    • Porsche Pajun (Panamera Junior) set to be approved for production and coming in 2016 - Porsche M3/M4 rival?

      The Porsche entry-level sedan named Pajun is set to get the green light for production and will come by 2016. That seems a while off considering the Macan entry-level SUV and Cayenne little brother should be revealed as early as next year. Apparently Porsche wants to evaluate the model for around a year. The Pajun would no doubt mirror the drivetrain offering of the Macan which means 2.0 liter four-cylinder powerplants borrowed from the Audi/VW catalog and Porsche's own 3.6 liter turbo V6 version based on the Panamera V6.

      The Panamera already competes with the 5-Series, M5, E-Class, E63 AMG, Mercedes CLS, BMW 6-Series Gran Coupe, Audi A7, Audi A6, etc. This new model would be smaller and cheaper likely aiming at the 3-Series, A4, and C-Class although just like the Panamera likely much more expensive.

      No real surprise here as Porsche is planning a rapid model expansion in order to increase sales tremendously by 2018 as a part of Volkswagen's plan for world domination.

        I'd be all over this car with a 3.6 turbo V6.

        Turbo V6, all wheel drive, dual clutch trans, 3XXX curb weight. Ya, I'll find it hard to resist too.

        looks like more of a MB CLA competitor, especially with an upgraded engine

        Certainly would fall into that category but it will have the CLA pretty outgunned I think with a 3.6 liter twin turbo V6.

        It will be A6/A7/E class competitor not A4 etc.
