Porsche is taking into consideration the possibility of launching a new model to slot below the Panamera.

It seems Porsche's Pajun (Panamera Junior) project is back on track as company boss Matthias Muller wants to take on the BMW 5-Series and Mercedes-Benz E-Class. However, Muller says "it would be a difficult decision" because Porsche already put in a lot of effort for Macan as they had to double factory capacity and upgrade the paint and body shops.

Rumors about a sub-Panamera model surfaced back in 2011 and indicated the model would cost 60,000 EUR. The same report mentioned its design would mimic the Panamera but on a smaller scale and pointed towards a 2016 launch. If green-lighted for production, expect the Pajun (will receive a different name) to ride on the upcoming MSB platform developed by the Volkswagen Group for the next-gen Panamera, as well as almost all future Bentleys and a new Phaeton.
