This is not a new Porsche 928. It's just an interesting sketch, found posted on the internet at Porsche Consulting's website. There are some new rumors about a two-door GT in the same vein of the Porsche 928, and this sketch is similar to some of the renderings that have been floating around. Of course, you toss a bunch of Porsche design elements in a blender, and it wouldn't be hard to come up with this vehicle.

The takeaway here is that there are likely hundreds, even thousands of drawings floating about in Stuttgart that show cars with no true bearing on production reality. Despite rumors that Porsche is working on a new 928 that may be a Panamera variant, it'd be a stretch to believe that this sketch represents anything about that project, barring specific knowledge. If it helps you sleep at night, go ahead and ascribe undue importance to it, but until anyone knows more, remember that this is just a cool picture on a website. Thanks for the tip, Ian!

      The question would be... AWD or RWD.

      AWD, it would use the central-located PDK, like the Panamera/Cayenne.

      With RWD only, it could revert to the better packaging and balance of a rear-transaxle. They could use the 997/987 PDK, similarly located at the back of the car, like the Cayman S... with a torque-tube through the center of the car, to the front-mid V8 engines.

      With a low-slung, angry-look front fascia, derived from the new Cayenne, and a shortened and lightened liftback coupe body, and long drawn-back quarter windows... active aero, active suspension, and other nice GT-coupe touches, and an interior split between the current Panamera/Cayenne, and the Carrera GT/918 Spyder concept.

      If they could build this car with a curb weight somewhere in the neighborhood of 3500lbs... no more than ~3850... they would be doing quite well to offer the V8 and V8TT engines.

      im guessing it would be available in 6 and 8-cylinders since the panamara is a v8!? finally a porsche that could do some real damage!

      Much more graceful rear-end than the Panamera. But then, most cars have more graceful rear-ends than the Panamera.

      Guess I better just accept that Porsche designers no longer know how to generate any front end design that doesn't look like the top slice of a 911, just at varying heights from the ground.

      Oh well.

      Prediction: It'll look like a Porsche.

      And that is in no way a complaint.

      "...thousands of drawings floating about in Stuttgart that show cars with no true bearing on production reality..."

      Well no sh!t.

      Have you guys ever worked in an office with a design staff? Of course there are literally thousands of sketches all over the place with sketches of things that will never see the light of day. That's what designers do... sketch, come up with ideas and brainstorm.

      Talk about a non-story.

      That looks like the new 911 (991).

      Porsche 928 driver - that's the V8 one, tall, slim hips, likes books with speedboats on the cover. Would like to meet someone for friendship - maybe more.

      What other company could put the same stinking nose on every single car they make and get away with it?

      I guess I'm just not seduced by the idea of Porsche. It was a nice design in the sixties, but nowadays it's just another retro design, right up there with Mustang and Camaro. Maybe when I'm old, fat, and bald, I'll change my tune.

      Don't anyone tell me about the 911 turbo. I will NEVER buy a rear engine car.
      I'm not a Porsche sheep that will swallow the company bull$hit.
      Imperfection pefectly engineered is just....... IMPERFECTION.

      Get the curb weight under 4,000lbs with the Panamera Turbo drivetrain and I'll buy one.

      AWD, 500hp, PDK, a back seat, and low 12 seconds or better in the 1/4 mile?
