A smaller Porcshe saloon or hatch would be perfect for me. I prefer a “car” now to SUV having had several SUVs. If Porsche would build a smaller Panamera and include performance versions to rival say the M3 and electric versions, say a a smaller Taycan, to rival the Model 3 then I could see myself back in the brand as I still need something to carry teenage kids in the back so the Cayman or 911 are no good to me.
+1
Until then the Model 3 actually fits that bill perfectly. While they are at it, they may as well make a small SUV/hatch version to rival the Model Y and Polestar 2. I'm surprised there is still virtually no competition in this sector.

When I said M3 rival I was of course referring to the BMW M3 with a nice engine not some appliance with an electric motor that falls apart.

I know full well you meant that old dinosaur, which has zero interest for me. The G80 looks like it has some grotesque aftermarket bodykit. What a decade ago used to be a good looking car now looks like it had way too much plastic surgery. The "designer" exhaust sound is pure comedy too and I'm not prepared to look that much like a bell-end while pottering around town. So come on Porsche, just get on with building this electric Cajun chicken!

Or please Porsche build us a nice petrol engined Cajun with a lovely smooth sweet sounding engine and a burbling exhaust.

Well I guess at least one of us is going to be disappointed.

I agree, a smaller version of the Panamera would be an excellent proposition. That's where Porsche are lacking in their model line-up.
Although, if all cars are electric, I wonder if the only differentiation will now be the interior quality and battery range. 🙉
Our stable:
- 718 Cayman GTS 4.0 - Jet Black Metallic / Aurum wheels (reg 2021)
- i30 N Performance Fastback - Shadow Grey (reg 2019)
- ex: Macan S Diesel (MY2016), Macan Turbo (MY2017), 991.2 Carrera S (2016), 718 Cayman GTS (2018),

Well there’s still ride, handling, performance and exterior to compare. The main difference is that the average performance level should be much higher across the board. You do lose the character of individual engines, but that was dying anyway in the modern turbo era.

Once the engineers have perfected hydrogen power plants that are cost effective all other power plants will become redundant, until then I'll stick with Petrol.
