Even though talented image manipulator Theophilus Chin drew this as a joke, we sincerely hope something this tiny and awkward will never wear a real-life Porsche badge.

While the Cayman GT4 does a fine job maintaining Porsche's traditions in the 21st century, it’s cars like the 918 Spyder that point the way to the future. And like it or not, electrification, be that through hybrid, plug-in hybrid, pure-battery or fuel-cell solutions, is here to stay.

Future Cars: Crystal Ball-Gazing Porsche’s Next 928

When you think of Porsche, images of its racing heritage, the Carrera GT and the iconic 911 usually come to mind - and of course some will think ‘glorified beetle’ as well.

One of the German manufacturer’s more forgotten models is the Porsche 928 - a response to dwindling 911 sales back in the late 1970’s. It was a car that never quite emerged out of the 911’s shadow, even though it did survive an eighteen-year production cycle.

While this 1984 Porsche 911 doesn’t look particularly special, that’s not the case for the trained eye which would not have a hard time at all spotting the different front bumper and rear wing, as well as the aerodynamically-profiled wheels.

If you come to think about, the best thing about this overload of SUVs and crossovers that we're experiencing right now and will continue to do so over the next few years is that, model by model, we're slowly edging closer to the point that consumers will have had enough.

Since we were on the topic of French industrial designer Anthony Colard this week (he's the talented guy who penned the AC 5-28 Mont Ventoux, aka the misreported "Dubai Roadster"), we thought we'd share another one of his projects, the Porsche 921 Vision made as a modern interpretation of the classic 928 built from 1977 to 1995.

Okay, this is one of the rendered-hoaxes from April Fools' Day that escaped us, but before you place your giggly face on, just remember how absurd it was to imagine the possibility of a supercar brand like Aston Martin entering the sub-compact segment - not with any city car, but a rebadged-Toyota city car

Porsche Reportedly Preparing 911 Safari Off-Road Study for Beijing Auto Show

Read more

Back in the days when Porsche didn’t have the Cayenne in its lineup, the brand’s off-road ambitions had to be satisfied with modified 911 models featuring raised ground clearance and all-wheel drive.

While these models were only intended for off-road racing and didn’t make it to production, they later served Porsche well when the Cayenne was touted as their successor.

Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo Makes its Driving Debut in Beverly Hills

When Porsche launched the Type 970, aka the Panamera saloon at the 2009 Shanghai Auto Show, it received quite a lot of criticism. Though in no way did it induce the wrath of the press and the public like the Cayenne SUV did, they all agreed that its design was, if not ugly, then certainly heavy-handed.

It was an issue that came up in each and every review: the Panamera was praised for its sporty ride, quality interior and ability to transport four adults and a fair amount of luggage but its exterior styling was always the sticking point.

Fast forward three years to the 2012 Paris Auto Show and the Panamera Sport Turismo concept. In sharp contrast to the production Panamera saloon, the shooting brake received universal praise for its sleek styling that, the company said, “is an outlook on a possible Porsche sports car of tomorrow”.

Porsche is giving us a strong hint at the future of the Panamera series with its new Sport Turismo Concept that was unveiled during a press event on the eve of the 2012 Paris Motor Show.

With the Panamera Sport Turismo concept, Porsche's intention is to kill three birds with one stone, in the sense that it is previewing both a new design language for the next Panamera saloon and a plug-in gasoline-electric hybrid powertrain, while also testing the waters for an expansion of the series with a more practical and roomy, estate-like model.

"The body concept of the Panamera Sport Turismo is an outlook on a possible Porsche sports car of tomorrow," said the company in a press statement.

The Sport Turismo is 1,990 mm wide, 1,401 mm tall and 4,950 mm long, which makes it 61mm wider, 17mm lower and 20mm shorter than the current Panamera.

At least in concept form, the Sport Turismo has a slightly more aggressive and simultaneously sleeker appearance than today's Panamera, but this could all change once it enters the realm of production.

New Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo Concept Previews Next Sedan and Shooting Brake Model

Read more

The rumors about Porsche readying a sporty-looking station wagon concept - much in the likes of the Mercedes-Benz CLS Shooting Brake, for the Paris Motor Show turned out to be true as the first images of the study hit the web today.

Named the Panamera Sport Turismo Concept, the prototype foretells the future of the Panamera series previewing the next generation model's design language, the addition of a second body style and judging by the ghost picture and the 'e-Hybrid' badge on the front door, a plug-in hybrid variant.

The lines and styling elements of the Panamera Sport Turismo including certain elements such as the shape of the headlamps and tail lamps, clearly inherit the design DNA of Porsche's latest models like the Boxster, 918 Spyder and the 991.
