Porsche officially working on a smaller SUV
Porsche is currently working on a fifth model on their line-up, a smaller SUV placed under the current Cayenne. The new model will join the current Boxster, 911, Cayenne, and Panamera model and, according to a company insider, "with the new model, Porsche will open up a market in which until now only Mercedes and BMW were active."
The arrival of a new model line is a huge investment, but so was the Cayenne that in the end grew production from 50,000 to 92,000 units per year. The new model will be based on the Audi Q5 and the upcoming Q3. Previous rumors said it would be called Roxster.
The "Roxster" will be a luxury car with sporty handling characteristics and high achievement. Sportier than the current Cayenne, it will feature muscular line contours, LED headlamps, and taillights. Most likely the future model will be offered with V6 and V8 engines, with output ranging from 280 to 500 HP for a possible Turbo version.
