Hold off on those plans to buy the whimsical-sounding Porsche Pajun . You’re likely not going to see the model until at least 2019, so says a reported overhaul of the automaker’s roll-out product plans, known as the Porsche Product Strategy 2018.
CAR is reporting that a significant turning of the tide within Porsche stemming from the scrapping of the company’s future intentions and the Pajun is one of the unwitting victims of this drastic change of heart.
Porsche Product Strategy 2018 Initial called for the Pajun to be launched within the next four years. That timetable is still a little stretched, but at least it was concrete enough to justify the wait.
But with CAR saying that the Volkswagen Group is trying to scale down its investments in future products for supposed business reasons, all those plans under Porsche Product Strategy 2018 are now being set aside.
Initially, the Pajun was part of those plans. But with this new directive coming down from the mothership, the timetable for the model’s launch has been moved further into the future. The earliest date being thrown around is 2019, but even that appears to be an optimistic view of things.
So there’s a possibility that we won’t even see the production Pajun for another 10 years. That may be a glass-half-empty way of looking at this development, but when it comes to long-term timetables like this, it’s best to not keep your hopes up.
