    Porsche Panamera ( 4-Door GT )

    Porsche is to bring out a four-door GT with V8 and V10-Motor in 2009 under the model name Panamera .
    The concept will be presented by autumn at the IAA to the public.
    After Cayman for the Boxster Coupé (debut on the IAA in the autumn) now Panamera for the fourth Porsche line.
    The Stuttgart sportscar manufacturers protected both names on the same day (15.1.2004) at the German patent office.
    At the latest by autumn this year Porsche wants to present its concept for the fourth line.
    The most important first in brief:
    It's a four-door and four-seated front engine car with rear- and all-wheel drive, V8 and V10-engines with a range from 340 to over 600 PS.
    The prices are to be settled between 100.000 and 150.000 €.
    Annually 20,000 units are focused.
    The assembly in Leipzig is to begin 2009.

    Re: Porsche Panamera ( 4-Door GT )

    Also coming soon....

    Porsche 997TT

    From the factory:

    -473hp, 457ft/lbs. of torque. *(502ft/lbs. of torque offered for "10 seconds" during a special "overboost mode of 20.9psi").

    -$130,000 US

    -Uses new "VTG" turbines, which offer variable vane angles to decrease lag and spool up times.

    -Next generation AWD with full torque distribution to each individual wheel as needed.

    -90lbs. lighter than 996 Turbo via aluminum replacing steel at various points, including both doors.

    -GT2 variant not expected for 24 more months, but planned. "S" version planned also, no timeframe given.

    -DSG semi-auto transmission will not be offered initially, now called "PDK" in Porsche-speak. Planned for introduction within first two years of production.

    -Refined PASM suspension offers softer ride than 996 Turbo, while firming faster under track conditions.

    -Nurburgring time is "7:49", which is seven seconds faster than the 996 Turbo, and three seconds slower than the 996GT2.

    -Look for the "March" issues of the major car mags for first-drive reports, with instrumented test results following later this year

    And I'm glad they don't. GM should be focusing it's priorities elsewhere. Let the Porsche's, Ferrari's, Lambo's etc. duke it out. That's a whole different marketplace.

    Re: Porsche Panamera ( 4-Door GT )

    A few years ago I'd have said the idea of a 4-door Porsche was a bad one... but if they can have an SUV, a sports sedan seems like an even better idea to me. Looks pretty sharp, if a bit Maserati-ish.
