  2. Re: C6 Corvette has far superior handling than any Porsche

    Where I live, 911's with PDK's, the tops down, and older, balding drivers in plaid shirts and no socks, also fit that bill. :beer:

    Re: Random thoughts on GT4

    I'll be surprised if the Cayman 6 is even called a Touring GT4. More probably it will be a NA6 option for a Cayman and/or Cayman GTS.

    Hoping it's announced soon, so I can weigh it's attractiveness...

    Have patience.....there will be a Cayman 6 offered, if not this year then next, and for the reasons you state. Porsche won't want to cannibalize GT4 sales. :cheers:

    Re: Why I'm not ordering a 718 GT4

    I may slide back my early GT4 position, to see what the probable 2020 Cayman 6 looks like. It might be a GT4 Touring alternative, and may even come with PDK, not that I want it.

    If you want to shell out another $12K or so, and wait a lot longer for delivery (+6 months, maybe), yield to the screams :drivingskid:

    Two thoughts:

    1. The 718GT4 has zero chance of being a flat turbo 4. ZERO!!! :crazy:
    2. I'm gonna be driving the GT4, so I really don't care how it sounds to some guy hiding in the weeds....

    Re: 718 GT4 - Success or Failure?

    No matter what, the 718GT4 will be a "success", if you define that as everyone will be sold, probably at MSRP, if not more.

    ....and that's how Porsche defines it. :drivingskid:
