While spy shots of a Porsche Panamera mule wearing the skin of a BMW 5-Series are hardly enough to get the gasoline in your blood to boil, shots of a mule reported to be a coupe variant just might. After the debut of the Panamera sedan in late 2009, Porsche is expected to unveil a new front-engine GT coupe in the tradition of the 928. The spy shots of the GT Coupe show a heavily modified 928 body with extended fender flares and a host of technical development gear. The coupe will share around 60 percent of its parts with the Panamera, according to The Car Connection, and ride on a shorted version of the sedan's platform. It will also share the Panamera's engine line-up, transmissions and suspensions. Porsche appears to be aiming the GT Coupe directly at such expensive two-doors as the Bentley Continental GT, BMW M6 and Aston Martin V8 Vantage.
