...I've been checking regularly for updates on both the GT4 and Spyder (primary interest is the GT4). I read everything on each version probably 10 times...LOL...I haven't seen anything recent with regards to updates on either...

Sounds like the 3.0L turbo flat 6 to me. Not the 4 pot but not NA sadly, unless my ears lie...

This video further reinforces my belief that both the Spyder and GT4 will be turbocharged flat fours. I just can’t see how Porsche would go back to a flat six after making an emphatic statement of intent by bringing back the 718 moniker.

Interestingly, when presenting Porsche’s 2017 annual financial report they said the strategy for the next ten years was to continue with a three pronged approach, incorporating optimised combustion engines, hybrid models and purely electric sports cars.

@porkey why don’t you use the emojis that are to the right of the advanced text/message box? I know there aren’t a lot of options but at least that way everyone should be able to see them
