It’s already been confirmed that the Panamera family will swell with the introduction of a Sport Turismo variant, and a third body style could be on the cards.
Some sources suggest that executives in Stuttgart are mulling the possibility of introducing a coupe, which with or without the 928 name would serve as a spiritual successor to Porsche’s grand tourer. These reports were given some credence in late June when spy shots of a reported Panamera coupe surfaced online.
Since then, it has been claimed that while a Panamera coupe was an idea within the company, recently-spied prototypes were simply test beds for the new twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 from Bentley, set to power the next-generation Continental GT.
Whatever the case may be, the crisp styling of the new Panamera lends itself quite well to a coupe, as shown by these renderings from Theophilus Chin. The question is, qill a Panamera coupe ever happen? We’ll have to wait and see – but, we wouldn’t bet on it.
