Porsche Panamera two-door GT coupe

Porsche released their two-door Panamera design in 2009, the Porsche Panamera two-door is based on the Porsche Panamera platform. Porsche might be looking at sharing tech with Bentley. Today those two ideas come together in a new interview with Porsche chief Matthias Mueller.

Porsche’s official website has leaked the first sketch of what appears to be the 2-door Porsche Panamera GT Coupe. The front of the vehicle in the sketch definitely hints at the Panamera and with the two-door layout it can only be the rumored Porsche Panamera GT Coupe. At this moment there are no other officially released details regarding the Porsche Panamera GT Coupe and the speculations are scarce.

The Porsche Panamera two-door idea of a successor to the 928 is always enticing, regardless of how likely or unlikely it may be for actual production. That likelihood is still fairly low, by the way, though Porsche is keeping the door open as a response to competitive brands.

Sharing tech with Bentley could further pry that door open, if a two-door variant of the Panamera platform should find a home with that brand as well. Parts purchasing and architecture sharing could benefit from economies of scale, though the benefit would mostly flow toward Bentley as the marque’s volumes won’t contribute much if anything to cost reduction for Porsche.

The Porsche Panamera GT Coupe will probably be powered by the V6 and V8 engines in the current version of the sedan and will also have a Turbo version. The Porsche Panamera GT Coupe will be offered with rear-wheel-drive and the optional AWD and will be equipped with the company’s new PDK gearbox.

As far as the exterior design goes, the front screams Panamera, but the rear end could be more 911 inspired. The Porsche Panamera GT Coupe will have wide wheel arches and will probably look more muscular than the current four-door sedan.

The new Porsche Panamera two-door Coupe is expected to go on sale in 2012. Some sources even speculate the new model could also spawn a convertible version. We’ll have more details on the new Porsche Panamera GT Coupe as soon as they become available.
