Yes the 914, Boxster, Cayman, & GT were touted as a more mass centered mid motor designs.

I get the centralized mass rationalization and it is a valid goal. But I suspect not over other design factors as noted.

For example, when it came to the heavy lifting (production racing) the 911 has been by far the go to car over such designs.

So, if someone is asking my opinion, such a mod is more in the car jewelry category and probably not perceivable on any measurable performance level by itself.

If the goal is to go faster, there are a lot of other things that have a better payback like driver instruction / time, tires, brakes, suspension...

Bottom line, it is all good and if one likes it just go for it and enjoy it!
