    '09 Porsche Panamera, GT Coupe

    TheCarConnection (c)


    Porsche is testing a set of prototypes that not only show the Panamera sedan on a quick course for development-they also suggest that the sportscar maker is planning a fifth model line along the lines of the former 928 coupe.



    The first test mules for the Panamera, Porsche's forthcoming fourth model line, are shown here. The front-engined, four-door four-seat sports sedan is hidden under the bodies of a BMW 5-Series and an Audi A8. Porsche plans a market launch for the Panamera in the second half of 2009.



    Also shown here are the very first pictures of a potential fifth Porsche model. Expected to debut in 2010, the new model is a front-engined two GT coupe, very much in the tradition of the previous 928. Today the 928's niche is dominated by the Ferrari 599 GTB, Bentley Continental GT, Mercedes SLR, BMW M6 and Aston Martin V8 Vantage.



    The GT Coupe will be spawned directly by the Panamera saloon and share at least 60 percent of its parts with the four-door car, including a shortened version of its platform, its engines, transmissions and suspension. Engines are expected to include a range of normally aspirated and turbocharged V-8s and V-10s from 4.0 to 6.0 liters, producing from 300 to 650 hp. It is unlikely that all-wheel drive will be adopted for the Panamera and the GT Coupe.



    Our exclusive spy pictures show the GT Coupe as a rather wacky test mule wearing the skin of an old 928, with considerably wider suspension (note the flared wheel arches), stuffed with costly measurement gear and equipped with trick development technical gear. The prototype is equipped with externally mounted, oversize engine intake and exhaust mufflers, along with externally mounted radiators.

    I love the Panamera GT Coupe "Mule" in Kentucky Moonshiner Camoflauge..

    Re: '09 Porsche Panamera, GT Coupe

    Seriously, what the hell is going on with that car? I can't see the need for such an elaborate exhaust.

    Re: '09 Porsche Panamera, GT Coupe

    hmmm, seen only two "spy shots", the rest is CGI. One of them strikes me as a BMW M5, no way how to tell that it could be a panamera. And the 928... maybe this was built to distract from other, serious things happening?

    That car looks like a nissan 350Z. Same front bumper, same side windows, same everything.

    I would say the front is very close to Mazada RX-8.

    Re: ‘09 Porsche Panamera, GT Coupe

    I hope the 928 will be called 929.
    sounds like 959, and that cant be bad

    Thanks for saying that, I was seeing the same thing.

    Re: ‘09 Porsche Panamera, GT Coupe

    That 1st pic is very disappointing. I hope it looks racier than that.

    Looks like a photoshopped Nissan Skyline / Infiniti G35 Coupe (same platform as the Z, indeed). I bet someone sold the paper some old pictures of a G35 mule on the Weissach track!

    (If you're wondering how, Nissan contracted chassis fine-tuning out to Porsche a few years ago, as many manufacturers often do.)

    Re: ‘09 Porsche Panamera, GT Coupe

    ugly!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Re: ‘09 Porsche Panamera, GT Coupe

    That site must be a joke. They do show a bmw sedan and then an ALIEN driving a bastardized 928, it even had a direct tv satelite dish on it. Not a serious story.

    Re: ‘09 Porsche Panamera, GT Coupe

    Last year in June when I went to Weissach...I did see one of the "Back to the Future" 928 cars...So it is a real, and do actually exist.
    When asked whats that all about? Was told they use it for exhaust system testing..
    In the flesh...very strange

    I've never seen the car but I was told that Porsche uses this 928 for chassis-noise-tests. They put the exhaust-system outside the car so that they can concentrate on the noise the chassis itself makes. I don't know if that's true but it sounds logical to me.

    boring

    Re: ‘09 Porsche Panamera, GT Coupe


    Re: ‘09 Porsche Panamera, GT Coupe

    This is hardly a spy shot. Nothing but CGI. And the one for the coupe does look like an Infiniti G35. These are terrible images. Maybe the first pic has a good front end resemblence to the Carrera GT but the back looks like a new Mercedes S class. These are just bad pics.

    I hope that they do make a coupe version of the upcoming Panamera. I'm really in the market for a Grand Tourer and have been seriously considering the Jaguar XKR. If Porsche does one, I hope it has similiar lines to that car.

    Re: ‘09 Porsche Panamera, GT Coupe

    the first pic is a chopped 350Z haha

    Re: ‘09 Porsche Panamera, GT Coupe

    More 928


    Re: ‘09 Porsche Panamera, GT Coupe

    Ugly Panamera !!

    Look the front end of shape it is so high and reminds me Nissan 350z

    Re: ‘09 Porsche Panamera, GT Coupe

    Because the base image of this chop is 350Z
