    Engine?  http://www.themarshalltown.com/next-generation-2019-porsche-911-could-get-audi-r8-540-hp-boost/19659

    Most inaccurate article I read for a very long time.

    Fact 1: 911 doesn't get a mid engined layout but the next Porsche sportscar platform can accommodate a mid engined layout as well, we discussed this before many months ago.

    Fact 2: The R8 with bi-turbo V6 will be based on the current R8, not the new platform.

    Fact 3: The new platform will be used for the next Huracan (and maybe R8...if there is going to be one) generation.

    Fact 4: The next gen (992) 911 Carrera will not get 540 hp. Ever. Also, the V6 bi-turbo stays a flat six engine. It is a Porsche "signature" engine for the 911. The R8 surely won't get a flat six. Smiley

    That would push more more and more towards McLaren , or consider Porsche to have become the new Audi . But then as well go for the original and get an R8 Smiley

    Re: 992

    I am getting really excited for the 992, so far all facts you state sound like great news to me kiss From the mules, it looks like they are going after a 993 look with those headlights and hood line.. I bet it will be a clean and sexy new 911. Maybe someday I could save for the 992 GTS since those seem such great deals and look stunning wink

    I'm not a fan of the current sport exhaust style. I really hoped they bring back the 4 pipes sport exhaust. Too bad surprise

     


    Re: 992

    The front fenders look as wide as the ones on the current RS !! The car will look good kiss

    The new design was something customers asked for. They (customers) wanted people to see what they paid for. Smiley Smiley I'm not a big fan either but it is OK. You need to get used to it though.

    Ouch. Porsche was lucky that the photographer didn't get better detail shots but one was definitely a 992 mule.

    Re: 992

    So I am sitting outside in Frankfurt at the top of the pedestrian zone having a beer (as one may do if in Frankfurt and work has finished on a Fri afternoon..). there is a crossing so cars need to stop for pedestrians and then they  start again. Allows one to listen to engine sound and exhaust sound from the outside. Couple of observations which are relevant for the 992 / Porsche please listen!!!

    - 991.2 sounds flat (and not the right flat like a flat six!). flat exhaust hum and no effectively discernible engine sounds 

    - Merc CLS63, G63, Jeep SRT, real and proper engine noise which just sounds good. Yes, I did write Jeep!

    please Porsche can you spend some time focussing on the sound of the 992, I know it will be a modified 991.2 engine but there has to be something you can do to free up the flat six....
