Future Porsche Lineup May Include a Panamera Cabriolet and a Cayenne Coupe
According to a recent report by Automobile Magazine, Porsche will launch several new models by 2017. The German automaker claims to have the highest profit per unit sold of any car company in the industry. The merger with Volkswagen has given the company a good financial position and with this they are able to spend on developing new models.
The Porsche Panamera is set to get an update this year. It is expected to get a new exterior design with new bumpers and restyled headlights. The other new variants include a shooting brake, several cabriolet models and a long-wheelbase variant. The second generation Panamera is expected to bring more variants to the lineup by 2015. Sources claim that a Pajun Panamera Junior could be launched in 2017 and that it could be available in two or three body styles.
The next-generation Cayenne will be released later this year. The engine might resemble the Boxster. So it could be a 2.7-L flat-six with 265 PS and a 3.4-L flat-six with 315 PS. 2013 will also bring the releasing of the 918 Spyder and the Macan crossover. The Macan crossover will be based on the Audi Q5. 2016 might showcase the redesigned Cayenne and Cayenne Coupe.
