Porsche Super-Saloon!

I read a while ago that Porsche will be producing a super-saloon type car. Good idea I think, as it's a first for Porsche, although they'll obviously be stepping in to the unknown! Power for entry-level models is to come from the SUV’s 3.2-litre V6 engine. But most variants will use the Cayenne’s 4.5-litre V8, which will also be avail*able in twin-turbocharged guise, pushing out around 500bhp. A top-of-the-range 600bhp V10 car looks likely, too, as well as a hybrid. Clicky for picy!

a big car like this is gonna need some torque, and the turbo cayenne is already fast enough and its over 1000 lbs more than this will be

I like it, but why would they make a hybrid? If you're buying a Porsche, you don't care about spending an extra couple of bucks for gas...

I think it has something to do with manufactrers having to show to the Government that they are serious about environmental issues affecting the world...

It doesn't matter what people want. It's what they're going to get in the not too distant future!
