    2008 Porsche's


    "Porsche will update its current 911, which has been on the market for four-years now, by 2008. As with any Porsche update, styling changes are expected to be minimal, namely a larger front air intake and redesigned rear lighting.

    Enthusiasts will find the biggest changes under the hood. The new 911 gets Porsche's new direct-injection engines, as seen in the recently facelifted Cayenne. Fuel economy improvements of over 10% are claimed by Porsche, and up to 15% in real life. We'll have to review them to check whether this is true or not. The other big change is the inclusion of a DSG-style dual-clutch gearbox as an option, reports Automotive News. Most of Porsche's current tiptronic range is much slower than manual, adding around 0.5s to the 0-100km/h time. The only exception to this is the 911 Turbo, where the tiptronic is actually slightly faster than manual. A dual-clutch gearbox will allow auto drivers to get silky smooth gearshifts throughout the rev range.

    Most models will also come with a slight power increase in the range of 5-25hp. There are also rumors it may get IR night vision, but this is yet to be confirmed."
