First we hear VW might axe a couple of Porsche's more "off-message" models, then we get these renderings from a 12-year-old showing a way to salvage the Panamera program. Coincidence? We. Think. Not.
Hi, I'm 12 and I photoshopped a couple pictures of the Cayman to make a 928. The 2011 928 would get a 300hp Panamera V6 with RWD. The 928 GTS would look sportier with a GT3 style rear wing, a 400hp V8, and also RWD. The 928 S4 would have a wider track than the 928, get a 400hp V8 engine and have AWD. Finally the 928 Turbo would get the same 500hp V8 from the Panamera Turbo, but would be much much faster than the Panamera due to the light-weight coupe layout, it would also have a wider track to accommodate the AWD. Pricing for the base 928 would start around $60K, the GTS about $75K, the S4 $80K+, and the Turbo retailing at about $120K. All while fitting the Porsche philosophy without lacking performance, the 928 would make a spacious Porsche appealing to more buyers.
We'd add that this 928 could be based on a shortened Panamera platform, dropping two of the doors, but retaining rear seat room for two short-legged adults. Hey
Porsche VW, you really should hire this kid.
