    Re: 718 Spyder

    Or is a flat six muted by particle filter + new noise regulations ?

    It does sound more Subaru than 911... but hey, let’s keep hoping indecision

    Re: 718 Spyder

    Since the 718 GT4 appears to sport the same exhaust configuration as the Spyder I guess we know which engine that is too now...

    Re: 718 Spyder

    I said so few months ago smiley... it is going to be a vaccum cleaner. another version of the GT4 might come later in very limited numbers and badged RS. but this is the deal for the moment, turbo angry

    remember, they can't kill the turbo engine they just introduced and it is selling well.

    the message would be terrible to put NA and of course homologation which could limit the selling time of the car.

    I saw the GT4 testing in Portugal and did not sound like that spyder at all, so it's all a bit weird.yes

    Had a drive in my spyder today. This sound has definately nothing in common with my atmo spyder.

    Re: 718 Spyder

     It sounds like a flat 4 turbo in this latest video but it's not long enough to be conclusive.

    How could the Spyder get a B4T when the GT4 is rumored to get the detuned GT3 engine?

    They know that they car get away with it on the Spyder? Smiley The Spyder is no GT car.

    I still think it is going to be the biturbo 6 cyl. engine from the 991.2 Carrera but I have no new information sorry.

    Re: 718 Spyder

    Good to see this test car is fitted with a much better front bumper than the Sport Design/GTS one on previous mules.

    Smiley It`s almost comical . Maybe Porsche is testing a new noise cancelling device to mask the real nature of the engine?



    Re: 718 Spyder

    The sound clip was identical to my previous .2 C2S w/ PSE.

    Sounds like a Turbo 6 to me.

    Are they testing how slowly they can lap the Nurburgring? Smiley

    It looks like they were lapped by a Toyota RAV4... Smiley

    Sound turbo for me!

    Re: 718 Spyder

    The question is B4T or B6T? I assume the latter.

    or a (far-fetched) muted N/A with particle filter?

    Re: 718 Spyder

    Sounds like the F6T ro me no?


    Re: 718 Spyder

    Might there be several versions like the old RS60 and a 'normal / real' spyder with different engine configurations?


    Re: 718 Spyder

    Hey! My RS60 is real! A really nicely optioned Boxster S...

     


    Re: 718 Spyder

    Oh, the suspense....

    In the meantime methinks the 981 version will suffice. It will be a real disappointment if the new one is anything other than NA.
