Report: Porsche 984 under development, could be based on the 918 Spyder

by SpeedLux

As per a recent report, Porsche is in the process of developing a 2+2 model that would be based on the 918 Spyder.

As of now the details about the model are limited but as per the report, the model will be called the 984 and will use a stretched of the 918 Spyder’s carbon fiber chassis. With the help of the stretched version, the engineers would be able to install two rear doors and two rear seats. A full-size concept has been allegedly created by chief designer Michael Mauer and is said to have a 911-inspired greenhouse and a considerably low roofline.

In terms of power, the 918 Spyder has a pretty complicated hybrid system but the 984 model may not be that difficult to understand. The model is rumored to be equipped with a mid-mounted 4.6-liter V8 engine that would produce approximately 700 hp (522 kW) and 443 lb-ft (600 Nm) of torque. The engine would be further mated to a seven-speed PDK transmission that sends power to the rear wheels.

If the model is given a go ahead, it could be launched in the year 2017 and it would come with a price tag of €350,000 ($467,460 / £299,595).
