I wonder what the engine weight of these is like ... The final figures are almost identical to the 3.6L Mezger. They almost could have just lifted and dropped that fukking thing in here and it would have been epic..er. Or why not the 3.8L?

Obviously greater issues like emissions, factory setup, etc. are keeping this from happening, but this car is clearly not driving the evolution of Porsches engines.... They could have had a big W from their enthusiast base by going with a classic.

In this class, I'd take the 981 Spyder... It's also one of the few cars which never depreciated in value.

You're right, it just had the 5 speed trans didn't it? And didn't have xenons

Anyway - excited to hear about first drives of le new GT4.
yeah, shitty headlights and stereo, don't forget it is an E36 afterall.

maybe the weight difference is a transmission that has a functional 3rd gear?

Standard color choices are a joke, would just go with GT silver and black leather

Why is the GT4 already on the configurator but not the T?

Cuz the GT4 buyer has been waiting for months/years for this and is willing to plunk down a deposit after like 4 minutes of thinking about it.


Also - for the price yes a 1.1GT3 is in there, but also a 7.2GT3. Thatíll be a tough one...
