Something isn't adding up here. How did the first gen GT4 lose weight, and this one gains 300 lb? It's the same platform underneath (981), and the turbo 4 cars aren't lighter than the 6s that came before them.

Will be a collectors item. Last gen before electrification.

Naturally aspirated, too. 8k RPM redline. If only I had a spare $100k burning a hole in my pocket...

Looks great. One hell of a car. 100k price point is crazy.

Whenever these new things come out, I am exactly the purchase price short of cash that it would take to buy one.

A drop top with that 4.0L screaming to 8k rpm behind my head ... Spyder for me, though it'll be a tough choice.

Meh, guess I'll just settle for a GT3 touring
