Porsche Wants to Go 7-For-7 by Fighting the 5

CEO says seventh vehicle would allow a new product launch every year.

With the Porsche Macan rolling off production lines inLeipzig and headed for the US, Porsche’s sixth car is poised to bring itsworldwide sales to an all-time high. But there's more to come from Stuttgart. Speaking at the Macan’s officiallaunch, Porsche CEO Matthias Muller said that a seventh model is likely to beintroduced in the near future. Adding a seventh model, he said, would fitperfectly into the company’s seven-year life cycle for its models, allowing it toroll out a new product every year.

If we had seven models we could have a major event eachyear, as well as the variants”, said Muller. Though he refused toelaborate, the most likely selection would be a BMW 5-Series-fighter, such asthe Pajun (Panamera Junior) which we recently told you about. Taking on thelikes of the Audi A6 and Mercedes-Benz E-Class, the Pajun should - in truePorsche form - offer more performance than its competitors. The Pajun has beenimagined in various shapes and forms, but is expected to mirror the designlanguage of the successful Panamera.
