Porsche 911 - Facelifted GT3 on the Nurburgring

Spy photographers have snapped the next model of the Porsche 911 GT3 RS in disguise, testing on the outskirts of Nurburg, Germany. The newer, upgraded 911 due for release late this year, or early 2009, will benifit from direct injection, as is the case witht he GT3 RS seen here. However, the GT3 and GT3RS [RennSport] will not be available with the 7 speed PDK automated manual transmission - as this is a track oriented car, it will only come with 3 pedals.
This is undoubtedly a facelift model because of the slimmer, led taillights, and it is obviously the GT3 RS because of the rear spoiler, rollcage, and its use of a 911 "widebody" as the base.
The biggest question is how much more power will be available from the naturally aspirated flat 6, Porsche will undoubtedly up the ante due to the introduction of the Nissan GT-R, along with other bargain ringstormers such as the Corvette ZR-1.
