I wonder if this will herald the introduction of the 4.0 Litre road car at some point in the near future? Certainly the increase in capacity would allow Porsche to continue the horse power battle with Nissan and the GT-R.

I would think it will - lots of development Euros gone into this shame just to leave it in the racing world don't you think?
