It’ll be PDK so I think they’d give some more torque but not loads still.
As for peak power @450ps, as you say tuned 981 GT4 are not far away, and modded 718 4.0 can achieve that also with not too much work.

Of course ... if you have the particulate filter from new must it be retained in the after-market ?

In countries where cars are supplied with GPF/OPF/PPF, the car must run them to be road legal.
But there aftermarket options for Hi-flo GPF, that retain road legality and TüV. E.g Cargraphic.

GPF/OPF/PPF deletes option make the car non-road legal in countries that require them.

New air intake. Looks pretty much ready to me! Anybody know anything about launch date?

I'm interested to see where the performance stack and for what price.

Summer release for production start late this year was the word on the street a few months ago. Not heard any other estimates since.

Interesting that this mule is not on Center Locks again... most of the very recent shots and vids up to about 2weeks ago show with Center Locks.

If that's the finished article i love the way it looks; much more than the 992GT3. Its the only new Porsche i'd consider selling my RS WP to get one. Looks really mean in Black and still my preferred colour on this as was on the RS.

Yep, although given the reg number (which I recognise from earlier spy shots) I think this is an early mule with some later parts e.g. air intake which is more finished than it used to be.

Unless centrelocks are part of an optional Weissach pack?

I thought that before but in reality that would be odd for them to do... and very very costly.
Ultimately they'll go on way or the other...whether WP or 'casual' RS.

Those vent look very big for an extra 20 hp! 500HP? 110-115k ?

In the 718 CS MR they aren't there for extra power directly - they are there for additional cooling... or rather air drawn from the location is consistently and more reliably cooler, so power is maintained when running in traffic in a race in a hot location, rather than getting knocked back by the ECU due to getting too hot and maintaining safety.
The difference in IATs is significant between the regular side rocker inlet location (which gets all the hot air expels from the front of the car and the wheel wells) and the upper window inlet location - which gets clean cooler air all the time.

The extra vents on the 991 RS only contribute to an extra 20hp in that car... so why should 718 RS be more?

I'd be totally surprised if they gave the sub GT3 718 GT4 RS the same power as the 992 GT3... whilst being around 100KG lighter.

But if they do it... well... wow.

Got a funny feeling the Centre locks will be part of a 'WP' which would be cool!

Have to say im looking forward to the 4RS more than my incoming 992 GT3...

The GT4 RS won't get anywhere near 500PS. My guess is 450PS, 30 more the GT4 which is as much of a gap Porsche have ever done on any 911RS over its GT3 sibling.
With regards weight the standard 718GT4 PDK weighs 1450Kg and i can't see the RS much below this. It'll match the 1435Kg of the 992GT3 PDK at best IMO.

Those numbers would be my best guesses too
