Just when we were starting to get used to the idea of a Porsche sedan to go along with the small family of SUVs produced by the German automaker, they go ahead and start working on another rendition that may leave us scratching our heads.
Rumors on the web suggest that Porsche is working on a junior version of their Panamera which will resemble the relationship the Cajun has to the Cayenne . They might have even come up with a name for it. Unoriginally so, the future "baby" Panamera may be called...wait for it...the Pajun (Panamera Junior).
The future Porsche Pajun will follow along the design lines of the Panamera, but with smaller proportions. It will also feature its six-and eight-cylinder gasoline engines, as well as the hybrid and six-cylinder diesel options. Power will range from 400 to 560 hp, with the diesel coming in at about 300 hp. Prices for the future model will start from about 60,000 euro or about $85,000 at the current exchange rates.
As of right now, there isn’t an official configuration from Porsche on the so-called Pajun, but they have confirmed a convertible version for the Panamera due out in 2012. Let’s just hope that, if the "baby" Panamera does make it, it comes with a better name.
