Report: Porsche confirms 928’s successor with Panamera Coupe, Pajun in the works

Porsche CEO Matthias Mueller recently let Automotive News Europe the Stuttgart-based company’s future plans, two of which are currently in the last phase of development.

The two new models in the works are the 918 Spyder hybrid and a mid-size crossover dubbed the Macan, both of which are set for launch next year. It doesn’t end there, though, as Mueller also offered up information on another new model: a coupe variant for the next-generation Panamera. The coupe will be out next year, but the coupe may act as a 928 predecessor with a front-mounted engine and room for four.

It has also been noted that Panamera variants may not stop there. In addition to that, a 5-Series and M5 competitor, dubbed so far as the Pajun, and an all-new model to sit between the 911 and the 918 Spider limited run are both under consideration.

On the other hand, the inception of a model to sit beneath the Boxster has been “indefinitely postponed”, and the Sport Turismo Concept released at the Paris Motor Show this year “has not been approved for production.”
