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.

Its a good thing that they have stop any production related to Cajun. I guess, they have realized that smaller version of SUV doesn’t work out! BTW, I can’t wait for the production of Panamera.

Smaller version for the Panamera would be awesome though I think that convertible version is much awesomesmiley

I will wait for the full details of this car. I have seen the convertible version and I like it though I do believe that it doesn’t enhance the look of the car.

I’ll probably have to wait first for the details that they will be releasing about this car. By that time, I would be able to assess the car and give my opinion about it.

A junior version? What will be the features and specs for a junior version? I heard and seen upgradation and special editions but a smaller version is something very uncommon I suppose. Should follow on this.

Yah, Panamera would certainly be to the liking of those who can’t afford the standard one. But they need to make sure that they will be able to match the performance.

OK, the idea of a smaller Panamera is actually cool to me, since it would be useful. But can they think of a better name for this one, Cajun seems to be taking it too far with the puns.

I wonder how they would be able to work on this baby Panamera, to think that the current car is already small enough by today’s standards. But it would still be interesting to see.

hmm. Panamera is quite successful production. And i think the traditional look of the Panamera is good and sporty. So, i don’t get why they are making a smaller version for this car. Are they planning to sell it on other country?

And I thought that the Cajun name for the Cayenne’s little brother came from the term they use for French Canadians. Come on Porsche, think of a better name.

So Porsche is really going out of their way to create a smaller version of the Panamera? Well, I don’t know if that would be a good or a bad thing, but it would be interesting to wait for it.
