Recently many reports that discuss tentnag Bentley Continental GT, Jaguar XKR-S, and also Aston Martin DB9. Do not want to lose competitiveness, Porsche will soon get a strong response by bringing in their new supercar car, namely 2012 Porsche 928 GT Coupe.
Following the report, released on the intention of Porsche’s in the introduction of a new sports car to slot between the 911 GT2 RS and the 918 Spyder, another piece of news comes out that can do it on this latest development .
According to Autocar, Porsche is preparing a new front-engine GT coupe that will be part of the second generation Porsche Panamera lineup that is scheduled for 2014 or 2015. If there is no leg to this, it is possible that the GT coupe will be based on a short chassis version of the Panamera and next generation will carry inspiration from the popular 928 sedan, which declined in the 70′s. The car could be badged as the 929 and will be a growing market that is much too serious competition to enter.
Logically, the successor to the 928 technically based on the Panamera. With the same drive-train layout, the two cars share more than 60% of their components, including engines, transmission, and suspension. It is even said that the decision of building a new FR coupe was taken advantage of the new Panamera technological platform more profitable. The cost battle remember everyone, and there are few cars these days, not technical components with others. Compared with the Panamera, the 928 GT Coupe features a shorter wheelbase and will lose some weight. This makes it sportier than the sedan.
In an interview with Autocar, a Porsche insider was a little more restrained in spilling the beans, but still left the door open on the possibility of this car becoming a reality. “At the moment, derivatives of the Panamera are not planned for the first generation, the source said.
“We hope to add them to the second generation, provided we can find necessary capacity.”
