    Porsche could share with Bentley, Panamera variant affected

    http://www.autocar.co.uk/News/NewsArticle/AllCars/254261/

     

    Porsche’s new boss Matthias Müller has said the firm should share platforms and knowledge with VW Group stablemate Bentley - but admitted the British brand’s own plans could affect the chances of putting further variants of the Panamera into production.

    Porsche is said to be keen to improve its economies of scale, particularly on the Panamera’s platform. That’s led to speculation that the car could spawn a a big two-door coupé as an indirect successor to the 928.

    When asked directly if Bentley’s Continental GT would affect the production decision on a two-door 928 successor, Müller said, “Yes, of course.”

     

    Hmm, does this mean there WON'T be a 2-door Panamera coupe ? Smiley

    Yes...most likely.


    Re: Porsche could share with Bentley, Panamera variant affected

    Porsche needs a 2-door Panamera Coupe. It would be a huge mistake if Porsche doesn't built this car. According to our sources, the Panamera Coupe already has the green light for further development (not sure about production though), so I guess it is going to happen.

    One thing seems to be sure though: VW wants to use one single platform for their luxury 4-door and 2-door models (Audi A8, Bentley, Porsche Panamera, etc.) and this very likely means that Porsche's own Panamera platform will be canned with the next generation.

    But was it greenlit under the current VW and Porsche bosses ? Or the previous ones (which are no longer in control at all)


    Re: Porsche could share with Bentley, Panamera variant affected

    All I can say is that the Panamera Coupe still seems to be a development in progress, it hasn't been stopped.
