Didn't see this one anywhere and figured you'd like it :)


With the introduction of the 2003 Cayenne sport/utility vehicle drawing near, Porsche is seriously considering the addition of another vehicle to its broadening range by utilizing its SUV mechanicals and Leipzig production facility. This would mark the first front-engine car since both the 928 and 968 drove off to the autobahn in the sky.
Initially, power would come from a 4.2-liter/337-horsepower V-8, with a twin-turbo 4.2-liter/449-horsepower V-8 being added later. Production of the stunning mid-engined Carrera GT may open up 10-cylinder potential. The supercar shown at the 2000 Paris Motor Show boasted 558 horsepower, enough to put it and possibly a GT in rare ultra-performance company.

Such a premium 2+2 GT would compete against the Jaguar XKR, Mercedes-Benz CL, and Ferrari 456. Production depends on myriad factors, including Cayenne success, Carrera GT production, and the economy. If conditions are right, Porsche will put its indelible mark on the premium coupe segment with a grand tourer for the 2004 model year.

i heard about this earlier this year, i think Porsche would be very successful in this category seeing how many MB CL's, Jag XKR's are on the road. As for the 456M/A, it is just too pricey for this category.

If Porsche was to introduce this, they could give Mercedes a run for their money, esp with the turbo aspect, and if a V10 ever got in on this, booooyaaaaa!
