2017 Porsche Panamera Turbo Pickup Truck Render Is Not the First Porsche Pickup

The idea of a Porsche with a bed is the kind that can cause hate to spread like wildfire, so the 2017 Panamera Turbo pickup truck rendering we have here should be handled with care.
The pixel rearrangement comes from digital artist X-Tomi, who apparently decided to counter balance the charisma on the charisma of the second-gen Zuffenhausen machine.

Interestingly, the approach left the new Panamera with just two doors, having the potential to remind one of a set of Porsche spyshots we recently brought you. We're talking about the shorter Panamera prototype, which is expected to morph into a Coupe once it enters production. And as you'll see below, the 928 implications of the project have quite an unexpected aftermarket echo.

There's no reason to fret though. While Porsche may be on an expansion spree outside the 911 line-up, which has traditionally been rich, there are plenty of other segments that require the carmaker's attention (Cayenne Coupe, anybody?). So we won't see Zuffenhausen going all Lamborghini LM002 on us anytime soon.

However, even if some aficionado out there would be crazy enough to recover the shell resulting from the first serious second-gen Panamera crash (sadly, it will happen) and use it to transform this render into metal reality, we still wouldn't end up with the first-ever pickup wearing the Porsche crest.

And we only need to look back to less than a decade ago to remind you of a Porsche 928 GTS workhorse. As you'll be able to notice in the piece of footage at the bottom of the page, a car collector named Harry Thomas decided to commission a six-wheeler Porsche pickup.

And while the fabrication effort is top-notch, messing with one of the only 2,600 GTS 928s out there increases the abomination label risk of the project.

Before we end this piece, though, we have to mention that Harry wasn't the only one who decided to put a blue collar around the 928 neck, even though the other trucks based on the retro Porscha stick to the classic four-wheel formula.
