    Re: Porsche rumors

    Looks like a modern 904


    Re: Porsche rumors

    Looks cool, probably miles ahead in driving dynamics over other Porsche models.

    Stylewise it looks like a Porsche but thankfully without 911 styling cues. If they build it it may look very aggressive in real life.

    McLaren should be very scared! Its a obvious destroyer of their new car !


    Re: Porsche rumors

    I see a mix design of 458, Cayman, R8 in there.

    Re: Porsche rumors

    I like it.

    If Porsche comes out with this, it will be even harder to argue for the Italian competitors. Smiley

    Exactly that was my first thought. I don't like the R8 look from the rear and we see more and more the Audi/VW influence designwise.

    Re: Porsche rumors

     i hope they bild such type of car!!!


    Re: Porsche rumors

    I also like it. Such a car would allow Porsche to develop an alternative mid engine race platform to challenge Ferrari as well as provide a production car above the 911 to challenge Ferrari on that turf as well. In terms of styling I see Carrera GT in the doors and body sides, 911 in the rear window framing and roof line,  918 and 991 in the rear, and 904/Panamera in the front.   However, these sketches are as preliminary as they could possibly be.

    Re: Porsche rumors

    Maybe it's the concept for the next R8 instead? And VW slap the wrong badge on it? lol.


    Re: Porsche rumors

     Why would VW introduce a model which would syphon sales from its other models i.e. Gallardo, Audi R8, 911?

    Also, why in the hell does it have a top?

    Re: Porsche rumors

    I think that there is a lucrative market for a Porsche M-E junior supercar in both coupe and spyder versions. No in-house cannibalization at all:

    911 is a  totally different concept (more mainstream, more everyday transport).

    Why replace the R8, if VW Group can easily charge more (say 458 or McLaren money) for a Porsche than a comparable Audi? Audi could never charge Ferrari money for their excellent R8 V10, for example.

    Lamborghini attracts a different type of buyer compared to Porsche, and multicar owners would buy both and more, anyway.

    Why not 2 versions (open and closed) as competitors do to satisfy everybody?

    I'd be surprised if there were not open and closed versions. 

    That's why it would not have occurred to me to ask: "Why the hell does it have a top?". Smiley

    Re: Porsche rumors

     You deserve an explanation. Whenever Porsche has stepped into the super premium sport car market it has usually been topless. I assume this will be a model above the 911 range therefore super premium. Capice?

    BTW, I hope and pray that the exhaust does not sound like a Prius and price it below $250,000.Smiley

    I must have missed the topless versions of the 959 and GT1 Street.  Smiley

    In my book that just leaves the Carrera GT that qualifies as a topless super premium sports car.   

    Usually.   Smiley

    Re: Porsche rumors

    I thought this picture was connected to the rumored Porsche/Audi/VW mid-engine 4 cylinder car

    Of course the reference to "top-modell" did not seem to fit

    This project has been, according to various sources, abandoned because Porsche apparently went ahead and developed a Boxster entry model below the current 255 hp 2.9 l Boxster. Rumors indicate 200 hp for the new entry level model, price tag should be under 40 k EUR(39k or so).

    Re: Porsche rumors

    According to the rumors I have, the V8 model "above" the 911 will the a Coupe at first, maybe with a detachable roof part. Price range between 180000 and 250000 EUR.

     If true, when will this car be available for purchase?

     2013?

     The press states that the car will be launched end of 2013 Smiley


    Re: Porsche rumors

    If only 2 years away from sitting on the dealer's floors, shouldn't we be seeing prototypes by now, and also an official confirmation already by Porsche to warm up the prospective buyers?

    Good observation Smiley since the 991 Spyshot threads started way more than two years ago.
