     Looks like a 911 backed into an Aston.

    Speed has never killed anyone, suddenly becoming stationary... That's what gets you.

    Re: Next gen 928

    It could just as easily be concept sketch for the 991   Early sketches tend to exaggerate the size of the wheels and compress the height of the glasshouse to make the designs look sleeker.


    Re: Next gen 928

    Panamera Coupe sketch?

    Re: Next gen 928

    It is this in body - the many years old but still awesome looking concept of a NEW 928 -  and hopefully they will build it to stay relevant and not fall behind all these other marques.

    hopefully not another bait and switch, like they did with the panamera sketch.

     

    Great catch, Ron.

     

     

    Edit: let's compare concepts

    As Iain already said, this could be everything, also an early sketch for the forthcoming 991. Smiley

    Re: Next gen 928

    Only if the 991 takes the final step and morphs into a 928, very little room in such a design for a rear engine.

    Re: Next gen 928

    All I know is: Porsche needs a GT Coupe and it will be very likely based on the Panamera or the Audi A8 platform. We will know more soon.

    Re: Next gen 928

    Will have two doors and the shape of a coupé, or other "thing"?


    Re: Next gen 928

    Sorry to dissapoint you guys but this was a sketch for the 997.1. They even featured it in a Porsche design calendar a few years ago:

    Re: Next gen 928

    Very good finding.  A GT Coupe is still coming though...

     That worries me, both the A8 and the Pan platform are very long, even after a bit of shortening, that means the result will be a front engined long cruiser. And i just don't think that kind of proportions will play gracefully into porsches design languageSmiley


    Re: Next gen 928

    ...but on the other hand, it does allow for the engine to be placed between the front axle and cabin (a la Corvette) as apposed to on the axle.cocktail.gif

    No matter what it may be based on the design will be of a length appropriate for a GT now that wendell is long gone.

     

    Porsche's design language whatever that is includes 25 years of 928 flagship, many great years of 944, 968, and now Cayenne, and even the ugly duckling panny. Quite a lot of front engine words in that language. I think based on the 918 that Porsche under Piech can do it right.

    928 Coupe 011.JPG

    That would be AWESOME for a Panamera Coupé!!!!
    Plus the fact that the rear ligths on this sketch are sensational and they should be on the Panamera 4 door...

    I hope they do the rigth thing with the Coupé and the future 4 dr...

    Please Porsche, do something the most close to this sketch!!! Smiley

    Isn't that's what the Turbo is now?  A GT car?

    For those who want hardcore sports car, Porsche offers the GT3, GT3RS and to a certain extend the GT2?

    The Turbo is more like a GT oriented super sports car, something like M3 and M6 in BMW model range for example...

     Another one swallows the bait. Hook, line, and sinker. You'd think car design sites and magazines would have a better grasp of the design history of a marke as important as porsche.

    You'd also think that that such car design sites and magazines would realize that such sketches are a dime a dozen in any design studio.  Smiley

    A studio boss has to make his designers make lots of such sketches just to keep them too busy to start sawing the legs of his office chair.  Smiley

    If a styling idea is not yet seen to have reached the stage of a 3D-simulation Computer Aided Styling (CAS) exercise, it doesn't mean a damn thing.
