coops18That pic of the GT4 looking like signal yellow looks amazing......if only they did it in that colour!!
BJ InnesOh! I'll be keeping a sharp lookout! Be good to catch the testers for a chat at a Highland coffee stop.......... Brian
BJ InnesWell done AndrewP for snapping the GT4 and Spyder on the road and at Knockhill circuit. A perfect circuit to test the handling dynamics. Wish I had been there. Brian
ralphmusicInterior, more stitching than 981!
MotorheadAn ideal technical circuit to showcase the new car - which looks great and sounds good to me! What's not to like (apart from the rather hefty price tag maybe!)? I had a look at the video interview between Henry Catchpole and AP which threw up a few interesting snippets and is worth a watch. Like-for-like the new car is only about 30kg heavier than the 981 (heavier engine, GPF and additional aero parts), and there's confirmation that PDK is in the pipeline, as are other developments using the n/a 9A2 Evo engine. AP reckons the buckets seats are really the only "must-have" item, with no mention of deviated stitching..! Jeff
Motorhead...Note that the PDK transmission will add another 30kg, but we'll have to wait and see if Porsche use the latest PDK2 transmission which I believe is heavier than the series 1 unit. Jeff

MotorheadGiven it will give 7 or 8 reverse gears (being the wrong way roundAh! Yes that could be could be a slight problem Ralph, although Porsche are using it on the Panamera, so clearly ZF are able to provide variants. And if the next mid-engined Porsche is to be hybrid then it will become the unit of choice.

I thought the sports cars used one version and Panamera, Macan etc use one with a different internal arrangement. Ralph
