718 4.0L engine will be around for a few years

So says the piece above. I imagine the car may well get refreshed or redone into another gen, but I love the idea of the engine sticking around. Either because it may be long enough to convince me to do something stupid, or at least because there may be enough sales to keep resale reasonable to be able to afford a used one.

Probably won't happen - but it would be cool if Porsche used this engine in the next generation of "Carrera T". They've already spent the development costs, so why not use this engine in a 911 variant as well.

At this point, I'm almost coming to terms with the idea that the next gen Boxster will be some hybrid, non-MT car. I still hope that the next gen GTS or Spyder versions will exist in H6 NA+MT variants, but if they don't, as long as at least there is a 911 (T or similar) version, I may have to consider it.
