Neither motor currently has Ti conrods (nor dry sump) - that is reserved so far for the higher revving 4.0 in the GT3/RS/Speedster. Porsche has said these features could potentially be added to the...

Yes, the Carrera RS needs a 50th Anniversary tribute, but certainly nothing like the Sport Classic. The 997 car was all cosmetic and had relatively mundane mechanicals compared to other cars in that...

Not that it resolves all your concerns, but for the record, the growth from 3.0 to 4.0 was done by increasing both bore and stroke.

First of all, that motor is a 4.0L, not 4.2L. Yes, it will be used in other cars (like 718-6 versions of Boxster and Cayman). And it could be used for the next 911T (with more torque, since the 911...
