While nothing else except the trademark is official yet, if Porsche does decide to give the model the green light, we’re going to have a hard time guessing the model it will be applied to. You see, so far Porsche’s GT division, which is led by Andreas Preuninger, used the carmaker’s extensive motorsport experience to bring track-ready, street-legal models. Nonetheless, as racing fans know, there’s no such thing as a GT5 racing class.
Returning to the 911 facelift, if the GT5 moniker is destined for the Neunelfer, this will most likely be a naturally-aspirated machine. That’s because while all the other 911 are going turbo, the GT models will remain on the atmospheric side of the range.
While certain voices claim the GT5 moniker could be used for a four-door Porsche model, we find it difficult to believe this, at least if the vehicle will be released on the short term.
Porsche’s GT division is currently working overtime, with the arm introducing one special model after another. This means they already have an uber-tight prioritisation process, with the company’s sportscars obviously being at the top of the list.
