Porsche has spent the past three years working on overhauling its entire model lineup. It started in 2009 with the addition of the fourth – and controversial – Panamera range; continued with the roll-out of a new Cayenne, 911, and Boxster; and is set to grow even more in the years to come.

Later this year, we are going to see the second-generation Cayman that is, in essence, a fixed-roof Boxster. Similar to the current Boxster/Cayman, expect the new 981-generation Cayman to carry most of the drop-top’s styling cues, interior, and powertrains. Powering the 2012 Boxster is a choice of mid-mounted flat-sixes displacing either 2.7 liters (Boxster) or 3.4 litres (Boxster S); the base engine is rated for 265 bhp and 206 lb-ft of torque, while the larger unit is good for 315 bhp and 266 lb-ft. Transmission options for both engines are either a six-speed manual or seven-speed PDK dual-clutch gearbox. The current Cayman and the previous-gen Boxster on which it was based had a £3000 difference in base price, so expect the new Cayman to retail starting around £40,000 after it’s unveiled next year.

Also due in 2013 is a heavily restyled (read: prettier) Panamera. The updated Panamera will now come in multiple flavors: the facelift will also bring with it a long-wheelbase version (most likely aimed at the Chinese market), as well as the possibility of a Panamera shooting brake and a four-seater Panamera cabriolet. If the brand faithful thought that the Cayenne and Panamera were heresy, they ain’t seen nothing yet.

Although product planning wanted to bring the all-new second-generation Panamera forward to 2015, now that the facelifted car will be revised from bottom to top, it probably makes sense to extend its lifecycle by introducing additional variants earlier than anticipated. And for 2017, industry spies are predicting the Porsche Pajun – a smaller version of the Panamera – will arrive in two or three body styles.

Also appearing in the crystal ball is the top-of-the-line hyper-expensive 918 Spyder (of which only 300 of the 918 units have been sold so far, sources say), the Audi Q5-based Macan crossover, a two-door Macan coupe ready by 2013, a four-door coupe version of the next-generation Cayenne (a la BMW X6), and the fixed-head V-8-powered 960 coupe. The fastback version of the Cayenne will be the first of that new model range to hit showroom floors when it appears in 2016, followed closely by a completely re-engineered alloy-bodied base model Cayenne around six to nine months later.

Both of the Cayenne variants will share all of their engineering with no less than a total of half a dozen Volkswagen Group SUVs including the next Audi Q7 and VW Touareg, the production version of the Bentley EXP 9 F concept, and Lamborghini’s forthcoming crossover.

In addition to the familiar variations of the 911 theme that are due imminently – Carrera 4, 4S, Cabriolet 4, 4S, GTS – Porsche will surprise die-hards with a 911 targa in 2014. Next in line for the 991-generation car are a lightweight 911 Clubsport, the 911 Turbo and Turbo S, a 911 GT3 complete with PDK transmission, and a GT2 RS powered by a quad-turbo flat-six.
