I'd like to have that engine, but otherwise, I didn't see anything much different than my modified 986.

It looked like that rear toe link cannot be adjusted for bump-steer the way it is attached to the upright.

Needs more power... If we can build a 9a1 into a 4.2 L beast, why won't they?

Porsche can't have it competing with the GT3!

Yeah, well they are 400ccs, and 70HP behind.

Funny thing is the GT4 that was first unveiled is almost a carbon copy of Cayman X aesthetically. Same color, and all.
