We Hear: Porsche Pajun Coming to Frankfurt as an EV Design Study

An electrified concept for the rumored baby Porsche Panamera is coming to the Frankfurt auto show, a new report suggests. The Porsche "Pajun" EV (Panamera Junior) will feature an electric motor, according to French website L’Automobile.

Although Porsche prefers hybrid powertrains to full EVs, the brand has built a few prototypes based on the previous Boxster, according to the report. The concept will feature a hatchback body style similar to the Panamera, though on a shorter platform. Though the baby Panamera will debut as a concept, L’Automobile says it could make it to series production.

The production model, which is rumored to arrive in 2018, will feature regular gas, hybrid, and pure electric powertrains. In an earlier report, we said the Pajun could feature a naturally aspirated 3.0-liter V-6 gas engine as well as a turbo version and a 3.0-liter turbodiesel V-6 engine sourced from Audi.

The electric powertrain will be shared with the similarly sized, recently confirmed Audi Q6 EV, which is said to provide just over a 300-mile range. Despite its sedan/hatchback body style, the Pajun will share its underpinnings with the Audi SUV.
