An entire gallery of the face lifted 2009 Mazda RX-8 has found its way onto the internet accidentally on purpose, revealing that images CarAdvice previously published were indeed accurate.
The model pictured is the Type RS model, unique to the Japanese market. Most reassuringly, Mazda has continued with the unique suicide door arrangement for access into the rear seats.
Notable enhancements include stunning Recaro pews, Porsche-esque fog lamps, alloy wheels as well as revised tail lights. More info to follow when Mazda's official press release becomes available.
