The Ferrari FF of the Porsche world. Discuss, yes or no. Although I like the look of it, it's not necessary model that won't enhance the brand on my opinion. So it's a no from me.

Has this been officially announced, or is it just a mock-up showing a concept by an enthusiast?

It's April 8th, not April 1st... Floor

That's just a pic of a 992 with a Sport Turismo back grafted on!

I like it, just as I like the FF!

Then I also have M-B CLS Shooting Brake, so I like that kind of thing.

It would have made more sense to me to have made the Panamera GTS a 2 door option with its longer wheelbase, as even with a bit of extra headroom it will have insufficient leg room.

Also there is nowhere for the engine to go, so without rear engine it ceases to be a 911 really.

Today's 928? Or is this a late April fool!

It must be a mock-up and is probably more an artist rendering of what a 2 door Panamera might look like.

I don't think that estate hatch would be much use on a rear-engined car. Grin

I should have stated above its a rendering. Having said that, to make it work as a true adult 2+2, the wheelbase would need another wedge inserted as the rear seats are for skinnies. I know from sitting I the back of the 997 that it's far too upright for anything more than 1hr at a push. Realistically 30 mins is cruel.
perhaps it would be better to shorten a Panamera than lengthen a 911. It would make more sense.

Your dog would get very hot if it were sat on top of the engine!

It’d have to be a small dog too, can’t think there’d be much room on top.

Autocar carried a story the other day about this... it’s a coupe based on the Panamera.

Front engined 928 successor makes more sense!

If this is indeed a potential new 911 derivative, unsure as to the customer base it would be aimed at Question
