Hello everyone. Yes, I'm still the new guy on the block but wanted to share some of the latest "rumors", presumed "factual", based on inside information. Anyone who follows Rennlist knows what I'm talking about BUT for those who don't, thought you might enjoy some more teasers regarding the 2019 GT4. First and obviously foremost. Definite GT4 2019. RS version not approved yet, but still a possibility at some point but many seem to doubt that it will actually transpire. 4.0 liter NA flat 6 powered (read non turbo)! HOWEVER, NOT THE GT3 ENGINE! Supposedly the previous 3.8 liter monster will be stroked to 4.0...with 420 hp! PDK still rumored a possible option (mine will be equipped with a manual transmission!). Predictions for announcement are all over the place. Some say as early as October in Paris, others as late as Geneva, spring 2019. Since clubsport versions, I believe, are supposed to be ready to race early next year, and as many of you are aware, have been testing at least at Monza, perhaps a reveal towards the end of the year? This is one area no one seems to agree upon. Regardless of how these "rumors" play out, the second generation GT4 will be a phenomenal evolution of the first generation, building upon the already remarkable characteristics of the current 718 platform. The mid engine Cayman and it's sister Boxster, have been and continue to be, perhaps two of the finest sports cars ever produced, regardless of marque or price. A near perfect balance of size, performance and handling. A true drivers car. Poor mans Porsche?... I don't think so. Everyone, particularly the doubters, should feel so "impoverished"! I'll keep you all up to date on my 2019 GT4 "lock in" as soon as it's given the "official" green light!
