According to Autocar.co.uk, Porsche is expected to build a brand new supercar to take the place left by the very much loved Carrera GT. However, instead of a V10-engined monster producing a noise very similar to an F1 car, the next supercar will be powered by a twin-turbo V8.
The new car is expected to be called the Spyder RS, honouring Porsche's current Le Mans series racer. The 3.4l twin turbo V8 is expected to pump out 480 hp, while being connected to a seven speed double-clutch gearbox providing drive to the rear wheels.
Other features include a carbon fibre monocoque chassis, while a seperate cradle will hold the engine and other bits. It must be said, though, that the car was expected for release in 2012, but amidst the current financial crisis and Porsche's desire to merge with Volkswagen, a delay can be expected.
