Next generation 998 Porsche 911 spied?

I tend to believe World Car Fans, but to be honest it’s so hard to tell a new generation with Porsche.


+5 hp = New Generation
Second cup holder = new model!

LED Tail Lights on 911 Turbo

997 Turbo LED tail
Can’t wait for ext year to get a facelifted turbo?  Looks like you can make the swap today on a current 997 Turbo. “Gormanlad” from 6SpeedOnline has done the swap, more pics after the jump.

Why does SharkWerks get it and Porshe doesn’t?

I was just reading through the latest SharkWerks build up on 6SpeedOnline, and I noticed that they did what Porsche should have done years ago.  Proper paddle shifters for the tiptronic transmission.  With the new PDK dual clutch hitting dealers with some janky push-pull button arrangement I really am wondering if Porsche engineers have even driven a car with proper padle shifters?  Anyhow, happy that options exist, hope this aftermarket solution works on the new PDK system
