-9,000 RPM rev limit.
-Est. 1/4 mile as low as 11.0s flat.
-Only comes in PDK :thumbsdow but after they explained the revised PDK built specifically for this GT3, I'm not so bitter.
-Revised electronic steering for better feedback/feel

It was long speculated that the hp was going to be 450hp. 475hp from Porsche is a gift.

The previous gen was 435hp which was quick enough even in a straight line (11.8s/11.9s).
Due to the 50+hp bump new one is supposed to do 11.0s from 0-200km/hr! You don't need more than that acceleration-wise.

Andreas Preuninger, the Porsche Motorsports Manager, said that the 475hp is a very conservative figure.

Why do people still think peak HP numbers mean anything? Porsche > most anything else for the $$$$

I'm guessing it'll start somewhere around $130k-ish. But hopefully even in its "base" form, it won't be lacking things like HIDs, like the base Boxster and Cayman (and maybe even in the 911).
