Porsche Pajun: Smaller Panamera Planned to Rival 5 Series, E-Class

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.
