Porsche sketch could be new 928 Coupe? Not


We don’t know much in the way of pegging design sketches for future vehicles, but with persistent rumors of a new Porsche 928 in the horizon, a lot of people are becoming more and more inclined to believe that this sketch drawing - that can be found on the Porsche Consulting website - may be more than just a website design, but, in fact, a future vehicle that Porsche already has baking in the oven.

Unfortunately, we hate to be the bearer of bad news because this sketch is nothing more than just one of hundreds, maybe even thousands, of sketch designs to come out of Stuttgart. And just because they’re sketches, it doesn’t mean that Porsche is cooking up something that none of us know about, but hey, there’s no crime in day dreaming, right?

The classic 928 was powered by a 4.5 liter 16-valve V8 engine that delivered a total of 345 HP. This was just enough to sprint the car from 0 to 60 mph in 5.1 seconds and hit a top speed of 171 mph. The "new" 928 will feature the same drive-train layout. If we were to believe this was the "new 928" then we would anticipate the two cars would share more than 60% of their components, including engines, transmission, and suspension with a possible debut in 2012.

Of course, we don’t think this is the new 928 and if you think that there’s more to this sketch than meets the eye, then more power to you. But until somebody from Stuttgart offers us any sort of hint on a possible future model that’s based on this drawing, we’re going to err on the side of prudence and caution and call this what it really is: a drawing and nothing more than that.

The sketch reminds me of Porsche 911..Well, the speed performance of the car is not that impressive and I guess only a ordinary sportscar can produced that low performance vehicle.

Until recently, I haven’t heard the debut of this vehicle . Well, I don’t think that Porsche have the time to build this concept for they are busy working on the next generation of 911.

I think it would be more prettier if they just make it correctly and more than just a Panamera body.

Excellent dude excellent, I looks promising to me.

Funny, when I saw the 370Z, I thought "huh, looks like a Porsche or something" Details aside, of course.

yes lovely sports car. but for sure they will release this 3-4 year after the prototype is been released.

there is a possibilities that this might be the new looks of 928 besides it looks better than the panamera.

Interesting sketch, and I think I’m getting excited, because I feel Porsche is working on a new 928 that may be a Panamera variant.

for me.. it looks like a smaller version of panamera.. for sure techart is already waiting for it’s release.

impressive design.. it looks like a smoother and sexier porsche.
