Ever since the Panamera sedan made its market debut, there have been rumors that Porsche will do a coupe based on the same chassis that would be a successor to the 928, the company’s first mass-produced V8 powered model. We finally have something “official” from Porsche and you’re looking at it (the picture above).
The sketch has popped up on the opening page of the Porsche Consulting website and appears to show a successor to the 928 V8 coupe with strong 911 design cues.
Insiders say that Porsche engineers have been pretty pissed off about the 911 being limited to a 6-clyinders and would really like to go head-to-head with Ferrari, Mercedes-Benz and Aston Martin with a front-engined V8 GT car.
Sources say that Porsche has been encouraged by the strong sales of the Panamera, which is currently beating its sales target of 20,000 units annually.
