With the Volkswagen Group having more or less completed the takeover of Porsche's sports car business, the Stuttgart-based automaker's officials are now able to focus on expanding their vehicle portfolio.
An unnamed Porsche source told German news publication Automobilwoche that the company is considering whether to build two brand-new models, including a smaller version of the Panamera sedan codenamed Pajun to compete against the BMW 5-Series.
The other model under consideration is known internally as Project 960 and it's a two-seat, mid-engine supercar with a twin-turbocharged V8 producing more than 600-horsepower.
The 'Project 960' would rival supercars from the likes of Ferrari and Lamborghini, possibly filling the gap between the higher-end versions of the 911 and the upcoming 918 Spyder plug-in hybrid.
In related news, last month, a Porsche official had dismissed the possibility of the development of a base roadster model priced lower than the Boxster, but now, Autonews Europe is reporting that the VW-controlled automaker has merely...postponed the so-called Project 551.
"It may take another generation of customers before a small roadster fits in with Porsche," CEO Matthias Mueller told the publication.
