    Before you get too excited note Porsche has a 718 rally car built by Porsche to compete under FIA R-GT regulations for the 2020 season. This is in addition to a GT4 Clubsport for the roadcourse. The good news is Porsche is utilizing the GT3's naturally aspirated flat-6 in the 718 Cayman chassis in multiple applications meaning a street car is likely. This essentially gives factory credence to all those GT3 flat-6 into the 718 Boxster/Cayman rumors. Treat these cars like a demo for a street GT4 with the same powerplant. Porsche more or less confirms that this rally car is based on a GT4 Clubsport: Would Porsche invest in two 718 variants for racing without a street version to parlay all that development into? Doubtful.

    Don't think it's worth $500 but pretty good. Extremely smooth both nose and after. Need to revisit as I had a few Nikka before this one last Sunday.

    Oh, I know about the TTRS. Those cars and the RS3s are ridiculous. Sometimes I want to get rid of my n54 for an Audi or newer Bimmer. But as fast as software and technology is changing, there's no point in having the latest and greatest. I can wait as the N54 is still improving as R&D continues.

    on the awd rwd debate there are some rwd cars that have been engineered well enough to put power down on the rear on the unprepared street on stock tires, the Mercedes GT comes to mind, if they can do it, why can’t anyone else

    Right so cops will walk around with DB meters? Reving an engine not underload is quiet in comparison to load. Whole thing is dumb... That being said in MA it is written as you cannot modify exhaust to be any louder than factory. No decibel limit is given. So, it is even worse. You can't fight the ticket basically.

    I was able to take my 135i to Road America, which has always been a dream of mine. I abused the car and had so much fun! This was my first time doing anything like this and I didn't have an instructor so be easy on me :scared-eek:

    Sticky you are a DCT sellout lol. So this or GT350? Honestly i would pick the GT350. I do agree though the GT500 is one impressive machine on paper.

    Our TTRS does 100-200 low 5's (60-130mph in 6.0s flat) on the stock turbo with E50/meth tune and IC/DP/inlet upgrade. These cars are very fast. This week the Pure Stage 2 turbo upgrade is being installed on it!
