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.

Update History

UPDATE 05/31/2012: Automobilemag has uncovered new details on the upcoming Pajun set to be unveiled in 2017. The magazine reports that the Pajun will only be offered with V6 engines, with power ranging from 260 HP for the base versions, up to 420 HP and 413 lb-ft for the Pajun Turbo, and 520 HP and 501 lb-ft for the Pajun Turbo S. Just like the next generation Panamera, the future Pajun will be built on the company’s new MSB platform-modular sports car matrix 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.

Even though this car kinda resembles the panamera it has its look that make it special. The headlights was the first thing to catch my eye. Even though this car looks like the panamera theres definetly a place in the market for it.
