Question Is it true?

I heard a while back from a friend of a friend that Porsche were considering a low cost coupe for the similar purpose of the 924 (entry-level porsche) built on the current model VW Golf chassis. Whats the say on your side of the pacific?

Thumbs up

right now these are rumours. there is a new 914 version planned that would use the VW/Audi 1.8t motor.

my GOD, if they built that, i'd be there in a second. i've seen, firsthand, 400Hp Audi 1.8t motors. i have pictures too

don't expect to see any of these cars for at least 3 or 4 years though.

Whereas Porsche is considering a fourth model line, they have already said that it will NOT be lower than the Boxster range in cost (that rules out the 1.8 built on the Golf platform) and it will not be a saloon; this is the report in issue 85 of 911 & PORSCHE WORLD. There was heresay a little while back about a new Porsche being built on the VW new Beetle/Audi TT platform, and ROAD & TRACK did a concept sketch not too long ago. The most likely possibility would be a new Porsche with an existing engine, being built on the TT frame, and being priced between the Boxster and Carrera.
