If all the rumors, wishes and Internet chatter about a new Porsche 928 can actually make the car happen, we are all for it – there are few automobiles we miss as lustily as the 1992-1995 928 GTS. We do know that Porsche has seven new models in the works and a 928 successor could be one of them, but until we have something more substantial to go on it looks like we're in for a slew of crowd-sourced renderings.

The above is from Teamspeed forum member Wildspeed, who's done a thorough job of melding Panamera and early 928 cues with a bit of flourish around the front wheel wells. If it comes in a manual version we'll consider it. You can have a better look at it in the high-res image and let us know what you think of Wildspeed's 928 and the GT's speculators in Comments.

      I loved the 928, - great drivers car. This on the other hand is hideous looking. Cross between an AMC Pacer and a TVR.

      I remember a dumped 928 S4(Second Best model after the GTS) near my house, was there for the last year or so. Just around the time I was seriously considering buying it and restoring it, it was gone/someone bought it. :( I really wanted that 928.... The paint was good, never saw the front but it looked good condition except for the smashed rear window.

      It looks like the kind of car that will cost 2x and not perform as well as its competition... 370Z, Mustang V8, Camaro... let alone if you put it against what would probably be a similarly priced Nissan GTR... keep this one in the record books

      HA HA! Looks like a Datsun from 1982.

      the design in this rendering isn't working for me at all. It looks more like a bad Corvette body kit to me. I'm hoping this is (or something a lot like it) is the next 928: http://www.autoexpress.co.uk/news/autoexpressnews/244090/reborn_porsche_928_is_fronting_up.html

      I saw my first Panamera in person today, and yes, it is as ugly in person as it is in pictures. Uglier than the Cayenne, which at least is supposed to be big. The Panamera is huge, ungainly, ill-proportioned, and not elegant like a big Benz or Rolls. I thought it was a Citroen, or possibly some new strange Subaru.

      The original 928 is still a good looking car. It has the right proportions, its classic. If you see one thats got a properly lowered suspension and 17-18" rims with modern low-profile tires it changes the entire look of the car.

      This rendering is cheesy, but honestly, its no worse than the production Panamera. Put a more modern shape to the B-pillar and I could see Porsche putting this in production. Yes, its ugly, but thats Porsche's thing these days.

      Make it a bit smaller and I'd be excited.

      Looks much better than the original 928 (ive always been more of a 944 guy).

      Would take, probably wouldn't buy.

      This is like how people called the Panamera beyond ugly. But once you saw the Panamera in person, it's not so bad. I do like this 928 render, a little busy for a Porsche but still very nice.

        I was right next to the Panamera at the concours d'elegance and my friend was sitting in it. It's ugly in person too.
        • 4 Years Ago
        Errr, no. The Panamera is *still* ugly and doesn't fit in the product lineup. It fell down the same ugly tree as the Porsche Toerag.

      I think the front and the rear are just severely mismatched. The creases on the front fender give the hood the illusion of being much longer than it probably is, which seems to throw the proportions of the car out of whack. It's almost like you would need a fully developed trunk and a smaller greenhouse to resolve that proportion issue.

      IMO, it's just not working at all in this render.

      I'd rather have one of the first 928s (the original styling), in Petrol Blue, but with the later GTS running gear. This new one is just too weird looking. Every once in awhile I see an old 928, and it still makes me want one. That and an unlimited bank account to pay for repairs like the notorious water pump.
