With its new Macan model on the way to slot in under the Cayenne, Porsche is actively hunting new market segments to fill and could add two more models to its lineup at very different ends of the spectrum.
With the success of Porsche‘s Panamera sedan, it’s little surprise that the automaker is now looking to introduce yet another 4-door model. With the Panamera sitting at the top of the range, the new model, code named the Pajun, will be a more affordable sedan, competing in the same realm as the BMW 5 Series and Mercedes E-Class.
Expected to be offered with your choice of gasoline, diesel or hybrid propulsion, it’s likely that the car would make use of the same turbocharged six-cylinder being planned for the Cajun SUV. Pricing would come in below the Panamera, although some overlap is likely with higher-performance models likely to pass beyond the $75,000 mark of the base Panamera.
Still far from development, if the project does get the green-light, look for the baby Panamera some time around 2016.
