    What's Next for Porsche?

    On the 997 Turbo forum, there is much excitement about the new 997 TT. Two years ago, the excitement was on the 997, then the 987, the 997 variants, the Cayman, and now the 997 TT. What next for Porsche for the rest of the year? What new models will be seen later this year being tested in some far away location?

    Re: What's Next for Porsche?

    I'm excited about the up and coming 997 gt3. From the look on the other boards i'm under the impression that there's a lot of anticipation about the facelifts both 997 and cayenne, after that i'm assuming maybe a cayman variant (non-s or otherwise), and after all thats said and done i think the big push will be for the panarama. then it all starts again with the 998.

    didn't RC comment on the rumor of there possibly being a 997 GT1

    Re: What's Next for Porsche?

    Yes, and dont forget the GT2 that may well happen, mmmmm.....

    Re: What's Next for Porsche?

    dont forget the 997 targa which will be a cool alternative

    Re: What's Next for Porsche?

    waiting for the next supercar

    Re: What's Next for Porsche?

    I hope the new GT3 is really hard core

    Re: What's Next for Porsche?

    My prediction for the future....
    For it's 50th. Anniversary in 2008, Porsche will release a special edition of the Carrera GT called the GT50, with a 750hp, 7L V10 and sequential gearbox....wouldn't that be great!!

    From spy pics that have been around, it looks like the Targa may be a version of the C4 & 4S.

    Porsche is already more than 50 years old, no? The PCA just had its fiftieth anniversary...

    Maybe you meant 60th?

    Of course you're right, 60 years and a "GT60"
    ....and I was only a Math major in college

    Re: What's Next for Porsche?

    I bet you were confused by the 40th anniversary 911 of a few years ago...but of course the firm is older than the 911.

    Re: What's Next for Porsche?

    Porsche's next vehicle is a smaller Cayenne based on Audi's Q5.

    New 928???

    Anybody know anything about this? From this month's Road and Track.

    Re: New 928???

    I am seriously going to hurt myself and others if Porsche makes the mini-Cayenne...

    Re: New 928???

    I like the idea of a modern 928, but that picture looks a little too retro for me.

    Re: New 928???

    A new 928 would be so much fun, a modern porche "muscle car"
    The SUV looks like an overgrown golf

    Re: New 928???

    Mini Cayenne....
    new 928....

    Expand there sports car models is definitly the way to go.

    Re: New 928???

    928 sounds great so does a 4 door. Take out the bmw M5 and M6.

    Mini suv... i will never buy another porsche if they make that...... thing.

    would it be mid-engine like the LeMans GT1's of 96-98 ??

    Re: What's Next for Porsche?

    This GT1 will be a "mini" GT accoridng to EVO Mag. They had an issue about a year and a half ago talking about a 2008/9 model to compete with the Gallardo and 430 more directly than the 911 would. Although they didn't name it the GT1 I suspect we are talking about the same thing.

    Re: What's Next for Porsche?

    I would never touch any Porsche again if they made that
    mini SUV piece of #@%$!!
    Why are they making these cheaper carss??
    To make more $$$???
    To make the brand more accessable? Well, theyre taking thewhole mysteek(?) of the name away....
    Soon it wont be "OH Check it out, A Porsche!!"
    It'll be "Oh look... there goes ANOTHER Porsche"

    These cars wont be special anymore. Even if they do make
    the best sports cars.

    I don't buy it. The GT1 will have to be faster than the GT2 and Turbo S to justify the name, meaning roughly 600 horsepower and being competitive with supercars such as the Murci.

    Re: What's Next for Porsche?

    Crash, no one is saying that's what they are going to call it. The fact is only that they are just going to build it, or one like it meaning a "mid-engined" higher performanced car to compete more directly along side the Gallardo and 430.

    You mean more prestigious? Because the new Turbo easily competes with the two and the clientele is roughly the same between the three cars.

    Re: What's Next for Porsche?

    I'm only repeating what I read in EVO.
