But I do agree that this 991 variant looks very similar to the 997
That's because it is a 997. Porsche don't usually put new bodies on their test cars.

You heard wrong. Officially, the 991 S will have 400HP, and the regular Carrera will have 350HP.

It won't be much slower, the current 9974S is only a tad slower than the 2wd variant.

You heard about the 997 GT3 RS 4.0. All those numbers are true for that car and production models will be delivered in the late August-September time frame. Kind of a final hoorah for the 997.

That might be true in 0-60 times but in the real world or on track they loose a quite a bit compared to the rwd brothers that you can notice not to mention the extra weight.
