Porsche Pajun Electric Car Concept to Be Presented at 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show

The Porsche Pajun rumor has been around for a really long time. It's been denied, confirmed and then denied again, but we could see a concept version of the fabled sub-Panamera model at the 2015 IAA.

September's Frankfurt event is already shaping up to be a fantastic car show with plenty of attractions. But a brand new Porsche models doesn't come along every day. What's more, this could be the car that drives Stuttgart's prancing horse brand into the future.

The Pajun will probably be called something else and the stuff under the bonnet will be unique as well. Rumor has it that it will be fully electric, packing a substantial battery pack with a range of up to 500 kilometers.

According to a report from French publication Automobile Magazine, the baby Panamera will be 4.8 meters in length, similar to an Audi A6 and 20cm shorter than the Panamera. Specific performance numbers aren't available, but it's reasonable to expect the electric motors form the R8 e-tron to be used again.

Even though Porsche are showing the Pajun concept, that doesn't mean it will enter production straight away. At the end of 2014, Porsche CEO Matthias Muller said the EV is "a difficult decision, because Porsche has just taken a huge step getting into the Macan market — not just developing the car but doubling the factory capacity, including the body shop and paint shop. It has been a huge effort for the whole company."

Production won't start at least until 2019. The thing is we don't actually want all this controversial electric stuff. All we need is a smaller sedan, one made with Porsche's attention to detail and excellent twin-turbo V6 engines.
