Has anyone seen any info yet as to what they have done with the gear ratios?  Just wondering if they have addressed the 981 problem.

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

A well specified four cylinder 718 Cayman S plus on road costs would cost about the same as a six cylinder 981 Cayman GTS.

At a choice between those two, I'd pick the GTS every time.

This anonymous clan of slack-jawed troglodytes has cost me the election, and yet if I were to have them killed, I would be the one to go to jail. That's democracy for you. - C Montgomery Burns.

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

Especially after seeing that black GT4 at Goodwood with Straight pipes! It sounded like a cup car!

So will this 718 affect the price of the GT4's??

Porsche have already said 718 GT4 will retain 6 cylinder engine so probably not.

Hopefully it has a turbo too!

Allegedly the 6 Turbo won't fit the mid engined chassis, so yeh, what engine. Surely not a tweaked 4 T?
