Nice! Now will they put a version of this motor, in 4.0L form, in the next generation GT3 or GT3 RS too? I do remember hearing something about this engine being retired in favor of the 9A1 though.
My understanding is that this is the last itteration of the Mezger engine. The 991 GT3 will have some variation of the new direct injected engine. Again this is the rumor I heard from Porsche people. The price tag on this new 4.0 RS will be substantial. I considered it - still do - but close to $200K is just too much for that car, unless you are a collector.
