The Final Frontier shuttle was different from previous shuttles because it was a redressed shuttle from TMP.
Nope, brand new, never used before design.

The whole idea of a shuttle was to provide a backup for transporters to ferry people and things to and from planets and starbases. They were never meant for anything more than that ...
The pursuit of the Enterprise by a starbase shuttle in Court Martial indicates that TOS era shuttles are definitely capable of warp speed equal to the Enteprise itself, although not for protracted periods of time. Lesser speeds could see shuttles traveling between star systems.
