It might change those prices. But I wonder how many will dump their current GT4 for a car that really has no hp advantage and weighs 60 pounds more? It is 10 seconds faster, but that's a long track and tire tech has improved a lot over the last 4 years.

From what I read on the Porsche forums it still has that same long gearing issue. Wonder if they intentionally do it on purpose so it doesn't step on the 911's toes ?

seems like most of the guys on rennlist are waiting or a GT4RS
Well it's based off the 718 chassis and does have 414hp compared to the 385hp the 981 has...the aero has added significant downforce. It is a better all around car especially if they fixed the strut tower issues.

I'd love to see the numbers with the same tires and same driver just to see how much better the 982 vs 981 is around the ring.

That being said, I'd still rather save $30-40K and just buy a slightly used 981 version.

Although if money was no object I'd take the new one for sure.
