All-new spy shots of yet another Porsche 911 have found their way online.

There's just one little problem: No one really knows what the hell it is.

Most outlets seems to be convinced that this 911 GT3 RS clone is the work of Porsche's engineers to create a special edition GT3 RS along the likes of the 4.0. The 4.0 is the 911 GT3 RS that was on offer for the 997 generation in extremely limited quantities.

But if you spend a bit of time analyzing the spy shots, you'll note there's a bit of work done to the vehicle's hind quarters. More specifically, its rear valence has been modified quite a bit. See the exhaust? Note the new venting behind the rear wheels?

This has others scratching their head. Porsche wouldn't do this much work for simply a larger displacement motor, would it?

Cue the 911 GT2 or GT2 RS theory. 

While the GT3 RS is relatively new to the 991 lineup, we have yet to see either a GT2 or GT2 RS. That said, it seems more sensible that the GT2 car would come first before a special edition GT3 RS. That story seems to be the most logical but one never equated logic with all-new product development.

Take a look at the FULL collection of spy shots and let us know what you think: Is THIS 911 a special edition GT3 RS, a GT2 or a GT2 RS? What say you, Spies?
