Early estimates on the price tag? Somewhere in the neighborhood of €400,000 – about $568,000 based on current exchange rates (yikes!). Car and Driver speculates that this exotic supercar will utilize a powerplant that produces over 600 horsepower, which should help push 0-60-mile-per-hour times into the three-second range, while top speed could hover as high as 220 mph.
This move should help keep Porsche purists happy, with the knowledge that a high-performance coupe will join a lineup of vehicles they're entirely in love with. Still, those vehicles (read: Panamera and Cayenne) supply the cash to build super sports cars. You can't have the sweet without the sour... and in this case, the sour is actually pretty sweet, too.
