Report – Porsche could deliver the Panamera Coupe on the same MSB platform as the Audi A9 Coupe image

The new MSB architecture developed in house by the German sports car brand is now looking ready to serve even plusher models – for example the possible coupe derivative of the Panamera as well as a flagship Audi A9 Coupe.

The newly introduced Porsche Panamera – now in its second generation – is the first model to use the new MSB platform, which should soon bring forth a long wheelbase version of the executive sedan. For the 2017 Geneva Motor Show we’re expecting to see the first ever Panamera station wagon – dubbed Gran Turismo, taking the name of the concept from 2012. The family is now reportedly growing in the years to come with the addition of a coupe derivative that will become the spiritual successor to the 928 model. There could also be a cabriolet derivative, as Porsche North America CEO Klaus Zellmer has already hinted the consumers love these latter two versions.

But the MSB architecture will also be allegedly “borrowed” to a model outside the Porsche lineup, as hinted by Michael Steiner, Porsche member of the executive board for research and development, during a recent interview. He remained mum on details, but conceded the MSB will be used by at least one other brand – most likely first for the Audi A9 Coupe, which should appear before the decade ends.
