected me and reminded me that the TTS still uses the 3.8L motor, so Porsche is still making it in at least some quantity.

So you think they put GT4 brakes on a 718 test mule? Why would they do that? Those calipers and rotors are definitely not 718S/GTS, nor are the wheels or the aero. It's definitely a mule but everything points to it being a GT4 mule.
