Porsche 928: Panamera-based successor coming?

Porsche 928
Street word has it that Porsche is considering a Porsche 928 successor based on the Porsche Panamera.

Latest sales figures show a decline in the number of entry level Porsches – like Boxster and Caymen – finding new homes, while flagship machines like the 911 and particularly Cayenne remain in high demand.

Though there is no firm date for the launch of a new 928, the firm looks set to base the new model on the Panamera chassis. Sporting three doors and a hatchback, the car would be a direct rival to the likes of the Bentley Continental GTC.

There’s no word on engines, however it’s possible that the model could usher in radical new technology as at the same interview the firm also explained that it was investigating the potential for powering its future cars with smaller, supercharged engines to help reduce emissions.
