Porsche is said to be developing a stretched variant of the Porsche Panamera. It will come with an extended wheel base. It is expected that the new version will offer more rear leg room as well as longer rear doors that boasts of wider aperture, altogether offering a comfortable drive.
The Porsche Boxster S Black edition has been made official, though with a clause. The car maker will make only 987 units of the vehicle, and this could make the car a rarity on the road.
Porsche is said to be thinking of introducing the diesel Cayenne SUV and diesel Panamera in the US. Porsche may take the decision soon and may launch the vehicles this year itself because U.S is the single largest market for the German car makers.
Following realization that Porsche’s current assembly plants in Zuffenhausen, near Stuttgart, and Leipzig are too small to meet their high demands, the company is now looking to start production from North America and China. The plan is aimed at hitting the predicted global sales of 200,000 units.
