The HP and weight difference between Spyder and GT4 are extremely marginal. Practically, a non-factor. The specs' tolerance would be higher.

Thanks for passing on the info, Nick. If there has never been a failure in Spyders, then we may not see any movement, regardless the tranny is the same. There got to be something different; if not...

Good point. Since US cars aren't gonna have particulate filters, some tricky de-tuning could be in store. Could this also mean, gearing would remain high?

8k redline is a big news! Thanks Juli for the awesome news! Could this mean the engine size to be 3.8? A 4.0 at 8k could be making more than 420 hp? Personally, I would prefer 3.8 since it would be...

Actually, not a bad idea! If you can disregard the sound (I can't), a GTS is a great ride. Personally, my vehicle collection road map is already defined for the long term; a GTS is not in the mix....

Hope you're right, Nick. But, how many posts have we seen that bemoan the manual top that us Spyder aficionados love? A lot! Even some of the present Spyder owners would jump ship given the...

I don't think Porsche thought a turbo-4 would be cheered and successful. It is widely accepted that it is an interim step toward electrification. However, if a new model does get a NA 6, I would...

Interesting development, if comes to fruition. It'll be more sought-after than the Spyder since most people can't stand the manual top. If it is slotted between GTS and Spyder, then it sure will move...

It is badly twisted that the PDK has lower gearing than the MT! If anything, MT should have tightly stacked (at least lower 3), short throw setup. Sometimes, I fail to understand the rational, if...

Yes, the gearing IS tall! It frustrates the hell out because when you wind it up, the soundtrack is super cool! But, winding up means, you're at 82 (mph) in 2nd! The third tops at 116. If you get...

Thanks. After posting that question I realized that drilling holes through the rotors will impact the structural integrity. Road cars wouldn't see as much stress.

Is there a reason rotors aren't cross-drilled as in road models? I suspect cross-drilling helps with channeling away the water in wet conditions. Probably there are heat dissipation benefits too....

True. But, could they have made a version of 3.8+X51 that can take pump gas? After all, that spec was in production for 991.1 GTS. Making them to comply for current regs could be a different matter.

When the street models are announced, we'll know why they chose not to use a single engine spec across the range (assuming there is a variation). I speculate it could be due to emissions regs. As is...

True. His only contention is that the street model's engine can be different from race, which seems likely. However, wrong about the specifics, which aren't public info anyway.

On the GT4 thread, Chris3963 posted that the street version will have completely different engine. He is well connected; and, often right. So, will it be a 4.0 NA or turbo 4? The word "completely"...

One of the advantages of PCCB is lack of brake dust. If you switch the rotors to Brembo or Girodisk, as a replacement, would you lose that advantage?
