A couple of weeks ago Mazda issued a press release stating that its Detroit Show stand will host the debut of the 2009 RX-8 (click here). Today, one of readers sent us a scanned shot from a Japanese car magazine featuring what seems to be the facelifed version of the RX-8. If the car in the picture does indeed show the actual facelift model, then differences include new front and rear bumpers, revised grille, headlamps and tailamps. We’ll know soon enough. Thanks for the pic Ray!
