Not sure why, but it looks like that link is dead now. Perhaps Porsche doesn't want any first impressions/insights into the 992 just yet? Doesn't make a whole lot of sense to me if they're singing its praises.

all that really matters to future buyers is out and that would be powertrains. we already know lower tier models will get an NA powertrain
as for higher tier models, turbos are said to be highly likely, meaning GT3 and GT2 ;)

I liked the whole idea of GT versions going forced because its an easier sell, at those tiers, customers just want high level of performance with no regard to how its done.

I don't think that's true. Once they go turbocharged that's going to mean more maintenance and then they will have also need to ensure that there is very little lag in regards to power delivery.

The difference is Porsche makes no commitment to be first.

View Porsche as the Toyota of premium performance automobiles, not the greatest example but the business motto has always been sustainable performance.

Porsche will maintain the flat six layout for as long as it is effective to do so. Since so many performance cars are moving towards hybrid layouts, it may be difficult for them to stay competitive without going turbocharged.

Fortunately being part of VW group gives them some leverage to continue making it, even if coming at a loss or barely breaking even.
