The German based automaker Porsche is getting ready to put the Pajun into production but the model won’t hit the market anytime soon.
The fact that Porsche is planning to develop a smaller version of the Panamera isn’t a secret anymore and the model is now getting ready to be developed. The Porsche Pajun is expected to hit showrooms in 2016 at the very earliest and the model is a part of the company’s plan to sell 200,000 units annually by 2018, along with the upcoming baby Cayenne, the Macan, which will hit the market sooner.
The Porsche Pajun takes its named from the Panamera and it actually stands for “Panamera Junior” – “Pa Jun”. The model will be produced on Volkswagen Group’s next generation MSB platform. Rumors are saying that the new Porsche Pajun will get a variety of V6 engines under its hood, which will include a 260 HP and 320 HP 3.0 liter TDI V6 diesel, along with a 320 HP and 420 HP 3.0 liter V6 petrol. The model might also get a Turbo version, which should come with 520 HP and 502 lb-ft of torque (680 Nm) and it will be a rival for the BMW 5-Series, the Mercedes-Benz E-Class and, inevitably, the Audi A6. More details on the Pajun remain unknown for the moment.
