The Pajun will be based on the MSB modular architecture and will offer both AWD and RWD variants. In addition, it will make use of new modular gasoline V6 and V8 engine, which will probably all be shared with the Cajun. The V6 will feature turbocharging and direct injection and will displace anywhere from 3 to 3.6 liters. Sounds a bit like an Audi doesn’t it?
Output for the V6 will range from 400 to a full 550 horsepower, which is impressive considering the displacement. Meanwhile, the V8 will be a twin-turbocharhed 4.0-liter with about 600 horsepower. Sounds a bit like.... wait, we said that already.
You can be sure that diesel and hybrid versions are also in the works.
The Pajun will not strictly be a four-door sedan, as convertible, coupe and a shooting brake also on the way. This model will be key to both Porsche’s and VW’s sales ambitions, as production is expected to be at least 200,000 units per year. If that hasn’t impressed you, the German automaker expect to sell only 40,000 911 next year, and not even the mighty Cayenne can match that figure right now. We smell a mass-market Porsche here.
