I was all for turbo cars, i guess until they were everywhere. And NA engines have come a long way. I am shopping sports car and absolutely 100% will not consider a turbo charged car. If the m4 had something like the GT350 engine, i'd own one right now.

one thing i think being overlooked is that 981 caymans will also drop a bit. There are alot of 981 owners who refused to buy a 4 cylinder 718 and held onto their baby. Now they have a chance to get a new 6 cylinder car. People who tried for an allocation of a GT4 and Boxster spyder and didnt get it will also look at the GTS.

There is definitely going to be a fire sale on 718s though lol.

The big lazy 6.2l in my Corvette has turbo like qualities with a broad torque band without the lag. But of course since everyone likes to complain, the issue with the 6.2 is the relatively low redline. Who cares when it makes 460hp and 465tq?
