Porsche Plans a Mid-engined Supercar

Porsche Mid Engined Supercar

In Stuttgart the guys from Porsche are planning a new mid-engined supercar that, if approved by bosses at parent company Volkswagen, will take it into direct competition with Ferrari, McLaren and Lamborghini.

Porsche says they will build a rather standard model followed by a high-priced, limited-edition supercar. The new two-seater is intended to be positioned above the 911 but below the the 918 Spyder. What’s discussed more is the possibility for a roadster and coupé version.

Porsche boss Mathias Muller recently said:

We’re looking to extend the range. We’ve got an idea to do another mid-engined model. We’re thinking above the 911 but below the 918 Spyder.

We have ideas on styling and design, which we will continue to develop in the coming months. We’ll also evaluate the economic side and then decide whether to push ahead.

  1. Sounds as a sound business plan! Hmm let me see… V8 3.7 litre, 450 bhp, hybrid technology, pdk (smaller unit), carbonfiber chassi, pccb brakes generation 3, in coupé and targa, cabriolet format, better interior space than 918, 200+ miles car, 0-100km/h in 3 seconds, shares the chassi with Lamborghini Cabrera, cost effective, main stream Porsche manufacturing process, which would be more than enough to win Le Mans or 24 Nurburgring races! Price 200000€ incl vat? It seems as Porsche could be the first one to fight it out wit McLaren, Ferrari and Lamborghini 4 real.

  2. The 911 will always be the Porsche we will love the most. Why not have a 911 with a mid engine ? The 911 GT1 is/was a great example, why not do another ? The Carrera GT was and is a great car but I think most Porsche enthusiast’s were pleased when the Porsche 911 GT2 RS was faster, the most brutal in the Porsche stable and once again it was and still is a 911. The new models are just that; the new models. The 911 will always be the one, a 911 mid engine super car is the answer ( just like the current rear engine car ).
