Anyway, I totally get that some people just don't want to spend that much on a 4-cyl if only because it's a 4-cyl, and adding a 4.0 6 is a great option to have for people that want the car to be 6-cyl or to be N/A. The 4.0 will absolutely sound better and have better throttle response to boot. But talk of the 718 being terrible because it has 2/3rds of the motor from a 911 Turbo is farcical, and I'm guessing this new GTS will be slower than the old one in a few metrics, especially against cars with PDK.
Incidentally, I had a lot of heart burn about going with PDK, but now I'm gla as this car being 6MT only should hopefully save at least a little of the value that would otherwise be lost.
What mods are available for the 4 banger now? I wonder what you can do with them.

Is this offered with PDK?
My next one was going to be a used 911 cab (991.1) with PDK but I like the size of the boxster better.
Huh, I'm really liking the sound of this. Looking fwd to more details.

As a former owner of a 981 GT4 I like the GTS 4.0 concept a lot and was thinking I might put an order in, but I'm a sucker for 911. Should have ordered a 991.2 T when I had the chance :-(

My plan was to do M5 and 991.2 GTS (and 69 Camaro) as my garage over the next 2 years. Maybe M5 and the 718-6 compliment each other better? It'll be like my father in laws 986S with my Camaro 396s power. Then add headers and a great titanium exhaust and bring tissues.
