Porsche automotive company’s representatives have announced their plans to introduce a new model within the next generation of Panamera. The new model from Porsche will be based on the 1970s classic 928 and it will be a front-engined, two-door car, scheduled to be launched in 2014.
Porsche readies the new GT coupe on a short-chassis version of the next Panamera model. Beside this, the two-door GT will attempt to embrace the looks of the 928 coupe from the late 1970s.
This new model, the next two-door generation of Panamera could be called the 929. The car maker aims to enter a sector that has reached sales over 10,000 cars a year by releasing the new 928 possibly badged 929. Aston Martin DN9, Bentley Continental and Ferrari California will be a tough competition for this new model. Furthermore, the Porsche 929 is drawn as a coupe and a soft-top convertible.
Autocar.co.uk went further into Porsche’s design sections and, according to them, the new generation of Panamera’s styling is guarded secretly, but it has all of the potential to be based on this image, which belongs to a Porsche-sponsored student who graduated from the vehicle design course at the Royal College of Art.
This student, Juliana Cho gives away some clues regarding the ideas being developed inside Porsche’s closed doors, under the close supervision of design boss Michael Mauer. This new design direction heads towards more geometric lines which are to be completed by a much stronger-looking front end, related by the undermentioned source.
“At the moment, derivatives of the Panamera are not planned for the first generation. We hope to add them to the second generation, provided we can find necessary capacity,” a Porsche inside source was quoted as saying by autocar.co.uk.
