TwinfanAccording to AP at Goodwood, in the Henry Catchpole interview I think, the 9A2 engine is compliant with all known forthcoming emissions regulations so I don't think the January 2021 deadline is a hard stop for the new engine. Porsche have planned to use it for the next few years by the sound of it.
MotorheadRalph, Not sure why there should be a compliance issue with the GT4 but I think that Cayman (but not Boxster?) production has now switched back to Osnabrück, which could be affecting the availability of build-slots. Jeff
ralphmusic I also hear CoC delays are affecting GT4, but oddly not Spyder releases to customers.
Nick_USANo GT4 delays heard here Ralph. Just checked in with PC and my planned build date is still October 4th which is the same as I was told over a month ago.
ralphmusicJeff, The future for interesting personal transport modules does not look good. Neither do the prospects for European auto manufacturers. The € billions being invested in electric propulsion will be wasted because few will buy the vehicles. They are too expensive, have a shorter operating life than IC, are unsuitable for use in most of the world’s land mass, and rely on enabling infrastructure which is all political ambition and little action, whilst better technologies are being ignored. Going for a drive...
ralphmusic...and before I get in the car to drive, I should note that the 992 S numbers quoted in post #285 is PDK v manual in the 718 GT4. The latter engine being by today’s emissions standards uncompetitive and unimpressive so the prospect for performance enhancements may well be constrained by the need to comply with Euro 7, despite what AP asserts.
ralphmusic..enough of the future, aside from an RS of course. Anyone got one or been on PEC in one yet?
ChrisW......Depressed ? I feel so lucky to have lived through the last 50 years where the only way was up ... and there appeared to be no need to self flagellate.That isn't to say that I ever wasted ... but at least I felt able to enjoy what made me happy....
