While the United States has been experiencing an Audi RS drought, things are starting to change.

The company recently announced the RS5 will be offered in 2012, and now it appears the TT-RS could be coming along for the ride. Audi has started an online Twitter petition which will drum up support for American availability. It remains unclear when a decision will be made, but Audi says they are "seriously rethinking" their original plan not to offer the car in the United States.

As we have previously reported, the TT-RS features a turbocharged 2.5-liter five-cylinder engine with 340 PS (250 kW / 335 hp) and 450 Nm (332 lb-ft) of torque. It enables the Coupe to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 4.6 seconds, while the Roadster does the same task in 4.7 seconds. Both models have a limited top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph), but it can be raised to 280 km/h (174 mph) upon request.
