Spy Shots: 2009 Porsche 911 Turbo Facelift and 500hp

Our friends over at CarMagazine have caught these latest spy shots of the new Porsche 911 Turbo hitting up the Nurburgring. Although this new facelift may lack visible changes from the current model offered by Porsche, most changes are made to the performance.

Of course their will be more power, more torque, lower emissions, but the biggest news this year that the Porsche 911 Turbo should finally get the new twin-clutch gearbox. The next-generation Porsche 911 Turbo will be the first Porsche sports car to get direct injection. That means the 3.6 liter turbocharged engine in the current turbo that produces 480 horsepower will now produce 500.

Most visual changes are made to the rear taillights, bumper and exhaust. CarMagazine says the car won’t make its official appearance until 2009.
