If this car every spawns a road going model (and I think that's a big if) the car will unlikely be a 911. Nowdays most Porsches look similar. The Panamera looks like a Cayman/Boxster, especially in the headlight and hood area, and the Cayman/Boxster look like the 911 in the rear window area. Even the Macan has a resemblance to the cars. And Porsche loves to invent new names for its models, like 718, which was as unnecessary as tits on a bull. After 50+ years, having a rear engined Porsche as the flagship vehicle may not be the best business tactic, especially when the parent company is writing checks for billions of dollars with no apparent end in sight... Yes, all those aficionados who can't afford real air-cooled 911s from the 70s, 80s, and 90s will want Porsche to continue to make a car with the engine in the wrong place, but I'd put money down that even Porsche will some day dump the rear engine design. They tried before and lost, but times, they are a changin'
