Porsche Panamera Junior Pajun render rearWe are quite excited about the baby Panamera that Porsche is bringing out in the second half of the decade to challenge the Audi A6, Mercedes E-Class and BMW 5 Series. Essentially, it is a smaller, shorter, performance oriented sedan based on the Panamera platform.

Today present to us a special rendering of the future Pajun.

The insiders refer to the Pajun as a ‘911 with a big boot’. Both Audi and Porsche are collectively working on this project. As mentioned earlier, it will be based on a trimmed version of the next gen Panamera platform. The styling will be a mix of Panamera and 911 while much of the design features remain true to the Panamera.

Just like the Panamera, the Pajun engineers are aiming for a razor sharp four door sedan that will be the best handling car in the segment. At the same time, Porsche want utmost practicality from the Pajun.

Since the Pajun is a smaller model, Porsche may leave out the V8 engine and use only V6. The Pajun will be offered in both petrol and diesel range.

  • A 3.0-litre V6 diesel with 310bhp will be the diesel option.
  • The petrol lineup will be comprised by a 3.0-litre V6 bi-turbo with 414bhp. The same engine with a single-turbo will also be on offer with 318bhp. The latter will also be available in a plug-in hybrid model that will deliver an extra 100bhp.

A seven-speed manual gearbox or a dual-clutch PDK system will send power to the front or all four wheels.

The Pajun is likely to debut in 2016 with a price tag of GBP 50,000 (around 40 lakhs). Looking at Porsche’s aggressive plan for India, the Pajun is the brand's trump card for its price, size and positioning.
