A series of the new and next-gen Porsches are planned in the next four years
16 August 2010

The launch of the new Porsche 911 will kick-start the introduction of a whole series of next-generation and new Porsche models. Here, Autocar runs through all the car that the Stuttgart-based manufacturer is planning to release in the next four years.

See pics of the new Porsche models

2011Panamera hybrid and dieselGreener versions of Stuttgart’s jumbo saloon are designed to improve its market penetration in Europe (diesel) and the US (hybrid).

Cayman ClubsportHardcore version of the current Cayman won’t gain much power, but it will shed weight and receive retuned suspension for even better track-day prowess.

Also: New 911 Carrera/Carrera S

2012New Boxster/CaymanPopular roadster and less popular hard-top get new, slightly extended platforms to improve the cars’ cabin and luggage space. The production will also move in-house, from Valmet in Finland to Porsche’s own factory in Zuffenhausen back in Germany.

Also: 911 Cabriolet; 911 Carrera 4/Carrera 4S; 911 Turbo

2013Baby BoxsterVW BlueSport-based cars (roadster and coupé) will be new entry level, although their pricing may be closer to the current Boxster’s than first thought. Expect them to start at under £30k — but not by much.

928A Panamera-based ‘big GT’ hasn’t been signed off, but VW’s push to expand the firm’s production could give it the green light — if it thinks the Bentley Continental GT can live with more competition. A ‘softer’, front-engined V8 model would also allow Porsche to sharpen subsequent 911s.

Also: Facelifted Panamera; 911 Targa and 911 GT3/GT3 RS; Cayenne Turbo S

2014Facelifted CayennePorsche’s Touareg-based SUV has just been relaunched, but it’ll get a mild refresh to see it through into the second half of the decade. Expect light cosmetic revisions, plus further weight savings and improved efficiency. Downsized engines a possibility.

918 SpyderHybrid halo Porsche will make production, but working the tech will take until 2014, insiders say — and the price is likely to top £400,000.

Also: Boxster Spyder; Next-gen Cayman Clubsport

Another non-story. There is nothing in this article that has not been widely reported before by Autocar - expect perhaps the 918 being launched as far away as 2014. If it's going to take Porsche that long to get the technology working then there should be some potential owners out there worrying about parting with their £400k. The car will be old news by 2014 (like this article is today).
