Porsche Pajun: Mini Panamera to fight Mercedes-Benz E-Class in the works

Porsche Pajun

Rumors are reheating about the Porsche Pajun, a small Porsche Panamera, which which fight the Mercedes-Bene E-Class.

German car magazine Auto Bild reports Porsche is planning build a sedan that will slot below the Panamera and compete directly with the Mercedes-Benz E-Class. Citing no sources (so a grain of salt is recommended), the magazine claims the four-door, codenamed Pajun, will cost no less than $84,000 and be ready for production no later than 2017.

In September 2011, Car claimed the Pajun could spawn coupe, convertible and even a shooting brake variant. Back then, rumors swirled about powertrain options that included a 550-horsepower V6, 600-hp V8, plug-in hybrid and an Audi-sourced diesel.
