Peugeot recently unveiled the 308 R concept at the Frankfurt Motor Show and a new report is indicating it could be headed for production.

Speaking to Top Gear UK, Peugeot Managing Director Maxime Picat said "We will create specific high-line versions of our cars. For example the 208 GTi and RCZ R." He added, "There is room for a 308 R that uses the same engine as the concept car at Frankfurt."

While that's not exactly a confirmation, Picat said he signed off on Peugeot Sport creating customer cars and hinted "the potential 308 R will be developed by Peugeot sport to use sport technologies."

As a refresher, the 308 R concept had a 1.6-liter THP engine that produced 270 bhp (201 kW) and 330 Nm (243 lb-ft) of torque. It was connected to a six-speed manual transmission which sent power to the front wheels via a Torsen differential.
