Glad I've got my "6 cylinder" CGTS on order already -- the last of the 981's,... hmmm...The article said the engine sizes were 2.0 and 2.5L -- but the outputs say forced induction. Maybe Porsche will record the 6 cylinder sounds and pipe it into the 718's cockpit since the turbos will surely mute the exhaust sound!
Really, the article just restates the previous rumors, but new is the "719" nomenclature
IMO, they need to make a cheaper model to make the 911 stand out more. Right now 981 and 991 are too similar, but cost way too differently. Once you get to the GTS trim, many potential 991 buyers are like 'why bother.'
Think its a agreed that the next generation will be a v4 turbo that will have to do 300+ HP/torque. Highway MPG will rise to 33+ and 0-60 will be less than 20. I'm sure the price will be similar to the current model, but it will be advertised more of as entry level model and buyers will be pointed at the 911 (also probably made cheaper) as the step up. We'll see... i might even get one.
RIP flat NA v6. They hit the bottleneck and the 3.8 engine is as good as it gets. As far as I'm concerned, a turbo done right like BMW is transparent and enjoyable.
