:rofl: That Yaris ain't no slouch though. Hopefully it'll beat the Fiat! ;)

FWIW this car seems to be rwd :dunno:
It's running in the R-GT class.

The car will compete in the FIA's R-GT class, meaning it'll go head to head with cars like the Aston Martin Vantage, Porsche 997 GT3, and Fiat 124 Abarth. Its first test run is scheduled for this weekend, January 19th to the 20th, 2019, in Austria during a Porsche winter event. It will be piloted by WEC driver Richard Lietz. It will be ready to race by the start of the 2020 season.

Very nice, but honestly doesn't look very different from a 981 GT4.
Awwww this looks gorgeous. And .... it does look different from the 981 gt4.
You can see some minor exterior changes. I like the bigger intakes in the front bumper and the rear diffuser. The wheels looks awesome and thank goodness they didn't go CL like the other GT's.

Now that we’ve seen this in the flesh, I can see where Toyota uses some similar styling cues in the MKV. Of course the GT4 looks so much better.

Obviously, thats a matter of opinion (it looks so much better). I don't find these to be that attractive at all - porches, as a family of cars all look so similar that they end up looking alike, and there are so many of them in some areas, there is zero novelty about them. I lived in Toronto for 8 years, and, literally, there was a Porche at every stoplight, they seemed as common as a Honda Civic. For me that is a big negative. The new Supra is a much more appealing looking car.

Looking similar within car manufactures is a given across the board. BMW X1-X7 and 2-8 look the same. Toyota's and even Lexus' lineup all have similar exterior looks, same with Infiniti etc. Yes, Civics are common but the moment there is a clean JDM looking Civic, it'll catch your eye.

I still really like the way the 718 looks, but again, I don't see that much change. I bet most people would have difficulty identifying the differences between the two visually.
That's true Porsche fashion, like the .1 and .2's. It's minor exterior changes that Porsche heads will be able to spot the difference. The heart will be the one that will set the 2 apart. :drive:

Probably not double. My GT4 stickered at like 94k.
Nice, I was in the market for one a few years ago when I lived in NYC. Markups and demand was sending prices to 120k. Couldn't do it, and told myself I'll wait for the next come around. Hopefully the GRMN A90 would be a competitive cross shop against this car.
