Porsche’s future models put on hold
Just when we get brand new information for Porsche’s future baby SUV, it all gets squashed like an undercooked halibut in Hell’s Kitchen. We just got word that Porsche was working on the Cajun with its design being lead by Walter DeSilva himself, and already the news is getting tackled by Porsche’s new chairman Matthias Mueller. In an interview with the British magazine Autocar, Mueller said that Porsche’s new models have been put on hold. Yes, that includes their new baby Boxster too. Thankfully, we still get to see the revised version of the 911 which is unaffected by the chairman’s decision.
"We have to clarify how we are to spread out our product programme — below, above, left and right and so on — and we will see. " he said. "There are a lot of questions still to be answered and we want to create a business case [for them]. Then it will be possible."
Mueller also stated that the target of 150,000 units a year isn’t so important: "Of course we have to increase volume, but we first have to look at the other issues; we have to have profit and we intend to keep ourselves premium."
