Typs 994 and 995 have already been used

See -> https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Porsche_type_numbers

My guess would be 992.2 in about 3 years time, followed by the 998.

The Boxster/Cayman number is always 10 less - in which case, the new 911 number cannot ever be a 999 (apart from sounding strange), because there was a 989 (in 1989).

There is a possibility for a 998/988, though I assume it didn't come after the 997 maybe due to a legal reason with Ducati Dont know

Strangely enough, the Ducati 996 was around at the same time as the Porshe 996.

That would make it a “99e and wizz” and we would have to deal with a 999...

Today I will be listening to Pulp different class...

According to the list of type numbers on Wikipedia, only 998 and 999 remain unused, so presumably they'll use 998 next. But maybe not. They're going to have to come up with a new internal code eventually as there are only two left, but that's quite some time in the future.

.......................... by which time the rear mounted flat-six will probably be pensioned off meaning that the 911 won't exist.

After that they can call it what they like. Neutral

Maybe the flat six will be a little 2.0 range extender or something? I'm keeping my 3.8 until either I find a pot of gold in the garden and I buy a GT3 or I drop dead.
