Porsche is quickly trying to fill up the high end luxury market with a variety of models for every need. The 911 is a classic sports car with a recently revealed new generation, the Cayenne is a successful SUV that some people thought would never work, and the Panamera is the company’s sports sedan that offers comfort for the kids and speed for the parents. It seems they have all aspects covered, but now the German automaker is filling in the gaps between these models with miniature versions. We are all well aware of the baby Cayenne - the Cajun - that should debut in 2013, but now the company is said to be working on a baby Panamera as well. This future baby model is currently being dubbed the Pajun (Panamera Junior) and is expected to be unveiled in 2016.

The upcoming Pajun will most likely be a rear-wheel-drive model and will be offered with a range of turbocharged direct-injection V6 engine developing between 400 and 550 HP. It is also believed that Porsche will offer a 3.0 liter TDI with an output of 265 HP and a 4.0 liter twin-turbo V8 that will deliver an impressive 600 HP. A hybrid version might also be a possibility.

The future Pajun will be offered in a five-door coupe version first with a sporty shooting brake variant 12 months later. Sedan and convertible variants will also be offered. Before any of that, however, we will get a facelift for the Panamera, as well as a Panamera Coupe. These new models will be produced to help Porsche achieve their goal of increasing sales to 200,000 units a year.

Updated 1/26/2015: A report from Auto, Motor und Sport claims that the 2019 Pajun will be an electric-only vehicle positioned to take on Tesla.

Porsche Pajun Prototype Might Be A Toaster

Porsche Pajun Prototype Might Be A Toaster

The 2019 Porsche Pajun, which Porsche will position it as a sort of Panamera Junior, has been circulating the rumor mill for quite some time now. Now, a new report out of France is claiming that the Pajun Concept will debut at the 2015 Frankfurt Auto Show in September, but not with the drivetrain most enthusiasts would expect.

According to the report, the Pajun will arrive boasting an electric drivetrain that will show the direction Porsche is looking to take in the future. While rumors of an electric Pajun have been circulating, it is odd to debut the concept in this format when it will likely hit production several years after the traditional models. The reasoning for the delay is that Porsche CEO, Matthias Mueller, has said before the battery technology just isn’t where Porsche and its customer base want it.

What’s more, debuting the Pajun Concept as an electric car could send Porsche’s sensitive fan base into a frenzy. Porsche fans are not overly fond of change, and this was evident when the Panamera debuted, sending some of the brand’s fans into panic attacks. Then again, maybe with the insane success of the 2014 Porsche 918 Spyder, and the profits that the Cayenne and Panamera pull in, Porsche buyers are opening up to the idea that their favorite brand may actually know what it’s doing…

Either way, we’ll keep an eye on this report and let you know if more solid confirmation becomes available.

Porsche Working on an All-Electric Pajun to Battle Tesla

Porsche Working on an All-Electric Pajun to Battle Tesla

The 2019 Porsche Pajun (AKA the baby Panamera) has been on and off for some time now, but the latest news was that it was pushed back to 2019. Now, a new report from Auto, Motor und Sport claims that there may be more than meets the eye with the upcoming model, as Porsche has reportedly turned its focus to making it more on it being a Tesla competitor.

According to the report, the Pajun will carry a full-electric powertrain that will offer in the range of at least 350 to 400 km (217 to 248 miles). That would put the Pajun directly in the wheelhouse of the lower-range Model S versions, but still far short of the 2015 Model S P85D’s range. Chances are that the range included in this report was simply a base model.

There is no mention of whether or not the Pajun would be solely an electric car or if Porsche may make a standard gasoline-powered model and an EV. However, the German-to-English translation sure does imply that it may be EV only.

According to AMS, the Pajun EV will be ready for the road by 2018 or 2019. As with all of these speculative reports based on some shrivel of fact, take it with a grain of salt.

Did Porsche Just Reveal the Pajun in its Design Tower Miami Rendering?

Did Porsche Just Reveal the Pajun in its Design Tower Miami Rendering?

The capricious Porsche Pajun has been out of the headlines since reports circulated in July 2014 that Porsche was setting aside production of the model for supposed business reasons. Since then, we’ve heard nary a peep about the junior Panamera. We would’ve filed the Pajun deep within our memory banks had Porsche Design not released renderings of its prized new creation, the Porsche Design Tower.

The renderings show what you’d expect for any luxury condo: spacious units, floor-to-ceiling glass windows, and personal pools in balconies.

But one rendering did catch our eye. It’s a depiction of the PDT’s sky garage with a Porsche safely parked on a mechanism oin the garage. A closer inspection reveals that the rendered Porsche, while sporting a similar roofline to the Panamera, is a little smaller than the luxury saloon and appears to ride on a shorter wheelbase.

Our Spidey senses naturally tingled, thinking that this is actually a rendering of the Pajun.

While that may be the case, it doesn’t mean that development of the car has restarted. It could very well be just a whimsical interpretation of a car that we might not even see for quite some time, it at all.

But we’ll take hints of the Pajun, legitimate or otherwise, any way we can get them. If it comes by way of a rendering of an uber-luxury condo in Miami that none of us can afford to begin with, then so be it.

Porsche Panamera Junior Pushed Back to at Least 2019

Porsche Panamera Junior Pushed Back to at Least 2019

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.

TopSpeed Rendering: 2016 Porsche Pajun

Porsche’s latest un-Porsche-like phenomenon, the Panamera, has enjoyed enormous success on the market, so it’s not at all surprising that the Stuttgart based company is offering an alternative for those looking for a smaller sedan with the same level of luxury. With this idea in mind, the company is now developing the Pajun (Panamera Junior).

Rumors say that the next Pajun will most likely be a rear-wheel-drive model and will be offered with a choice of V6 engines, going from a standard 260 HP version up to a twin-turbo with 520 HP for the Turbo S version. Just like its bigger sedan brother, the next Pajun will also be offered with a hybrid version.

The future Pajun will be built on the company’s new MSB platform and will be offered with some of the most impressive features on the market, like ceramic brakes, dual-clutch PDK transmission, air suspension, four-wheel drive, torque vectoring, and more.

The only downside to this, other than the rants from people who do not approve of the un-sportscar models from Porsche, is that we are all going to have to wait until 2016 before the Porsche Pajun debuts.

Porsche Pajun sedan and station wagon confirmed for 2017

Porsche Pajun sedan and station wagon confirmed for 2017

In the past few months or so, Porsche has revealed that they are planning the production of a new model to be placed under the current Panamera. We’re not really sure why they are planning this, but it probably has something to do with the fact that the Panamera has been very well-received in spite of the huffs and puffs of Porsche fanatics wanting the company to stick to sports cars. Until now, rumors of this future Pajun (Panamera Junior) model will be offered only as a sedan, but now German magazine Autobild is reporting that Porsche will also be offering a Pajun station wagon and that both will arrive in 2017.

The future Pajun will be built on an entirely new platform and will be offered with a new range of engines: six-cylinder gasoline units with 320, 420, and 520 HP and a six-cylinder diesel engine with up to 313 HP. It will especially target models like the Mercedes E-Class.

The future Porsche Pajun will be priced at about €65,000, or about $85,000 at the current exchange rates.
