Peugeot 308 RC-Z to go into production |

French website MotorLegend reports that Peugeot decided that the Peugeot 308 RC-Z will actually go into production. This decision was taken by Peugeot’s new boss, Frederic Saint-Philippe Collin, which replaced Christian Streiff. One of his first decisions was to bring the 308 RC-Z into mass production.

Nothing official so far, but it seems that the 308 RC-Z will be produced at Peugeot’s plant in Magna in Graz plant, Austria, and it will be based on the PF2 platform from the Peugeot 308 and the Citroen C4. Rumors also say that Peugeot will first offer the 308 RC-Z with a 175 hp 1.6 liter petrol engine. We don’t expect the car to be introduced sooner than 2009 but one thing’s for sure: a cheaper Audi TT available will definitely create some waves in the market.
