Yes, I'm pretty sure that it is a first (directly from Porsche).

It has been done earlier this year when Porsche released their new GT3 RSR. 4.0L with individual throttle bodies producing around 450bhp (in spite of the straw-like air restrictors). I'm pretty sure the next (998) GT3 (RS) street car will also have a 4.0L flat six. I remember reading somewhere that that is around the maximum possible capacity of the engine.

The rev-matching autoblipper on this GT3-R is a bit gay though, people should learn how to heel-and-toe.
