    Not the GT3 engine then. It makes sense because else the price would have to be increased substantially (compared to the predecessor). At least it's staying NA kiss

    What about the Spyder ? Does it get the same engine again?

    Let's see... I hear the GT4 is confirmed with 4.0 litre Porsche motorsport engine, so that may provide a good indication, along with the RSR win at Le Mans! kiss

    Well, he certainly has more information about the GT4 than I do. Smiley

    That information is no longer correct since my visit to Weissach.

    When I was told 4.0L, I had automatically assumed it was the Motorsport engine as that's the only 4.0L Porsche had as that time.

    But it would seem the GT4 will have the existing 3.8L enlarged to 4.0L instead, 420HP. The Motorsport 4.0L will goes to the GT4RS. IF it ever comes to market. 

    The 420HP 4.0L engine will also be in the next GT4CS, which will come in 3 versions, a base spec track car, a trophy spec for spec racing and a SRO homologated version for IMSA and International racing.

    If the same motor will be in the GT4 CS, including a homologation version for IMSA and International racing, that certainly sounds like a naturally-aspirated Porsche motorsport engine...  image.gif

    Not really. The old 3.8L has already been race tested being inside the current GT4CS, and it's bullet proof. No one has any engine trouble for all of 2 seasons. But the ABS system is on the other hand a different story. It gets confused easily.

    992 has a particulate filter, still 6-cyl. boxer engine though. No 4-cyl in the 992, thank god.

    Regarding McLaren and the Carbon tub and Porsche: Porsche seems to think that the weight advantage isn't essential, they try to cope with the weight using a different approach, incl. the mild hybridization which apparently seems to boost performance as well.

    I admire McLaren a lot for their light weight approaches but I think Porsche is also under pressure to keep high gain margins per car, so... Smiley It would be interesting to take a peek at the gain margins of McLaren and Porsche, I mean the ones we won't going to see or learn about (there are only guesses...I think).

    I can't see the non-GT cars using a CF tub. They are anyway not in the same league as McLaren hence pointless to compare. The GT cars maybe, but pricing will surely be different then.

    Carbon tubs are difficult to produce in the quantities required for 911 sales and still far more costly than the traditional pressed steel floorpan method used by Porsche. They also transmit more noise into the cabin which would be unacceptable to most 911 buyers.


    Re: 992 (Next 911 generation 2018/2019) Thread Closed

    Alfa made Carbon tubs for the 4C. If Alfa can do it on such a car in this price tag, I don't see why Porsche can't in a higher price tag.


    Re: 992 (Next 911 generation 2018/2019) Thread Closed

    The 4C is low volume and not cheap at all for what you get (the engine for example is 1.7 four-pot engine) unless you buy it second hand.

    appreciate all the great info on the 992!

    curious if anyone knows what the 992's weight distribution will be and if they will move the engine "forward" like Porsche did with the 991?  (I read "the engine was moved  ~7cm forward in the 991 from the 997")

    thanks!

    Dallara made the tubs for the 4C. Only works with small volumes.

    Having said that - who made BMW’s i3 shell? Or do they just sell them as a loss-leader.?

    Even more than potential repair issues, the CF tubs I am aware of all have a fairly wide door sill that one has to slide over to reach your seats, part of maintaining the strength needed.   OK for a supercar-style experience but not in the DD use of a 911.  McLaren made a big deal about reducing the height of this sill in their 570 series, but it is still much more prominent than in a normal car that does not use CF.

    Compared to 911 production, R8/Huracan production is just a novelty item.

    Plus, the 911 shared the platform with Cayman/Boxster, so the production numbers are even higher.

    Porsche doesn't want to admit that but it's the truth. It's why the 2 series of cars can be made on the same line and it's so easy to convert the RSR into a mid engine car.

    we could dream for just a part of the 911 production to be produced with carbon tube.

    In the spirit to differentiate the usual models and 718 lines with the most exclusive 911s ( Turbo & S and GT cars) yes

    but will not happen. indecision
