According to a recent report, Porsche is developing a 2+2 model that is based on the 918 Spyder.

Details are limited but Automobile Magazine says model will be called the 984 and use a stretched of the 918 Spyder's carbon fiber chassis. This would allow engineers to install two rear doors and two rear seats.

A full-size concept was reportedly created by chief designer Michael Mauer and is said to have a 911-inspired greenhouse and a "daringly low roofline."

While the 918 Spyder has a complicated hybrid system, the 984 is rumored to use a mid-mounted 4.6-liter V8 engine that develops approximately 700 bhp (522 kW) and 443 lb-ft (600 Nm) of torque. It would be connected to a seven-speed PDK transmission that sends power to the rear wheels.

If the model is green-lighted, it could be launched in 2017 and cost approximately €350,000 ($467,460 / £299,595).
