Porsche to build baby Panamera – Pajun
Porsche is looking to develop a smaller, Panamera-styled sedan named the “Pajun” in order to compete with Mercedes-Benz’s popular E-Class and CLS coupe.
The Pajun will be a smaller version of the current Panamera sedan with four doors and would likely cost between €65,000 and €100,000.
It’s set for an introduction before 2017 at the latest, although Porsche executives have denied any firm decisions have been taken on the introduction of a sixth model.
Porsche is dramatically widening its once-selective lineup by introducing more variants — earlier this year it confirmed plans to produce the Macan, a small SUV aimed squarely at the Mercedes-Benz GLK and the Range Rover Evoque.
This week, the first pictures of the Macan surfaced in Germany, showing a vehicle that bears a significant resemblance to the Cayenne, albeit with a sharply raked windshield, a tapered roofline and a flattened bonnet, sitting over a large center grille.
It’s expected to be launched next year, adding a fifth model to the lineup of the 911 sports car, the Boxster/Cayman series, the Panamera and the Cayenne SUV.
