Oh, and let's not forget another aspect these two have in common: they're both pretty bad at accommodating people in the back.
You see, while the 992 Carrera's rear seats aren't exactly a place for adults, the GT3 badge sadly means these are deleted. As for the M8, well, the M badge won't change the fact that the upmarket transition from the 6 to the 8 Series still sees the rear cabin being cramped.
But let's not get caught up in the drawbacks here. After all, the Porscha and the Bimmer have a lot to offer.
For instance, the M8 family (think: Coupe, Gran Coupe and Convertible) will be animated by a twin-turbo 4.4-liter V8 delivering north of 600 hp in Competition trim and packing AWD (hopefuly, the M5's RWD-only mode will still be present).
As for the Neunelfer, this will be a member of the naturally aspirated sportscar endangered species (think: 500 horsepower), while its optional manual tranny will make sure the driver is fully immersed.
As far as the pricing goes, we can turn to the financial side of the outgoing 991.2 GT3 and the retired M6 Coupe for clues on the stickers attached to the new models – the first kicks off at $143,600, while the second used to come with a MSRP of $111,200.
