    Project 4-door sedan

    This is the specifications that I think the future Porsche sedan model should have.

    Top version.

    1800-1900 kg
    DSG /Gearbox
    PASM (Porsche Active Suspension Management)
    PTM (Porsche Traction Management)
    4-wheel drive
    520-550 hp / 730-800 Nm

    Price. Euro 98.000 ( incl 16% MwSt )

    Re: Project 4-door sedan

    Wow - I was really hoping for something lighter than that...

    it'd be nice...however

    Even during the four-door Porsche design study I attended the TOP HP figure that they gave us as an option was 500 HP Bi-turbo.

    ...and the price tag I think will come in at about $115-120K US for such a vehicle. (mean average of the prices we were given)

    Re: it'd be nice...however

    Sounds like a nice car to me ....

    A price tag over Euro or $ 100,000 is a bit too much I believe if they really want to sell 30-35,000 units a year ....

    Obviously Porsche's "comfort" zone is more in the Euro or $ 70-80,000 zone rather than over 100k....

    When we see what they can achieve on the track with a truck I'm sure they'll do great with a 4 door salon.... that would "only" weight 1.8-1.9 tons.

    Re: it'd be nice...however

    they'll also have a vehicle in that price range as well that will probably get 340-360 HP.

    My hope is that they make it attractive and distinct enough that it won't cannibalize their existing markets. It must also out-perform the "other" luxury German automakers. Therefore even if it is under-powered I hope this thing is not a pig.

    Re: Project 4-door sedan

    i share your opininon concerning the should put out in excess of 500bhp

    Re: Project 4-door sedan

    I'd like to see a model with 1500kg weight, 400hp NA V8, RWD, 6spd manual (DSC could be an option) and fantastic handling and feedback (unique to 4-door sedan). We have plenty of heavy, powerful cars already (like MB, Audi and BMW)

    Re: it'd be nice...however

    What design study was that and where did you attend this study?

    My guess is the approach Porsche will take is to offer a sedan much like that of the BMW 5-series and/or MB E-class, and then offer a higher performance TT model (ala M5/E55) for those wanting to hit the $100K+ mark.

    This is really the only way they could sell large #s of units.

    Let's see if I am right in several months.

    It was a design study sponsored by Porsche...

    here in Southern California (held in Long Beach).

    Remember...this is where I saw the images that had similarities to the Z3 M-Coupe (but not as ugly).

    Like I said then... no sporting vehicle should ever look like a station wagon.

    Re: It was a design study sponsored by Porsche...

    I don't know about that, i loved the Audi RS2, RS4 and RS6 Avant.

    Re: It was a design study sponsored by Porsche...

    RS6 avant was one of my favorites too!!!! Had it have come stateside I for sure would have bought one!!!!

    I have been smelling this all along, Audi will probably give them something like a short wheelsbase A8 chassis, or maybe even an all aluminum version of the new C6(no, not the new corvette butthe new A6) chassis.

    I also still think that Audi had a lot to do with the Cayenne's TT V-8. Should be interesting to see how this whole thing plays out.

    I can't help but imagine something that looks a lot like the Benz CLS coming from Porsche wanting to make a sedan.
