    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)
    PSM
    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 engine...it 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)

    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.
