Click above for a high-res gallery of the Porsche 911 GT2

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.

      This car is already tail happy, and they're going to give it another 50 hp and drop 500 lbs?!? Lets just hope they make some rear end suspension mods too.

      I love the GT2, and this would but it right up there with the ZR1 in the straight line, and really take that top speed up.

      I'm excited, but it's bad news for handling unless they tweek the suspension.

      The new King of the Ring

        Jp, that's why they don't have drivers like you on the 'ring.
      • 5 Years Ago
      50 hp aside, 440 lb is a MASSIVE reduction. D: Wow.

      want...very much want

      Can't wait to see Jeremy Clarkson drive this, after his very "dramatic" review of the GT2 :)
      • 5 Years Ago
      Wow...I've never seen anything like it. Is this the "new"?

      You know Porsche, they've got these new tools that let you design automobiles on computers.
        • 5 Years Ago
        Yeah, I agree. One of the main things Porsche has going for them is their strong resemblance to Porsches of old. There's lots of heritage in the design. I for one love that they look the way they do, with not too many changes throughout history. It helps the 911 retain it's character.

        Why change perfection? The cars look amazing, and they design for performance, not just aesthetics, and I love it, this coming from a designer

      440 lbs??

      Unheard of in the automotive industry. Usually it's no where near that figure.
      • 5 Years Ago
      the pictures of the new GT3 make it look like it has center locking wheels as well. there could be a flake of truth to this rumor!
      • 5 Years Ago
      holy crap!!!

      wonder how much it'll cost. my guess is nearing 300K!
      • 5 Years Ago
      How many different 911’s are they? This is getting ridiculous.
      • 5 Years Ago
      10 for the UK?

      What do we think total worldwide output will be at then? 100? 200?

      $250,000+ ?

      Just guessing, but sounds like if its produced, it'll be a collector's item.
