The rumour mill is filled with stories of a possible revival of Porsche’s 928 badge. Allegedly an addition to the second-generation Panamera line-up, the new model would possibly be called the 929 and has a launch date set for 2014/15.
A report on www.autocar.co.uk suggests that that the two-door, front-engined 929 GT Coupe will have the underpinnings of the next-gen Panamera, and possibly be available as both a coupe and a soft-top cabriolet.
An “insider” at Porsche reportedly told Autocar that, “at the moment, derivatives of the Panamera are not planned for the first generation. We hope to add them to the second generation, provided we can find necessary capacity.
“We have ideas to extend the Panamera line-up, including other body derivatives — a shooting brake, for example.”
All of this is just speculation at the moment. We’ll keep you posted should further details emerge!
