The blokes at Pistonheads supposedly got word from an inside source at Porsche that the automaker is considering a track-day version of the GT2. The hypothetical Porsche 911 GT2 RS would improve on every aspect of the standard turbocharged rear-wheel-drive coupe, beginning with an additional 50 ponies, bringing output up to 580 hp. Center-locking wheels are rumored to be part of the package, along with Plexiglas rear windows and a range of body modifications that could drop some 440 pounds from the standard GT2's curb weight. The UK-centric site reports that ten right-hand-drive examples will be produced, although it doesn't say what total global output would be. If the GT2 RS does come to fruition, expect it to debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show later this year, with sales beginning the following spring.

Certainly believable. Porsche has the deepest wallets in its class and definitely has the market base. Porsche enthusiasts, IMHO, are one of the most loyal and knowledgeable gearheads.

Despite soft sales for the market, I'm sure this will be highly regarded among the Porsche community.

An expensive blazer wouldn't hurt either.
