Now, a brand-new report claims that Porsche is hard at work on this project, which is internally codenamed the 717, and it passed on some information regarding its status. The source of this info is kept under wraps, so it is tough to determine exactly what information is actually from the source and exactly what info Car pulled from thin air. Offering Porsche’s love of secrecy, I am leaning toward the majority of Car’s information being pure speculation. That stated, I put in the time to arrange through all of it and pull out what I thought was on the mark, and add in some speculation of my own on the 717.
