Porsche seems to have given the clearest hint yet that it intends to build big front-engined coupe in the style of the 928.
This sketch is on the opening page of the Porsche Consulting website and appears to show a 928 type coupe with strong 911 styling cues.
There have been long-running rumors that Porsche would spin-off a two-door GT using the same basic architecture that underpins the Panamera five-door.
Other sources have suggested that some senior Porsche engineers have been frustrated that the 911 is limited to six-cylinder engines and would like to build a front-engined V8 GT car which would more closely compete with rival models from Ferrari, Mercedes and Aston Martin.
Porsche has probably been encouraged by the strong sales performance of the Panamera, which should allow the company to easily hit its 20,000 per year target for the five-door model.
Porsche Consulting is part of Porsche Automobile SE and was spun off in 1992. Today it employs 222 people and turns over 61 million euro, working on projects including training and business consultancy as well manufacturing projects in the Automotive, construction and furniture industries.
