There was an article somewhere which stated the replacement has been delayed indefinitely for the current model so a face lift seems possible to keep things fresh.

What's everyone's guess on engine on this? I'm going with the 258bhp state of tune in the 330, Z4 and Supra that can be mated to the manual gearbox.

That's a decent guess, I doubt it would be anymore than that. The Morgan Plus 4 also has that lump in a similar tune (255bhp). Of course they may just do a token 10bhp gain.
But with 255-260bhp, and just improve the handling and looks a tad, it will be a more compelling buy than the GP3 for about £10k less. Especially with a manual box.
