The Porsche lineup is growing in leaps and bounds under our eyes. The Macan compact SUV, named after the Indonesian word for tiger, is almost ready. Next on the to-built list is a Panamera shooting brake, which will be shown as a concept in Paris next month.
But perhaps even more important as a volume car is the Pajun, which will arrive in late 2016 or early 2017 as a sedan and shooting brake.

The good news is that this car will be designed by Porsche from top to bottom, unlike the Macan that shares its platform with the Audi Q5.

New light has also been shed on the engine lineup, which according to British magazine CAR will be made up exclusively from V6 units. The diesels will be 3.0-liter TDIs producing 260 hp or 320 hp for the S model.

Meanwhile, the gasoline range will start with a 320 hp 3.0L and will move up to a 420 hp. CAR also says there will be a 520 hp V6 for the range-topping Turbo S, but this seems a bit ambitious.

Porsche wants to sell 200,000 Pajuns, shifting them with customers that would have otherwise purchased an Audi A6 or BMW 5-Series.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
