Porsche 928 successor will be based on the Panamera

Speaking to the press at the 2009 Shanghai Motor Show, Porsche’s design chief Michael Maur said that he his working on a successor to the 911 that will be much more than a simple update to the new-generation 911 and may create a fifth variant in Porsche’s lineup.

Sources say that the model could be a new 928, a model that Porsche dropped in 1995. The new model will use the Panamera chassis and will have a 3-door hatchback look. The new 928 will target rivals the likes of the Bentley Continental GTC.

No word on what the 928 will under the hood but we expect most of, if not all, of the Panamera’s powertrain choices to be made available.
