Must apply for a job as designer at Porsche......working one day every 3 years appeals to me.
I really think the 4 cylinder will sound better than the current 6 cylinder, especially with a sports exhaust....I know the CLA45 AMG sounds amazing for a 4 cyl turbo, but the flat 4 has always had a different sound.

In any case, Porsche dealer told me the Boxster is going up but the Cayman will stay the same if not drop a couple, which will easily be chewed up in optional extras, no doubt

Every road test so far says it sounds worse but I like your optimism. :p

Since a six cylinder Boxster or Cayman with a sports exhaust sounds better than a GT3, the four cylinder has its work cut out.

Although it's not as good a sound as the 6. We must give credit where is due, they've done a relatively good job of polishing a turd in the sound department.

Do you really think so?  The old six sounds a bit juvenile especially on the over run, whereas the GT3 sounds menacing, not that I have first hand experience with either.

But as Looney says, they have to start somewhere and I have no doubt that it is a dynamically better car, and they will get it to sound better over time.

What do you think would be better (putting the WRX noise aside) Waiting for the new model, or getting one now?

That's a tough one. If the spec was good, I'd probably grab the current car but that's a hard call.
