    It looks cool but this doesn't make sense:

    0-60mph in 4.5sec with top speed nudging 180mph.

    the current GT3 does 0-60 in 4.5 sec and 190mph?

    The regular Carrera (S, I suppose) has a top speed of around 187 or so. That doesn't make sense.

    The engine numbers make sense to me. If they could get 381 hp out of 3.6L (105.83 hp/L), it makes sense they could get 400 out of 3.8 (105.23 hp/L) very easily. If the info regarding increasing redline, I would expect to see 420 or so horsepower. That would be a real beast (as is the GT3 now)

    I dont know much abour Porsche (the company) or their history. But why do all their sports cars look the same?

    I mean Ferrari, you get a wide variety of looks. But outside of the CGT all their sports cars seem to be just slight variations of the last. Not complaining as its not a bad look, but I've grown "used to it".

    Which porsche sportscars look the same?
    The 911? :) It's just a SINGLE model, of course it looks similar in it's variations.
    Take a look at a 928, 944, 914. Do they look like a 911?

    Your right, none of those are in the same mold as the 911.

    Perhaps he could be referring to modern Porsches?? In that case, yes, they all look the same.
