Despite the fact these are still road cars, in the context of a GT4, the 6 makes more sense to me. Personally, I'd be more interested in a turbo engine (4 or 6), as I buy these cars for street, not track. But the target for the GT4 is clearly Track Toy with a pair of capital Ts. Were I still in that market, I'd far prefer an NA engine making power high, rather than a turbo generating torque low. Just more fun which after all is what going to the Glen, Mosport or VIR is all about. That said, a sub 2800# 550hp turbo 4 Cayman with enough lag that you have to count to three would certainly be entertaining. Probably kill too many customers though... likely me.

Regardless, it will be interesting to see how Porsche manages the GTS vs GT4 performance envelope. Be a bit embarrassing, if slightly tuned CS/GTSs wind up blowing by new GT4s on back straights all across the country.

Wait a second. The Cayman has 2 speakers that are on the rear deck, astride the engine, but the Boxster has them placed behind the seats facing forward. At least they were that way on the 981. Is the 982 different?

The base audio in the 718 Boxster eliminates those speakers. Bose and Burmester upgrades retain them, IIRC.
