I wouldn’t trade a 10th gen R for it, but the higher stiffness of the 11th gen body should allow some handling improvements. But the 130 lb weight gain is a huge concern. I’d love to see it tuned for 19” wheels but seems unlikely. I’d guess they’ll try to cut some weight somewhere.

The wheels on that test mule look identical to the 10th gen Sport Line, which has 19. If they're testing with 19" wheels, then it's likely the production will have 19".

I agree that any extra weight is a bummer unless it has a better PWR. I feel the 11th gen is more geared toward classic race tracks than tight twisties.

I like the fact the hood vent is like the Porsche GT line. Hopefully it will be very functional!

Where did you get the +130lb gain?
